"Recent arthroscopy of knee"

I am a 17 year old football scholar and I recently had knee arthroscopy in my right knee at fulwood hall after being misdiagnosed at my local hospital with a 'sprained' knee after 5 months,sick of being messed about, I was then sent to fulwood hall by my Physio to see a particular Consultant as my pyhsio deals with them regularly , within 28 days of seeing the Consultant I was in for surgery. my MRI scan was clear from my local hospital but they were still assuring me they felt I had done some damage due to my pain levels and my career they felt it was right to go through with arthroscopy, they suspected I had torn my medial meniscus due to my pain areas, and they could not of been any more accurate, in surgery they found a significant tear to my medial meniscus, they removed the tear and now I am back on the road to recovery, I could not recommend this Consultant and all of the team at fulwood hall enough! They all make you feel welcome and relieve any nerves you may have, you are treated as an individual and it really relieves any fears you may have, from the moment I entered the hospital I was made to feel welcome, I will always use fulwood from now on and I will continue to give good reviews everywhere possible as they deserve it 100%.
