When a knee problem started making cycling difficult, Peter Wooster decided it was time for an operation at The Horder Centre.

Now, just 20 months after a half knee replacement, Peter has notched up  4,000 miles on his bike and recently completed the Prudential 100 bike ride, raising £300 for Horder Healthcare at the same time.

Peter, 64, who lives in Tunbridge Wells, said: “I was in constant pain with my knee before the operation in November 2013 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.”

When Peter needed to have an operation, he chose The Horder Centre because of its “exceptional reputation.”

He said: “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”

 

 

When he decided to take part in the Prudential bike ride, which starts in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park then follows a 100-mile route through the capital and into Surrey before finishing in London, Peter decided to raise money for Horder Healthcare as a thank you for his care by all the team but, in particular, surgeon Adrian Butler-Manuel and physiotherapist Alex Barnes. Now, newly retired, Peter is planning his next trip cycling from London to Swansea.
