Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

In August 2017, after a long period of immobility and pain, I underwent a partial knee replacement.

Before the procedure I had limited mobility and had to use a walking aid to get around, being a keen walker this impacted on my daily life as I wasn’t able to walk long distance and climbing the stairs felt like an impossible task as it caused excruciating pain. This took its toll on my health and well-being, due to the lack of exercise it lead to considerable weight gain.

After my procedure I was advised that I would not be able to attend work for 12 weeks, to allow for a full recovery. However after six weeks of following my aftercare gym programme my recovery began to improve. I returned to work 10 weeks post op.

12 months on and I now have full mobility with no pain at all. I consider undergoing a partial knee replacement one of the best decisions I have ever made. I cannot thank Spire Cheshire Hospital and Mr Robb enough for helping me get my life back and start being able to do the things I love again without any pain.
