I visited the treatment centre to have cortisone injection into my arthritic knee, having decided to try this route first before surgery. My first reaction was how clean everything was, and the staff were all very friendly and put me at ease. Although not having surgery, I was still apprehensive as apart from having my children, I have never been in hospital, and my husband's experience of these injections several years ago ( at a different location), was very different, as he had suffered immense pain. I had my procedure explained very thoroughly by my lovely consultant, and all the theatre staff we extremely friendly and I relaxed straight away. Apart from the slight sting of the anaesthetic,
I did not feel a thing! The wonderful news is that I have not had to take any pain relief at all since the procedure as I have no pain! and I am able to walk so much better because of this. I cannot praise this treatment centre enough, and if surgery is required at a later date, this will be my number one choice. Many thanks to all concerned.
