Park Hospital Form - One question, "Do you trust this Doctor ?"
Mister Benjamin Bloch is a gifted Surgeon, and do I trust him ? - - without a doubt
I feel quite emotional writing this as I was once again, touched by his friendly professionalism, Surgical skills, no-nonsense confidence, knowledge and expertise -
His wonderful head of wavy hair also deserves a mention.
6 days ago, on the 9th. November 2023, the good gentleman replaced my second hip.
Beginning to end, from entering the Hospital very scared, to the super friendly considerate Porter escorting me to our Vehicle I only have praise to write home about.
No matter the patient, no matter their job, profession, enormous wealth or lack of, intelligent or otherwise, once an arm is threaded into that hospital gown we are on the same level, totally reliant on Hospital Staff and there are some seriously good nurses, male and Female at the Park Hospital.
Day after the operation, probably due to exhaustion, I suffered from hours of ghastly nausea with pain off the scale when attempting to stand. Once I mentioned the problem, a male and female nurse took firm control, grasped and fettled that nettle with appropriate medication and within no time I was sitting up and confident enough to tackle test a few stairs which in turn would enable me to be allowed home.
Apart from Mister Bloch, there are probably more of his Team, those out of view and I offer my humble thanks, and of course, the two gentleman Anaesthetists, one chap gently holding my shoulders giving me great comfort chatting about Muffin, whilst the other soothingly guided me through whilst administering spinal anaesthetic. It would be an honour to shake their hand.
To sum it up, this Surgeon is special, if cloning were possible, there should be a Benjamin Bloch,
Orthopaedic Surgeon in every Hospital.
All in all, another good job well done
