"Total Knee Replacement"

About: St Albans City Hospital

Anything else?

I had TKR on 23rd feb 2013 i was cared and looked after in a excellent way.The theatre staff were lovely as i was so scared they reassured me i was going to be fine.Well after some persuasion i finally gave in and opted for TKR done with spinal rather then general.I must say im glad i opted for spinal as recovery was so much better.The ward staff were very kind to me also and the food was good the hospital was very clean i would recommend to anyone having surgery go to St Albans.
