NJR's 'Hippy Chick' to share hip-op experiences
28 October 2013
The National Joint Registry (NJR) is delighted to announce its ‘Hippy Chick’ steering committee and patient representative Sue Musson has launched a blog to capture her experiences as a pre- and post-operative hip replacement patient.
Expecting her hip operation in around six weeks, Sue Musson commented “I am passionate about relevant and reliable information for patients who are facing procedures like joint replacement surgery. Like many diagnosed with osteoarthritis, I’ve found life is less mobile, but no less busy! That’s why finding helpful information is so important. I thought it might help other patients to hear about my pre- and post-operative experiences and to provide some food for thought. I have certainly found comfort in the conversations I’ve been lucky enough to have with other joint replacement patients.”

“Please share my story with any family, friends or colleagues who you think might benefit. Plus, do see the NJR’s Public and Patient Guide too to find out more about how the registry works for patients – it might just help get together the questions that are most important for you to discuss with your surgeon” Sue concluded.
Future additions to the Hippy Chick blog will be uploaded on the NJR website and available through Facebook and Twitter. Have you found us or followed us yet?
