My Lowchen Derek had TPLO surgery with Gareth in August of this year. I was really nervous about it because of the length of recovery and the risk of problems. Gareth explained all these really clearly and gave me a great deal of reassurance. The operation itself was a success and Derek has made a really quick recovery. At 8 weeks post op he has minimal lameness and appears almost back to his old self.
The follow up care has been great and I have found Gareth to be really responsive to any queries I have had. He has always responded quickly to emails and has allowed me to send videos of Derek’s progress so that I know everything is on track.
I would definitely recommend this surgery with Arthurs Orthopaedics.
Millie our 9 year old cockapoo became lame with a torn cruciate ligament. She had the same problem 3 years ago with her other leg. (a design fault with this model!).
Gareth was then working for a different practice and he undertook TPLO surgery and fixed her leg. An excellent job and you wouldn't know she had ever had a problem. When the other leg ligament went it was with no hesitation to track down Gareth who had now started his own business, Arthurs Orthopaedics and get him to fix things.
The new practice was amazing. Really caring helpful service. So clever to do this complicated and detailed operation and to have my supper, bouncy, fun loving dog back and running about on all four legs.
I can not thank and praise Gareth and Arthurs Orthopaedics enough.
I cannot thank Gareth and his team enough for the surgery they carried out on my deerhound x. She injured 2 toes on one of her hind foot, lateral collateral ligament rupture of proximal inter-phalangeal joints. The recovery has been a lengthy process with an external fixator in place for 6 weeks with a further 6 weeks limited exercise. At all stages Gareth and his team have been excellent which has led to Arya being able to lead a much better quality of life going forward. I feel blessed to have access to one of the most talented orthopaedic surgeons in the country. Once again many thanks to this most talented man with excellent support staff and allowing Arya to be able to run again
We had a lot of trouble with our vets who told us they could no longer help our dog (Bear) as he was in constant pain and should be put to sleep. We were referred to Gareth who took the time to talk us through what he could do and reassure us that we did not have to put our dog Bear down. Gareth corrected Bears failed surgeries and used clever imaging to show us how he could repair his growth deformity. Gareth's advice and knowledge has been invaluable to us and we can't thank him enough. 1 year on Bear is now living his best life pain free and this is all due to Gareth and his team.
I would like to say again, a big thank you to Gareth and the team at Arthurs Orthopaedics in Towcester. My little Pepper has just had an operation on her left leg for luxating patella and was looked after so well. She also had an operation a few weeks ago on her right leg and recovered very well because of the good care she was given.
Gareth and the team are first class and I would recommend to anyone.
