"Sandbourne Day Surgery perfection achieved!"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

On Thursday April 10, I attended the hospital for major knee surgery! I had ACL reconstruction and meniscus tear in same knee. I am a nervous patient and from start to finish I can not fault the Sandbourne Staff! From the student nurse who checked me in, the anaesthesiologist and her assistants, the surgeon, recovery staff and nurses as well as physio team I have all of them to thank! Everybody was just so kind and could not do enough for you. They made a scarey and painful experience a great one (well you know for major surgery). I am completely confident in saying that it could not have gone any better or smoother!
