"Total knee replacement"

About: Leighton Hospital

Anything else?

Over the past two years I have suffered considerable pain and had gradually become crippled by a knee problem. In 2013 I was admitted to Ward 9 – Orthopaedics Elective for a total knee replacement in my right leg. The operation was performed, and now I am able to walk again. I am very grateful to the many people at Leighton Hospital who have helped me with their wonderful and cheerful expertise.
