    Mr Yanni made me feel comfortable from the minute we met. He explained the procedure in detail and in layman's terms. I met him a couple of times as I had to cancel the first date due to unforeseen circumstances and in all instances the meetings were professional and confidence inspiring. His office kept me informed of date changes and instructions. Any queries I posed via email were answered within 24 hours. During the operation his team were instructed clearly and responded accordingly. The whole experience was efficient, friendly and painless. I am really pleased with the outcome.

    I have met Mr Yanni on 4 separate occasions and he has always been absolutely charming while ensuring that the medical situation and associated prognoses was absolutely clear, and more importantly fully understood by myself. He operated on my shoulder 4 weeks ago and has continually monitored my progress and aspirations.... During all our consultations he manages to represented the perfect balance of a top surgeon and a close friend giving honest and valued advice. I'm sure if you look up the definition of consultant in the dictionary you may well see his picture. Surgery is never what you want, but if you need these specific surgical skills I would recommend Mr Yanni unreservedly I

    Dimitri Yianni performed a needle fasciotomy to relieve my Dupuytren's contracture. He took time to explain the procedure thoroughly, and also to allay any anxiety I had about it. He was approachable, good humoured and totally professional, and performed the procedure expertly. In fact I experienced almost no pain or discomfort afterwards during the healing process and was quickly able to resume full and improved function of my hand, in particular playing the piano. I was very impressed and would not hesitate to request Mr Yianni the next time I need this procedure (as it is a recurring condition).

    I was very lucky, first having Mr Yanni as my surgeon and secondly having my operation just days before the COVID-19 lockdown. My whole experience from first meeting Mr Yanni, the diagnosis and then the treatment gave me so much confidence and piece of mind in his and his teams ability. Even through the lockdown when face to face has been difficult I never felt that I was alone and out of contact, his response is always quick and comforting. I suffered extensive ligament damage to my shoulder and the prognosis is of a full recovery. The results have been astonishing.

After a fall at work I received severe damage to my right shoulder, I was in great pain and did not expect my arm to return to full motion or use. Four months after the operation my right arm has full range of movement. With the help of Dimitri and his team we are now working to return my arm to full strength and I have no doubt this will happen. My after care has been incredible with regular calls regarding my progress. Dimitri is a fantastic surgeon with a fantastic team. I cannot thank Dimitri, Caroline, Scott and the rest of the team enough.

    Mr Yanni operated to fix my rotator cuff in my left shoulder on 16th December. He made a real effort to ensure I understood what was involved and to fit me in on his list before Christmas. He even phoned me on the Sunday before my op to ensure I was happy about having the op and if I had any concerns. The op went well and now, early March, making a very good recovery, certainly much faster than he had indicated I would be. Mr Yanni likes to use a particular Physio who knows exactly how Mr Yanni likes the shoulder to be exercised after a rotator cuff op and they work well as a team Mr Yanni is always friendly, supportive and gives you time which is probably why appointment times can slip. I would not hesitate to use him again.

    Wow, where do I begin? I was referred to see Mr Yanni via the NHS after suffering what they believed to be Rotator cuff damage. From the moment I met Mr Yanni, he was kind, welcoming, friendly and very very professional. He arranged for me to have immediate X-rays and an MRI which confirmed I had a full-thickness tear to my Rotator cuff on my right shoulder. Without further ado, Mr Yanni had booked me in for surgery and it was all systems go. Unfortunately, surgery had to be cancelled due to me having some issues found at my pre-assessment. Once all my issues had been sorted I visited Mr Yanni again and received the same high level of care and attention that I had the first time round. I have now had my surgery which involved extensive Rotator cuff repair and LHB bicep tenodesis which went fantastically well and I am now about to embark on the next chapter of my recovery with the Physio team. I owe a debt to Mr Yanni that I will never be able to pay back. I can say without a shadow of doubt that Mr Yanni is one of the kindest, friendliest and least of not all professional men I have ever met in my life and felt safe and secure in his very capable hands. I cannot to begin to thank him enough and I have felt privileged to have met him. I am eternally grateful and thank you again sir.

    In late January I saw Mr Yanni for the first time regarding issues with my hands, unable to grip anything tightly, pins and needles waking me up every morning, and struggling in general (cutting wires etc),with my new planned career as an electrian. On my first visit to Mr Yanni he diagnosed me with Carpal Tunnel. On the 17th March I had the operation for this in my left hand and already just two weeks later the difference is very apparent, No pins and needles in that hand at all and healing very nicely as well. Been to see Mr Yanni again today to get my right hand booked in.

    I consider Mr Yanni to be the ultimate professional with his excellent "bedside manner" and undoubted surgeon's skills. He repaired my left rotator cuff some 17 years ago with near one hundred percent success. He has recently repaired a bad tear in my right rotator cuff. I am confident that, with his skill, care and attention, I will achieve q similar result this time despite being "17 years less young" ( his words ! ). Many thanks.

    My experience of Mr Yanni (who performed surgery on my Dupuytren's Contracture on 10 Feb 2020) is difficult to put into words as he scores so highly in all aspects. From the initial consultation with Mr Yanni, where he's calm nature put me at total ease, he referred back to having treated me for the same issue on 3 other occasions and having explored the various options this time we agreed that surgery was the right thing to do. Mr Yanni is very relational, which I think is quite rare with a consultant. In the short periods of time I have spent with Mr Yanni( eg in the initial consultation to the pre and post-operation visit to the 2 week follow-up, Mr Yanni always treats me as an individual not a number. He ensures that I am happy, confident, calm, informed and feel included in the decisions eg about surgery. Mr Yanni is one of the most empathic professionals whom I've ever come across and as an Executive Coach, I work with many professionals in different industries. It really is a privilege to have Mr Yanni as my consultant. In addition to his empathy Mr Yanni is an excellent physician and his intricate work on my hand (on 4 occasions) has again been of the highest quality. He really cares about his work eg his being pleased with the output of previous surgery on my hands from my perspective. Mr Yanni is an ardent professional and I am 100% confident when in his care. It's rare in my experience to come across someone who in addition to being a talented consultant has amazing humility and humour and really seems to care about my well-being. Warmest thank you.

    Mr Yanni has carried out operations on both of my hands. Nothing was to much trouble for him, gave clear concise explanations each time both before and after the operation. He also made my wife feel very welcome at the post operation appointments, talking to her and making her feel part of the process. I would recommend Mr Yanni to both friends and family

    As soon as I met Mr Yanni I knew I was in very safe hands. He is so personable and very kind and reassuring. He quickly put me at ease and surgery was scheduled to resolve my carpel tunnel release. Surgery day went well with Mr Yanni looking after me I was not worried and was looked after well. I am feeling the benefits of my surgery already although obviously still early days for my recovery from the actual surgery. Mr Yanni is a very special man who puts his patients first. Thank you for looking after me.
