    I am SO happy that I found Professor Ghaem-Maghami. She turned what seemed to be a very intimidating diagnosis into a quite smooth (under the circumstances!) experience from start to finish. She treated me like an individual, not just another patient on a long list. Everything was explained in a calm and reassuring way. I had to have a radical hysterectomy and I was worried that the surgery would fundamentally change my life, but in fact I'm 3 weeks into recovery and pretty much back to normal! She did everything she could to keep the surgery keyhole as apposed to an abdominal cut, which was an integral part of my quick recovery. I was kept informed throughout by Professor Maghami and her lovely colleague Sue by phone & email - and in person post surgery. All of my concerns and worries were addressed. I spent a lot of time researching who to have my treatment with. Ideally I wanted a woman, who I feel can understand the concerns I had about treatment and recovery in a way that a male practitioner simply couldn't. I had consultation with a surgeon who told me I was being ridiculous for feeling stressed about not being able to continue taking hormone therapy post surgery (It turns out I CAN continue hormone therapy) but Prof Maghami took a more measured approach to this aspect of my treatment, which calmed me down significantly. If you are looking for someone for treatment, please don't hesitate to have a consultation with Prof Maghami.
