I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma just before Christmas and referred to Mr De’Liguori clinic a few weeks later. Despite the tumour being large and in a tricky location, Mr De’Liguori said that he would perform a resection of my liver and within a few weeks the surgery was performed. At every step Mr De’Liguori has explained everything to me extremely clearly and I have no doubt that he literally saved my life! He even offered to perform the surgery before Christmas at a cost to his personal life which shows that he goes above and beyond many others. Following a worrying period where it was thought that my wound was infected, he even pulled me out of A&E and inspected it himself. All my friends and family are extremely grateful to this amazing surgeon and thanks to him, I am now in the best possible place to face the next phase of treatment on my road to recovery.
Hi I was very pleased with my operation and the speed from meeting with my doctor to my appointment with the surgeon. Very organised from start to finish.
From our first meeting for a consultation, Mr Nicola De'Liguori Carino showed me, by his manner and expertise, his undeniable ability to help me and I immediately felt confidence in every way. This was followed by surgery which once again was confirmation of my initial feelings. He is, to me, nothing short of a genius in his field. I will be forever grateful.
Very impressed with this doctor,made me feel at ease ,was very polite and fully explained what was happening with my operation.He performed my operation himself,and afterwards came personally and explained how things went ,to which i was very pleased.After a month had passed i had a follow up appointment with Mr Carino and again he was very polite and pleasant,explaining how i was doing and what things to do next.I would definately recommend him and his team who did great work and aftercare.
Hernia op performed quickly and competently.
On initial consultation the doctor took time to listen to my concerns, he then performed a comprehensive examination. He then explained the benefits and risks involved and the types of surgery available and also the option of no surgery. At no time did I feel under pressure to take a particular option. Following my operation Mr De' Liguori Carino visited my room prior to my discharge to explain how he thought the operation had gone and to explain what I should do in following my discharge and how to contact him is I had any concerns. I would happily recommend this doctor.
Mr Nicola de Liguori Carino MD came highly recommended by a family friend. Living in Yorkshire we decided we would travel the extra miles and we have been delighted with every aspect of Mr de Liguori's care. At the initial consultation my husband and I were both very apprehensive as I had been diagnosed with a large liver cyst and ?? gallstones. Through Mr de liguori's experience and expertise he left us feeling positive about the situation after our first consultation. Tests were quickly put into place and procedures were all fully explained consultations never hurried and always asked if we had any questions ourselves. Surgery followed with a Cholecystectomy and a resection of the liver cyst. What I found amazing was the fact I have only two very small incisions so neat it's unbelievable. Mr de Liguori I would highly recommend to anyone in every aspect of his care he is a gentleman and true professional.
I am a 79 year old man ,and I have just had my gall bladder removed in dec 2018, my experience was excellent, everything was explained to me very clearly , the operation procedure, the risks and the after care and at my age going into hospital can be a risky and scary time , Mr De’Leguori and his team really looked after me . I had no infection after surgery and a very neat scar , and if I needed surgery again I would look no further as to be in the very capable hands of Mr De’ Ligouri a true gentleman .. thankyou for looking after me , to you and your whole team
I can truly say that my experience as a patient of Mr De' Liguori Carino (hereafter LC)and his team, especially Sister Sharan Ingram (hereafter SI), has been so positive that it has restored my faith in the NHS. I was seen quickly, got a firm date for both operations (March 2017 and November 2018) and received clear and unpatronizing, explanations. Although I knew that my condition was serious, any interaction I have had with either LC or SI has unfailingly left me feeling more positive. All in all, I am very grateful to all those who have looked after me.
Dr Nicola de`Liguori Carino not only has an excellent name but his standards are surpassed by none. From day 1 when i went to visit him about my inguinal hernia he made me feel reassured about my situation and also relaxed as i was stressed as to the extent of my problem. He told me it would be a simple operation and booked me in straight away announcing to me he would be performing the operation himself. This put me at ease instantly as i felt then that i didn`t need to explain my situation to another consultant and then be referred again to a junior doctor who would be just reading my case notes. Im sure the junior Dr would of course of been adequate but the personal touch that Mr Carino put on the matter just made me feel much more relaxed. The operation went really well and as promised Mr Carino performed the operation himself instantly putting me at ease. His follow up care was also of a high standard and he put to rest any concerns i may of had. In short i would well and truly recommend him to all everyone as his standard of care and consideration was top notch.
Nicola is very pleasant to deal with he assessed my problem (umbilical hernia) and explained the options available and recommended that it be dealt with rather than hope it get worse. He explained what was involved and listened to my concerns regarding my condition and we booked in to have the operation. An hour after I arrived home he rang me to apologise that he was in USA on that date so we moved it post Xmas. I liked the fact he called to apologise rather than just passing it on to his secretary. He wrote to my GP explaining what was going to happen cc was sent to my home. On the day of the operation he again ran through the details of what was to be done and did it as explained. Once I was awake he gave me an update and set a follow up 2 weeks later. After 2 weeks I went and was concerned that the hernia had popped out but he allayed those fears explaining it was purely a hematoma. A final follow-up was set for 5 weeks later where everything was fine. He again wrote to my GP discharging me. Throughout he has been polite, informative and professional I would definitely recommend him to friends and colleagues.
Mr Nicola de'Liguori Carino recently looked after me when I had gallbladder problems. At the first consultation he listened very carefully to what I said without any interruption or talking over me, which I think is important. He diagnosed the issue and treated me very quickly by removing my gallbladder. I am now fully recovered from the operation which was just a couple of months ago. His manner is very caring and compassionate, he explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions in terms I could understand. I can highly recommend him.
Mr de Liguori has been extremely thorough when diagnosing my recurrent hernia. His Dr to Patient manner is excellent and he is very caring. He explains everything in detail. My initial procedure did not go to plan but this was not as a result of the surgery Mr de Liguori completed, it ended up more complicated than we first anticipated. I was very happy with the care given and am returning for follow up op within the next few weeks. I would recommend Mr de Ligouri
I would like to recommend dr liguori for everyone he's highly qualified surgeon in manchester and very nice guy may god bless him
My wife has pancreatic cancer and she has been receiving chemotherapy for the past 20 months.We wish to explore alternative or addition treatments and thanks to Pancreatic Cancer UK we contacted surgeon Mr Nicolas to explore the possibility of Irreversible Electroporation IRE also known as Nanoknife being pursued.Throughout the referral process Mr Nicola responded personally in providing clear explantations. Unfortunately following indepth explorations it was concluded that my wife's particular condition was not suited to the IRE treatment option.Nevertheless we wouldnt hesitate to recommend Mr Nicola as a very informed IRE keyhole surgery resource together with a very caring and approach able manner.
Swift. Caring. Understanding. Experienced, dedicated,trustworthy,this man is at the top of the game. Tells how it is. Works long and hard at looking after us all. I recommend you have him on your side in times of need. We thank you sir for your skills and dedication.
I first met Mr de'Ligouri prior to having surgery to remove part of my pancreas. He was accompanied by Sharan (HPB nurse) and together they explained the whole procedure and what would happen following the surgery. They welcomed questions from my family and myself and left no stone unturned. On the day of the operation my husband received a phone call from Mr de'Ligouri following the surgery to explain what he had done. I felt confident to be having surgery under the care of Mr de'Liguouri and his team and would not hesitate to recommend them. Although it is early days it seems as though he has resolved a problem which has been affecting my life for a very long time, although I didn't realise just how much. The words "thank you" don't seem enough for someone who has been instrumental in giving me my life back, but a heartfelt "thank you" from myself and my family.
I was referred to Mr de'Liguori by Dr Reggie George from the BMI Highfield Hospital. I had quite a lot of gallstones which meant my gallbladder needed to be removed, sooner rather than later!
Mr de'Liguori is a lovely man that listened to my concerns and reassured me.
The operation was done via keyhole surgery, which meant four incisions in the abdomen. I was very impressed with the neat, minimal scarring from the surgery.
I am still in the healing process with some tenderness around the surgical area. However, i am confident the procedure was a success and i do feel so much better for having the surgery.
I would like to thank Mr de'Liguori for the speed in which he had me in surgery and also the friendly, relaxed approach he takes, which made me feel more at ease about the whole procedure.
Several weeks ago I had an operation at Highfield Hospital to repair an umbilical hernia. It was a large hernia but the end result was brilliant. The surgeon was Mr. Nicola de Liguori Carino who I would highly recommend. He is not only very competent but very caring. Thank you for doing such a great job!
i can't praise this doctor enough he is very caring and listens to you. he went above and beyond the call of duty for me.he is a brilliant doctor and i owe my life to him
Thank you very much Mr De Liguori Carino
I have nothing but praise for Mr De'Liguori and his team for the care I received before, during and after my liver resection surgery in October.
Procedures were explained clearly, including all risks and possible complications during the operation and my questions and concerns following the surgery were addressed.
I had surgery for the removal of a tumour in my sigmoid colon some years ago and since then I have had regular checks. Unfortunately the surgeon by whom I had been cared for suddenly became unavailable and I was transferred to Mr Nicola de' Liguori Carino. This was something of a concern as I had been very happy with his predecessor for several years. I need not have worried for on meeting Mr de' Liguori for the first time I was impressed by his professionalism and friendly manner. Over several consultations he always took the time to explain, in simple, laymen's language any concerns I had. He was totally reassuring and had the rare quality of making my wife and myself feel at ease. He is totally approachable and a very pleasant gentleman with whom to discuss any health matters. He has time for his patients!
I would enthusiastically recommend him to any friend or family member who has health concerns. I am sure that he will rightly be regarded as one of Britain's top surgeons.
Thank you Mr de' Ligouri.
From my first consultation I was really impressed with Mr de'Liguori Carino. I found that he was willing to listen to the issues I was experiencing and acted without delay. From the first appointment to the post operative consultation Mr de' Liguori Carino gave excellent care and advice. I found him easy to talk to without any pressure to hurry. Not all consultants show understanding and empathy with their patients but Mr de' Liguori Carino did. A great consultant who is very personable.
I think he must also possess excellent organisational skills too as the whole time I was under his care, all correspondence and appointments were very prompt.
I completely trusted him with my operation and felt in safe hands at all times. Hopefully he will be able to complete my 2nd operation as I think he understands how this issue has affected me for nearly 2 years. It is scary undergoing surgery so having someone you trust like Mr de' Liguori Carino makes the whole process easier.
I feel very lucky to have been under his care and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to others.
Very professional doctor, gave me a clear and precise understanding of how my procedure was going to go.
It was my 2nd liver resection within 10 months. Nicola remembered me and put me at ease immediately. Carefully explained procedure and I felt reassured the operation would be a success. Op completed without complications. Post op care excellent. Saw me every day and even saw me when not working. A true proffessional with a caring and personal approach. Saved me twice.....cannot thank him enough. Forever grateful.
I have recently had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) under the care of Mr Nicola de’Liguori Carino.
At the initial consultation I was extremely worried and nervous with many questions. Mr de’Liguori Carino listened attentively and was professional, polite, calm, patient and kind. He knowledgeably explained the medical implications of the operation and answered my questions so that I fully understood the situation.
On each subsequent occasion, in addition to his previously-mentioned attributes, I found him to be very pleasant, caring and reassuring - all of which inspired a great deal of confidence in him.
Having read other reviews, I would wholeheartedly endorse the positive comments given by other reviewers.
Thank you Mr de’Liguori Carino - you are certainly making a positive difference to the health of many patients at a challenging time in their lives. Long may you continue your skilful, excellent work.
From my very first appointment with Mr Deliguori till my last appointment his support, reassurance and care was the best I could have hoped for. My illness was a very scary experience and the operation I had to entail was made easier to deal with due to the care I received. The lead up to my operation and following my operation I was looked after continuously and consistently, this was face to face and over the telephone by Mr Deliguori and his excellent staff. He was amazing and I cannot thank him enough for the excellent care and support. He was always thorough and I felt confident to be in his care at a very scary time of my life. Even
today he is only a call away. Brilliant consultant he is. I personally cannot think of anything I could criticise. Even on the morning of my operation he personally came to take me to theatre and reassured me about any questions I had as did a member of his team the night previous to the operation, then came to check on me before he went home. These little things make such a difference during worrying times
Excellent with after care after my Whipple operation which was carried out in 2015.
My time under Dr De'Liguria Carino was amazing the care and treatment I received was first class I felt really at ease with the doctor and his team and can't thank them enough for all their great work Brilliant surgeon and a lovely caring man. Thank you for your help.
I have only met Mr De Ligouri on two occcasions and have never felt that he was fully aware of my history and felt that he did not take the time to know me or my wife
I was under the care of Mr De'Ligouri Carino in March of 2018. I met with him prior to my surgery along with my family and he explained fully what he was intending to do, how he would proceed if this wasn't possible and expected outcomes of the surgery.
I have difficulty in finding fault in the standard of care given. He was professional, I had confidence in his clinical skills and he was caring and compassionate.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
i can only say that whilst in your care, yourself and all your team treated me with the upmost respect and care. I felt absolutley at ease and had no worries about the procedure i was about to undertake Thank you all
Provided clear prognosis and explained why I needed surgery. Followed by excellent surgery with no side effects. Wounds healed very well and quickly. Very professional and personable though every stage, including follow up. Would strongly recommend.
I had complete confidence from my first meeting with Mr De'Liguori he made me feel reassured & at ease. I was grateful for the time he spent explaining my diagnosis & surgical procedure.
I have been under your care since 2011. I have always been shown respect and have been told things in a manner I understand . I regard you as my friend. I trust you 100% in any operation or advice you give me. Thank you for all your support and long may our friendship continue.
I found he put me at ease and calming. He was confident and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions fully.
Mr De'Liguori Carino has been extremely kind and informative to my husband during his consultation and post operative review of Nano knife surgery. He gave us the opportunity to ask questions and was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure. Mr Liguori also ensures excellent post operative care of his patients and was not dismissive in any way of our concerns. He has spoken over the phone to us personally on a couple of occasions and his care is very individual. Mr Liguori, despite a language barrier, in some instances. has a wonderful sense of humour and an excellent rapport. It is very obvious that he has an excellent knowledge of the Nano knife procedure which is very enlightening in Britain. We cannot thank him enough for his dedication and patience and he always adopts a very positive attitude which is enlightening to patients with pancreatic cancer. Some oncologists are very dismissive of survival and this in turn creates an immediate negativity for the patient. We are aware of statistics but Mr Liguori creates a 'safe 'consultation without falsifying any abnormalities, It is always re-assuring to see him. We cannot thank him enough for his care.
I have found in all my dealings with Mr Nicola De’Liguori Carino that he is professional yet friendly. He was caring to the extent of staying in touch with my nurses about my progress even whilst away on his own holiday. I experienced a serious issue whitch was no fault of his yet he remained open and honest in discussion of it , and was generous in his praise for my wife who looked after me at home.
The Treatment I have received from Dr De'Liguori Carino has been excellent. I was kept informed at all times with the care I have received I feel like I was wrapped up in cotton wool. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done
Very satisfied with all aspects of my treatment before, during and after the procedure to deal with my double hernia. Many thanks
There is no way that Mr delegory can Improve the level of care and knowledge were the best available, I felt very confident in Dr delegory, he explained everything well and has alot of patience for all me questions (loads of them). I was extremely impressed from beginning to end! Only praise for a wonderful caring fabulous Dr! Thank you thank you!
