I am a high volume hip and knee replacement surgeon, performing about 500 hips and knees a year. I have previously worked at Southport and Ormskirk DGH from 2007 to 2017 and was the Clinical Director for the last three years. I now work full time in the private sector seeing NHS (choose and book patients) and private patients. My time is split between three hospitals in the Ramsay group. I can be seen at Renacres Hall Hospital (Ormskirk and Southport), Fulwood Hall Hospital (Preston) and Euxton Hall Hospital (Chorley).
Mr Cope listens and post op if you have concerns you can contact the hospital for advice / help And you get his feedback via the staff on the ward which I found very reassuring . I made swift progress with my operated leg after a very efficient operation with no post operative infection . Excellent care there. You get to see Mr Cope and the anaesthetist before and after the operation and everything gets explained just before your operation which I appreciated as it can be a lonely experience !
I had a total hip replacement on 17th April 2018 and 6 months on I can only use superlatives to describe this. Mr Cope explains everything clearly, and I was very happy to have him do my op. My recovery has been excellent and because I kept as active as I could right up to having the new hip I found that I returned to normal very quickly. As soon as I started walking the following morning I could tell that I had more movement in the hip, ease of movement and best of all no pain! I am sleeping better, can walk around and exercise normally and have got my life back! The staff at Fulwood Hall were all lovely and very supportive. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Cope and would certainly come back if I need the other one doing.
At my appointment with Mr Cope, under NHS choose and book, at Renacres Hospital, he showed me my x-ray and explained in detail what I was seeing regarding my hip. He explained all the pros and cons of choosing to go ahead at this time with a complete hip replacement and I made the decision to do just that. He then went through all the paperwork carefully and clearly. On my admission I was first on the list and he came to see me shortly after I arrived, and I also saw him in anaesthetics. My operation went very well and I seemed to be back in my room in no time. He visited later than morning and twice more whilst I was there. I have been back for my 6 week check and again, very happy with him and the way I have recovered so well and quickly and the quality of life I have already got back. He has a very good team. I am very grateful to them all.
