"Bunion removal operation"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

I had by bunion removal operation in November 2013. The surgeon explained to me thoroughly what the operation would involve and was very pleasant and easy to talk to. Once my operation was completed by after care was second to none and I was checked to make sure everything was ok until I am now back with 2 feet in a shoe. The only comment I would make is that the staff in the Orthapedic department did a very good job as it seems that there is a shortage a staff and they work extremly hard. My thanks to the surgeon for a wonderful job and my lovely new foot and all the staff involved.
