"Surgery for total hip replacement"

About: Orthopaedics & Spine Specialist Hospital Site

After almost 2 years of constant hip pain, I was refered to The Orthopaedics and Spine Specialist Hospital, from the first appointment through to the actual day of the operation, the surgeon and his team could not have done anymore to explain how the operation would progress and how re-couperation would progress. My main fear is needles, not the operation itself, and the anesthetist was patient and explained that he would put a line in my elbow, until I was asleep. I woke after the operation, tucked up in bed, the nursing staff were so attentive, professional and made sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Overall the care was second to none. A thank you also to the Chef. Thank you so much for giving me my mobility back.
