His information and explanation every step of the way has given me confidence and he has guided me on how to cope with the physical, and mental, trauma that my body has been through.
At every step of the long journey, Andrew was there offering advice and continually monitoring my progress. When I had concerns I knew he would be at the end of an email.
I had a knee arthroscopy 8 weeks ago and my consultant was Andrew Carrothers – I can’t rate him enough he is brilliant and such a nice person. If you have to have this op my advice would be to make your appointment with Mr Carrothers.
Andrew and his team were fantastic at making sure that at every stage I was fully informed, which has helped to ensure I can recover to a level, as near as possible to, when I was fully fit.
I can only give mine and my wife’s sincere thanks for his understanding and professional assistance through the stressful times and thank him for his dedication to orthopaedics.
“I was very apprehensive due to my relatively young age, but Mr Norrish fully explained the benefits in easy to understand language without ever making me feel under pressure to agree. Since the operation the aftercare I have received has been first class. Mr Norrish takes time to ensure I am happy with the progress I have made and allays any concerns I may have by listening carefully and answering any questions. I particularly like how he personalises consultations by remembering family details and where we live. I have full confidence in Mr Norrish and would recommend him very highly as a surgeon”
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Mr Norrish for looking after me. The surgery was very successful and I am very happy with the result (I had lengthening of Achilles tendon surgery). A part for being an excellent orthopaedic surgeon Mr Norrish is the kindness person I ever met. I was very nervous before the surgery but with his kindness and reassurance I had my surgery and my walking has improved tremendously. Many thanks also to the staff from the Spire hospital, Nuffield hospital and the secretaries.
“Such a lovely gentle spoken man. He has a way of instilling your trust in him … He is reassuring and explains everything fully in a perfectly understandable way. I feel privileged to have had him for my surgeon. He did a wonderful job and it’s a joy to be pain free”
Mr Andrew Carrothers carried out my first total hip replacement 25 weeks ago and my second, 8 weeks ago. The quality of my life has improved immeasurably as a result of these 2 operations and I feel fortunate to have been referred to Mr Carrothers who, together with his anaesthetist Dr Mahroof, have provided me with an exceptional level of care and service. The pain and mobility issues that I have suffered from for over 10 years have all but disappeared – I feel transformed! I believe that my health has been in the best possible hands throughout the entire process from referral through to ongoing review. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew Carrothers and his team to anyone considering orthopaedic surgery.
Thank you so much to Andrew Carrothers (orthopaedic surgeon,) for giving me such kind and caring treatment and for listening and finding out what was wrong. All the treatment I have had from all the staff at the Spire has been superb. I’m back on 21st December for more treatment. Keeping fingers tightly crossed!
