“My surgeon, Sam Rajaratnam, my physiotherapist, Hannah Munn and I all worked together to ensure a swift recovery from the operation. It now means that I can undertake my wheelchair transfers with less pain and manage to mobilise over very short distances with crutches and orthotics.
From my first consultation to the moment I left, the service at The Horder Centre was first class. There is clear emphasis on genuine care, compassion, cleanliness, empathy and viewing the patient holistically."
“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.”
“I liked Mr Teo because he was very informative, supportive and clear in the treatment he felt I would benefit from. I would definitely recommend him and The McIndoe Centre.
I found all the staff excellent. from the warm and welcoming reception staff, to all the nurses who communicated clearly between themselves so I didn’t have to go over information again and again."
"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.”
