    I consulted Mr Ramus last September for repair surgery following the diagnosis of recurrence from an earlier hernia operation done elsewhere. I found Mr Ramus to be courteous, approachable and highly professional during all my appointments. The operation itself went extremely well using keyhole surgery and subsequently I have happily experienced no problems at all. I now have scarcely any external traces at all of the operation and have been enjoying full mobility with no discomfort whatsoever. I am extremely grateful to Mr Ramus for his excellent surgical work.

    James Ramus is a very skilled surgeon, both in laparoscopic, robotic and open surgical procedures. He has considerable expertise in weight loss surgery, and wide experience in many weight loss procedures. He provides excellent care for his patients and is very popular with patients and colleagues alike. I would be very happy to recommend him to any patient requiring weight loss surgery, hernia repair, gallbladder surgery or treatment for acid reflux.
