Mr David Gordon

Mr David Gordon Orthopaedic surgery Consultant, Bushey, Watford, private hospital specialist.

"It has now been 12 weeks since the operation. The wounds have healed without any trouble. I followed Mr Gordon’s post operation instructions to the letter and consequently the operation has been a success, better than I could ever have hoped for – I have no pain in my ankle! I am now undergoing a course of physiotherapy to strengthen the ankle and improve my walking, as for a long time I have been favouring my good leg.

I would like to thank Mr Gordon and the staff at Spire Bushey Hospital, for their care and professionalism throughout my time with them."

Mr C B, Arthroscopic Ankle Surgery (August 2013)

"Improvement in my ankle has continued and 6 months from my operation I am able to walk without the discomfort that I had suffered with for too long and my ankle has been improved above and beyond anything I had hoped. I count myself extremely lucky to have Mr Gordon treat me. Thank you so very much Mr Gordon."
