About: South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre

I was extremely anxious about having this operation but I knew it had to be done, I had read and heard all the horror stories!! Well, I can honestly say it was no where near as bad as I was expecting. I have had very little pain, more of an ache, but certainly bearable , the EOC staff were excellent, helpful, friendly, and made the stay all the more bearable. I am now into week three, I can walk around the house with no sticks, if I go out I use one, just incase.

So thank you very much EOC, and especially the doctor who performed the operation, the other knee needs doing shortly, at least I now know what to expect. Once again, thank you.
