"Two knee replacements"

About: Pilgrim Hospital

Anything else?

Over the last two years I have had both my knees replaced due to arthritis. Both were total knee replacements & the operations were performed at the Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. All my pre operation appointments were on time. Every detail of the operations were explained to me clearly including the after care. Both operations were performed on the planned dates. All the nursing staff including my surgeon & his team were excellent. The ward staff that cared for me and aided my recovery after the operations could not have been better. Again post operation appointments were on time. I personally cannot speak highly enough of the treatment I received at the Pilgrim hospital including all it staff. Pleased to say I`m now fully recovered with no arthritic pain in my knees. Thanks to Pilgrim & its staff.

Dear Mr. Dewey - there is always a certain heightening of experience when patients tell us about repeat visits and that the care was so good each time; consistency of care standards is really important - we aim and we want to get it right every time!

The orthopaedic team will be really pleased to read this feedback; thank you so much for taking the time to tell us - and I am glad your recovery has been so good.
