Mr Waters takes a holistic approach to his practice and ensures he takes the time to explain things clearly in easy-to-understand terms and allows plenty of time for patients to ask questions and discuss concerns. This allows patients to make the best treatment decisions possible.

The little free time he has, is spent with his family, travelling, keeping fit, cooking, collecting & playing guitars.



If you have had a hip replacement under the care of Mr Waters since 2010 it is very unlikely you will have metal on metal hip.
