"Total Hip Replacement"

About: Mount Vernon Hospital

The treatment I have had, from the day I entered Hospital and saw the Anaesthetist before the Operation who put my mind at ease, the Surgeon and his team done a wounderful job. I had the Spinal Anaesthetic with sedation and the next thing I remember was coming to in the recovery ward. A Nurse was on hand to look after me till it was time for me to return to Trinity Ward. The Nurses and helpers, you could not find better they were always cheerful and helpful. Also the doctors on the ward. I was allowed home after a week, four weeks later I returned to the Hip class for physiotherarapy, the physios are very good. I would like say a big thank you to all of you.
