Thank you gor your kind feedback
Many thanks indeed. Always appreciate any feedback!
Many thanks for your positive feedback!
Thank you so much for your feedback!
Many thanks. Would always advocate a laparoscopic repair of a groin hernia when feasible, but it’s an inadvisable procedure for some.
Many thanks. I think I have done in the region of 400 since I started doing abdominal wall reconstruction.
Many thanks. Synchronous resection of primary bowel cancer and liver metastases is appropriate for some cancers. The potential advantages are shorter overall stay than two separate operations, shorter overall treatment timescale, shorter time to starting chemotherapy, lower morbidity, single incision and less overall cost. The patient and procedure does have to be carefully selected though as it means subjecting a patient to two major operations at the same time.
Many thanks for your positive feedback!
