Hear Nick’s story
Nick Shalley did his orthopaedic rehabilitation at Arcadia Pittwater following a double knee replacement – participating in a daily program of physiotherapy and hydrotherapy.
He was referred to the hospital by his surgeon and also received personal recommendations from friends. Nick visited Arcadia Pittwater before his surgery to decide whether to do his post-op rehab in a hospital or at home. He said the facilities and the care and expertise of staff made the decision an easy one. Listen to the story of Nick’s rehab journey back to full mobility and independence.
