"The pain clinic - Maple suite"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

Anything else?

I came to the maple suite on 2nd December for an epidural due to having a prolasped disc. This is my second visit and both times I was treated with care and professionally by all staff. I had been told by friends from experience of the same treatment that the proceedure is very painful. I couldn't say it was painful, more like a pressure feeling and that way the doctor new the injection was in the right area. I would not hesitate, if required to have the same treatment again and it has reduced the pain in my hip area and down my right leg. I have no complaint of the hospital, only praise for the wonderful service I received on both visits.
