Mr Aali Sheen
27th April 2023
I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the utterly lovely Professor Aali Sheen. I could not have been in better hands.
I contacted Professor Sheen because he is the UK’s leading surgeon for Abdominal Nerve Cutaneous Entrapment Syndrome, a little known but excruciatingly painful condition that was causing me severe disability and extreme distress.
Professor Sheen was wonderful. He was very open-minded and explained everything clearly. Because my pain was at the very lateral border of the rectus abdominis on either side, after much consideration, we agreed on a posterior and anterior neurectomy. He gave me the time I needed to feel confident that this surgery was the right course of action and that it would yield results. The operation was scheduled very quickly and the care I received on the day was fantastic. When Professor Sheen came to visit me the day after, I was able to tell him that the appalling nerve pain that was preventing me from moving was no longer there. Three weeks later, with two very neat scars healing beautifully, I was able to start physiotherapy. It feels nothing short of miraculous.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Professor Sheen to anyone struggling with ACNES. He is an extremely skilled surgeon and it is no understatement to say that surgery with him has given me my life back.
