At the end of October, following examination by my own doctor I was sent to the Podiatric Clinic at Carlton. It was determined that I would need surgery to correct a big toe problem, caused through repeated trauma (damaged joint through football/work injuries etc). The condition, known as Hallux Rigidus, was to be treated, through surgery, using a fusion method, which would secure the arthritic joint, put the toe back in position and ease the pain when walking.
I have had the operation and am now recovering, under the care of the Podiatric unit. From start to finish, Mr Hogg and his team have been fantastic. Surgery/operations are not something to enjoy, but through the professional approach of the clinic staff, I was able to feel like someone special. Everything was carefully explained to me, before and during surgery, allaying all of my fears. The Park House building is modern, spotless and has an excellent atmosphere. I cannot speak too highly about the whole experience.
