Mr Chipperfield has made a huge impact in my treatment and without his medical experience I would still be in pain.

Alex Chipperfield is first class. This is my second hip operation which was very different from the first (different surgeon) and my pain levels were excellent.

After 3 years of dealing with Mr Chipperfield, I can say he is a consultant I respect and trust.

Mr Alex Chipperfield must be at the top of my list as best consultants. I have had the other hip replaced (very good) so I have had the experience of this type of surgery.
