“I felt immediately confident and at ease from the first meeting with Mr Tamer El-Husseiny. He listened carefully and sympathetically to my concerns and hopes and explained precisely the reasons he suggested a specific operation. it all made sense to me. The results of the HOLEP procedure is entirely satisfactory and even better than I had expected it to be.“

    I did research before the difficult task of choosing a urologist. Mr Tamer El-Husseiny specialises in the various operations I thought would be beneficial to me and meeting him for the first time I felt immediately at ease and confident I would get the best treatment. His explanations about the various possible operations were clear, direct, and given in an utterly professional manner, and his general demeanour made me feel relaxed and at ease at a time of great anxiety. Guided by him I came to the right conclusion as what operation would be best for me. He also acted swiftly upon my desire to have the operation as soon as possible, for which I am hugely grateful.

    My initial consultation with Mr T. El-Husseiny was informative, professional and I felt at ease and he gave me the confidence to go ahead with the procedure. Information and communication provided by his personal assistant was excellent. I was also impressed with the time line within which the procedure was performed and with daily post operative monitoring visits at hospital. I have no hesitation in recommending his services for urology symptoms.

    Kidney Stones
    I had been in considerable pain and discomfort and was diagnosed with a kidney stone. I am in my late 70's and was very nervous of any surgery. However the stone would not budge and I was advised it needed to be removed. I had an appointment with Mr El Husseiny and he immediately made me feel at ease and explained the whole procedure to myself and my husband. On the day of the surgery, once again Mr El Husseiny explained everything to me and I was very confident all would go well. After the operation, he came to see me and all was well and I was allowed home later the same day. At all times, Mr El Husseiny acted in a very professional manner, but was also very reassuring and treated me with care and concern. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who needs his medical expertise.
