"Hip Replacement Surgery"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

My father had his hip replaced in November 2013, and received very good care whilst in Chorley Hospital. Although he ended up having to stay three weeks due to complications, these were nothing to do with the hip replacement itself which was excellent, and were more to do with the general complications that occur when an older person with other health issues undergoes surgery. My father has just had his 12 month x-ray and check up which was very thorough, and all is good with the hip. Our thanks to the consultant and all the staff at Orthopaedics. I would recommend Chorley Hospital for anyone requiring hip replacement surgery.
