"Total Hip Replacement - Brilliant Hospital"

About: Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

My husband had a total hip replacement in August having for many years been terrified of surgery.

Now after the superb care, support and the outstanding skill of the surgeon he wishes he'd had it done years ago.

We can't thank you enough.

From start to finish everyone was fantastic and made my husband feel at ease.

Our first impression was how clean the hospital was and how friendly the staff.

The outpatients appointments were timely with only one occasion where we were slightly delayed but no hardship.

All good things come to those who wait.

The surgeon will always be held in our highest regard and his team were amazing together with the aftercare received by the nurses in Ward 12 (he also said the food was fantastic!) and finally the ROCS support was all second to none.

My husband is now looking forward to a bright future thanks to the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.

Thank you all.

Thank you for sharing such a lovely story. I'm delighted that your husband got on so well here with us and I'm pleased to hear he is recovering well. I will pass your words onto Ward 11 and ROCS. With thanks and best wishes. Sally Xerri-Brooks

Just a quick clarification, I did of course mean Ward 12, rather than Ward 11. Please be assured your thoughts reached the correct place.
