"Knee Replacement - Excellent hospitality "

About: Kingsbridge Hospital Tamar Referral & Appointments Centre

(as the patient),

November 2012 I was aware of my right knee joint which was becoming more painful and my mobility deteriorating, walking with a bad limp.

I visit my doctor in December 2012 who sent me for an X Ray in South Hams Hospital. Saw my GP the next week for results, she told me that she would refer me to orthopaedic surgeon at South Hams, whom I saw in late January this year. Saw him again, in February 2013 and he offered total knee joint replacement in mid February, 11 days ago. The hospitality was excellent - fantastic teamwork at all stages.
