From my initial consultation with David through to post surgery, I received excellent care . My recovery from keyhole surgery was extremely comfortable with minimal pain or bruising, a testament to his skill as a surgeon.
Mr Khoo has the most incredible surgical ability having carried out a hernia repair on me, I was able to do a little bit of mechanical work within in two days and only had to take a few paracetamol tablets to control a little discomfort. Although my stomach was a little swollen for a short period, I had absolutely no bruising at all and this can only be accredited to his precision and gentle touch.
Mr Khoo explained to me and my wife what exactly was involved in my operation and answered my questions regarding diet post op. As the operation took longer than usual due to my stomach lining being stuck to my chest, Mr Khoo discussed with my wife the reasons for the lengthy operation time. When I was back in my room at the hospital, Mr Khoo made frequent visits to ask how I was feeling and he was very supportive when I mentioned the pain I was experiencing. His bedside manner was excellent. When I was discharged I had follow up appointments with Mr Khoo at 1 and 3 months after the operation. He asked how I was feeling and again offered advice about what to eat and what not to. He invited me to get in touch should any problems develop in the future. Mr Khoo carried out my surgery for an inguinal hernia in 2019 and my hiatus hernia this year and I can't praise him enough for his skill and concern for his patient. If anyone is needing a hernia operation then I highly recommend Mr Khoo as the surgeon
