Extremely caring and very professional, I couldn't rate him highly enough. My Gallbladder was seriously infected, but he still managed to remove it using the key hole procedure, to which I am very grateful.
Prof Sheen was my consultant at the Alexandra Cheadle where I had an operation for a double hernia.The operation was performed by keyhole and the outcome in every respect was extremely successful. I was virtually pain free in 3days,driving in two weeks and able to cycle on a M/C to Lpool charity run in 5weeks.At 72years of age I can only put the result down to Professor Sheens brilliance as a surgeon.In addition to his qualities as a surgeon I found him easy to talk to,friendly and at all times professional. I would recommend him unreservedly for any operation that he specialises in.
On the Friday 8th April 2016 I underwent a TEP procedure for bi lateral inguinal herniae which was performed by Mr Sheen. From the initial consultation I was put completely at ease and totally informed. All my questions and concerns were answered honestly and accurately in a way that made me feel I was speaking to a real friend. I went to theatre about 11.30 and was back in my room by around 13.30. Everything went very well with no pain, only what I would call mild discomfort. By about 15.30 I was up and about walking and had a meal. By 19.30 I was ready to be collected go home. I was at home in my own bed by 22.00, climbing stairs was not a problem and I slept very well. Saturday I walked short distances but quite regularly and each day did a little more. By Thursday I could drive the car without discomfort and after that things got back to normal very quickly. I phased my return to work with odd short days during the second week and back to work full time after three weeks. I am so pleased with the outcome, I could not have asked or wished for a better recovery. I cannot express in these few short words just how grateful I am to Mr Sheen, Paul Foster and the rest of the team that looked after me so well. I know each person is unique and each condition may be different but my advice is choose well (I know I did) and follow all advice given to the letter, including that in the post op care leaflet. Thanks Again
Professional, reassuring, care with practical advice both pre and post op. Had gallbladder removed. Mr Sheen provided an excellent advice sheet for post op care and recovery, phased on what to expect and do on a week by week basis. My wounds healed quickly and will leave minimal scarring. I didn't need any painkillers within 24 hours of my operation, any pain was cope-able without the need for drugs although 48-72 hours post op were the most uncomfortable days. I felt perfectly well enough to start driving 2 weeks after the operation and had no discomfort at all. I went back to work after 3 weeks as I did experience tiredness as the body healed itself. Main advice, everyone is different, listen to your body and give it time to heal and recover. Follow the advice sheet and you will be fine. I would recommend Mr Sheen.
