My son (16) saw Mr El-Husseiny on a number of occasions over the summer in connection with a hydrocele. Mr El-Husseiny was able to operate on the hydrocele and my son is very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Mr El-Husseiny. He was very reassuring towards my son and I whenever we met him - he took the time to carefully explain the surgery and answered any queries. He was very professional in his manner and was able to quickly resolve this issue for my son.

I feel fortunate to have come under the care of Mr El-Husseiny and his wonderful PA Rosie whilst suffering from a troublesome kidney stone. At each stage everything has been done with the utmost care and attention but also with a real sense of urgency and concern. I would recommend Mr El-Husseiny unconditionally and without hesitation.

I received a thorough and most informative initial consultation and examination, with clear, reasoned advice on my condition and the options for the future. I chose the HoLEP procedure, which was carried out the following week and involved a two-night hospital stay. The procedure went very smoothly and, in my case, has been completely without post-operative pain. I have since seen Mr El-Husseiny for a follow-up consultation and flow and voiding tests and have now been discharged. I would recommend Mr El-Hosseiny without reservation. We immediately established an excellent rapport and communications, via his outstanding PA, were always timely and comprehensive. Most importantly, Mr El-Hosseiny's skill and care have completely resolved the issue which brought us into contact and I am happy to say that my feeling of well-being is increasing daily!

Mr. Husseiny is one of the best consultants that I have ever met. He is so nice and such an expert in his field that can't be explained in words. We visited him for my wife's kidney treatment, initially, we thought it was a simple procedure but turned out to be a complex one. Many many thanks to Mr Husseiny who handled everything in such an exceptional way that everything ended very well and exactly as expected. My wife is doing perfectly fine now and I would like to highlight one special thing about Mr Husseiny that whenever you meet him he will give you a sense of calmness, will explain you everything in detail as much as by drawing things on paper, showing scans etc. which make a huge difference. We shall always be thankful to him for all the treatments and care for my wife. If ever anyone needs to see a urologist in London, he is your man.

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.
