"Hip replacement"

About: Freeman Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

I recently had a hip replacement and wish to thank the consultant and their operating team, nurses, physios and support staff (including ward 19 attendant who lifted everyone's spirits) for their excellent care and attention during my stay. Everything is done to support patients and maintain modesty and dignity. I was able to leave hospital confident in the knowledge that I had been provided with all relevant support and information to ensure that I would cope on my own at home. I have no doubt that I will require further hip replacement soon and hope that will take place at the Freeman!
