"great orthopedic centre"

About: Trafford General Hospital

I had to have both hands operated on for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I was seen for my first consultation, the following week I had electro conductivity tests, two weeks later I had my right hand operated on and six weeks later I had my left hand operated on, with the last stitches removed on Christmas Eve. From the receptionist to the nurses, theatre staff and surgeons they were all bar none friendly, caring and respectful. The orthopedic centre at Trafford is clean with plenty of comfortable chairs, the car park is 20ft from the door, the ward was clean and warm and the post op buscuits were nice. Thank you Trafford for a pleasant experience at a time you need it, they may have been run of the mill ops but I was made to feel as important as the guy in the next bed having his hip replaced after my twenty minute operation!
