Having suffered problems with my knee for years I have had a total knee replacement this week - the surgeon was Mr Jeer and I am delighted that I am up and walking within days and feeling great - pain free at last. The Spencer Wing staff were wonderful and I cannot thank the team enough. Mr Jeer is a specialist knee surgeon and several friends and colleagues have recommended him over the years. I am so happy to have finally had the operation and I am mobile and pain -free from arthritis at last. My scar is neat, I feel wonderful and have walked a kilometre today five days after my operation. I am extremely surprised as I was expecting much worse but I am delighted to report that all is well and I am relieved to be pain free, apart from the post surgery recovery, which is going very well. Thank you Mr Jeer and the Spencer Wing. Five stars and A+ from an ecstatic PE teacher.
From the first consultation with Mr Richard Westerman to my discharge today ( march 22 2018)the treatment and care was first class , both during my stay at the Nuffield hospital and following after care and physiotherpy.Im now walking well without pain . I would recommend this operation to anyone with knee problems, at first it's quite painful , but if you do the recommend exercises it will get easier each day and soon like myself you will be walking well and pain free
From reception onto station 11, the nursing and assistant staff, through to the consultant Mr Large, the anaesthetist Joyce Mitchell, and their theatre staff; the porters, the domestic staff, everybody- I could not have received better care, support and friendly smiling helpful caring staff. The ward was kept clean and tidy, and attentive nursing care meant a happy stay. I will remember how the theatre staff laughed and joined with me to lighten my worry- which was unfounded. As I said to Joyce- a very fantastic experience. Thank you. Connie.
