    I feel very lucky to have had my treatment with Dr El-Husseiny! Following a diagnosis of kidney stones, he explained all options to me very clearly and this helped me make a well-informed choice. And the surgery went well, even the follow-up stent removal was smooth. I was very very nervous as I had read strange stories on google, however the Dr was very assuring, put me at ease & indeed it was a painless event - i was under well experienced hands!!

    I am very happy with the operation that I had done by Mr El-Hussainy. His bedside manner was very good, he gave me several options for treatment and answered all my questions. Postoperative I had limited discomfort that I was warned well in advance. The overall experience was excellent and I would recommend anyone that has similar issues with me to have the treatment with Mr El-Hussain’s.
