See below for some kind words from our patients.

Excellent service. All staff were polite friendly and informative on all visits. I was particularly impressed with the care I received before and after my operation. The nurses were great and it was nice to get visits from everyone involved in the operation too to explain what was done and how it had gone!

Craig T

I can’t recommend Prof Watts highly enough. He listened, explained and importantly, smiled! I felt that he was interested from the beginning and that I wasn’t just another ‘elbow’

Lorraine J

I couldn’t have asked for better service, care or treatment.

Nick H

Mike Walton is a great guy!

John R

Could not have wished for any better!! The service every time I have been has been second to none.

Len Funk is the most polite/professional person with a wealth of knowledge. Would not have asked anybody else to do my surgery!

Helen A

Excellent and prompt service. Recovery support is also excellent. You do really get what you pay for.

Daniel T

As an overseas resident I was very impressed with the service and people involved. I would fly in to the Wilmslow Hospital from Barbados in future if anything ever arises again!!

Nicholas K

Very happy that I was made aware of The Arm Clinic, which resulted in me obtaining excellent service and care

Neil S

Excellent service all round! Wouldn’t go anywhere else and would only recommend Mr Funk

Wallace B

Jade, Prof Watts’ PA, is brilliant- so professional and extremely efficient.

Carolyn K

I have been treated with utmost respect and patience by Professor Watts and his team. A special mention and thanks to Jade who has sorted every thing quickly for me.

The hospital have been fabulous fitting me in with several procedures in one day to save me travelling from Leeds several times.

Diane W

I live in Leeds and have suffered with a left shoulder pain for at least 18 months . I saw an article in The Mail on Sunday regarding the frozen shoulder problem which is what I was being treated for.

Prof. Funk immediately pointed out that it was an impingement problem an treated me accordingly all in one day. The relief was immediate and while I had to pay out of my own pocket it was worth it. I will not hesitate to recommend Prof. Funk and the Arm Clinic.

Michael N

I would just like to thank each and everyone of you. Every person I spoke to was really pleasant and made me feel comfortable. It makes a real difference when everyone is so nice.

I would definitely recommend any of my family and friends.

Julie F

A first class service from start to finish.

Peter S

Having seen Prof Funk a number of times I can safely say that the service each and every time is outstanding. From contacting Will who is very professional and always helpful in booking you in as soon as possible, through to the appointment and treatment from Prof Funk

Ben L

Everything went smoothly and am very pleased with the results. The service, skill and professionalism of everyone I met was first class. Professor Watts was brilliant and I will have no hesitation in recommending him and The Arm Clinic to anyone with relevant injuries or problems in the future.

Mark W

The care we have received throughout has been excellent. We couldn’t have asked for better from everyone we have met along the way.

Anna P

From the first appointment to the follow-up after my operation, everything was first class.

I would highly recommend The Arm Clinic to all my friends and family.

Peter M

Complete confidence in the whole team, everyone has been very helpful at every stage of my consultations, surgery and post surgery appointments.

Neil M

I received a very efficient & professional service. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.

Julia B

Efficient. Effective. Brilliant.

Thank you!

Paul G

Prof Funk was the first person to give me a correct diagnosis and immediate treatment. Having everything arranged for the one morning was extremely helpful. I couldn’t believe how quickly things were sorted out when I had waited for weeks in pain. Everything he told me was realistic and accurate.

The hydrodilatation procedure for my frozen shoulder was like a miracle for me. Within 3 days I could drive again and was back at work after being off for 11 weeks. It gave me enough reduced pain to be able to start physio stretches and I progressed so much more quickly.

Thanks for everything!

Anita I

It is very good to have such informed discussion about my condition and very prompt and efficient service. Waiting was kept to a minimum and feedback to my doctor, physio and me was clear, detailed and quickly provided.

Sue S

Puneet was superb throughout as was his secretarial service provided by Tom. The best I have received and I’ve had experienced a number of operational procedures!

John K

Mike was empathetic towards our son who injured his shoulder playing rugby and has guided him back through rehab to prepare for playing again inside a target of 5 months. Clear explanations were provided on the procedure undertaken, which was complex and invasive from a surgery perspective.

The experience of having Mike do the surgery and the professionalism/condition of the Wilmslow facility made us all feel we genuinely had the best medical support available.

Harry M

Whilst we have scored Professor Funk as 10 – Excellent, if eleven was an option we would have scored him as that. We really found him exceptionally good and cannot commend him highly enough!

Oliver N

If only all consultants and staff were as outstanding as those we met (particularly Mr Mike Walton), the UK medical services profession would be unrivalled anywhere in the world. Exemplary – thank you and well done!

Stephen P

Adam was amazing, he knew exactly what I needed from my appointments and I felt amazing after surgery. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better, he’s a real gentleman. Thanks for everything.

William McD

I found all the people I came into contact very helpful and welcoming. In particular the nurse who was in charge of my care on the day of my surgery. Dr Kulkarni was very reassuring and really good there were no problems at all with anaesthetic. Every time I called the office Jade was extremely helpful and dealt with things quickly. Professor Watts was as always the ultimate professional, reassuring, informative and one of the best surgeons I have had contact with. Finally it was reassuring to have Linda call to check the day after that things were OK and she was available for questions a few days later.

Kathleen T

I cannot praise the efficiency, friendliness and skill of everyone I came in contact with too much. I was in a lot of pain at 5.30pm (the time of my appointment) and by 7pm it was a memory and I have been pain free ever since. Many thanks

Gary H

I have seen both Prof Funk and Prof Watts over the last couple of year . Both have a wonderful bedside manner and I was treated with dignity at all times.

I would 100% recommend both consultants to anyone . It is indeed worth the three hour round trip from Leeds

Diane W

I was originally booked to go to Wrightington, as it is closer to my work, but was contacted to switch to 52 Alderley Rd.  This enabled all my treatment to be carried out in one visit.  Which included ultrasound scan, MRI scan and ultrasound guided cortisone injections as well as speaking to the consultant twice.

This is the best all round medical service that I have ever received

Mark T

Great that time was allowed for me to contact my insurance company so that treatment could be given at the time of the consultation. This prevented me having to make another 3 hour round trip!

John B

Extremely happy with all aspects from original diagnosis to operation and follow up. The information booklets provided were very useful and informative as was the Shoulderdoc website.

Graham B

Mr. Monga was an outstanding consultant and the entire experience from the initial consultation, through the operation and feedback to discharge was a fantastic and professional service.  I couldn’t recommend Mr. Monga more for his expertise, honesty and kindness throughout.

Christopher W

After years of pain in my shoulder, following treatments by Mr Monga I now feel that I have my life back – I can’t thank him enough for fixing me!

Kerry M

Absolutely outstanding service very kind and friendly all the staff could not ask for more my surgeon was outstanding and the anaesthetist was brilliant and made me laugh

David Mc

Prof Len Funk is the most amazing consultant I have had the pleasure to meet.
So professional, and the only one I have met who genuinely has his patients interests first .
I came from London on a recommendation and it was well worth the trip.

Ashley K

Mr. Monga could not have been nicer. He explained everything in detail so that I could understand what he was telling me. He has a lovely bedside manner which is very reassuring when you are to have surgery.

Helen M

From the very first time we contacted about my appointment everybody was so helpful and friendly. All the appointments, surgeries etc were dealt with very efficiently. It was great to get definitive answers and most of all a solution to my problem. Professor Funk’s secretary Will was extremely helpful and helped me with all my queries.
Professor Funk took the time to explain everything to me and answered all the questions I had for him at each appointment. It was great to be listened to.
Thanks again for all your help. Still continuing my rehab but have no pain which is great!

Grace C

The whole experience of how my injury was handled from start to finish was of the highest standard and I feel could not have been improved, even if the outcome had not been as good as it is. I am also extremely pleased with the result of the surgery and the aftercare provided.

Anthony H

The whole experience was relaxed and I was put at ease through the way staff conducted their selves on the whole very professional. Many thanks to all involved in my treatment.

John W

First class treatment by experts in their field. Friendly but professional. Hospital excellent. Very well organised.

Geoff L

I have never seen such care and attention to detail from a group of individuals as I have done in dealing with Mr Funk and his team.

Outstanding from start to finish.


Excellent service and appointments available when it was convenient for me.

Darren D

Very efficient service that exudes professionalism.

Dave L

Problem identified and treated very quickly.
Consultant Mike Walton was very thorough explaining the operation procedure and the rehabilitation program – Thank you very much.

Sean D

We honestly could not have asked for more.
The speed at which William sorted out the appointment and the thorough and truly excellent treatment from Professor Funk is amazing and we would have no hesitations in recommending to all.

Paul P

Very happy with all at The Arm Clinic / Wilmslow and with Adam Watts’ team

Tony F

I’ve had a fantastic outcome to my injury, far better than we could have hoped for. I owe this to Prof Funk and his team and would never hesitate to recommend him, which I have already done.

Gareth D

I couldn’t be happier, highly recommended!

Adam C

Mr Funk, Will and all the staff members in the team are very professional and also very helpful and accommodating with any of your individual needs and concerns.
I feel with the medical expertise you receive from Mr Funk and the excellent customer service you receive from Will and other members of the team the service provided was excellent. I would readily recommend this to all friends and family.


A great all round experience. The ability to diagnose/scan/interpret scan/prescribe/conduct procedure either one or two visits is fantastic

Ian G

The nursing staff were excellent provided a high level of confidence that they knew what they were doing. The Anesthesiologist was awesome I really came away thinking that Mike Walton had gathered together the rock stars of the industry to create the “”Shoulder Super Group”” who had come together to fix my shoulder – brilliant!

Andrew D

Len Funk is the best consultant I have seen I was treated with dignity at all times by every member of his team. He has taken time step by step to explain and correct the bad surgery I had in the first place. I wouldn’t hesitate to re omen him to anyone. He has corresponded with my Physio at every point

Diane W

Professor Funk dealt with my case, a complex one, in the best possible way. He truly is an outstanding doctor!

Giorgio T

Very satisfied with the treatment from Mr Monga, he has a lovely manner and is good at building rapport with patients. He is very reassuring and I would refer to him at any point in the future.


I felt my treatment from start to finish was exceptional.  I think the staff employed are the most caring considerate members of the nursing profession I have met in a long time.

Julie K

I was confident and extremely happy with the service and attention I received from the first consultation to the last follow up appointment. I would 100% recommend Len Funk to anyone requiring the same treatment I required.

Martin B

Excellent, really helped me to get back to sports quickly. Having the initial consultation and the mri on the same day really sped up the process. Very happy with the overall service provided.

Ashley H

Thanks to Mike Walton I can begin to live a fairly normal life for which I am very grateful.

Janet B

Jade Allen could not have been more helpful. Mr Walton was very professional, gave concise information and reassured a very worried Mum!


We could not be happier with the service! Thank you.

Susan Mc

I was delighted with the attention I received from Mr Monga

Mavis C

It was good to finally get answers. Everything was so efficient and all the staff were very kind. The minute I went in I was put at ease and Prof Funk answered all my questions and I knew exactly what was going on with all steps of my treatment. It was a completely different experience all for the positive from my last surgery in a different hospital. I felt involved in my care and all my worries/concerns were dealt with appropriately. The follow up calls were much appreciated to check in to see how I was.  Thank you so much for everything you have done to help me.

Grace C

I am extremely happy with my treatment and have nothing but praise for Mr Walton and his team.

James G

Adam Watts, in my opinion, is an excellent surgeon who performed my arm operation to perfection

Mark K

Professor Funk took great time to help me decide on which operation to have while I was playing football in Denmark. He liaised with my Danish surgeon on my injury history and was also helpful on my return to the UK in a follow up appointment.


I cannot thank Prof. Funk highly enough. I had been “”written off”” by another surgeon but Prof. Funk gave me back my life!

Marjorie S

I would recommend The Arm Clinic and Professor Funk in particular to anybody with arm/shoulder problems.  I had my appointment, investigation, diagnosis and treatment all in one afternoon and I am very happy with the results.  No-one could ask for more than that.

Barbara H

Treated in a professional manner by Professor Funk. He has looked after me before for another problem which he solved for me. He is pleasant and explains his examinations in a clear and concise manner. I feel confident when I am under his care

Beverley B

Prof Funk has treated me twice now and on both occasions the care has been excellent. I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who may be in need of help.

Russell H

Everything in one visit , couldn’t be better!

Paul D

Post-op support available is very good – I have not experienced this before!

Excellent service from everyone and excellent treatment from Mike Walton

Sarah L

I cannot thank Mike Walton enough for the treatment he has given me. It has been life changing.

Impeccable service & professionalism from top to bottom.

All staff at no 52 were professional, caring and very kind. Regular letters and phone calls re: appts, from Will, prof Funk’s PA were also appreciated.  I feel very fortunate to have had the expertise of prof Len Funk as my consultant.  The shoulder clinic website is excellent and really helped with the background to my frozen shoulder

Lisa W
