"Hand surgery"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital / Plastic surgery

I have just had the most fantastic experience both A&E and plastics.Having severed a nerve in my left hand I spent several hours on the first evening and was asked to return 2 days later for surgery.

Everyone who I came into contact with were nothing but excellent.in every aspect and before surgery I was given choices of sedation.The anaesthetist talked me through both procedures and I decided to have the block which gave me the option of seeing and talking to the surgeons throughout the op.It was an experience I would not have missed, so interesting and more importantly, it gave me the opportunity to see such dedication these people put into their work.Well done to all concerned right from entering to leaving Wythenshawe.I would just like to add I am 80!
