Knee Surgery

The “cheerfulness” of The Horder Centre team left its mark on retired scientist Dr Peter Lee when he underwent a knee replacement earlier this year.


Dr Lee, 78, who lives near Tunbridge Wells, said: “My experience was absolutely marvellous but the two things that made the most impression were the care and cheerfulness of everybody, even the person who dropped off the newspaper was cheerful, and when people are like that, you can’t help but be the same.”

Dr Lee’s left knee had been causing problems for around 12 years before the pain stopped him walking a couple of months before his operation.

After his wife’s good experience at The Horder Centre where she underwent two knee operations by consultant surgeon Sam Rajaratnam, there was no question of Dr Lee choosing anywhere else (or any other surgeon) when he decided to have his knee replacement through his private health insurance.

He said: “The whole experience was very positive and so was my wife’s. I was very impressed with it all. My recovery couldn’t have been better.”

Now Dr Lee is following his exercise programme at home and can walk at least half a mile.
