"...I am now able to do everything I do twenty years ago"

Because of painful arthritis and foot deformity, I lost the ability to walk cross country courses so could no longer help my equestrian students.  After four successful corrective operations I am now able to do everything I could do 20 years ago and am virtually pain free thanks to Mr Yates.  I cannot recommend him more highly.

"My surgery has enabled me to walk pain-free after years of increasing pain"

I can thoroughly recommend the podiatry services of Mr. Yates at the BMI Ridgeway hospital. All aspects of my procedure, from the initial consultation through to the post-operative after care, was dealt with a high level of professionalism and efficiency. I felt fully informed of everything I needed to know. My surgery has enabled me to walk pain-free after years of increasing pain. I wouldn't hesitate to use this practice again if I needed to.

"I am absolutely delighted to see the foot looking so straight and normal"

Mr Ben Yates was my consultant and surgeon for my recent left foot bunion removal and surgery on two toes. I had very prompt and reassuring pre op consultations followed by surgery on April 27th 2015. After an overnight stay in hospital,which was my choice, I went home and had no pain whatsoever from my foot. Advice was given over exercise and rest. there was some swelling,but as predicted this went over the next eight weeks. Follow up consultations were always on time and I was received with courtesy and helpful advice on each occasion . I had the bunion from childhood and I am absolutely delighted to see the foot looking so straight and normal. Thank you.

"The treatment has been a great success and after months of pain, I am now walking well"

I recently had surgery on my foot to straighten my toes and remove bunions at the Ridgeway hospital by Mr Ben Yates.  I was admitted at 12.30 pm and had my surgery and was back home by 8.00pm.  The treatment has been a great success and after months of pain I am now walking well and my shoes fit properly just 8 weeks later.  I wish I had had it done earlier.

"After surgery on both feet I am now pain free and I so wish I had contacted Mt Yates sooner."

After suffering continuous foot pain for 18 months I was referred to Mr Ben Yates at Ridgeway Hospital.

The whole process was fully explained all questions answered and re-assurance given every step of the way.
After surgery on both feet I am now pain free and I so wish I had contacted Mr Yates sooner.

"...I found Mr Yates to be very reassuring and professional"

In September last year I was referred to Mr. Yates following problems with a torn tendon in my left leg and severe hammer toes on both feet which necessitated two operations, one on each foot. From my first visit following x rays and an MRI scan he arranged the first operation, and from that time to the final follow up after my second operation in March I found Mr. Yates to be very reassuring and professional. I have been very pleased with the results achieved.

 

With many thanks

"...I am very grateful to be free of the constant pain"

Please pass on my thanks to Mr Yates. After suffering for over a year with intense plantar fasciitis, no end of physiotherapy and stretching, the three sessions of shockwave therapy I had this autumn have eliminated my symptoms.

 

I have no idea how it worked but I am very grateful to be free of the constant pain that i had experienced for the previous 14 months.

"...I am very grateful to be free of the constant pain"

I highly recommend Mr Yates for his surgical skill and compassion.  I was a club foot  baby and years later problems ensued. Flat foot led to arthritis, other complications and ongoing pain. This impacted me greatly with 2 young boys and a full time job where I was on my feet. After 4 operations my quality of life has improved greatly. In Lockdown I have been enjoying long walks, something I could not have achieved in the past.

 

Thank you Mr Yates , toes crossed I won’t have to see you again. But if I do, I will not hesitate to get in touch as you have helped me so much

"...the whole process was smooth and uncomplicated"

I was more than apprehensive about having foot surgery. Mr Yates immediately put me at ease. Fully explaining the procedure.

 

The whole process was smooth and uncomplicated. His attention to detail and patient care is second to none. Could not recommend him more highly.

"... the satisfaction of being able to freely and comfortably walk again in smart shoes is indescribable."

Years of pain and inability to wear smart shoes are over after Mr Ben Yates operated to remove a bunion from my right foot and straighten the adjoining toes.
I may have 'half the contents of Mr Yates' toolbox' in my three toes, but the satisfaction of being able to freely and comfortably walk again in smart shoes is indescribable.

 

Mr Yates' skill and the Ridgeway's care and attention was second to none. 
 

Yours
