"Day Surgery in NE Surgery Centre"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I had shoulder surgery on 8 January 2015 as a day patient. The treatment I had was very efficient and caring, and I felt totally confident that I was being properly cared for. The nursing staff were reassuring, and the medical team were the best. My anaesthetist took good care of me, my surgeon painstakingly repaired a badly damaged rotator cuff, and I am well on the way to a good recovery with the help of the physiotherapists. I was worried that I may not have a good outcome before the procedure, but I am delighted with the progress I am making. I would like to express my gratitude for a job well done by caring, talented professionals. Thank you.
