Additional Information

Patient stories: Dr Joy Virden

Joy Virden had experienced problems with her right hip for around two years. It caused increasing discomfort and meant movement for everyday tasks like putting on shoes and socks and cutting toenails became impossible.

She decided to go privately for her operation with consultant surgeon Mr Sentil Kumar Velayudham at The Horder Centre, after it was recommended by a nursing friend who had her hip replaced at the hospital.
