"It was 1992, I was a very frightened lady - I had a disastrous hip operation – in another hospital I must add – but The Horder Centre rescued me from a life on crutches. Mr. Gallannaugh, a truly wonderful surgeon, performed a hip revision operation and I am able to enjoy life to the full again."
"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.”
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.
“My experience was absolutely marvellous but the two things that made the most impression were the care and cheerfulness of everybody, even the person who dropped off the newspaper was cheerful, and when people are like that, you can’t help but be the same.”
