I had my Left Knee Replacement surgery this week on Mon 9 May. I had seen Dr Paul a few times prior to surgery where he explained the procedure to me. He is friendly & caring towards his patients and they come 1st. He did an an amazing job in theatre as not only did he do the knee replacement but also straightened my bottom leg (the tibia) which was very skew from my severe osteo arthritis. I now have a straight leg and wonderful knee replacement. Dr Paul Macnamara has an excellent reputation and I highly recommend him.

I require a knee replacement on my other leg as well and will definitely use Dr Paul Macnamara again.
