“Mr Periyathambi Jambulingam was amazing! Excellent surgeon. Unfortunately I have been to A&E after my surgery where everything was checked and over checked and 3 different surgeons commented how good the surgeries (gastric bypass/ gall bladder removal and hernia repair!!!) looked, with no leaks or sign of infection or any other complications. That made me feel really happy and blessed. Mr Jambulingam might not be the most cheerful person/ character BUT sure compensates in professionalism, totally honest, straight forward, clear and to the point, explains everything really well! He did crack a smile today and seemed pleased with my progress bless him. 😊 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“

    I felt immediately at ease when I met Mr Jambulingam. He must have had to explain my (life-changing, for the better) procedure hundreds of times, but still took the time to make sure I understood everything, was comfortable, and he was patient in answering my questions. Follow-ups have been supportive and encouraging. I would unhesitatingly recommend Mr Jambulingam.

    I booked a consultation with Mr Jambulingam because I had a problem with a inguinal hernia. During the consultation he confirmed that I did have a hernia and he explained the possible consequences of leaving it untreated. I agreed to go ahead with the surgery after he explained what was involved. I was offered open or laparoscopic surgery and chose the latter. He visited me in the hospital room prior to being taken to theatre to check everything was alright and get my final consent. The operation was successful and the hernia has disappeared. There was little or no pain afterwards just some mild discomfort, bruising and swelling but he had warned me about this at the consultation. My experience with Mr Jambulingam was very positive. Everything was explained to me before the operation and the operation itself produced an excellent result. As a consequence of my experience with Mr Jambulingam I can highly recommend him.
