"To my husband's surgeon....Thank you."

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

My husband has sufferered years of pain and since having his second knee replacement 8yrs ago was never pain free or able to walk any distance at all. At 67 yrs I felt he had almost been written off and condemned to his painful existence. Enter a positive thinking, brilliant surgeon. He strongly believed he could give my husband a better quality of life by doing a 3rd replacement. He managed to convince others at the hospital that Peter was worth it. ( my husband has other unrelated health conditions) The operation was a long and difficult one, but also a very successful one. The surgeon achieved something we had only dreamt of, a life without pain. I wish to thank this surgeon for his skill, knowledge, patience, care and above all his dedication and utmost commitment to both the hospital and his grateful patients. My husband and I are truly indebted to this Dr..... he changed our lives. Thank you.
