Jochen is a very experienced surgeon. He has a great approach with his patients and puts them at ease. He has a great sense of humour too!

Mr. Fisher is a very approachable and skilled upper limb surgeon. He is excellent educator and provides patient centred care.

Mr Fischer is a gentle man who explained, during consultations, my results, options, potential risks, expectations and made suggestions of ways forward regarding my arthritic shoulder. The decision was made to have a full shoulder replacement. He saw me several times during my hospital stay making sure I was comfortable with treatment, pain management and plans to discharge. The surgery went extremely well, I'm now 8 months on since my surgery and have been discharged. The procedure was explained initially that it was mainly to reduce the pain with no guarantee of more mobility. In my case the surgery has delivered in excess of these. I am pretty much pain free by comparison, my mobility has a good range now. I have to say, Mr Fischer can play his part in performing his amazing the surgery, however, it is down to the individual to commit to a fairly long, and sometimes, challenging recovery, listen carefully to the physiotherapist, don't do too much too soon, work hard several times every day with the given exercises. Hopefully you will recover well too. I also found a good sports massage therapist can help with adhesions, scar tissue and muscles during the slightly later stages of recovery, which can help towards mobility.

Absolute fantastic consultant cannot thank you enough for your expertise and care.

Mr Fischer very pleasant consultant. My operation went very well and the aftercare was good. So far the follow-up care has been very good.

A fantastic level of care from start to finish and delivered by a thoroughly lovely man. I had surgery for Carpal Tunnel syndrome and the surgery itself was ridiculously quick, efficient and with a great outcome both in terms of speed of healing, clean scar and return of sensation. At every stage everything was explained clearly and at no point did I not understand or have concerns over any aspect of my treatment.

I found Mr. Fischer to be straight forward in explaining the procedure for my hand. Surgery was carried out quickly and follow up physio very good. My thanks.

Very prompt and caring attention with excellent results.

Mr Fischer was excellent. Thank you very much for your expert advice and treatment.

Excellent. The first hand operation by Mr Fischer was excellent and far better than previous operations by other surgeons. This was the reason I traveled to Macclesfiel rather than a local hospital and this hand operation looks just as good.

After diagnosing my problem Dr Fischer detailed in full the procedure I was to have. He visited me pre op and also post op to explain exactly what had taken place. He is professional but also approachable.

I was looked after very well.

Nice friendly "bedside" manner. Sense of humour. Dealt efficiently with my problem on each visit.

Happy with all my treatment, Pre op, operation and post op.

I was really worried that I would not be able to do such a lot of things I took for granted ever again following my accident on my shoulder. Mr. Fischer, who is an excellent and vastly experienced surgeon, operated on me. Even though it was found to have a number of abnormalities, I am now enjoying most of my movement back which is virtually pain free.
