"Excellent care under the orthopaedic team"

About: Crosshouse Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

My experience for both my knee replacements was positive with both Mr Symes' orthopaedic team, where I was treated with compassion and respect, and the follow up care, firstly in ward 2b, in September '15, and ward 2c in January '16 was equally as caring. The nurses were kind and considerate and cleaning and tea staff were also very courteous. Thank you all for the kind support when I needed it. Excellent run department. , where everything was explained and Mr Syme visited often, which was reassuring.
