    Explanation

    He was exceptionally responsive, particularly in arranging for the immediate removal of the stent when it causing problems and in arranging an appointment following bleeding from the bladder stones. I thought he had an excellent manner. Personally I would have appreciated a bit more explanation of exactly what was being done and why. What did not go well was the bleeding caused by the stent following the operation, and things would have been significantly worse if there had been an additional stone in the ureter. So I would ask him to review very carefully whether this operation could be performed differently on future patients.

    Mr Arumainayam is such a lovely, caring, knowledgeable and highly respected Consultant. He has an excellent bedside manner and really put my father at ease throughout his care for us. He gives so much time to explain every detail from investigations, diagnosis to treatment options. He made us feel at ease at all times by allowing family to be well informed during consultations. He also follows up very promptly in writing after consultation giving a very detailed summary of discussions, which are very helpful to serve as a reminder of all that was discussed. We would highly recommend Mr Arum to anyone who requires help from a urological perspective.

    An extremely knowledgable consultant who takes time to firstly explain in detail the reason why a lot of men have problems with their prostate, the options available, what the treatments entail, post procedure expectations plus answer any questions. I really couldnt have asked for a better consultant and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Nimalan Arumainayagam.
