"my hip replacement"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I am aged 68 and I had severe pain in my hip. I met Mr Jamil at Tameside Hospital who is a consultant. He was the most courteous and approachable doctor I have ever met. I was soon admitted for Hip replacement surgery and put at ease. he and his team asked me all about my other ailments, bad back, spondylosis, shoulder pain and arthritis and assured me they would put supports and padding under these pressure points to help so my pain following surgery would not be worse. After surgery Mr Jamil was at my bedside ensuring my wound was looked after. My aftercare and pain management was excellent and the scar healed beautifully. I have nothing but praise for my whole procedure.
