I am an American in my 70s, who fell and ruptured a quadriceps tendon while walking on Skye. I was taken to Raigmore Hospital, where the tendon was surgically repaired. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the medical care that I received.
My surgery was done by Dr. Kent and my consulting doctor was James Beastall. Both of these individuals were extremely competent. I was especially impressed with the large amount of information provided by these doctors both before and after surgery. Upon returning to the US, my orthopedist told me that my recovery was progressing nicely.
The nurses and the remainder of the staff were knowledgeable, efficient and very friendly as they performed their duties. The patients in this orthopedic ward had a variety of specialized problems and it was impressive to see the staff dealing with these in a caring and professional manner.
