"Revision Knee Surgery"

About: Ayr Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

After a knee replacement at Kilmarnock Crosshouse Hospital, I was admitted to Ayr University Hospital for revision surgery due to infection, under the care of Mr Dearing and all of his team. After two painful operations to rectify the earlier mistake, I am now pain free and forever grateful to Ayr Hospital staff and Mr Dearing himself for their great quality of care.

Dear Mary H,

I am so sorry your initial care was problematic but it is good news that you are now on the way to recovery under the care you received from Mr Dearing. I will pass this to the teams involved in your care to let them know your feelings. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your care.

I hope you are well recovered now.

best wishes,
