I had a total right hip replacement with Mr Lusty 6 weeks ago on the 3rd April and it has had an almost miraculous effect on my life! Before the operation I couldn’t walk without great pain and I couldn’t sleep-and being a primary school teacher both these factors were interfering with my ability to do my job! From my first consultation with Mr Lusty he was honest, kind and professional. He also has a sense of humour which I greatly appreciated! I had a spinal anaesthetic and my recovery afterwards was better and quicker than I could ever have imagined- I spent 1 night in hospital and was walking with 1 stick when I went home. Mr Lusty takes great care of his patients and I would recommend him to anyone considering hip replacement surgery- every aspect of my operation from the initial consultation, the nursing care and the follow up physio was fab! Thank you Mr Lusty!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review. It is encouraging to everyone involved in looking after patients to here how well they do. Best wishes Patrick Lusty
Mr P. Lusty, has been my knee consultant for over a decade. I have two ( left and right) carefree new knees. One 1yr old and the other 9 weeks old. I am in Ortho terms a young patient 55yrs hence my longevity with Mr Lusty. His attention to detail and perfection is outstanding. I had the misfortune to suffer a stitch abscess and Mr Lusty acted immediately ! Resolving the issue without compromise. He is passionate about perfection, which at times can drive you mad but the prove is in the construction. I am now looking forward to life, and to walking on sand. My heartfelt thanks goes out to Mr Lusty and the Team that he heads up. My only constructive comment would be to ask. Now that Tkr are said to last 20/25yrs why couldn’t I have had mine done before I lost a decade of my mid youth?
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am glad you have recovered well following your knee replacements. The timing of knee replacement surgery is not as straightforward in younger patients. A knee replacement is feels better than a bad knee but not as good as a natural knee where as a total hip can be almost as good. Younger patients have higher expectations, they remember their native knee better and notice the limitations of an artificial knee. This means their satisfaction with the operation is not as high so surgery must be undertaken with more caution. In addition while the average knee replacement lasts a long time the younger patient has longer to live and uses their knee more so will wear their new knee out quicker. Best wishes Patrick Lusty
Two months ago I had a total left hip replacement in the Southend Wellesley Hospital Mr Patrick Lusty carried out the operation and his very professional approach coupled with a readiness to answer all my questions gave me confidence that I was in safe hands. After the operation he came to check on my progress at least twice a day. Thanks to him and his team I have been able to start getting back without pain to my normal activities.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review. I am pleased you are recovering well and I wish you well for the future. Patrick Lusty
I had a serious fall and fractured my left hip very badly. I was operated on my Mr Lusty at Southend Hospital on the NHS. Mr Lusty decided the best option was to give me a total hip replacement as the damage was so severe. It is now 11 weeks on and I would like to thank him for making an extremely upsetting and scary experience far less traumatic. He made me feel safe and explained the whole procedure very clearly to me.. He professionalism is second to none yet there is a kind, compassionate side to him. My scar is extremely neat and I have made good recovery (particularly it was a trauma as well as a hip replacement). I would have no doubt in recommending him. He is a highly skilled, knowledgable surgeon. Everyone I have spoken to who have helped me through this procedure have only the utmost respect for Mr Lusty and I totally agree and appreciate how lucky I was that he was on duty that day. I would like to add that all his team and all the staff at Southend Hospital work very hard and were all very kind.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. I am so glad you have recovered well. Best wishes Patrick Lusty
Mr Lusty is simply the best. His expertise is second to none. I never dreamed that a total knee replacement could have been done with so little post op pain! The whole experience from initial consultation to discharge and physio has been wonderful. Mr Lusty gave me so much confidence to go ahead with the surgery. Simple explanations of the poor condition of both my knees and no nonsense straight talking about what to expect. Within 48hrs of the op I was walking with only 1 stick and after only 1 week I could walk with no sticks at all. I was very apprehensive about having a spinal block anaesthetic, but I was put at ease and helped to decided it was the best option. They were right. spinal block is so much better than a general anaesthetic. No sickness and I was drinking tea within an hour of surgery in the recovery bay. and eating a sandwich when back on the ward. I had to retire early from a very physical job because of the pain in both knees. I could not stand long enough to do my garden, cook, do housework or even walk in the park with my grandchildren . 6 weeks post op and I feel like iv'e got my life back. What a joy to be able to stand for more than 5 mins! Now I can't wait to have the other knee done and improve my mobility even more. I can't thank Mr Lusty enough for his incredible skill and his team for all their care. I feel very honoured and lucky to have received my treatment from this team. Geraldine Brown
Thank you very much for taking the time to give this feedback. I am so glad you have done well after your knee replacement. The best outcomes after knee replacement are are when patients work hard on their rehabilitation so you should credit yourself with your recovery. Best wishes Patrick Lusty
