"I got my life back"

Dear Mr Moss

This is a slightly delayed thank you for the excellent care and attention I have received at The Nuffield Hospital in February where you performed a total hip replacement for me.

I have now fully recovered and am able to do all the things I had almost totally given up before.  I go to the gym, walk the dogs and am able to swim properly again due to the operation.  I have no pain at all even after doing the things mentioned above, as your secretary Niki said when I spoke to her the other day "I got my life back".

The staff at The Nuffield are excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them.  This means absolutely everyone there, doctors, physiotherapists, catering and domestic teams.  I was able to recover in hospital and felt confident leaving on crutches, returning some 6 weeks later to see you without them or a stick for my post-op check up.

I would recommend you to anyone, and in fact did at the weekend when a friend of mine mentioned she had pain in her hip and knee, you may hear from her soon.

Once again many thanks for your amazing work and care.

Yours Sincerely

 

Eileen Gregory

Keeping the greatest polo players playing

 

In 2013 Mr Moss treated the captain of the Argentinian and South American polo teams, Ignacio (Nacho to friends) Figueras. He is one of the top 100 players in the world, with a six-goal handicap and has been the face of Ralph Lauren’s Black Label since 2005.

During the 2013 St Regis International Cup, he suffered a crashing fall as his horse somersaulted over him and he fractured his pelvis. 

"When I fractured my pelvis falling from a horse playing high goal polo in May 2013, at Cowdray Park Polo Club in West Sussex, I was totally unprepared for the pain and almost complete debilitation I experienced in those first few hours and days.  Having Mr Moss assigned as my orthopedic surgeon, at St. Richards Hospital, was a blessing.  As one of the UK's top orthopedic surgeons he wholeheartedly recommended that I should NOT have an operation on my pelvis, and instead to allow my body to heal naturally (for the first week under his daily care).
