"Spinal surgery due to Lumbar D4-D5 disc prolapses"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Anything else?

I came in on Monday 14th October 2013 to have some spinal surgery .The Op went well, and to quote the consultant everything is now ‘Tigity-boo’, and I can honestly say, my back hasn’t felt better for years. The level of care and dare I say it, ‘customer service’, I received from all the staff associated with D5, the surgical team and the consultant, in my opinion, couldn’t have been any better. All questions were answered straight away and in plain English, all staff were polite, friendly and good humored, and as an added bonus, a regular supply of tea was available…….always great for patient morale! What I will also mention, was the quality of the food…… I was highly impressed. Ok, it’s never going to be at 5* Michelin level, however, all that I had was hot, tasty, filling and nutritious, exactly what’s needed to start the healing process. Many thanks indeed to all involved.
