About Adrian Harvey

An amazing surgeon, my knees feel great and the only downfall is they aren’t so comfortable on a jet ski. The aftercare I received was fantastic and I was walking again 2-3 weeks after the surgery, this allowed me to be able to return to full time work once healed.

Kind Regards

Dear Mr. Harvey,

My grateful thanks to you and your team for my total knee replacement surgery.

My knee now functions as a totally normal knee, I am totally unaware of its presence, ( except when passing through airport security!). I have full flexion, extension and rotation and have resumed all my previous activities, hill walking, cycling, dinghy sailing, and canoeing. I am now totally restored to the active quality of life that I enjoyed prior to the knee degradation. A revelation!

What has been so helpful has been your restoration of the leg back to its normal length, overcoming the 1.5 inch shortening, caused by the deformity of the worn-out joint, a legacy from playing rugby!

Much praise too for the physiotherapy team, who with their help have I been able to restore full muscle strength and mobility to the leg. Cosmetically, both legs are now the same size and shape, without any swelling, the only clue to the knee replacement is an almost invisible scar over the knee.

Praise is also due to the ward team for their great care and attention and the anaesthetist Dr. Schuster Bruce.

With thanks
