"First Class Service"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I attended BVH and had a consultation during early December 2015. I was told I had a meniscus tear and what h would be done to treat it. Key hole surgery and waiting would be about 4 months. I had my surgery on 29/2/16 by General aesthetic and from start to finish as a day case, the treatment has been very good. I had my stitches out at my local surgery yesterday and they described it as being a very neat scar. Very good service and back to work on Monday!!
