RECENTLY my doctor referred me to an orthopaedic specialist at Holy Spirit Northside
Private Hospital for an opinion or management about my left knee problem.
The specialist’s secretary guided me to have the normal scan, blood tests, ECG and x-rays.
I underwent a robotically-assisted Mako unicompartmental knee replacement on June 5.
Dr Hugh English was the specialist who performed the knee operation and Dr Peter Wong was the anaesthetist specialist.
I just want to say in a humble way, thank you to the doctors, nurses, and all involved who attended to me at all times.
Staff at the Holy Spirit Hospital in Chermside deserve recognition also.
A thank you goes to my health fund too for their attention to my private medical cover, which provided the support at home on discharge from hospital as well.
A special mention to Annette and Bill Hooper who provided transport and purchased food items when needed. Once again, thank you to all involved. — Daryl Rixon, Carseldine
