Sophia's story - Hip surgery at RNOH
Listen to Sophia to talk about her experience of coming into the RNOH for both NHS and private care for hip surgery.
Sophia wants to be a professional dancer/performer so it was crucial to her that the care she received from us would not limit her ability to dance.
Through the skill of Mr Tahir Khan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, and the post-surgery rehabilitation offered by the RNOH, Sophia has the best chance of fulfilling her ambition to be a dancer. Mr Khan specialises in hip preservation surgery, pelvic osteotomies, hip arthroscopy, neuromuscular disorders and children's orthopaedics.
