"Neurosurgeon and his Team"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

I had a major operation on 19th June 2013, Which came as a surprise to myself, my husband and family. The consultant and his team have kept a very worried lady and her husband calm, informed and very well looked after. My operation meant that if it had been left undetected I could now be in a wheelchair and reliant on others daily. I have a cage and a plate in my neck, but to everyone's surprise I can do all that I did before, I have no lack of movement, swallowing or pain. I cannot thank the whole staff team for the clear explanations of the problem, the operation and the after care. I am a very lucky lady to have had such an amazing team of people. Please pass on my deepest thanks to all of those who have been involved.
