When Mr Lawrence is not working, he can be found at Copt Heath Golf club, trying to perfect his swing - often more challenging than hip and knee replacement surgery.
Dr Steven Parr
An outstanding anaesthetist and very popular with the patients. He is very personable and inspires confidence in everyone he works with. Dr Parr's preferred technique includes a light general anaesthetic and a spinal anaesthetic inserted once the patient is asleep.
The spinal injection gives pain relief for 6 hours after the surgery. This combination has over the years proved to be very safe. It is administered without discomfort to the patient.
Dr. Parr is extremely experienced and provides excellent aftercare with suitable pain relief and emergency medical cover when required. In the frail patients or those requiring long anaesthetics, we can provide High Dependency Post Operative care as well.
When Dr. Parr is not in the operating room, he can be found walking his dog, who has also had some orthopaedic surgery, in and around Hampton in Arden and Barston.
Jenny has been Mr Lawrence’s secretary for over 10 years. Patients adore Jenny, who will go to any lengths to sort out your queries and anxieties. When she is not answering her phone or typing, or booking operations, she can be found in Earlswood delivering sheep and tending to her menagerie of animals. Don’t be surprised if you hear the bleating of sheep when she answers your call. Jenny is very kind-hearted and will always do her very best to help you. She is hands-on, is well known throughout the hospital and in so many ways irreplaceable. You can trust Jenny to further enhance your hospital experience and lovingly coordinate your aftercare.
The Nursing Team
The nursing team at Spire Parkway Hospital is a highly motivated team of experienced professionals. Many have worked with Mr Lawrence for almost 20 years and together they form a cohesive team that will do their very best to ensure safe and reliable surgery and aftercare.
The Physiotherapy Team
Spire Parkway has an excellent physiotherapy set up. The department is very well equipped with with the latest machinery to enhance your recovery from hip and knee replacement surgery. It is not easy to be a good physiotherapist- on the one hand they have to be encouraging, supportive and motivating but on the other hand a degree of firmness is required. The balance at Parkway is very good and the Physiotherapy Department will do their best to restore your mobility after surgery.
