As I’m sure is always the case the reality of surgery presented itself as a big decision to take as whilst the potential positives promised a greatly improved quantity of life the possible negative outcomes after months of pain and the accompanying loss of spirit made the decision far more daunting. Mr Dorward’s demeanour whilst friendly was extremely professional and instilled in me great confidence and reinforced my instinct to take whatever chances might be necessary and put myself in his hands . I was standing straight and able to walk within eight hours of surgery and now five days on I’m taking things very carefully but confident that I’m on my way to a complete recovery and for that I shall be eternally grateful to Mr Dorward and his team .
