"Ward 16"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

Anything else?

I had an operation on my Chronic Sciatica problem at the Neurosurgery dept of the RVI on the 22nd April 2013 and cannot thank all the staff enough for the first class treatment I received. When you go into Hospital there is a feeling of trepadation of what you are about to go through, but my Surgeon clearly explained the procedure and I felt totally at ease. I was only in Ward 16 for 2 days but the after care treatment following the operation was first class and the staff in the ward were so professional and diligent. I am now walking again without pain and cannot believe the difference the operation that they carried out has made to my life. It is difficult to put into words my gratitude to all of the hard working staff that I met on my brief stay in the RVI, but you've put a smile back on my face and my 4 dogs would also like to thank you, as they are loving the long walks that I'm managing to do again with them!
