From the initial examination and treatment a few years ago to ease the ongoing pain in my right side to my full hip replacement operation and aftercare, Mr David Stock and his team have shown complete kindness, understanding and concern, as well as an incredible professional ability to aid full recovery. The same care was applied to my husband whose hip operation proved a little more complicated- the extra length David did not hesitate to go to both in and outside the ‘theatre’ to ensure all was well! We are both so very grateful that with David’s dedication and perseverance we can now enjoy our lives again. Thanks you so much David!

I was under the care of Mr Stock for my knee and hip. On December 31st I went to the physio where the knee was twisted which made my hip crack, after this my pain was very bad and I had to take 21 painkillers a day. I rang Mr Stock’s office and spoke to his secretary Olivia and said I was in severe pain and asked if I could see Mr Stock. I got an appointment within the week.
I visited Mr Stock and he took a look and said you are in trouble and I said yes. He said he would do his best for me. 4 weeks later I had my total hip replacement and his bedside manner was brilliant. 10/10. 6 weeks after operation went to see Mr Stock he said he was very pleased with me and I didn’t need my stick. 4 months later I am with no stick, no pain, no pills and getting better everyday. Mr Stock is a brilliant surgeon

Having performed an amazing total knee replacement on my previously very damaged left leg, here we are one year later and you have done it again on my right leg. It doesn’t seem possible that the operation was only fourteen days ago, I am walking around now pain free and really looking forward to the future years. My left leg, one year on, feels as strong and normal as ever, and I am sure that in a few more weeks my right leg will be just the same.
I am totally delighted with all that you have done for me and can’t thank you and your team enough. My legs are now straight and strong which has given me new confidence and ambitions.
Hopefully I will not need your services again, but would like to wish you and your team continued success for the future. I would absolutely recommend you as a first class orthopaedic surgeon

May I take this opportunity to thank Mr Stock for his excellent skilful surgical work and hip class aftercare resulting in pain free full mobility. My wife and I cannot thank you enough and it is a pleasure to have met you.

I have known David Stock for about five years, during which time he has given me two new hips and made a new man of me.
During the last few years I have been very ill with other health problems and he has always been there with help and advise whenever needed.
The efficiency of his Practice is excellent. Both David and his staff are all very friendly and approachable and I have always been seen promptly whenever I have requested an appointment. One couldn’t ask for more when help is needed

I recently had an ACL reconstruction due to a sporting injury. Mr. Stock and his team were very professional throughout and the level of attention I received was second to none. During my experience every stage was thoroughly explained and I was made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him
Two years ago I had a nasty skiing accident in France where I damaged both knees. Upon my return to the UK Mr. Stock organised an MRI and diagnosed that I had ruptured both ACL’s. I commenced physio but unfortunately both knees remained unstable so Mr. Stock agreed to do bilateral reconstructive knee surgery.
Obviously, this meant I was totally immobile for a while and had 3 months off work while I attended physiotherapy and rebuilt up the muscle in my legs. I have never looked back.
I’m fitter now than I have ever been. I can do anything I used to do and my knees are strong and pain free. I enjoy long walks, cycling, yoga, swimming, tennis and I am back to running 3 times a week. I plan to go skiing again with the family this year. I can’t wait.
I would like to thank Mr. Stock for his skill and patience. I’m not sure he was terribly keen on operating on both knees at one time as it’s very rarely carried out. But as a busy Mother of 4 I really did not have the time for 2 recuperations, I wanted it done in one go! It was very hard at the time but I am thrilled with the results. Thank you.
I want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to David Stock for his skill, not only as a surgeon, but also for his advice and friendship over the last two years.
I was unfortunate to suffer with ACL damage to my left knee whilst representing England at under 18 schoolboys football, which required surgery and resulted in my not playing again at any level for about 10 months.
It was through my own doctor, Dr. Simon Lowe, who pointed me in David’s direction in the first place, to which I am grateful. After a successful operation and a tailored physio programme under the skilled supervision of Philip Duffell (recommended by David), I was back playing competitive football for my university team and Forest Green Rovers.
David always feared that due to the relative weakness inherent in my knees, there would be every chance that a similar injury could happen to my right knee. Despite religiously following the rehabilitation routine and getting myself to reach peak physical fitness and strength, the worse possible scenario occurred repeating an identical injury to my right knee whilst playing for the university, which required similar surgery and rehabilitation.
To say I was gutted doesn’t even come close to describing how I felt, especially missing out on the rest of the England schoolboy season the year before and playing for the university where I had gained a full scholarship on the back of my football achievements. I am now coming to the end of the rehab programme, again under the watchful eyes of both David and Philip. Both of these guys have been magnificent and have shared my motivation and determination to get myself back on the road to recovery, both physically and mentally.
It’s through working with these special people over the last two years that I still have the dream of playing football to the highest level possible, but along the way they have also given me invaluable guidance and advice that has helped shape my thinking and approach for the future. Thank you.
