"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.”
“I felt I needed the operation sooner rather than later and decided to use my private health insurance. One of my friends had a hip operation at The Horder Centre and I could see good reports about it. I got a referral from my GP at the end of October and had my operation three weeks later.”
“I chose The Horder Centre because an actor friend of mine, whom I see once a year, had just had an operation there and said it was absolutely brilliant.
All the staff, from the surgeon to the hall porter (apart from the fact he supported Spurs), were top drawer. I think it is the attention to detail that makes The Horder Centre special. My brother, who had a similar operation elsewhere, couldn’t believe it when I told him that a nurse escorted me to my car when I left.”
“I liked Mr Teo because he was very informative, supportive and clear in the treatment he felt I would benefit from. I would definitely recommend him and The McIndoe Centre.
I found all the staff excellent. from the warm and welcoming reception staff, to all the nurses who communicated clearly between themselves so I didn’t have to go over information again and again."
