    I am very happy with the operation that I had done by Mr El-Hussainy. His bedside manner was very good, he gave me several options for treatment and answered all my questions. Postoperative I had limited discomfort that I was warned well in advance. The overall experience was excellent and I would recommend anyone that has similar issues with me to have the treatment with Mr El-Hussain’s.
