Dear Mr Al-Musawi, I just wanted to write to say a big thank you for all of your help and care in dealing with my recent abdominal hernia. I am so grateful and feel better than I have for months (and I will keep on losing weight - 1.5 stone so far!!) I am so grateful for your help - I know it was a long road. With kindest regards

Having never had surgery before, I was very nervous. Mr Al-Musawi and his team put me at ease. Great clinical outcome, looking forward to playing tennis again!
