"Knee and hip replacement surgery"

About: Rotherham Hospital

At separate time recently I have undergone a total knee replacement and a hip replacement. I can not praise the staff and services at this hospital high enough. At all times I was kept fully informed and involved in the choices available for the surgery. All staff were courteous, professional, and competent. Communication by telephone and letter has been excellent. I was fully prepared by pre admissions for the surgery including meeting with the surgeon and anaesthetist. All of my questions were answered in full. Thank you Rotherham for an excellent job well done and for giving me a new lease of life.
