Big Toe Fusion Testimonials

First MTP Fusion
My symptoms were pain and swelling which made cross-country walking and tennis too painful to attempt. After Mark Herron fused the first metatarsal joint and the many weeks of swelling around the operation site progressively reduced, I am totally free of pain and can once again enjoy walking and sports. The only long term penalty was the need to discard a few pairs of shoes and any post-operative discomfort was soon overcome.

Revision First MTP Fusion
I would like to thank you for all the help and kind consideration that was shown to me last year when I was in need of an operation to repair my big toe joint. I came to see you after previous surgery at another hospital, which did not prove to be successful. I can only say that the operation, which you performed went extremely well and I am now fully recovered.
My stay at the Priory was only short lived, 2 nights, where I was treated extremely well by both yourself and the nursing staff. The advice you gave me on how to look after my operation and my follow up visits have proved absolutely wonderful. Had it not been for yourself and the Priory Hospital I do not know what I would have done. I am now back at work following my accident at my former job. I can only say thanks for all your help and cooperation when I needed it most.
