Recently Mr Polyzois performed a hand operation on myself( Oct 2020).I feel that the treatment I received was exceptional,his manner is very calm,he is approachable,a good listener.he is very professional in interacting with his patients and his staff.the whole experience was exemplary.i would recommend Mr Polyzois without reservation

The operation was a great success and the follow up with the physio gave me full movement of the shoulder. I had an arthroscopic capsular release of the shoulder under the care of Mr. Polyzois and am recovering really well! Thank you

I had Shoulder surgery in july and had a pre existing frozen shoulder. I am already seeing a big improvement in movement and would definateley recomend him.

I had shoulder surgery 7 weeks ago with Mr Polyzois. I now have full movement back in the shoulder and I am planning to go back to the gym at the end of October. I did all of my own physio and according to Mr Polyzois I am much further ahead than average at this stage in the recovery. The whole process was quick and seamless and I would highly recommend Mr Polyzois.

Mr Polyzois did an ACJ reconstruction of my right shoulder i had a grade 5 ACJ dislocation. Everything went well with the surgery and the recovery and i have regained full ROM and have started strengthening, operation took place six and a half weeks ago. I am happy to recommend him.
