About: Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital

I am an elderly person and I began experiencing serious pain in my wrist and thumb which then progressed to " Trigger finger" - or more simply explained, inability to straighten my middle finger when I clenched my fist. I was given an admission date recently.

From the pre-admission staff to the admitting Registered Nurse (who was absolutely lovely) to the best (in my opinion) anaesthetist ever, Brad. Not to mention the great surgeon who sadly I never met as I was out of it. I was made to feel special, safe, comfortable and absolutely fab before and after procedure with no discomfort or pain. Hooray!
