One of Diana's favourite sculptures named 'Feelings II'
Diana from Sunningdale had a reverse shoulder replacement with Mr Granville-Chapman and is now pain free and back in her studio making her ceramic sculptures.
Diana’s problems started two years before she finally had surgery. Diana played a lot of tennis over a number of years and was a long-standing ceramicist. Both activities demanded constant use of shoulders and arms. She had extreme pain coming from the left arm and shoulder which extended to her neck, shoulders and other limbs. Her GP referred her to St Peter’s Hospital where she had an Xray showing she had moderate arthritis. She was diagnosed with having a frozen shoulder and underwent unsuccessful arthroscopic surgery by another surgeon.
When her condition deteriorated further she was advised to get in touch with Mr Granville-Chapman. She looked online, found his website and read some very positive reviews. So, Diana contacted Mr Granville-Chapman’s secretary and booked an appointment.
When Diana saw Mr Granville-Chapman in the January, he explained her diagnosis - she did not have frozen shoulder, but had cuff tear arthropathy (degenerative arthritis of the shoulder that develops over time after the rotator cuff has failed). Mr Granville-Chapman explained that Diana needed a reverse total shoulder replacement to allow her pain relief and to restore her function.
Diana was desperate for her pain to stop and she booked in to have surgery at the end of February at BMI The Princess Margaret Hospital. She stayed in hospital for two nights and Mr Granville-Chapman came to see her before and after the operation, warning that she might be in a lot of pain afterwards.
Immediately after surgery Diana was able to resume her daily mile walk and, after three months, was back in her ceramic studio.
Diana said, “I was absolutely staggered how relatively pain free I felt after surgery. Although there was some pain for the first few days, I took some pain relief, had physio once a week and after that I was pain free. My arm and shoulder feel 100% better.”
Diana said “Mr Granville-Chapman is very straight-talking and patient. He tells you exactly what the problem is and how he will be able to treat you - he made me feel extremely comfortable. I would definitely go and see him again and I would most definitely recommend him to my friends.”
Mr Granville-Chapman was very polite and his examination and explanation of my symptoms and expected treatment was thorough
I found Mr Granville-Chapman to be very knowledgeable and professional. He put me very much at ease and explained all the options that I have thoroughly. He also told me to look for further information on the condition and procedures that I needed on his website, which gave lots of information and detail. It was also easy to understand for those without a medical background. I would highly recommend his services to anyone that has shoulder problems and requires a solution.
I attended for a repair of my right bicep tendon. After a thorough examination, Mr Granville-Chapman arranged an operation to be undertaken within 2 days which was extremely quick; he explained his reasoning which was both thorough and reassuring, explaining both the options of undergoing surgery and deciding to undertake conservative management.On the day of the surgery Mr Granville-Chapman was again very reassuring as although this is minor surgery I was still somewhat apprehensive. He came to fully explain the procedure and afterI woke up was quick to check on how I was doing.Overall I am very happy with the careMr Granville-Chapman
I have been very pleased with my treatment so far. Mr Granville-Chapman combines brisk efficiency with a pleasant, sympathetic manner. My operation, however, is still to come ...
From the initial consultation, through surgery on a fractured wrist, and now post-operative follow up, it has been a very positive and reassuring experience with Mr Granville-Chapman. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to someone else.
A first class clinician. A skilled surgeon with an excellent bedside manner.
A very pleasant Consultant who knows exactly how to make pain go away.
Mr Granville - Chapman has an excellent bedside manner. He engaged with my 12 year old son at an appropriate level and took the time to ensure that he understood the procedure and answer all his questions. He is thoroughly professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I have been very pleased with the attention I have received. Mr. Granville-Chapman has reassured me that my symptoms are normal. It is very easy to make appointments that suit me.
Mr Granville chapman I found be caring informative and professional I would recommend him to all if you have a problem don't hesitate to contact him you won't be disappointed.
I recently broke my right clavicle in a mountain bike accident and it was repaired by Mr Granville-Chapman by adding a plate on top of the bone. Having just finished the last post-op consultation, I can confirm that I have been very happy with the process all along. In particular, Jeremy took time to explain in detail why a plate was needed, what the procedure would entail, and also was very patient answering my questions comprehensively beforehand and after during the recovery phase. Would certainly trust this competent surgeon to fix any future fractures I might sustain.
Mr Granville-Chapman has looked after my 15 year old son brilliantly, explaining the surgery, recovery and best way forward, and Kate has been very supportive helping with logistics etc, thank you so much.
So far my experience with Mr Jeremy Granville-Chapman has been personal and informative with regard to the operation I will be having. I feel confident that my operation will be a success and for this reason I am very happy to have Mr Jeremy Granville-Chapman as my consultant.
