"Thanks for my spine surgery"

About: County Hospital Louth / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

The timescale from start to finish was fantastic.

I had leg pain, swelling, tingling and numbness in varying degrees but making it increasingly hard to walk.

I was referred to Mr Abhinay Kamat who sent me for an MRI scan. He phoned me at work to give me the results. When he found out i was a teacher he tried to get the operation in the summer holidays which was only weeks away.

He performed the op in August & as soon as i woke up the swelling and all pain had gone from the leg.

The Barlborough hospital care was outstanding. The only downside was Chesterfield is 2 hours away! I am now ready to resume work walking better than i have for years. Thanks to everyone involved.

Dear "Apple" ,

I wish to thank you on behalf of my team at One Health and Barlborough hospital for taking the time to leave your kind comments. I will pass on this feedback to the relevant teams involved.

We are constantly striving to bring high quality spinal service to the patient closer to their home and will try to improve our local provision in the future following your feedback.

Many thanks and best wishes,
