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.
