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

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do so many people need their joints replaced?

The most common reason is osteoarthritis which causes a patient to experience aching, stiffness, and eventual loss of mobility within the knee joint. Inflammation may or may not be present. The pain may be severe at times, followed by periods of relative relief. It often worsens after extensive use of the knee and is more likely to occur at night than in the morning. Stiffness tends to follow periods of inactivity, such as sleep or sitting and can be eased by stretching and exercise. Pain also seems to increase in humid weather. As the disease progresses, the pain may occur even when the joint is at rest and can keep the sufferer awake at night.
