“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.”
“My experience at The Horder Centre was excellent, from my surgeon, Mr Gibb, and the neatness of the operation, to the physiotherapy and the post-operative care. The operation has made an incredible difference to me. Before, I could not even walk 50 yards because it was so painful. Now I am walking pain-free.”
“I limped through 2013, constant pain mitigated slightly by exercises and drugs. I began to think of myself as disabled. Not getting a parking place near my destination could reduce me to tears.
When I finally decided to have a hip replacement, I was in The Horder Centre for two nights, then home walking on two sticks. For me it was a miracle to be able to walk again, without pain. The expertise of my surgeon Hugh Apthorp was key as he is a genius but I am extraordinarily grateful for the care and exceptional nurses at The Horder Centre which is a beautifully designed facility. Everyone was so efficient and kind.”
“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.”
