"Successful knee replacement"

About: Northern General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had my knee replacement at the Northern General Hospital, Huntsman 3, on 21st May 2009. The doctors and the anaesthetist spent extra time checking on my echo scan to make sure everything was ok. Everyone has given me first class treatment. The nurses were cheerful and came to help me as soon as possible when the buzzer was pressed. The only complaint I have is that you are awake early and that you don’t get a drink or breakfast for a couple of hours. This is the third time I’ve been in this ward for hip and knee replacement and I cannot speak too highly of the treatment and care I have had. The nurses were very efficient in arranging follow up treatment (physio and district nurse) and of course the surgeons for a successful operation. A big thank you.
