Dr. English repaired my left rotator cuff 7 years ago, and I’ve just scheduled the repair of my right one with him. Several of my friends & acquaintances have had similar surgeries, and I have better range of motion in my repaired shoulder than any of them. I feel so fortunate to have Dr. English available for this next surgery. He’s honest, straightforward, kind and respectful, and I trust him completely.

Dr. Christopher English is truly second-to-none and amazing. Dr. English replaced my left hip on August 28, 2018. I was in severe pain due to the arthritic hip that was evidently contributing to sciatica pain in my left leg. Dr. English determined that my left leg was slightly shorter than my right leg, and during my hip replacement surgery he lengthened it so that both legs are the same length! I feel fantastic now! You can trust Dr. English and you will really like him. His staff is super too.

I am the wife of a patient Dr. English has helped in a way that has so greatly improved my husband's quality of life, meaning no pain and wonderful improvement in his walking. What I appreciate is the way that Dr. English was so kind to me and our daughter, and he explained what he was planning and then he explained what he had done surgically. He fully explained the after care procedures. He is a real gem and I sincerely hope he is well grounded in Georgetown, because we are blessed.

Dr. English repaired my torn meniscus tear with surgery. He took time to explain and do the necessary labs prior. The surgery was a success!!! I can't believe how I'm pain free now for four years! I have totally confidence in him !

I have been fortunate enough to have Dr. English replace both my left knee and my right hip. The results were amazing and the job expertly done throughout from diagnosis to physical therapy after these two events. I number among the many thousands who say, post-surgery, "I should have done this years ago". I recommend Dr. English without reservation to anyone who is contemplating knee or hip surgery.

I've been seeing Dr. English for a couple of years. He is a great physician with excellent manner. He is thorough in his explanation of diagnosis, treatment options and when answering related questions. He always provide me with the amount of time I need for him to explain and/or address concerns. Quite honestly, I find his level of expertise and care to be rare these days. I've never experienced him walking in typing on his laptop or him not paying attention while he addresses my issues.
