"I can not speak highly enough of Mr McDermott and all the staff of London Sports Orthopaedics. Mr McDermott provided care and assistance that went above and beyond what I expected. While clearly an exceptional surgeon, I believe his fantastic bedside manner is what sets him apart from others. I was made to feel part of the decision making process and Mr McDermott answered my many questions without fail. I would highly recommend anyone to use London Sport Orthopaedics and, in particular, Mr McDermott."

Mr McDermott is so lovely. I have cried my eyes out in front of him and he was so nice and really listened. I had already had one operation on my torn meniscus with another surgeon at a different hospital but the operation was not performed well and my knee was still in a lot of pain for months afterwards. Eventually my physio told me to go to Mr McDermott. He was absolutely brilliant and identified the problem straight away. After the surgery my knee has been so much better and I am on the road to recovery! Everyone at London Sports has been so supportive and lovely. I would definitely go there again though I hope I won't have to!

The care I received was first rate in every department and thanks to Mr McDermott I returned to county cricket within seven weeks!

I'd fully recommend Mr Ian McDermott. He clearly explains the situation to his patients and lists the options available; being very clear about pros and cons of each.
