Patient testimonials

"Saying I do to Nuffield helped me marry my wife" - Steven Cahill

“It’s changed my life.  I can’t begin to say just how grateful I am to Mr. Nicolas Brownson and Nuffield Glasgow.  There were times when I never thought I’d have my life back and for the first time in four years I am pain free.  One of the biggest moments for me is when my son said, ‘daddy can play wrestling with me now’. That meant the world to me, as did being able to walk down the aisle to marry my wife.”

"Thanks to Nuffield I am back to my best and better than ever" - Jayne Gillies

“I couldn’t believe it when the operation was over and all the pain I had been experiencing had gone just like that.  When the pain was at its worst I couldn’t see how it would ever get better. Before my diagnosis I had every eventuality built up in my head and none of them ended positively. Mr. Fraser Dean was able to put me at ease instantly and after my MRI and diagnosis, he talked me through the process and procedure I would go through and his reassurance was a great deal of comfort.”
