"Happy with my knee replacement op"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a total knee replacement in 2005.

The surgery went well but I had DVT and because the warfarin levels fluctuated so much I was in for 28 days.

In total my care in that time was excellent from all members of staff including physios and occupational therapists.

Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed.
