Charles Geoghegan, Director

“It was 2014 when we welcomed our first guests to The Clavadel in Guildford. I had long been aware of the lack of high-quality rehabilitation facilities on offer in the UK. But it was during a trip to Holland and Germany – where I witnessed the power of aquatic therapy in post-operative recovery first-hand – that I realised I had to make its incredible restorative properties more widely available to the general public.

“As a result, The Clavadel’s dedicated physiotherapy suite offers a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool that includes an underwater treadmill – previously only accessible to elite athletes – alongside a cutting-edge gym and innovative outdoor physio space.

“While often compared to a hotel or country club, you may be assured our purpose-built treatment centre offers the very highest standards of care – the kind you would expect from a superior traditional clinic.

“To date, we are proud to have helped thousands of people; therefore, should you find yourself in need of our services, we would be delighted to invite you to experience the unique environment we have created here at The Clavadel, and to assist you every step of the way along the road to recuperation.”

Having a hip replacement or any major operation isn’t just about the surgery, it’s about the recovery.  I had two hips replaced at once which made me particularly immobile and dependent on the incredible care, attention and rehabilitation I received during my three weeks recovery at The Clavadel.

Choosing how and where I recovered was as important as choosing my surgeon and hospital.

My Mother’s hip replacement came about as a result of an  accident.  So having her operation wasn’t a choice.  How she recovered was a choice and one that I would recommend anyone in a similar position to consider.

Even the website didn’t prepare me for the amazement and wonder I felt arriving at The Clavadel – I thought it was a dream!

The facility is fantastic and every day of my stay I thought ‘how lucky I am to be here’. You have a wonderful model for recovery.
