"Post op knee surgery"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Anything else?

The consultant is the nicest consultant i have ever met always willing to tell you everything about your treatment, he replaced both of my knee joints, and even let me watch the operation on a tv screen after three days I was walking and asked him if i could go home, he said i was well enough an there was no reason to keep me in longer if i wanted to go home. My wound was bleeding after my op, and when he came to see me he put on a plastic apron and rubber glover got the nurse to bring him a sterile dressing kit removed the old dressing and re dressed it himself because he wanted to make sure himself every thing was fine, I could not fault the Consultant's care and attention to his patients, he is a credit to his profession.
