Patient stories

Just walking a long distance was becoming very painful. Three months on I can ride on an exercise bike, I can swim, I've walked about three miles in one go which was without pain at all. Carol Baker – Mako SmartRobotics Knee Replacement
Kevin Barton - Total Shoulder Replacement Patient - KIMS Hospital
Since the surgery, my shoulder mobility has got better and better. I am now able to do all the things I was unable to do for some years prior to surgery such as playing golf… but most importantly I am pain free. Kevin Barton – Total Shoulder Replacement
Georgina Hunt - Interventional Cardiology Patient at KIMS Hospital
To be so close to having my operation and then not knowing if it would ever happen due to COVID-19 was devastating. Being treated at KIMS Hospital was the best thing I’ve ever done. Although it is going to take me many months to fully recover, at least I have had it done thanks to the collaboration that was put in place by the NHS and the independent health sector earlier this year. Georgina Hunt – Interventional Cardiology
My stay at KIMS Hospital was great, they really couldn’t do enough for me. The nursing team were incredibly caring and helpful at a very daunting time; everyone put me at ease. Colin Turner – Knee replacement
I am able to go out walking and get out into the garden to do a spot of gardening – these are things I couldn’t do before as I was struggling to walk without a frame and my breath wouldn’t last long enough. Malcolm Greer – Pacemaker
I didn’t really think anything of the lump at first… I have private medical insurance through my husband’s work, so I booked an appointment in the Breast Clinic at KIMS Hospital. Imelda Bell – Breast clinic
Going into KIMS Hospital, it was so welcoming and so hospitable, within such lovely environments where you come in it feels more like a hotel than a hospital. Phillipa – KIMS Hospital patient
Steve tells his story about deciding to undergo surgery for a total hip replacement, the support he received at KIMS Hospital and how his life has changed for the better.
The summer prior to the op was definitely my lowest point. Not being able to run around with the grandchildren to going on holiday with them, being able to lift them on to swings, play hide and seek and walk around the lakes, it’s just pure joy. I just wish I had had this done a lot lot sooner. Steve Way – Total Hip Replacement
Keith Malyon who received successful Cataract Surgery in both eyes at KIMS Hospital, Kent
“It transformed my life. You can’t put a price on your eyesight. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the surgery and KIMS Hospital.”  Keith Malyon – Cataract Surgery
