Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on my hip. I can see light at the end of the tunnel. See you again in a few months. Thank you again
Dear Mr Newman and Team, as I did not get to see you personally at the hip clinic on Tuesday. I am writing to thank you and your team for giving up your Saturday to give me a new hip. It has given me my life back and I am very grateful for the care I received.
Dear Simon, I attended your discharge clinic this morning... 6 weeks after you performed a total hip replacement on me. I have to report that my recovery from the operation... and the success of it... can only be described as miraculous. My GP was astonished when I walked into his surgery after just 4 weeks and exclaimed that most people do not reach that condition after 4 months. Indeed, I have been walking totally unaided... and without painkillers since 1 week after the operation and my leg is now totally normal and pain-free. I am virtually unaware that I have had such a serious operation such a short time ago. I just don't know how I can thank you enough and express my admiration for your work. Thank you so much.
I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for your exceptional kindness during my brief stay. I could not receive better care anywhere. Your wonderful expertise has given me pain-free mobility after many years of suffering, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will remember you all forever.
Many grateful thanks for your care and kindness. I am going home today having moved to partial bearing. A great relief
Thank you so much for your wonderful care & for making the whole experience so pleasant. You are all stars!! All the very best to all of you
