"Left & right cervical rib removals"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I have had rib resections on both sides. One in 2010 at KGH and the other in 2015 at NGH both performed by the same consultant. the consultant has done an amazing job which has been life changing. I was losing all strength in my arms, had terrible neck issues and couldn't hold my baby for any length of time! This has all been corrected and I feel amazing. I thank the consultant and their team for their amazing work and I will be eternally grateful for all of their hard work x
