We flew from Dubai as we decided to deliver our first baby in London and found Dr Digesu. I have never left a doctor appointment smiling. But today I am so happy after I left Dr Digesu office. He made me feel at ease, explained everything. What a wonderful doctor and we could not be more happy. I did not know you still find such gems.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr Digesu. I avoided prolapse surgery for years until I met Dr Digesu. Dr Digesu is a well known expert in vaginal reconstruction and child birth trauma and I wanted to personally express my gratitude to Dr Digesu for enabling me to have a normal life again. He took the time to listen all my issues and concerns. All of my questions were answered clearly. Of great importance to me also, is the respectful manner in which Dr Digesu engages with patients. I am so pleased to have found a knowledgeable doctor who has been clear and direct about what my procedure entailed, the surgical outcomes and complications but more importantly for his outstanding surgical skills.

I had to see Dr Digesu a few times when my own doctor was on leave & he is amazing! I was so happy to know that Dr Digesu is a sub-specialist in childbirth trauma. He is so knowledgeable & thorough even though I am not his patient. He ended up delivering our second baby since my doctor was unavailable. I had a smooth vaginal delivery with no tears and no lacerations. I highly recommend him. Best doctor I have come across.

Dr. Digesu is simply great. I went through a few different obstetricians before I stuck with him. I asked him to deliver my first and only baby via c-section as I was too scared of damaging my pelvic floor, being incontinent and/or suffering from vaginal laxity and prolapse. I am so grateful to Dr Digesu for having listened to me, respected my decision of having a c-section and for the amazing job he did. I can barely see the tiny scar! Five stars for me too.

Dr. Digesu is the best gynaecologist I have seen. I've had issues for years and have seen several doctors in the past in view of my prolapse and recurrent urine infections. Dr. Digesu was the first to really listen, acknowledge my issues and offer reasonable solutions. I am now almost 4 months post prolapse surgery and I am so thankful to finally be heard and to be on the road to recovery. I am now also infection free!!!

Dr Digesu is the best! I trust him 100%. I could not imagine I would be so comfortable with a male obstetrician. He walks you through every steps during your pregnancy. He is very caring. I highly recommend him.

Dr Digesu is the only obstetrician I trust as well as the only one I would let look after my pregnancy and deliver my baby. In the past I met several (both male and female) obstetricians who barely listened to me and to my concerns. Dr Digesu’s appointment never last 15 minutes like the previous obstetricians I met. Dr Digesu is such a passionate and caring doctor who really love what he does and really care of his patients and babies. At the beginning I was surprised reading only positive comments about Dr Digesu but both me and my husband decided to book an initial consultation with him. Well it was an easy decision for us. Dr Digesu looked after my first pregnancy and delivered our 3.1kg baby. The labour lasted 6 hours. I had an epidural when I was 3 cm dilated and had vaginal birth with no tears and no episiotomy cut! We all went home the following day. We are thankful to Dr Digesu’s obstetrics skills as well as for taking such an amazing care of me and our baby. We will never forget what Dr Digesu did for us. It was an amazing unforgettable journey and it would not have been the same without his guidance and reassurance! Thank you Dr Alex.
