Excellent care from Mr Lim with both hip replacement operations . Always explained when and what was going to happen . I'm grateful he has made me pain free and able to enjoy life again .
Mr Lim is a superb surgeon. As he had previously performed my hip replacement, I felt that it was important that he operate on my knee replacement. He is kind, courteous, and very understanding. Highly recommended.
on my experience a brilliant surgeon looks after you and tells you what he’s going to do very happy had both hips done now with mr lim
Mr Justin Lim is an excellent surgeon. He is very professional polite and friendly. I had a total hip replacement six weeks ago the surgery was fine followed by an incredible recovery.The level of care that I received through out was superb The dreadful pain that had immobilised me for so long has completely gone, and I am walking and taking the stairs without aids.l am delighted with the outcome and would not hesitate to have the procedure again if it became necessary. I highly recommend Mr Lim to anyone that needs othopaedic surgery. He has to be one of the best, and for this I will always be grateful.
First consultation Mr Lim outlined the problem described the procedure gave me a time framework The surgery was completed on the stated day The planned procedure was talked through immediately prior the operation At all times I was kept fully informed Post operation I was seen by Mr Lim in the evening and again the following morning. At all times nursing staff were available. Physio follow up post operation both within the Nuffield and my local hospital(Leek Moorlands) has been of a high quality. Seven weeks on from the hip replacement I am thrilled with the outcome and the skill of Mr Lim and aftercare shown by his colleagues.
This is the second hip replacement and has been a much quicker and less painful recovery. The wound is very clean and flat and throughout the process, everything was explained. At my 6 weeks follow up appointment Mr Lim was very thorough in his explaination of how to proceed with managing movement following surgery to avoid hip dislocation. I am very happy with the whole process and the outcome following Mr Lim's surgery.
