A leg up for knee patients!

PATIENTS who have undergone knee operations are set for a more speedy recovery after new equipment was presented to George Eliot Hospital.

Nuneaton League of Friends has handed over two passive movement machines costing nearly pounds 5,000 to the Nason and Victoria wards.

The equipment, which was also funded by the orthopaedic wards, will help patients with knee bending exercises after some types of knee replacement surgery, injuries and fractures, and will lead to a quicker rehabilitation period.

Staff surgeon Vijay Kane said: "We are very grateful to receive these machines, because without them the outcome of the results of knee surgery may not be that good."
