Nezar Tumia

"My goal is to help each of my patients to return to an active, pain-free lifestyle.  I combine the latest techniques with well proven methods to provide patients with the best orthopaedic care possible."

 

 

 

73-year-old lady, total knee replacement: "Thank you for the exceptional service and care I received during my operation. My knee is completely pain-free and my walking is back to normal. Thank you so much for getting me my life back."

65-year-old gentleman: "I am delighted with the results of my hip replacement. If I had won the lottery and gone to a private clinic in Switzerland I could not have had better treatment from everyone I have met."
