"Finally a diagnosis of my pain, and treatment."

About: St Michael's Hospital (Hayle)

I had been in unbearable pain for 15months with my doctor unable to find out what it was. After 1 appointment with a physiotherapist at west Cornwall hospital he recognised it was my hip. After diagnosis of my hip impingement I was referred here to an excellent group of surgeons, who have not only significantly reduced my pain, have gave me a full correct diagnosis of my hypermobility in my hips, which now I can have treatment to work with in my future and I no longer feel like a hypercondriact. The staff here were amazing, so polite and welcoming, nothing was to much trouble. The hospital was immaculate and clean. I was never left waiting when pressing my buzzer for help. Thank you every one at St Michaels hospital, and a mega big thank you to my surgeons.
