"We will never be able to adequately thank you for helping to restore our daughter’s finger to its original beauty. It was simply amazing that you were able to sew together such a small digit. As professionals ourselves, we appreciate that one is not always thanked, even when the outcome is successful. We shall be eternally grateful to you for the operation you performed for our daughter."
"Dear Sonja, I just want to say a big thank you for everything you have done for me over the last few years. Having the pain taken away from my hands is marvellous. Hopefully I won’t need you again, but I know you will be making a massive difference to many others! Thank you."
"I am extremely happy with the results of my cosmetic surgery performed by Sonja Cerovac. The service I received was outstanding and I would HIGHLY recommend her. Sonja has great skills and takes pride in her work which filled me with confidence from the first time that we met. Sonja is very efficient, friendly and professional at all times."
"Dear Ms Cerovac, I am writing to thank you for all the care you have given me in operating on my skin cancer and in all the follow-ups. You are friendly and reassuring. The wound has healed beautifully. Thank you to Arabella for joggling all my appointments. I’m so glad that I didn’t wait for the NHS ! Thanking you again"
"Seen very promptly by Sonja Cerovac. After a fall I sustained a large cut on my nose. Wound was still open 6 days after being sustained. After initial consultation on morning of 8th May she fitted me in for corrective surgery the same day. Amazing. 12 days on the dressing and sutures removed by Sonja. To my amazement there is virtually no visible scar. Her work is incredible I couldn’t be happier. Best money I’ve spent in years. Thank you."
"You operated on my thumb earlier this year after I broke it playing rugby. I just wanted to write you a note to say THANK YOU for stitching me back up. This year, rightly, has been one to appreciate our NHS and the people who make it work – but I truly marvelled at the speed, care and expertise I received. Thanks for doing what you do."
Joint replacement surgery for thumb arthritis – practice modifications
Our department recently commenced a prospective audit on use of two component carpo-metacarpal prosthesis, in management of thumb basal joint arthrosis. Thumb osteoarthritis is a common condition and many patients are in need of surgical input in order to alleviate disability. Immediate and 6 months post surgery results presented below, are encouraging, but monitoring continues.
New modified rehabilitation regime for internally fixed metacarpal fractures
Metacarpal fractures account for 40% of all hand injuries and up to 44% of all hand fractures. While we are still collecting and processed data, preliminary results are suggesting that splint is neither needed, nor beneficial for patients who have undergone uncomplicated, rigid, internal fixation of metacarpal fractures.

In my practice, interposition arthroplasty using pyrocarbon implants still represents a useful and reliable treatment option in the surgical treatment of early thumb basal joint arthritis.
