“I am extremely grateful to Mr Paul Cathcart for the care that he has provided in my prostatectomy procedure journey. Pre-op he fully explained the procedure and the expected outcome. I am pleased to say that the outcome for myself has been the best possible with minimal post-op discomfort and a rapid recovery. In his post-op consultation after the catheter removal he fully explained the lab results offering advice and expectations going forward. The meetings with Paul are always very informative and relaxed as is his friendly, welcoming manner. His forecast that “you will be back on the golf course within a month” was only in error in that I don’t play golf. I am in no doubt that my rapid post-op recovery is due to Paul’s surgical skills. Credit and thanks is also due for the exceptional care provided by the nursing team at the King Edward VII Hospital both during the two day hospital stay and in post-op out-patient visits, with a special thanks to Michael Martin for his thorough training sessions. “
