One of Wave 105's listeners, who is also a previous patient of Mr Dalton, contacted Wave 105 to let them know how pleased they were with Mr Dalton's work:
"He replaced my hip in July and it's the best thing I have ever had done! I suffered with pain for 4 years prior to the replacement but now I can cycle miles, walk miles and am pain free. Mr Dalton is incredibly talented and anyone with concerns over the hip should not worry about the replacement being done as it really is THAT good when it's done!"
