Our patients say . . .
Thank you very much for operating on my father. Your skills have made a huge impact on Dad and he is visibly much better with his rosy cheeks returning to his face. He is now able to enjoy his farmhouse dinners, much to all our pleasure.
My surgery has been more successful than I ever hoped for. From the time I woke up in the theatre recovery are to find I was able to take deep breath. I had not realised that I did not have the freedom to breathe deeply before the surgery. I simply thought that I was unfit as I was unable to exercise comfortably swimming, walking or Pilates. I feel so well and my quality of life has improved beyond any hopes.
My husband and I would like to thank you for all you effort curing my hernia problem … my breathing is much improved. I look forward to a much better quality of life.
Thank you very much for operating on me. I am now relishing in the consumption of double cream, pate, cheese and butter a thoroughly enjoying putting my weight back on!
Thank you so very much. Not to be refluxing, having a sore throat and cough and to be able to sleep lying down is wonderful and has given me back a normal life.
I would like to thank you so much for your help skill and expertise in dong this [abdominal wall hernia repair] and giving me my life back.
I cannot thank you enough for your great care through my surgery. Great to be able to eat normally.
Thank you so much for giving me back the enjoyment of eating and drinking everything again. For so long my acid reflux has dominated my life, making it rather miserable at times but since my operation I am one hundred per cent better and can’t believe the difference it has made, it’s just wonderful.
Further to surgery to remove my gallbladder. I am writing to say a grateful thank you. I returned to work after two weeks, and free of the frightening pain that I had been experiencing prior to surgery and am just feeing so much better!
I would just like to say a huge thank you for the exceptional support I received from you. I’m happy to say I am eating normally again and am totally reflux free. Keep on doing the wonderful job you do.
