"My knee replacements have been perfect"

About: Golden Jubilee National Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

My operation was carried out by Mr Deep and his outstanding team.

My two knees were operated on at the same time, albeit at first consultation the surgeon recommended one at a time. Since my operation which was 12 months ago I have had no problems what so ever. It's simply been an outstanding success.

I was back playing golf after five weeks (18 holes) and played four times a week ever since. It is my firm recommendation to have the two knees operated on at the same time, if required. I go to dancing classes once a week and go on long walks regularly. There is nothing I can't do, so my life is perfect.

I am 67 years of age and feel about 40years old. The ward nurses were also fantastic, and the hospital itself was great, This hospital should be a blueprint for all hospitals it's simply out of this world.
