I was diagnosed with Gleason 3 + 3 prostate cancer back in early 2016. Mr Vasdev informed me about the options at that time and I had both biopsies and MRI scans. I decided to continue with regular reviews punctuated by periodic PSA tests. The tests showed a gradually rising trend and it was agreed that eventually I would need to decide on a course of active treatment, whether radiotherapy, braccial seed treatment or a full prostatectomy. Time passed and the rate of change was steady until last year (2018) when it began to accelerate and Mr Vasdev counselled that a decision to go for treatment was now important. I decided to go ahead with a radical prostatectomy and was operated on in March 2019. It went well and I am only sorry that I didn't elect to have the operation earlier. It is a great relief to know that the source of the cancer has been removed. The quality of life after 2 months is better than I had feared. Obviously, one person's experience is not indicative for everyone, but after two months it is reassuring to have few urinary problems. There is a danger of extensive treatment should the cancer spread outside the prostate itself and in my case it was very close to the boundary. I am very happy to know that the prostate was removed successfully and am very happy to recommend Mr Vasdev for his excellent advice and for conducting the operation. He has been highly professional and helpful throughout the whole process and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Couldn’t be happier with my treatment with Mr Vasdev. He clearly knows his field, explains things very well. I was given very well explained options to guide my treatment at various stages and was extremely happy with the outcome. My recovery was very easy. Overall I was very happy with my treatment, felt very reassured with Mr Vasdev’s diagnosis.

Having being diagnosed with prostate cancer, I was understandably very concerned about how I would be treated, and what side effects I may be left with following my surgery. I was referred to Mr Vasdev, who immediately put my mind at rest and gave me total confidence in his commitment to delivering the best possible outcome from my procedure. Throughout my treatment I have found Mr Vasdev to be very professional, extremely thorough and a very personable physician. He clearly takes great pride in his work and achievements, and always with the patient as his number 1 priority. I am extremely grateful that he has been my consultant and for the exceptional work he and his team have done to successfully remove the cancer, and see me through this challenging time.

From the initial consultation and all the way through my operation and aftercare, Mr Vasdev has personally ensured that I have been kept informed of processes and procedures that I would encounter. His pleasant manner towards not just me but to the members of his team was very reassuring and left me with an extremely confident feeling about my treatment. I am amazed at how well and quickly my recovery has been going, and most of that is down to the skills and expertise of Mr Vasdev (with a little bit of input from me I might add!) I can not thank Mr Vasdev enough for all he has done for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone who may require Urology treatment.

Mr Vasdev is an excellent consultant and I am pleased to say that my problems have all been resolved. I would also like to mention Dr Amit Patel who carried out the procedure and totally put me at ease and his follow up to ensure that I was feeling ok and had no side effects. I would totally recommend Dr Vasdev and Dr Patel to other patients who have similar symptoms to mine.

I will be forever grateful to Mr Vasdev for giving me the chance of a healthy future. I was diagnosed with bladder Cancer in May and was feeling rushed to agree to a treatment plan without fully understanding the outcome. Iwas advised to seek a second opinion with Mr Vasdev ( this proved to be the best decision I have ever made. At our first meeting He calmed my fears and I was impressed by His friendly,easy manner. He explained some of the advantages of robotic surgery should I opt for removal of bladder. He then arranged for more detailed investigative tests before we agreed the best treatment for my circumstances. I now felt better informed and in control. Mr Vasdev carried out my surgery robotically with amazing skill. He is supported by a fantastic team and I knew I was in the best hands possible. I cannot speak highly enough Him on every front. Mr Vasdev is a highly motivated knolwledgable Surgeon with total patient focus. and is amazingly humble.

There arn’t enough stars here to accurately represent my opinion of Mr Vasdev. His skill, efficiency, caring and consideration are beyond compare. I had complete confidence in him while I was in hospital and in the three years since. His care went beyond the call of duty and I firmly bilieve that I wouldn’t be here now if I hadn’t found him. Words cannot express my gratitude to him.

I have been under the care of Mr Nikhil Vasdev for six months. He is a first class urologist and he has given me exceptional support to work through my urology problems. He has always been available when I have had problems, always friendly and professional and shews interest in my progress.

My GP referred me to see a consultant because he suspected that I may have prostate cancer. Upon seeing Mr Vasdev, he promptly arranged for an MRI scan to be undertaken, followed by a bone scan. Once he had obtained the results, he explained the severity of my condition, and the options available to me. I then decided to undertake a robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy with wide local excision plus pelvic lymph node dissection. I voiced my concerns about any delays, and he personally brought forward my operation after becoming aware of a cancellation. He successfully performed the surgery to a very high standard, resulting in negative margins and ultimately saving my life. My recovery was quick thanks to his skill in the operating theatre and I returned to work after only one month (the NHS leaflets suggested a minimum of 3 months). Since then, Mr Vasdev has seen me on a regular basis to monitor my progress and advise me accordingly. I can honestly say that I have never met anyone who is so professional, so hard working and so skilled at his job. He is a credit to the NHS, and I would like to thank him on behalf of myself and my children for everything that he does.

Mr Vasdev carried out my prostatectomy I believe with great skill which has resulted in retention of my continence and other functions. He has shown sincerity in the post operative period and has continued to explain the on-going checks that are necessary. He has been able to assure me on my re-rehabilitation which has, I understand, proceeded extremely quickly, which I am sure is a function of his skill. I would always recommend him as a Surgeon.

Mr Vasdev inspired confidence from the outset. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable, as well as being courteous and considerate in his manner. Information was given clearly and issues explained in understandable terms. Mr Vasdev invited questions and ensured these were answered promptly and accurately, including calling by telephone to answer emailed questions. Mr Vasdev ensured that there were no unnecessary delays in my treatment. He created time in his busy schedule to allow an initial impromptu consultation with me, within the hour of an issue being identified by a colleague. He carried out surgery within a very short period following this, and his swift action has in all likelihood saved my life. The surgery carried out by Mr Vasdev was successful, and without any issues. He followed this up by ensuring that any questions or concerns I had were addressed completely. I would not hesitate to give Mr Vasdev the highest recommendation possible.

I have been so impressed with the fantastic service I have received. Mr Vasdev arranged an appointment at very short notice due to my holiday.

I consider myself very fortunate indeed to have been referred to Mr Vasdev following the unsuccessful full removal of a tumour from my bladder. I have had my bladder and a kidney removed by Mr Vasdev and a neobladder installed. From the very first time we met, Mr Vasdev was excellent at ensuring that I fully understood all my options. He has always been very generous with his time making sure I could ask any and all questions for clarification or concern. What could not be foreseen was exactly how my body might react to (post) surgery but Mr Vazdev and his team managed each of these challenges very, very professionally and I was always confident of a positive outcome. I can not recommend Mr Vasdev enough!

I do not believe I would be where I am now, or as well as I am now, without the dedication and expertise of Mr Vasdev and his Team. My procedure, after care and followups, communication with me and the empathy shown by Nik, his colleagues, nurses and the whole Lister Team was faultless. We deify sports and TV personalities, but the truly exceptional people in this world, like Nik, go largely unrecognised.

I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in August 2013 and wasted from then until late February 2014 in the private sector, before coming to Mr Vasdev and the Team at the Lister NHS Hospital, Stevenage. I had a radical cystoprostatectomy, with the formation of an ileal conduit on 29 May 2014. I spent 9 days in hospital and have since made a full recovery from a life-changing procedure. It was totally the right call, as the disease had become high grade. I do not believe I would be where I am now, or as well as I am now, without the dedication and expertise of Mr Vasdev and his Team. My procedure, after care and followups, communication with me and the empathy shown by Nik, his colleagues, nurses and the whole Lister Team was faultless. We deify sports and TV personalities, but the truly exceptional people in this world, like Nik, go largely unrecognised.

The expertise, care and support before, during and after my Robotic Assisted laparoscopic cystectomy and intracorporeal ileal conduit formation, that I have received from Mr Nikhil Vasdev, has been truly exceptional, resulting in a totally successful outcome and which has therefore made the mental and physical lifestyle adjustments that I have had to make much easier to come to terms with. My recovery has been much less traumatic than it may have been had I not had the good fortune to have Mr Vasdev as my consultant surgeon. Mr Vasdev cares very deeply about his patients and has a warm and friendly bedside manner. In my humble opinion, he is one of the finest urologists in the land.
