“All I can say is why did I wait so long! The McIndoe Centre was fantastic! The staff and nurses were excellent, as was the food and my room. From the moment I arrived I was looked after by a team of friendly efficient staff and I always knew what was going on and why.
Six weeks after the operation, the vision in my eye is already better than it was before the operation and should hopefully improve significantly over the next few months.”
“I was in constant pain with my knee before the operation and it meant that walking was seriously curtailed and when I cycled it was beginning to hurt. Since the operation, the more cycling I do, the better the knee gets.
The entire care package was excellent. The Horder Centre is different because it is a specialist hospital with a world-class reputation that I found to be incredibly professional yet so friendly with really fantastic staff.”
“I was looked after very well and liked the fact that most patients were there for similar operations, so you didn’t feel alone. The first couple of months after the operation were the toughest. I only managed to walk about a quarter of a mile with a stick, but I gradually started walking a little further and then one day I realised I actually walked better without the stick. I managed to get up Vesuvius, with the help of my daughter Pippa and by taking breaks. I would never have been able to do the climb before the operation.”
“I have already recommended The Horder Centre to friends. I had a super experience there. The personal attention and very nice accommodation made it very different.
My fitness was pretty compromised before the operations but I took the rehabilitation very seriously and since then have been able to return to my aikido training and teaching with renewed vigour, plus daily cycling and some running, though keeping to under five miles. It all shows the efficacy of great surgery and focused rehab.”
