Miss Eleni Maratos
29th January 2019
I had an L4/L5 Discectomy, at Kings with Ms Maratos and I cannot rate her highly enough. It was a severe herniation and she made me aware of all the risks and possible complications. It was 4 hours of surgery but it was 100% successful. I took her advice rather than other surgeons advice and have been walking, 3 days post surgery, a minimum of 6 miles a day every day wind or rain. She advised me to be active since it helps healing. She is right; all leg pain has gone and I only have slight numbness in my foot which is also reducing. She also managed to avoid any dural tears with me.
I know some surgery can be difficult and go badly but I know Ms Maratos would treat all patients to the best of her considerable ability.
I was offered a surgeon who worked in the private sector with numerous acolades and letters after his name but I chose Ms Maratos and would again.
I really cannot rate her highly enough.
The NHS and its patients are exceptionally fortunate to have Ms Maratos on its payroll.
