“Prof. Cuckow is top expert in his field. He took time to explain the planned surgery and to reassure us before the procedure. The surgery itself was done successfully, as planned. Prof. showed great care, visiting us every day, to check on the progress and was responsive also during night and outside working hours. We highly reccomed prof. Cuckow to other patients.“
