“I opted to go private because I wanted to be able to choose exactly when I could have my operation and avoid waiting lists. I was hugely impressed with The Horder Centre.
I think what made it different is the fact that it specialises in orthopaedic surgery, and that level of specialism meant that everyone was very knowledgeable. The preparation beforehand gave me confidence, and the aftercare was excellent. I had physiotherapy three times a day.”
“Mr Butler-Manuel was the first consultant I saw who had any time for me and who listened to me. I think what is different about The Horder Centre is the team spirit. Having had countless operations, the Horder Centre is, in my opinion, streets above all the private hospitals I have been in. Nothing was too much trouble. After a couple of weeks I felt my knee wasn’t bending properly and within an hour, I was seeing a doctor then a specialist then a physiotherapist.”
“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 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.”
