I cannot stress how impressed I was with the level of knowledge, transparency and integrity Prof Viswanath showed me throughout the process of having my hernias operated and repaired on. The level of detail and confidence he showed through his clear passion in his field gave me reassurance and confidence that I was going to be ok. His passion and drive is clear to see and the care and drive to help didn't end after the surgery. He was keen to explain the reasoning behind the five hernias I had experienced and gave me great advice for my health and fitness going forward. Although I do not wish to require any treatment in the future, If I was ever in that position I was most definitely wish for Prof Viswanath to once again lead that.

What can I say, superb from start to finish! Professor Viswanath and Doctor Calli both put me at ease, particularly just before and during the operation. The anesthetic team great as well, with me being comfortable all the way through the procedure. Thanks to all the staff. Comfortable now after over 6 weeks since operation.

I was treated with kindness, courtesy and understanding all the way through. I asked if spinal analgesia would be possible and was given one. I had almost no pain at all from the end of the operation and had a completely uneventful recovery, getting back to doing all the things I had done previously. I am extremely grateful for all that was done for me.

Great experience from start to finish with Prof Yirupaiahgari Viswanath. Relatively quick referral and diagnosis. Detailed explanation and information on surgery options and how best to proceed. Operation was undertaken within three months and full recovery made within a month with no complications. Keyhole surgery very neat and has left three very small scars which you can hardly notice. I would like this opportunity to thank Prof Yirupaiahgari Viswanath again and all the staff at the Nuffield Hospital. The quality or service, care and reassurance I received was first class throughout the whole process but in particular the operation day.
