Thanks for the review. Thankfully the absorbable barbed sutures meant you disposed of your dressing and have healed well regardless.

Mr Sam Heaton has given me two hip replacements in the last year. At my final check up this week his usual friendly, straight talking approach confirmed how right I was to give him my full trust when I had my initial appointment late 2019.

Having patients come back for the second side is very gratifying. I hope you continue to do well.
