"Total knee replacement Ward 3"

About: Hexham General Hospital

I had a total knee replacement on 19.9.15 Due to unforeseen circumstances the op took place later in the day than planned. My husband was allowed to stay with me until I went to theatre

I was kept informed throughout. The theatre staff and all my post op care was first class. Staff came immediately if I pulled the call cord. They reassured me if I had any concered. They provided pain relief as necessary. I couldn't fault any part of my care. The ward is more like a hotel than a hospital. Excellent throughout.

Response from Hexham General Hospital

Dear Jennifer,

Your review makes me feel very proud of the ward 3 team at Hexham and the excellent orthopaedic care that they offer - thank you ! Delighted to hear that the op went well and that you got all the care you needed delivered in just the right way.

Thanks for taking the time to share this, it really does mean the world to our staff. Hope the exercises are going ok and that pain is manageable.

with all best wishes for a swift recovery, Annie
