"Revision hip"

About: Wrightington Hospital

since having my first total hip replacement 35 years ago due to RTA I have also had a total knee replacement 7 years ago, I had my first hip revision 3 years ago I have seen Wrightington hospital strive to achieve very high leaves of medical services, I have been under Two of in my opinion the best hip surgeons avalible every thing is disscused there is no rushing into operations. I have had problems with my hip dislocating after my first revision surgery but this was not my surgeons fault as I have mentioned my hip , knee problems have all been due to the RTA accident This time I was on ward 6 mens ward I had 6 days bed rest to obviously give the surgery time to heal and work, the ward staff were fantastic nothing was to much trouble everything was carried out with a smile and a jolly up the ward was fantastically clean every time a patent left the bed chair,and cabinet had a very intense clean the food was good served with a smile I could not fault anything ward staff,cleaners,food attendants , nothing to much trouble well done Wrightington Hospital and all staff
