"Excellent consultant."

About: York Hospital

Since breaking my arm very badly in September 2012 , I have seen the consultant many times. After a 2nd operation to put a bone graft in my arm I am now fully healed and the arm is as good as new. I have a great range of movement and as a violinist this is particularly important to me.I cannot praise my consultant enough: their skill as a surgeon has made a huge difference to my recovery and their understanding of my specific needs made all the difference to me. Although the consultant is obviously a very talented practioner, it was their friendliness, openness and good humour which kept me positive throughout the whole episode.
