"Major Surgery by the Orthopaedic Dept."

About: North Devon District Hospital

I have had 3 main operations at North Devon District Hospital. the orthopaedic team are absolutely professional and truly supportive in a most courteous manner. The warmth felt at such a traumatic time as major surgery, was inspired by the staff. I must applaud the whole Tarka Ward orthopaedic team. I have been fitted me with a whole knee joint, a left-shoulder joint and finally a left sided hip replacement 4 days ago. I am now up and walking. The reason i write this affirmation is because the orthopaedic staff at North Devon District Hospital have been the best in their work and their professionalism. Just to add i have an above knee right leg amputation without their work and efforts i wouldn't be here walking today. Thank you Tarka Ward.
