"Total hip replacement"

About: Chapel Allerton Hospital

Had my THR in October 2014 and i was absolutely petrified to say the least and worried about the whole procedure. All i can say is i worried for nothing. The appointments i had were always on time, no waiting around for ages. Everyone is so friendly. The hospital is absolutely spotless the nursing staff are a true credit to the hospital. Nothing was too much for them. My surgeon and their associate are absolute diamonds. I was in hospital for 2 nights. I never had any problems and nine months on i have forgotten i ever had a hip replacement. I was in so much pain for 3 whole years before my operation and as soon as it was over that pain had gone. My life is back to normal and i cant thank Chapel Allerton enough. The whole process was a great experience. I will need my other hip doing at some point and Chapel Allerton is the only place i will go. I have recommended this hospital to a few of my friends who are having hip or knee problems. Thank you so much to everyone who looked after me.
