"Minor orthopaedic operation"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Anything else?

I recently spent the day in the orthopaedic wing including a minor operation on my right wrist, I underwent a block anaesthetic to remove a ganglion from my wrist. I would like to personally thank the nurses, anaesthetists and surgical staff for looking after me so well, at no time did I feel stressed or unnoticed, your teams are professional, courteous, calming, informative and engaging. Thank you.
