“I was extremely happy with my first consultation. Mr Abdelhamid explained the procedures that I could have to my legs to reduce the pains I was suffering, especially at night. The operation went very well and I only needed day admittance. I was treated with upmost care by everybody. I must admit, it was a bit more intense than I thought, but now after six weeks it is getting better day by day. My thanks to everyone involved.“

    I was referred to Mr Abdelhamid by my physiotherapist. I had several consultations with him before he recommended surgery. He was very considered and thoughtful in his explanation of my condition and the reasons for needing surgery - he made me feel very at ease and in safe hands,. Whilst in hospital, I looked forward to his daily visits as he was calm, positive and friendly. The surgery was very successful and I am so glad I was recommended to this surgeon.

    From the minute I met Mr Abdelhamid I felt confident in his ability. I had previously seen three consultants who had given me the wrong diagnosis. Mr Abdelhamid put me in the care of teams at St George's and St Helier hospitals as well as St Anthony's, and monitored my progress at all three. I would recommend him to anybody, I am very satisfied at my treatment from him and his team.

    Mr Abdelhamid explained the procedure clearly before hand and answered any questions I had. The operation itself went smoothly without any issues. I was very pleased with how my consultations and surgery went.
