Mr Rink operated on me in November 2017 I had a gastric bypass.. since the operation my blood sugars for my type 2 diabetes are finally under control and I’m loosing weight at a steady rate.. thankyou mr Rink you have helped me change my life for the better.
Mr Rink listened and explained everything very clearly and went above and beyond to help me. I required two procedures which Mr Rink carried out together. Mr Rink has improved my life.
Being an inherent coward, I was somewhat sceptical regarding weight loss surgery. From day one, to the actual operation on the 19th October, I found Mr Rink and his staff totally supportive. I realise that this is a monumental decision for any person to make, but when you have the confidence in the entire team it makes this decision so much easier. All the procedures were clearly explained with utmost patience and nothing was too much trouble. I was operated upon in Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and from the time of arrival to day of discharge, the care was exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending this team to any person considering this type of surgery and would like to use this opportunity of conveying my sincere thanks to all concerned.
Mr Rink is an exceptional surgeon at explaining procedures. He makes you feel totally at ease and is always willing to answer any questions you may have. He has completely changed my life for the better and I am eternally grateful for the opportunity the NHS and Mr Rink gave me. He shows great empathy towards his patients and the aftercare is also outstanding. I would recommend Mr Rink & team to anybody considering bariatric surgery
Loved how I was handled. I was a really nervous patient and they made sure I was seen first on the list so no waiting about. So far my pain is manageable, no gas pain and only sore to get up which is normal, I've had an organ removed.
