"Treatment at barlborough"

About: Barlborough NHS Treatment Centre / Orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had been suffering with back and leg pain for over a year and after not finding much help with my doctor I eventually got sent for a mri scan after a chiropractor wrote to my doctor, once in this system the ball really got rolling and was sent to balborough treatment centre.

my first visit was pre op checks and even then I knew I was in good hands from the moment I walked in everything was on time and ran smoothly the risks were pointed out to me and I had a good idea of the procedure I was going through, the only down side at this point was my date for the operation it was nearly 2 months away I was in severe pain and unable to work so financially as well as my health this was going to be a big problem, I explained this to the lady on reception who then put me on a cancellation list.

the op got brought forward by a month ......

the day and night a stayed at balborough was great all the staff were fantastic, like everyone ive heard a number of nhs horror stories but I can only report on the treatment I received which was first class, I cant praise the place highly enough from the ladies who cleaned the ward, the food, the surgeon visit and aneithiatist all were 100% proffesional and made a hospital stay a pleasant experiance.

ive just returned for a consultation 6 weeks on im now running swimming and feel great yes ive still a little pain mainly in the morning if ive rolled on my side in my sleep the surgeon has told me im about 80% into my recovery which is great news and once again he seemed to have the human touch and seemed genuinly pleased to hear about my recovery.
