"Amazing Treatment ; Major Surgery & Aftercare"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

On 3rd September 2015 I was an emergency surgery patient for Aortic Dissection, with the odds stacked against me.

After several hours in theatre, I was cared for in Cardiac ICU/HDU for rest of the month, before being moved to the 'step down' ward, prior to discharge. I am very grateful for extremely dedicated care by the whole team in the Millennium Wing, who pulled out all the stops on my behalf.

My wife & family were supported too.
