From initial consultation to surgery I have had a very good experience. Mr Maytham described what my issue was , and showed me on an ultra-sound scan. He also explained what he was going to do, and what I could expect post op. I had full trust in him and I am very pleased with the results.

I had general surgery performed by Mr Gary Maytham. Everything went very well and on the evening of the op. All the details of the procedure that I was having and what to expect during and after, was explained thoroughly through the appointments that I attended and the paperwork that I received. I am more than pleased and happy with the outcome, and will certainly be recommending him.

On my initial visit Mr. Maytham explained fully the procedure I would undergo, possible after-effects, and answered my questions in a polite and helpful way, demonstrating what the scans he took showed concerning the veins he would operate on. The operation itself was straightforward and almost painless. I was given information sheets to take home, and encouraged to get in touch if I had any concerns. On my follow-up visit Mr. Maytham examined my legs, again with the aid of scans, asked if I had experienced any pain, and referred me for treatment on the remaining thread veins.

I found Mr Maytham to be professional, clear and extremely courteous. He explained everything to me about the operation and the risks. Despite warning me of one possible complication, Mr Maytham performed the operation very well and it all went very smoothly (my thanks too to the anaesthetist!). Mr Maytham was again professional, clear and courteous for my follow up consultation. He saw me on time and I was on my way promptly. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Maytham to anyone else.

I first met Mr Maytham at an informative seminar evening at Spire hospital Gatwick regarding varicose veins procedures. This highly informative event gave me the encouragement to proceed in making a consultation with Mr Maytham. From the very outset the whole experience couldn’t have gone better. My Maytham explained everything clearly and in detail of what the procedure would entail, the outcomes and possible side effects. He has an excellent bedside manner, very patient and I never felt rushed in any of his consultations and was always given an opportunity to ask any questions. The procedure itself went very smoothly, I recovered very well and quickly, I am also extremely happy with the results which have surpassed my expectations. All in all I am extremely satisfied with my treatment and would definitely recommend Mr Maytham to others requiring varicose veins surgery.

Mr Maytham recently carried out my bilateral varicose vein removal at under GA at Gatwick Park Hospital. I have felt fully informed at all stages from initial consultation, actual procedure and follow-up, and have been very impressed by the professionalism and empathy of all the team involved with the treatment. I am delighted with the outcome and how my legs now appear 8 weeks post op. Would highly recommend Mr. Maytham to anyone considering getting their veins treated.

Never nice to have to have invasive treatment on leg veins, but Gary was professional, approachable and addressed all my concerns from the first meeting. He explained exactly what he proposed to do and the results I could expect. My procedure was performed under a general anaesthetic and had no complications, the treatment I received from all concerned during my very short hospital stay was efficient and friendly. Once my bruising had disappeared, I was delighted with the appearance of my legs and that the unsightly veins had gone. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family and in fact, I already have!

My Maythem examined the varicose veins in my right leg and discussed with me the options available for treatment. I opted for the day surgery in St Antony's and, as my veins were a bit "fiddly" a full anesthetic. Mr Maythem was able to give me a cost for this treatment at the consultation. I am healthy and did not expect any problems and there were none. The operation went very well from which I recovered very quickly. The nursing after- care was excellent -as was the post op sandwich. The worst part of the whole event was putting on the support stockings. I had the operation about 8 weeks ago and my leg looks so much better. I am back playing tennis - in shorts.

After my recent procedure under the outstanding care of Mr Maytham whom I found to be very professional, caring and friendly he came to visit me directly before my operation which I greatly appreciated as I was feeling apprehensive. He explained everything in perfect detail before and after the op so I knew exactly what would occur. Mr Maytham has achieved an exceptional result for which I am truly grateful and appreciate all of his time, effort and hard work. I would highly recommend him and aftercare was spot on too. Thank you so much.

Gary Maytham was professional, easy to talk to. He explained the procedure in detail and any possible after effects. It went smoothly and I had very little initial pain. On returning home I did not require pain killers. The only problem I would point out if anyone lives on their own. It is worth noting that I struggled to put the support stockings on myself post-procedure. I would imagine this would be very difficult to achieve by oneself.'
