Extract from her autobiography, “Unbelievable”. Bill Ribbans, a top Orthopaedic Surgeon, handled the process. He was caring and brilliant and got the time frame right – two long, hard, bitter months… there was a lot of travelling to and from Northampton to see him…
Rutherford… himself a patient of the County Clinic’s Bill Ribbans…. believes there is nowhere better to go for care…..not just from a sporting side, but if you come here to be checked out by these guys, you are getting checked out by the best…..a brilliant surgeon, Bill Ribbans and then everyone who is associated with the team – there are some very, very, very good practitioners who really will fix you… from my point of view I don’t have to go into London…

Patients – General
I wanted to thankyou again for your professionalism and wonderful care from start to finish of my treatment and surgery on my leg and foot.
Both, (Wayne Wymer http://www.actionphysiotherapy.co.uk/ & Prof Ribbans) just a short email to thank you for your help in diagnosing, operating and then supporting the recovery of my knee. It feels in good shape 6 months on and I have got back to all my previous activities which is great. I feel I have been well supported throughout by you both.
Thanks so much for sorting out my broken ankle which I did back in July this year. Here I am three months on and able to do pretty much what I could do before. From a very happy patient.
Your consultation really did have a hugely positive impact on us all and we feel very blessed to have had such care from you and Shirley Hancock.

After 7 months of struggling with a damaged ankle and being unable to walk normally I was finally directed to Prof. Ribbans. Apart from being welcomed brilliantly and treated sympathetically within no time Bill had discovered my problem by clever use of technology. Having agreed the surgery I needed to solve the problem it was into the Three Shires Hospital. Bill and the Anaesthetist (Prof John Hare) explained what they were going to do and a couple of hours later it was all over. The surgery was a complete success as was the recovery and within no time I was back on my feet walking naturally again with no more pain. I cannot thank Bill and his team enough, not just for the technical expertise that was delivered but the way I was treated throughout my experience. I would have no hesitation in returning to him for treatment and for recommending him to anyone else. A true professional!
As I have not seen you personally I wanted to take this opportunity to express my extreme thanks for your kindness, compassion and expertise in treating me so far. We have nothing but the highest regard for your clinic.
