"Thank you for my knee replacement"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted to Rotherham District Hospital last month for a full knee replacement.

My surgeon was Mr Rocha. I had my op at 2pm that day, with a spinal anasthetic. What was brilliant was I had no sickness, could have a drink straight away. Allowed home thursday dinnertime, walking fine, didn't need both crutches after only a week, no pain.

Staff on ward B2 and the physios were absolutely fantastic and not to forget the main person, Mr Rocha and team, for doing such a great job thank you all very much.
