"Total hip replacement"

About: The Great Western Hospital

Anything else?

I had a right total hip replacement in February 2013. I was very apprehensive but was put at ease by all the staff,especially those who prepared me for theatre. The anaesthetist was very good at making me laugh. Most of all my thanks go to the surgeon who did such a great job. Thanks to him I now have my life back!! The staff of Aldbourne Ward were excellent-very caring & nothing was too much trouble. I also found the food to be adequate and of good quality.
