Patient Testimonials

  • David Summers

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    "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.”

  • David Goldfinch

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “The worst thing was that my hip stopped me working and the pain meant I couldn’t even put my shoes and socks on. I am already starting to feel better and am walking on crutches and can go up and down stairs. I hope to be back at work towards the end of February.

    “Everything about The Horder Centre was really nice. The staff were lovely. I’ve been to a few hospitals and just found the staff there so friendly – they would do anything for you.”

  • Chris Briggs

    Ophthalmology | The McIndoe Centre

    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.”

  • Michael Welcome

    Knee Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    I couldn’t fault The Horder Centre. The care was excellent. When I had an operation in an NHS hospital 15 years ago, I was in a ward with around eight other people and didn’t sleep but I had my own room at The Horder. I was made to feel at home and everyone made me feel at ease."
