    I am very pleased with my whole experience with Dr Tsitkaris. He has continually provided me with thorough and detailed explanations of my MRI scans and given me reassurance at the appropriate times. Throughout the process Kostas has been very personable and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

    I think Kostas is exactly what I'd hoped for in a consultant. He's friendly and personable, open to direct and easy communication, helps make things super simple but yet can educate on the technicalities. All in all I felt in the best hands and was confident and clear at each point in time.

    Words cannot describe how grateful I am to you. Thank you for listening and taking great care of me. You have a special gift as a surgeon and as a person. I really felt I had no quality of life. Hip replacement, what did I know of this procedure? You were always approachable and precise and explained everything so clearly. To me, you're a magician and a great physician.

    I am writing the review on behalf of my mother. It has been an emotional time for our family following a hip fracture during the Covid lockdown. It is difficult not to write a gushing review; Dr Kostas‘s skill, care and attention to detail is evident in my mothers quick and perfect recovery. He also went out of his way to communicate with us during a time when we could not visit the hospital as much as we had hoped. Our lovely nurse did tell us that we were lucky to have him as our surgeon. Its always a great sign when your team speak so highly of you. Thank you Dr Kostas

    Mr Tsitskaris is an excellent surgeon, communicator and colleague. I have known him for over a decade and every time we interact I am somehow even more impressed with him. In the NHS he is a great leader and process innovator. He was the major driver for change in our hip fracture pathway in East London. He takes tremendous care of his patients with sincerity, integrity and skill. One of the best in his field.
