I want to thank Mr. Datta for taking such good care of me during both hip replacement procedures. It was my first major surgery and he helped calm my nerves. Both surgeries were successful and the after care was excellent. I am now completely pain free and able to do things I was not able to do for a number of years.

S Kirby

I must say my overall experience at Spire under Mr Datta was first class and I am very grateful to all involved

My care and treatment has been excellent. From my first consultation through to my surgery, I have been kept well informed and have had all the information I’ve needed to ensure the surgery went well and that I make a speedy recovery. I would highly recommend Mr Datta.

Mr King

I had a total knee replacement done and had the best care. Yes did experience a long wait to go to surgery but that's expected in most hospitals. Was in for 3 days and couldn't fault the care, nurses and cleanliness of the hospital. Lovely food. One nurse in particular always managed to make me smile
