Patient testimonial - lumpectomy

In 2016 Lynne underwent breast surgery at Spire Manchester Hospital under the care of Consultant Breast Surgeon, Mr Lester Barr.

"I feel truly blessed to have been a patient and would recommend it unreservedly"

While talking about her experience Lynne said, "I had been on a long journey until I found Mr Lester Barr, my breast surgeon.  From the very first appointment with him, I knew it had been worth the wait.  His calm demeanour, the time he took to listen to me, and his tolerance for the amount of questions I had were the deciding factors. My cancer nurse, Stella, was wonderful, we kept in touch via phone and text working out the surgery details - she is my Cancer Angel. She came up to my room and walked me down to the operating room because I was so terrified, just those little gestures make all the difference to patients.  My biggest fear was the anaesthetic, but after meeting with Mr Huw Maddock on the day of my surgery, all of that disappeared - he was wonderful - I still remember the jokes he told me!"

"On the day of my surgery, 1st June 2016, from the moment I walked into the doors at Spire until the time I was discharged I had superlative care from all of the staff, nothing was too much trouble." 

"I feel truly blessed to have been a patient and would recommend it unreservedly to anyone looking at Spire Manchester Hospital as a surgery centre."

07.07.2016 - Mr Chris Peach talks us through preventing upper limb tennis injuries. As we look forward to the Wimbledon final, the lucky few who will travel down to SW19 can dream of sunshine, strawberries and cream and enjoyable tennis, whilst the rest of the club tennis players are staying at home. For those who are continuing to play this summer, it may not be at the forefront of your minds to consider the frequency and burden of injury to the upper limb in what is a non-contact and leisurely pastime.
