I have given 5 stars for each category because I could not fault anything during my treatment. From my first visit to the last everything was fully explained in layman's terms. Mr Shyamalan explained what was wrong said what he was going to do and even took into account that there may be other problems that might require sorting out during the surgical procedure.

I have nothing but praise for Mr Shyamalan. After suffering with Dupuytren's Contracture for many years and seeing two previous consultants who were unable to help I was amazed when Mr Shyamalan said he could straighten my hand with a simple treatment. Frankly I did not believe it at first but after a simple injection of a special drug and a subsequent manipulation of the finger it is totally restored. Unfortunately for Mr Shyamalan and other consultants around the country Mr Shyamalan told me that the drug he used is no longer available from January 2020 as the US supplier has withdrawn it from the UK and Europe. I would strongly support anything that can be done to reverse this decision so others can have the treatment that I was fortunate to receive. For me it is a miracle. Apart from the fantastic treatment I would also like to say Mr Shyamalan is a lovely man. He has an extremely pleasant manner, is extremely knowledgeable, explains everything very clearly and is kind and considerate. I recommend him unreservedly.

Mr. Shyamalan performed the procedure on my hand in a quite, sensitive and caring way. He was efficient and professional. I am delighted with the result which is most successful. If further hand operations or procedures are required I would definitely wish for this surgeon to perform the procedure.
