October 2020, received by Spire Hospital feedback for Mr Irwin:

“Mr Irwin is an excellent surgeon who shows kindness and compassion.  He has helped my husband also on at least two operations, and now myself.  Would not want to go to anyone else..”.

“Very helpful and understanding at all stages of the process”.


“My sincerest gratitude and thanks to Mr Andrew Irwin for the successful surgery which he carried out on my wrist in August last year.   I am now completely pain-free after years of suffering and I am able to play my instruments and teach painlessly.   You were the first consultant to diagnose my problem correctly and rectify it.   I would also like to thank the physiotherapist who aided in my recovery.”

Philip S., February 2019

“Mr Irwin signed me off as his patient yesterday after operating to repair a torn rotator cuff muscle.  I would like to thank Mr Irwin for the sterling job he performed on me. My op was three months ago and already I feel a great benefit from the surgery…  I am also delightfully astounded how small the wounds are.   Mr Irwin was very approachable and listened to all of my concerns answering any issues with knowledge and confidence.    I’m very grateful…  and can now continue my passion of playing golf. I would certainly recommend Mr Irwin to anyone who requires similar surgery.”

”very caring, attentive and professional stop felt safe and secure at all times and was under no doubt he’d deliver what he said”.

Katy T, January 2019.

”Well, I just want to let you know how my progress is going.  You said that I’d hopefully be playing golf again by mid April.   In fact I played nine holes last Saturday and 18 yesterday.  Both my physio and Pilates teacher or amazed at the rate of progression and both say it has to be down to having such a good surgeon.   …So once again thank you for doing such a great job on my shoulder.”

Catherine W, April 2018

” I was extremely grateful for Mr Irwin’s advice and comfort for indeed I was in excruciating pain.   Thanks to the ‘magic powder’  Mr Irwin must have sprinkled (and a little help from the Voltarol)  I made an amazing recovery the following morning with no pain and able to move and walk!  Apart from the suggested physiotherapy I think you can regard this case as closed.

“Hi Andrew, lovely Mrs A. rang today with a progress report.  She is progressing very well, reckons she is 99.9% better from pain… she would like to be discharged now and said to thank you very much and that it was well worth having”.

Patient Mrs A. telephoning my secretary, Jan 2018.

” I would like to thank Mr Irwin… call correctly diagnosing …  the failure of a Furlong left hip prosthesis from an x-ray image…  his observation was even more commendable and remarkable considering the consultation in his clinic was concerned with a cuff tear in my shoulder and not for my hip”.

Don L, Jan 2018.

” I thought I would write …  to thank Andrew for the attention to my joints over the past few years.   I am very pleased to say, and I hope I’m not tempting Providence here, that both my shoulders my hips and elbow have never felt better with no aches or pains and I’m feeling in great condition overall. .. my golf is also improving…”.
