Felt very comfortable in Dr El-Husseiny's ability as a surgeon. Operation went smoothly and his bedside manner was impeccable. Would highly recommend.


Mr Tamer El-Husseiny is very caring, professional and experienced. I found him extremely knowledgable and his explanations were always clear. He listened carefully and answered my questions thoroughly and attentively. I would highly recommend him.






I am writing to thank you to you and your team for the excellent treatment I received at St Mary's and Charing Cross Hospital for my hydrocele. The diagnosis was spot on. The pre-admission appointment was slick. The surgery went smoothly. I can report that it has healed very well, I had no pain and the cut is hardly noticeable. In short, it looks great, it feels great and it works great. If you were Amazon you'd have badgered me to complete a Satisfaction Survey! You didn't, so I'm writing this to say I am over the moon with your professionalism and the outcome.


I had my Keyhole surgery by Mr. El-Husseiny at Charing Cross Hospital on the 26th of November 2016. I found him to be a good surgeon with a good touch of humanity and understanding. Before the operation he explained in details with diagrams what is involved. At the end of the operation, and after recovery from anaesthesia, I saw his face with a smile and was holding the extracted stones in a bottle saying "all went very well", I thought was very important and re-assuring. Just seen him again for a followup appointment, when he explained to me the long term management of renal stones, which was reinforced with leaflets. He makes you feel comfortable and give you all the time you need to answer all your questions and concerns. I would strongly recommend Mr. Tamer El-Husseiny for all the above genuine, medical, and caring qualities. Thank you Mr. El-Husseiny






Right from the beginning Mr Tamer El-Husseiny,s attitude towards me as a patient showed how much he cares , before and after the surgery. I can never forget , just after the operation , and I was still under a general anaesthetic influence , his reassuring words : " everything went well " I have heard his words and dozed off again. He attended me all the time even on Sunday , when I thought it was his only day to rest and it was even not fair to expect it as I was leaving the hospital on Sunday , but he did just to make sure that I am well and everything else. I had the best treatment and care before and after the surgery and still are. A big Thank You Mr Tamer El-Husseiny.
