"Corrective hand surgery"

About: St Richard's Hospital

Anything else?

I have recently finished treatment following an operation in Dec 2012 to realign the tendons of my right hand and to fuse the thumb joint. I opted for the brachial nerve block rather than a general anaesthetic an, as a result, was able to appreciate the number of staff and the work involved in carrying out this procedure. The treatment by the staff from the initial diagnosis through to the final X-ray has been exemplary. I can thoroughly recommend the care by this particular section of the Orthopaedics department.
