− RH (6 weeks after TKR Apr 2017)

"My left knee has been totally replaced by Mr Gordon Shepard at Euxton. Through out all stages of my treatment I found him to be relaxed, friendly but above all totally professional. He outlined the risks allied to the procedure and put me fully at my ease. The process was exactly has he outlined it from start to finish. i left the ward the day following the operation after passing the stair test, and returned home. Post op I have made excellent progress. My scar is very neat , has healed completely. I stopped using my crutches within the second week and have not used them since. I cannot thank Mr Shepard, and his team enough for their work. I waited some time before undertaking this procedure, with quite a degree of pain. Had I known it would be as it turned out I would have had it done three years ago. Thank you again."

− AC (6 weeks after TKR Apr 2017)

"Excellent service and treatment all round. My initial consultation was on 30th March 2017 and my actual procedure was only just over 3 weeks later on 24th April. I have now been signed off by Mr Shepard (9th June) and my knee feels so much stronger following the procedure and the follow-up physio appointments. Thank you so much."

− GW (6 weeks after arthroscopic surgery Apr 2017)

"Mr Sheperd's professionalism and friendlyness put me at ease immediately. He explained all the procedures thoroughly and filled me with total confidence. I have had replacements in both my knees in the last 9 months, both of which have been very successful. I am now well on the way to full recovery and free of arthritic pain. Thank you very much indeed. "

"My knee is brilliant with no more pain. Can't believe I put this off for 4 years and after only 4 weeks feeling great. Walking tall again! Thank you Mr Shepherd and your team. "

− BA (4 weeks after TKR Mar 2017)

"I am 43 years old and had a football injury at 21 years old. I had snapped my ACL but Bolton Hospital did not see that. Later in my life I had numerous operations, ACL repair, microfracture, clean outs etc. It got to a point where I struggled to walk down the road, holidays ruined etc because of the pain, doctors saying you are to young to have a knee replacement. Then I met Dr Shepard who in my words is a god to me. He had faith in me to give me a knee replacement and I cannot thank him enough. My life has transformed, I walk normal now I do the things I want and no pain at night. Don't get me wrong, it aint easy after the op you need to move that knee straight away and DR Shepard is the man to get your life back on track. Thank you Dr Shepard :)"

− NH (6 months after TKR Oct 2016)

"As I right this testimonial I am 6 weeks post op partial knee replacement, back at work , virtually full range of movement plus driving my car again. The hole procedure from start to finish has been to the highest standard. I would like to thank Gordon and his team personally for the life changing operation he has undertaken on me. Thank you Gordon this operation as exceeded all my expectations, as I look forward to a pain free future."

− CE-W - (6 weeks after PKR Jan 2017)

"This surgeon is a genius. He operated on me on 3 January 2017 giving me a total hip replacement. Within a fortnight I had stopped taking painkillers, and within three weeks I had ditched my crutches, much to the amazement of the Physiotherapy Department. Since then I have been virtually back to normal. I saw Mr. Shepard on 22 February and was discharged from his care. I am so grateful to him for relievingme of the pain I was having pre-operatively, and for the new lease of life I have been given. His attitude to me while I was under his care has been that of a true gentleman."

− MD (6 weeks after THR Jan 2017)
