Jenny Receives Five Star Treatment During Rowley Hip Replacement
Thursday 23 March 2017
Jenny Ball is singing the praises of Rowley Hall Hospital after she received five star treatment during her hip replacement surgery.
The 67-year-old paid her first ever visit to the hospital for a consultation and surgery and is thrilled with the outcome.
Jenny had experienced problems with her hip for a decade but as the pain worsened over time and she started limping she approached her GP to try and find a long term solution.
She was referred to hip specialists at Rowley Hall and met with consultant Mr Amit Patel who talked her through the problem following an X-Ray.
Jenny discovered the cartilage in her hip had completely degenerated and Mr Patel suggested that a full hip replacement was the best option for her.
After the initial consultation, Jenny was given a date for surgery but the operation was brought forward to Jenny’s delight.
Jenny said: “I reached the point where the pain in my hip was so bad that I could only walk a couple of hundred yards. It was affecting my mobility and my day-to-day life.
“I had tried pain killers and spells of physiotherapy but they were always only short term solutions.
“In the end I went back to my GP and that’s when I discovered Rowley Hall. I had never been to the hospital before and I wasn’t aware of all the specialties that the hospital offers.”
Patients can be referred to Rowley Hall through the NHS for surgery or pay privately for their treatment to speed up the process.
Jenny said: “I certainly know about Rowley Hall now and I am very impressed with the hospital. It is one of the nicest environments in which to have any surgery.
“The hospital is spotlessly clean and there are good facilities throughout and the staff can’t do enough for you.”
Mr Patel is an expert in hip replacements, knee surgery, knee replacements, knee arthroscopy, ligament reconstruction and cartilage regeneration.
Jenny added: “I can’t thank the staff at Rowley Hall enough. Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
“The consultant Mr Patel was also fantastic and he talked me through the process and was very reassuring on the day of surgery as well.”
