Mr Pellen removed my gall bladder. I was very apprehensive as two people I know had a bad experiences. One took 8 months to recover after getting an infection. I can honestly say I didn't need my Codine tablets to take for pain after I left the hospital. The scaring was minimal and so was the bruising. I recovered quickly and am now back to work after 2 weeks.

I am on day 3 after my operation on my lap band reconstruction which was done by Mr Pellen a first class surgeon who made me feel at ease from our first meeting. He spent time to explain everything he had done to my band. I have got every faith in Mr Pellen and this lap band working so if any one out there is thinking of getting weight loss surgery, Mr Pellen is the man to go see. He is such a talented gentleman and i cannot thank him enough for giving me a second chance with my band. Regards Chris Warrington

I was puzzled after my hernia op. What happened to the pain? This was a double laparoscopic hernia repair, including one side that turned out to be more taxing than anticipated, so there should at least have been some moderate suffering over the first few days. I waited for it, I looked for it, but it never came. After leaving the hospital armed with the usual opioids, I took two paracetamol, ignored the codeine, and that was it. Nothing was hurting - not even a tiny bit. It seemed almost impossible, and certainly improbable, that the body could undergo cutting and exploring and suturing to that extent and yet leave no legacy of discomfort. But that may be a mark of the skill and finesse with which this gifted and highly experienced surgeon plies his craft (although, as Mr Pellen himself points out, not all procedures can be guaranteed to hurt as little as mine). Subsequent examination has confirmed that the surgery was completely successful and I am very happy with the outcome. Others have spoken of Mr Pellen’s patience in answering questions (and I had plenty), gently allaying unwarranted fears and inspiring well-merited trust. I wholly endorse all those views. For any surgery within Mr Pellen’s purview that I might require in the future, I would unhesitatingly entrust my care to him and I recommend him without reservation. My heartfelt thanks to him and his team for taking such good care of me!
