“Mr Butler-Manuel was the first consultant I saw who had any time for me and who listened to me. I think what is different about The Horder Centre is the team spirit. Having had countless operations, the Horder Centre is, in my opinion, streets above all the private hospitals I have been in. Nothing was too much trouble. After a couple of weeks I felt my knee wasn’t bending properly and within an hour, I was seeing a doctor then a specialist then a physiotherapist.”
"After I broke my leg, I had one leg half an inch shorter than the other so always had to wear orthotics. Now for the first time, this isn’t the case. At the Horder I was blessed with a top surgeon, Hugh Apthorp, and the quality of nursing was excellent. There were real elements of old fashioned nursing care. The food was excellent and everything was of a much higher standard than I expected.
Walking has always been such an important part of my life and I now feel that I can plan ahead for some of the experiences that I was beginning to fear would elude me before I had my hip replacement.”
Mr Lake was very clear in his explanation of what the operation would entail and we discussed the various options of different lenses so that I could choose what was best for me. I was a day patient both times and the care was really excellent from start to finish.
I don’t need to wear glasses now and can thoroughly recommend The McIndoe to anyone who has cataracts. The operations have really made a difference to my life.”
From my first consultation to having a total hip replacement the advice and care were second to none. The care doesn't finish after going home. I received a phone call to check my progress and have the Horder Centre comprehensive book to refer to.
