From my first appointment last December To my post op appointment today Mr Magra has been amazing .He did an excellent hip replacement and I've had no pain since and my scar will eventually be almost invisible. I am progressing well with walking etc .He explains and listens so giving you confidence and never in a rush. His post op care was superb .I would definitely recommend him and his superb services.

I was suffering a lot of debilitating pain before I had a total hip replacement. The pain was gone after the operation and now, after ten weeks I am comfortable to walk for long periods and have resumed many activities, including cycling.Mr Magra has from my initial consultation and all stages onwards been a excellent communicator and the confidence he has given me and caring personality has made this procedure a very positive experience for me .LAURENCE DAVNALL

I am (as of today) 7 weeks and 6 days post op, for a complicated left hip replacement. Essentially I had no socket for my left hip. Mr Magra virtually reconstructed my whole upper leg. The chronic pain beforehand meant I was unable to walk much more than 100m without intense pain. Post op I have completed in excess of 2 miles with 2 crutches and 1 mile with a single crutch and I am now starting tingling confidence to lose the crutches altogether.I am 50yrs old this year so my hip will probably not last my entire lifetime but I would not be comfortable with anyone else performing any further operations on my hip.I honestly cannot tell you how much of a difference Mr Magra and his team have made to my life.

I found Mr Magra to be very personable and approachable and his professionalism right from the start reassured me that my hip replacement would be a huge success. On the day of the operation he visited me to explain, again, the steps involved in the procedure. Both he and the Spire team did everything to keep me informed and reassured as much as possible. From the short Post-op recovery the pain caused by my arthritic hip was gone and now, some 10 weeks later, my home life feels like it is back on track and am enjoying the huge improvement the hip replacement has made in my day to day activities from simple dog walks to enjoying forest trail walking. Mr Magra has succeeded in making me feel like the old me.

Lancaster is fortunate to have this talented and caring surgeon whose skills extend beyond the operating theatre. His ability to communicate and guide, with warmth and compassion, is strikingly clear from the moment you meet him. This holistic approach can be truly life changing … thank you so much Mr Magra for changing mine for the better …

I was in considerable pain before my knee replacement and only able to walk short distances using a walking aid. 2 weeks after my total knee replacement I was able to walk unaided and now after 6 weeks I am walking further than I have walked in over a year. It has given me a new lease of life. Mr Magra and his team have given an exceptional level of care and I am so grateful.

I cannot praise the skill,kindness and care of Mr Magra. It is almost two weeks after my hip replacement. An amazing success. I feel so happy and pain free now. I can walk upright albeit with a crutch at the moment. That is something I have been unable to do for a very long time. He explains everything so very well and is very patient if you have questions. I would definitely recommend this wonderful man. He is my hero.

I cannot recommend Mr Magra highly enough. My full hip replacement has been a brilliant success and I have been left with a very neat scar.He is very approachable, explains everything about the surgery, and makes you feel at ease.I felt very safe with him as I was very nervous about having surgery. After seeing him again recently for my other hip to be replaced I am much more confident.A very skilled ,caring professional who I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Patient at Royal Lancaster Infirmary

Mr Magra was very thorough and informative regarding his diagnosis and plan. A full hip replacement was decided upon due to my general physical fitness. At the follow up appointment a couple of months later, he was very pleasant and his examination and advice was very thorough and I left the appointment very satisfied.

Patient at Royal Lancaster Infirmary

Explained from X-ray need to new knee clearly; came to check ok after operation (grateful elective operation went ahead on due date given COVID); 6 weeks on good result, as shown on before and after X-rays by Mr M; healing well and can walk ok – so far, very happy recovery progress. 3 physio sessions so far helpful.

Patient at Westmorland General Hospital

I had a total hip replacement in late March and am delighted with the result. Mr Magra was extremely kind and explained the procedure fully, and following my review today I feel totally confident going forward.
