I cannot speak highly enough of the skill and expertise of Mr Allardice. I have been under his care since 2013, initially with severe bilateral hind foot and mid foot arthritis in my left foot, for which I underwent a triple fusion. This was followed by a hind foot and mid foot fusion of my right foot in January 215. I then developed severe arthritis in my right ankle, leading to the collapse of the lateral part of the talus. As the ankle was significantly deformed and painful, I underwent a reconstructed fusion, with bone grafting in 2017. Each procedure has been a great success and I am delighted that I am pain free and mobile again. In carrying out each operation, Mr Allardice had clearly considered carefully how to proceed, and at each pre-operative and post-operative consultation he spent time using the x-rays on screen to explain to me, in detail, how he was going to operate, and again the outcome post-operatively. He is caring and reassuring at all times, and I would highly recommend him as an orthopaedic surgeon of note.

“It was a real pleasure being treated by Mr Allardice for my torn achilles. Our consultations were relaxed. Mr Allardice explained clearly where I was on the road to recovery. He took the necessary time to make me feel comfortable and confident I was in safe hands. His ankle expertise meant that I avoided the need for surgery. I am now back to normal and walking again with no limp. It is my pleasure to recommend Garth. Thank you very much for looking after me, Satinder.”

"After over a year with pain in my ankle that prevented me from playing sport and participating in geology field trips, I was recommended by a consultant friend to see Mr Garth Allardice at the Clementine Churchill. The professional service I have received since then has been exemplary. Mr Allardice sent me for several scans and immediately diagnosed that I had fractured the calcaneus bone in my foot. This had not been picked up at the initial x-rays, carried out by the NHS, when I originally sustained the injury. He discussed the various options open to me in a direct but courteous manner, so that I could fully understand the problem. It was an unusual type of break that, with the ligament still attached to the bone and pulling it away every time I walked, was unlikely to heal, with just rest and immobilisation. I selected the surgery option, which required removing the small fragment of broken bone and re-attaching the ligament to the remaining bone. This can be a challenging procedure, but my confidence in Mr Allardice’s capability was fully rewarded. The procedure has been a complete success. Eight weeks after the operation and with the associated physiotherapy, my foot feels back to normal again. I have no pain and am contemplating playing rugby once again. This was my first experience of hospital and operations, and I can say that Mr Allardice and his team were professional and friendly, putting me at complete ease before the operation. As a bonus, the scarring from the operation has almost disappeared, after using the cream he recommended. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Allardice to anyone with an injury to their foot or ankle."

"I had suffered with my ankle for about three years and after a visit to my GP he recommended an appointment with Mr Garth Allardice an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Mr Allardice recommended that I had an arthroscopic right ankle fusion. This operation was performed on the 17th November 2016. After surgery I made excellent progress and I did not experience any pain and I am now back to playing golf several times a week, have been walking and hiking in Cornwall and regularly walk my dog. Seven months after the surgery I am still not experiencing any stiffness of the ankle joint or any pain. I am extremely satisfied with the results and would highly recommend Mr Garth Allardice".
