I found the doctor's calm and reassuring manner helped allay my anxiety

5 50 Hip Replacement

Having witnessed first hand the amazing results achieved by James Lewis (he has replaced both my husband’s hips and both knees). There was no hesitation in asking Dr Lewis to perform my right hip replacement.
As a very nervous patient, I found Dr Lewis’s calm and reassuring manner helped allay my anxiety. It is now three weeks since the surgery and feel so well, I have to hold back from pushing myself too far. Thanks go out to Dr Lewis and his team for getting me back to normal life.

The doctor and his team did an amazing job to reassure me and relieve me of my fears

5 50 Hip Replacement

I underwent a total hip replacement surgery by Dr James Lewis on 22 September 2021 at Goring Hall Hospital. Needless to say I was very apprehensive about the procedure, but James and his team did an amazing job to reassure me and relieve me of my fears. Special thanks also to Gavin Allen the Anaesthetist and his assistant Ollie (Oliver) who burst into song when he realised I was Welsh and feeling overwhelmed with nervousness. Next thing, I wake up in recovery being looked after by the lovely Polly.

The operation went very well and I was discharged on the 4th day. James managed my pain relief medication extremely well as I am super sensitive to strong pain meds. I was walking around my home without support within a few days and then the promenade within a week, slowly building up strength, distance and confidence. I am one month post op today and doing extremely well. It’s wonderful to be pain-free again and my scar has healed up beautifully.

I highly recommend Dr James Lewis and his team at Goring Hall. I feel extremely fortunate to have had him as my surgeon and special thanks to friends who highly recommended him to me. I will certainly choose him again when my left hip needs doing in the foreseeable future. With deep respect and enormous thank you to Dr James Lewis and his incredible team.

Thank you to the doctor once more for giving me my life back

4.5 50 Hip Replacement

I have had both knees replaced by James Lewis. So, when I needed my right hip replaced, I thought he was more a knee specialist than a hip. He always came over very professional and made me feel at ease, explained everything clearly. So, on May 1st I put my trust once more in James and his team, I had a full right hip replacement, and I am so pleased that I did. I suffer from fibromyalgia myalgia so my pain threshold is quite a complicated affair. James managed my pain with outstanding results- I have never had such an easy time of anything else in my whole life. Thank you to James once more for giving me my life back.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Thank you for sharing you experience - first hand! It means a lot to me and is helpful for those in pain looking at their options. We continue to innovate, always searching for incremental improvements. Frequently patients are "amazed". Thank you for putting your trust in me, I am pleased I have been able to help you. Thank you again. James

The wound site healed beautifully and my mobility slowly improved

5 50 Hip Replacement

I had my right hip replaced on the 21st April 2021(sorry I have taken so long to write a review, life has taken over!) as covid cases were coming down and I felt I could no longer live with the constant pain, lack of sleep and limits on my life that my hip was imposing.

Through an internet search and careful research, I was in a privileged position to be able to choose my surgeon. Mr Lewis really stood out as a talented, caring surgeon in whom I could place my trust and I certainly was not proved wrong.

After a long telephone conversation with Mr Lewis where the operation was fully explained; questions were answered and much information was then emailed through for me to digest; I was left with a very positive mindset, so my operation was booked.

My care and treatment at Goring Hall hospital were second to none and I thank everyone there for making my short stay so comfortable. The operation went smoothly and the very next day I felt I already had confidence in my new hip as I was put through my paces by the physio. Thus it was time for the home to continue my recovery.

At home, following all the advice, I recovered well. The wound site healed beautifully and my mobility slowly improved. The two follow up phone calls with Mr Lewis again gave me confidence. Just under 7 weeks later I was back to work in school. The ten-week post-op was a real milestone for me when I was able to sleep peacefully again. It was heaven. Now at 3 months plus I am out enjoying country rambles with my dog and friends with no pain in my right leg... it's wonderful.

I cannot thank Mr Lewis and the team at Goring Hall enough and I do feel privileged to have been under their professional care. Such a skilled surgeon with so much attention to detail.

He is pain-free and his movement far exceeds what we hoped he would achieve

5 50 Hip Replacement

Dear Mr Lewis,

Thank you so much for boldly going where no surgeon would go before!
You performed a hip replacement on my cousin,(4 weeks ago), who has severe learning difficulties. We had been told by other surgeons that because of the extensive degeneration of his joint that replacement surgery wasn't possible and a more palliative approach was recommended.

We always knew that any procedure wouldn't be straightforward, however, we have been surprised and amazed, in equal measure, at his progress to date. He is pain-free and his movement far exceeds what we hoped he would achieve. Before the operation he was almost wheelchair-bound; you have given him a new lease of life!

The care he received at Goring Hall was exemplary and the Team could not have done more for him, including the catering staff and housekeepers.

A special mention to Dr Aash who's bedside manner and caring approach was truly heartwarming. We would also like to thank Laura the Learning Disabilities coordinator who was a constant source of support for him throughout his journey.

Thank you all for your kindness and outstanding care.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Dear Gail, Thank you for choosing and trusting me to help your cousin who has severe learning difficulties. It was to joy to look after him. Thank you for your kind words to the team and of course coming down to our centre at Goring Hall. Laura does indeed warrant special praise, we are lucky to have her. I am pleased that his progress exceeds expectations. We aim to amaze! It shows how debilitating hip osteoarthritis is and how modern hip replacement can restore quality of life - in all its facets. I'm so glad he is on the mend and pain free. James

All his staff gave me 100% care and attention throughout my short stay

4.5 50 Hip Replacement

My hip replacement was on the 2nd June. Mr Lewis and all his staff gave me 100% care and attention throughout my short stay and they couldn't do enough for me. The food was 1st class. Now for getting back to normal and hopefully not too long before I go back to work. Thanks once again.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Thank you for sharing your first hand experience. You are quite right that it is not only want happens "behind the scenes" in the theatres but the whole experience. I wish you the very best in your recovery. James

I made an amazing recovery and have not looked back since 2016

5 50 Hip Replacement

I had a right hip replacement in November 2016. After doing some research on the Web I chose Mr Lewis because his approach to hip replacement at the time was different and in addition to the Orthopaedic surgical training he had a Masters degree in bio-engineering. This was important to me. I chose well. I made an amazing recovery and have not looked back since 2016 until very recently when my left hip needed replacing.

14/04/21
My experience with the left THR was even better. Mobilising was quicker as I was able to do without sticks two days after discharge. Today my left leg is behaving as normally as my right and I am now relieved from the awful pain I experienced over ten months. Goring Hall is a C19 free hospital and I had every confidence of returning there.

I cannot praise or thank Mr Lewis, his anaesthetist and the Team and the hospital enough. It is like a home from home experience. No stone was left unturned in the provision of pre and post-op information and I will continue to recommend him to any friend or patient who suffers from hip or knee osteoarthritis.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Hello Jenny, Thank you for taking the time to share your real life experience. We know there are a lot of people really struggling with the horrible pain of hip arthritis looking for information on what is it really like. Stick free at 2 days and at 14 days pretty much a full recovery! Remarkable. We treat the hip and soft tissues with "kid gloves", use custom made equipment to allow us to do so and do the operation in a unique way- this amounts to other things reducing soft tissue stretching. Thank you for your comments regarding information- it has been a privilege to look after you and I wish you the very best for the future, James

With my new hip, I am getting back to normal so quickly

4.5 50 Hip Replacement

I can't praise James Lewis and his team enough. My hip replacement has simply been trouble and pain-free. With my new hip, I am getting back to normal so quickly. I was only in hospital overnight and able to walk with the aid of sticks just a few hours after the operation. The care I received from Mr Lewis was exceptional and anyone facing this operation can do so with confidence.
Thank you all again

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Thank you so much for your kind words and positive encouragement for others worried about recovery. It really is appreciated and valued. Modern muscle preserving hip replacement with accurate reproduction of geometry- plus a few other tricks! makes recovery so much better and quicker. Thank you for putting your trust in me and the team, James

Feel confident that in a few weeks I will be walking our dog again

5 50 Hip Replacement

I had a total right hip replacement on 17th March. I cannot thank Mr Lewis and his team enough for how this has restored my quality of life. Mr Lewis explained thoroughly what would be done before, during and after the operation, and saw me shortly before and then after to explain how things had gone. Although it is only two weeks ago I can (and have been since last week) walking unaided without sticks and have been pain-free from day one of the operations.

I had terrible pain in my right knee due to a very badly worn right hip which made me walk very badly and for very little distance without feeling exhausted but since the operation, I am back to how I should be - walking properly and being able to do many jobs around the house, in fact at the moment I feel so good that I have to watch that I don't get too carried away and do too much! I am building up how far I can walk each day and feel confident that in a few weeks I will be walking our dog again - something I have not done since last October.

I would also like to say how good Goring Hall was both before the operation - X rays, Pre-operation appointment check-up and the Covid testing two days before admission. All the staff on Ilex ward were very caring and extremely helpful in my recovery and I could not fault in any way my two-night stay.

I was recommended to Mr Lewis by a family member and a friend and so glad I was. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Lewis to anyone with hip or knee problems.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Thank you for you detailed and positive feedback to the whole team. We are blessed to work with a great group of people. I often say we are big enough to carry out very high quality work but small enough to retain a family feel. A real sweet spot which is palpable and comes across. Hip osteoarthritis can cause a wide range of problems. Hip arthritis will often cause knee pain and indeed back pain. I’m so pleased you are getting your life and the things you enjoy back. I wish you every bit of joy and pain free living. James

I am and have been since the operation, without pain, and I am already walking without sticks

5 50 Hip Replacement

I am 64 years of age.

I had a hip replacement two weeks ago at Goring Hall hospital. I cannot recommend James Lewis and his team (to include theatre staff, nursing staff and physios) highly enough.

I am and have been since the operation, without pain, and I am already walking without sticks or crutches. As and when I need my second hip replaced James will be my first port of call.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Brilliant- thank you for sharing your recovery after modern hip replacement. It can be difficult to imagine walking stick- free, and pain free 2 weeks afterwards. Things have come in along way, preserving the muscles and getting the geometry right make a huge difference in recovery. Thank you for putting your trust in me and the team. I wish you every bit of happiness in you new pain free life, James

My care was first-rate at all times

5 50 Orthopaedist Consultation

Once again I returned to Mr James Lewis, the best hip replacement surgeon in the country and was not disappointed! My recovery after just 2 weeks is fantastic. Prior to surgery, I was totally reliant on crutches and in just 2 weeks post-surgery I am walking unaided! The staff at Goring Hall are also very professional and enabling. My care was first-rate at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend my surgeon Mr James Lewis and all of the staff at Goring Hall West Sussex.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Wow - and thank you. There are many fine surgeons in the UK. It is true that I do do things a little differently as it makes a difference to recovery and outcome. Safer too! Thank you for choosing us to help you with your pain. Attached to every hip is a real person with a real story and soul. Glad to have met you, James

I was able to stand and walk within hours of operation

5 50 Hip Replacement • Paid: £12261

I had a total hip replacement just over a month ago. The procedure was carried out by Mr James Lewis who prior to the operation had sent me a detailed explanation of what the procedure involved, which was very reassuring. I was able to stand and walk within hours of operation and was completely pain-free 2 weeks post-operation. All the staff I encountered were friendly and professional and my short stay at Goring Hall was comfortable.

Treated by: Mr James Lewis

Thank you for sharing your recovery which helps people and indeed their loved ones just what is now possible with modern hip replacement. I know it takes time to write, I am grateful. Hip arthritis is truly miserable - and fortunately very treatable. Thank you for your comments on a detailed understanding, it really helps with a relaxed experience - a bit like returning to a familiar place as opposed to a new place. I will add video explanations very soon to support this. Thanks again :-). James

I can now walk a mile twice a day with a little coffee break in the middle

5 50 Hip Replacement • Paid: £1196100

I had a minimally invasive hip replacement 12 days ago. I was walking without the frame (the physio carried it!)less than 24 hours after surgery. I can now walk a mile twice a day with a little coffee break in the middle. Just amazed and so grateful. So different from the hip replacements I nursed at Barts in the 60/70s. Chose Mr Lewis as so many golf and tennis friends had had highly successful surgery under him. Fell very lucky to have had the op in spite of Covids best attempts to thwart me!
