    special interest in Oesophagus and Stomach cancer, Gastroesophageal Reflux
    Disease, Hiatus Hernia, Bariatric surgery, Gall Stones and keyhole Hernia

    very pleased that I have thousands of happy patients who I have had the privilege
    to treat over the years.

    Professor Akhtar checked my hernia again before operation as several months had passed since he saw me last year. I had inguinal hernia only on one side and wanted to repair just that. He suggested to repair hernia on the both sides of my body as other side is weak as well. That way I would avoid to come for another operation to repair that side next year. I have agreed. Professor Akhtar had visited me after operation to check how i am doing. Three weeks after operation I had consultation with professor Akhtar and he was very pleased with my recovery and results of the operation.

    Gave a good explanation of what to expect with the surgery, and how to manage the condition in the period up to surgery. Very brief interaction on the day of the surgery, and seemed a little rushed then, but was very happy to take his time and explain everything I asked during both the pre-op and post-op sessions. The surgery went very well, with no problems or issues (it was described to me as 'boring' - which is definitely a good thing!). Overall, a very good experience and I am very grateful to him.

    Professor Akhtar has made my experience of surgery as good as I could of hoped for. I find the whole concept of surgery terrifying and at the pre op appointment he gave me just enough information so I knew what to expect but allowed me to ask questions if I wanted to know more - which I personally didn’t. On the day of surgery he was incredibly reassuring, he could sense I was extremely anxious and ensured I was well looked after to calm my nerves. The surgery has been a success, and I’m healing well. I’m so happy that I went with Professor Akhtar and would highly recommend.
