My Jayanthi removed my gall bladder the surgery all went to plan and I now feel like a new person well in myself and my body I have so much more energy and enjoying life again. In my last consultation I was explained exactly what happened in the surgery and was checked over to make sure everything was healing well. Thankyou Mr Jayanthi

    He explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. Things felt a little rushed on the day of the operation itself but I suspect that was more due to a full list than any desire on his part to rush. Surgery went smoothly and recovery also.

    I saw Mr Jayanthi last year to discuss bariatric surgery. He was very thorough and ensured I understood everything before listing me for a gastric bypass. I had the surgery just before Christmas (my choice). I saw him on the ward before surgery, where he again was very reassuring. He has a lovely bedside manner and really puts you at ease. He's also happy to answer all your questions. I then saw him several times post surgery before I went home, and then again regularly in clinic. Every time he has been fantastic. I have had no problems following surgery and am now at almost 100% of excess weight lost after only 7 months! I am extremely happy to have had the surgery and so pleased I found Mr Jayanthi to do it. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking of bariatric surgery
