Patient Testimonials

  • David Summers

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    "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.”

  • Kevin Battell

    The Horder Centre

    "I will slowly build up to the point where I can do 5km and 10km and I would really like to do a triathlon. Whether I have another marathon in me, I’ll just have to see.

    The Horder Centre was brilliant. People were very friendly and the food was really nice. I was lucky too as I have friends who work there so a lot of faces were familiar.”

  • Keith Pope

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “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.”

  • Ann Waterman

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “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.”
