"Very Sucessful Operation to my Shoulder"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I would like to say a big thank you to the doctor and all the Team working with him for the excellent surgery that was done by them to repair my right shoulder . The treatment I received from my first consultation, though the Elective Care Centre and then my operation was first class. Everybody I dealt with I found to be very helpful and friendly. Having had pain in my shoulder and down my arm for about 3 years I was pleased to have this attended to. The work that the doctor did was excellent, using micro surgery he had to make 6 incisions into my should under general anaesthetic. After recovery and an overnight stay, I no longer have any more pain. I'm now 6 weeks post op, and its very difficult to see were the wounds were, so neat Thank you so much, from a very grateful patient .
