    Hello again Bethy.

    I went to the Treatment Centre at Lister Hospital in Stevenage,Herts.

    The only fault was lack of staff, bug those working there were all lovely.

    Hi Bethy,

    After reviewing NHS Choices compared my two local hospitals results for TKR and chose Bedford General Hospital good outcome results and infection rates for surgeon  I asked to be referred to.

    3 day stay

    Pre-op - fabulous apart from a few bits of info wrong such as starved from midnight when I went down last on an all day list. 

    Inpatient Care-  Brilliant considering how busy they were

    Consultant - Brilliant and mild mannered considering the brutality of their surgery. However cant believe he did it through minimially invasive 6 inch scar!! He is tidy!

    Anaethetist- Super Brilliant put me at ease for having epidural. Took such care in supporting my RA neck during op and in pain managment. I want him for my 2nd knee??!!!

    Physios - encouraging and helpful.

    I reside in the United States so I chose the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Jacksonville, which serves the North East. I was please with the doctor that I chose, however, you could find a good surgeon in the State the you resides -- just do your research. Good luck. J21370

    Hi I live in Scotland so had my bi-lateral TKR done in the New Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.  Surgeon excellent, anaesthetist put me at ease as I didn't want a spinal but glad I did and I could not fault the rest of the staff even although they were very busy nothing was too much bother.  Good Luck
