"Couldn't Be Better!"

About: Leighton Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

I was a day case patient, undergoing an arthroscopy which involved a general anaesthetic.

Everything went like clockwork, from the decision to have the procedure through to discharge - and the subsequent follow-up with the surgeon.

Staff were good-humoured and pleasant, happy to explain what was going on. I was admitted at noon and on my way home by 5 p.m. The pre-op was informative and thorough.

It could not have gone better, and I am very grateful to all concerned.
