I have found Mr Jayanthi to be very professional and knowledgeable. I have no problem understanding Mr Jayanthi's explanations covering my procedure. There was no hesitation in delaying my surgery in order to diagnose and treat sleep apnea. He made sure I understood my part in a successful ongoing outcome. Post operatively he has been very supportive and encouraging. Whilst in hospital Mr Jayanthi was again very supportive and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him. My surgery has been life changing and I am very grateful.


I had a gastric bypass done at the end of march 2016 and the service and professionalism I got from mr jayanthi from my first appointment to now has been outstanding . I feel pregnant quiet quickly afterwards which is not recommended but they support from mr jayanthi and his team has been amazing . I can't thank him and his team enough for what they have done for me and how they made it so easy for me to make such and important decision in my life. I would highly recommend mr jayanthi.




Without exaggeration, to me Mr Jayanthi was a life saver and to my family he is their hero. I was diagnosed with a large cancerous GIST, which when on Chemo grew very fast. I desperately needed a Surgeon I had confidence in, and after meeting when in Hospital I made sure he would be the surgeon that would be looking after me. About 8 months ago, with his team he removed an incredible 8.5 litre of GIST with about 60% of my stomach. I have made a miraculous recovery and now have an excellent quality of life. Jon Bacon.


He's a good guy and did a laprascopic triple hernia op for me with no problems so thanks.


Not only is Mr Jayanthi extremely knowledgable and professional, he is compassionate and kind. He takes any concerns very seriously and answers all my questions to my satisfaction.
