I just wanted to thank you very much for the Rezum operation you performed on me in December. All has gone very well since it's good to get regular good nights sleep again. Thank you also for taking the time to speak to me after the operation. My experiences with the nurses during the aftercare and removal of the catheter were very pleasant and much appreciated.

I had been in considerable pain and discomfort and was diagnosed with a kidney stone. I am in my late 70's and was very nervous of any surgery. However the stone would not budge and I was advised it needed to be removed. I had an appointment with Mr El Husseiny and he immediately made me feel at ease and explained the whole procedure to myself and my husband. On the day of the surgery, once again Mr El Husseiny explained everything to me and I was very confident all would go well. After the operation, he came to see me and all was well and I was allowed home later the same day. At all times, Mr El Husseiny acted in a very professional manner, but was also very reassuring and treated me with care and concern. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who needs his medical expertise.

Mr El-Husseiny, is a kind, understandable, caring surgeon who handles consultation and the complete urological procedure with delicacy and tact, ( in what is an embarassing subject), with sublime grace. All went well and sadly, I do not expect to meet him again but have recommended his expertise to a friend.
