Excellent communication explained everything.
Wonderful thank you so much
A very pleasant and clever man. It was a pleasure attending my appointments and he managed to make a good job of repairing my pylon fracture/dislocation in my ankle so that I can nearly walk soundly and best of all I am back on my horses. His secretary, Mary Wilkinson, was a delight.
In July of 2017 I badly broke my leg, fib, tib and ankle. I had a external frame fitted to my leg and every 4 weeks since I have visited the orthopaedics department. It’s been a really tough 6 months and I wouldn’t say that I’ve been impressed with every part of the NHS. The Orthopaedics department staff are awesome and have given me the best care possible. They are always working hard and nothing appears to be too much trouble. My treatment in the Orthopaedics department at RBH has been first class. I’d like to thank everyone there for all their hard work, commitment and outstanding professionalism. The Orthopaedics department at the RBH is the NHS at is best.
Thank you so much for doing a great job to my leg. At least now I can go back to full-time DIY jobs!
I write to say a word of thanks to yourself and you colleagues for enabling me to walk again in confort. The entire process the surgery, the aftercare and subsequent treatments, I am pleased to say, has been painless and trouble free. I am so very grateful!
Tank you for mending my leg. I am most grateful. Wishing you a very happy Christmas and best wishes for 2018!
Knee Arthroscopy - like I have a new knee! Minimal scaring, no infection picked up, all my false teeth intact from the anaesthetic - what's not to like?
Mr McAndrew has been fantastic throughout our appointments. He is very punctual, personable and very professional.
Very knowledgeable and talented surgeon who attended to my badly broken leg. A far from straightforward clinical situation that went on for over 2 years. Furthermore, a very pleasant and likeable man with wonderful bedside manner
