"Sucessful hip surgery"

About: Wrightington Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I come from a very broad and successful sports background namely in the martial art disciplines of Judo and Olympic Freestyle Wrestling. During 2006, I began experiencing pain in my right hip. This then progressively worsened as the years went on. I currently live in Belfast and after being past from pillar to post for a number of years, exhausting all options including years of physiotherapy with no relief, I was finally sent to Wrightington hospital during 2015.

This was the best decision of my life as it was at Wrightington I met with Mr A Rajpura, a real God send in my eyes. Mr Rajpura spent a considerable length of time with me and explained why I was getting so much pain (this was after various other guestimates by other Belfast consultants). Mr A Rajpura then carried out hip surgery on my hip during October 2015. The care and attention which was provided to me at Wrightington was tremendous, absolutely exceptional. I would not fault any part of the process. I am now 2 months post op, I endured 9 years of pain, sleepless nights and daily doses of pain killers. This has all been put to an end.

Mr Rajpura is worth his weight in gold, I will always be eternally grateful for what he and the rest of his staff did for me. Thank you so much!
