Explanation

Lovely man, who listened to me and explained everything I needed to know. Maybe more time post op when husband was around to discuss what was likely to experience immediately after and how it went as I was too spaced out to understand much but it was just before Christmas so lots of personal things going on for all involved. Overall though, he was great surgeon and very nice man. Would highly recommend

I have worked closely with Mr Kumaran Thiruppathy for the past 8 years. He is an outstanding Surgeon and clinician. We regularly perform combined complex robotic and open operations together. These are always very enjoyable as his skill as a Surgeon and the care and diligence he approaches all his patients, is inspiring. He has taught me a great deal over the years, and his number is always the first number I would call if I needed general surgical advice or guidance. I regularly refer him patients, as I know they are in very safe hands with him.
