Epsom General Hospital, Doking Road, Epsom, England, KT18 7EG
Just over two weeks ago I had anterior hip replacement by mr Riviere, my second hip replacement, my left hip having a successful replacement 18 months ago. This time I chose to stay awake throughout, I was admitted on Tuesday and discharged on Wednesday. Another successful hip replacement, yes the first week I needed anti inflammatory Meds which I hadn’t needed the first time. In saying that the pain started to disappear quickly after the first week and I now need the odd paracetamol and can climb stairs and walk without a stick. Amazing, best hospital and many thanks to my surgeon. Two new hips great work
From the moment I went in the day of my operation I was treated brilliantly by all the staff from pre-op to theatre, recovery room to ward.Everyone made my stay very pleasant
I can’t recommend SWLEOC more highly. I previously had a failed partial knee replacement 18 months ago that was converted to a full replacement 3 months later that was done privately at a BMI hospital. It was an awful experience, very painful and a long recovery - months!, involving a zimmer, then crutches and finally a walking stick. In contrast, day one following a partial knee replacement at SWLEOC, pain is virtually non existent, and I can walk with just one stick. I can’t get over how well I feel and with less medication too. The difference is huge! The care and quality of staff and services here is exemplary and the robot assisted surgery that they undertake is clearly less invasive and more accurate. The NHS Orthopaedic care here is truly first class and my surgeon, Mr Dinah is a superstar!!
