Patient stories: Jim Eldridge

Jim, 73, said: “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.
