“Although I was initially surprised when I was told I needed the operation because the hip hadn’t been causing me much pain, the x-rays revealed that it was shot to pieces. I am very glad now that I had it done and can’t speak highly enough of Mr Apthorp and his team.”
“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.”
“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.”
“All the staff at The Horder Centre were so helpful. It was great that someone actually took notice and realised what a negative impact the bunions were having on me. The operation has given me a new lease of life. In addition to walking again, I am now cycling too."
