  • Prof Meek, Glasgow, 09/10/19, 58mm 52mm head
I feel the urge to praise my treatment as a Scottish person in the UK and our amazing National Health Service! My resurfacing was carried out by a Consultant, Professor of orthopaedic surgery in Glasgow at a cost of 0 (to me personally). He does not promote his skill nor is in the business of doing such (however, has carried out 100s or even 1000s of resurfacings and THRs). My care in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital was exemplary (single room, on suite etc). The staff are unsung heroes in my opinion, I received the most up to date prosthesis, surgical technical expertise and aftercare. If I were to go Private, the operation would most likely cost approx of 14000. Mr Dominic Meek, I salute you and your staff! And thank you ever so much! At week 22 post op, I am now running 50 miles per week and hope to build  up pace ever so gradually!
