I WAS REFERRED TO SEE MR PHALTANKAR VIA THE NHS ASSESSMENT PROCEDURE. MY CONSULTATIONS TOOK PLACE AT THE HIGHFIELD BUPA HOSPITAL,ROCHDALE. HE OUTLINED THE PROCEDURE AND I ASKED RELEVANT QUESTIONS, THERE WAS AN ADDITIONAL COMPLICATION THERFORE I NEEDED A CAT SCAN, AGAIN CARRIED OUT IN A MOBILE UNITVISITING HIGHFIELD HOSPITAL. I WAS SEEN SPOT ON EIGHTEEN WEEKS FOR SURGERY AND SPENT FOUR NIGHTS IN HOSPITAL. ON THE DAY OF THE SURGERY MR PHALTANKAR VISITED ME BEFORE HAND AND BRIEFED ME ON THE OP FOLLOWED BY THE ANAESTHETIST. FOLLOWING MONTHS IF ANXIETY AND LIMITED QUALITY OF LIFE, MY FEARS DISAPPEARED THAT DAY. AS SURGERY WAS ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON, MR PHALTANKAR VISITED ME ON THE MONDAY EVENING TO CHECK MY CONDITION.I HAVE NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR MY CONSULTANT AND THE WHOLE TEAM AT HIGHFIELD, ON MY JOURNEY I MET MANY DIFFERENT PROFESSIONALS, ALL SUPPORTED BY THE PEOPLE I WILL CALL BEHIND THE SCENES STAFF. FOLLIWING DISCHARGE I ATTENDED THE PHYSIOTHERAPY CLINIC AROUND SIX TIMES AND CONTINUED EXERCISES AT HOME. I WAS SEEN IN THE OUTPATIENTS CLINIC AFTER SIX WEEKS AND AGAIN AT SIX MONTHS BY MR PHALTANKAR, I ALSO HAD AN X RAY TO CHECK THE LATEST PROGRESS. I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND
