    Right from the initial consultation I have found Professor Chinegwandoh to be straight-talking regarding my projected TURP treatment, as well as friendly and approachable. I take his professional expertise and experience for granted. He was recommended to me by an acquaintance of my wife, met at the church she attends, who is an orthopaedic surgeon in a London hospital.I have now had the operation and believe that my recovery and convalescence are proceeding normally. I have been invited to a follow-up consultation on 23 April 2021 at which my progress will be reviewed. Altogether I have been wholly satisfied by my treatment.

He then explained his thoughts and my options going forward thoroughly. I felt very satisfied with the outcome.

    I had a frenuloplasty with Professor Frank Chinegwundoh. The entire experience was fantastic. Professor was incredibly kind and supportive throughout the entire process. Even after my operation, Professor ensured I was happy and comfortable before I went home. My results are brilliant and ultimately life changing - It has increased my confidence drastically and is a huge weight off my shoulders. I would urge absolutely anyone considering the operation to delay no further and book a consultation with Professor Chinegwundoh. I will be forever grateful for his service.
