"Joint replacement in fingers"

About: Hexham General Hospital

Anything else?

Over the last 4 years I have had to have 3 operations to my right hand carried out by my Consultant and his team, plus a exploratory knee op by another doctor. The complete process from referral, operation, to after care and follow up was excellent. I would definitely recommend the Orthopaedic department and the day unit at Hexham if you want first class care.
