We created this page after we received a number of unprompted emails from patients with positive feed-back about their experience through our practice. We then realised that it is important for future patients to know those stories and be reassured about the interaction during consultations and about the possible impact of recommended treatment on their quality of life.

If you are a patient of ours please share your experience here:

NON-OPERATIVE TREATMENT
"Appropriate diagnosis and rehabilitation made a major difference"
I am 37 years old CEO and met Mr. Mihai Vioreanu after an 18 months of continuous knee pain following surgery that did not worked well and a wrong rehabilitation performed in a different clinic. Mr. Vioreanu was the fifth orthopaedic surgeon in Europe to evaluate me in 18 months and the only one who was able to determine right away the source of my knee pain.

FOREARM FRACTURE FIXATION
"Thorough gentleman allied to his professional competence"
When I recently broke my forearm in two places I was under considerable pain. I had however the good fortune to be introduced to Mr Vioreanu shortly thereafter who then performed surgery on my arm in SSC. I was immediately struck by his professionalism and the fact that the patient was the centre of his focus. Despite a delay on the day of surgery, he took time out of his theatre work to visit me, explain the cause of the delay and tell me when the operation would take place later on in the da

NON-OPERATIVE TREATMENT
Conservative treatment for meniscal tear better than surgery
I have torn meniscus in both knees from playing football. I found out about three years ago when after an MRI scan immediate surgery was recommended in a different clinic. I was a bit reluctant to have surgery and I started seeking alternative treatments. Mr Mihai Vioreanu was recommended. I had my appointment with Mr Mihai Vioreanu almost two years ago. During a very detailed and in depth consultation he explained to me the nature of my condition and that in my case light exercise and cycling

MENISCAL SURGERY
"A true professional with a feel for the game."
I damaged the medial ligament and tore my meniscus in the right knee while playing football. My local physiotherapist told me I was extremely lucky not to damage the ACL and that I should perhaps consider whether or not I wanted to continue playing my beloved sport. I spent the next 12 weeks working hard using physiotherapy exercises to rehabilitate the medial ligament while hoping that the meniscus would naturally heal too. Unfortunately it did not, so fearing the worst I visited Mr. Vioreanu f

MENISCAL TEAR SURGERY
"Very Professional and Excellent Job"
I twisted my knee in December 2015 and I thought I was going to walk it off. After 2 weeks I still felt as the knee was slipped out of position. I waited 1 month and went for MRI that showed a tear in my meniscus. As I have always been active, playing football, gym and running I suspected the tear might have been there for a while. After some research I found Mr Mihai by chance on the internet in relation to Sports Surgery Clinic in Dublin.

Exceptionally Professional Surgery & Follow-up
As a GP and a patient I can fully appreciate the quality of care I received having my ACL reconstruction done with Mr Vioreanu. I had a skiing accident and ruptured my ACL.
