"Bunion removal by consultant"

About: Bmi - Shirley Oaks Hospital

I am so pleased with the whole experience at Shirley oaks hospital I feel I have to share it with a review. It started with me turning up for my appointment which was actually the sat after. I asked if I could be seen by someone else so as not to have to return. They said I'd have to wait and the reception staff kindly asked and a consultant agreed to see me. My pre op assessment i was greeted by another kind person I had heart pulse and blood pressure monitors taken swabs for infections and in depth questionnaires making sure the best can be given. I have to share that all the staff in the hospital were amazing and I thank everyone that looked after me for their greater than required by them care I was given. The Consultant has done a fantastic job the before and after pictures of other people's operations I looked at on the internet were no where nearly as great as mine. Least painful than other people's reviews and I was out and about and not taking pain killers after just 4 days. The cosmetic look of both my feet are beautiful and natural looking and would recommend the surgeon to anyone having bunion removal. I had the right one two weeks ago and the left one done today. I went in at 7am and was home by 2.30pm. This is a truly a great surgeon and I'd like to thank them for changing my life and doing such a fantastic job.
