I can not recommend Dr Sarela enough. I was originally booked in with another surgeon at the Nuffield in Leeds for a Gastric Sleeve however this was cancelled a few days before the surgery date due to personal issues. Dr Sarela managed to save the day and committed to performing my surgery for me. He immediately put me at easy and reassured me that the operation would go a head without any other issues. Dr Sarela and his team did an amazing job, making the stay in hospital as comfortable as possible. It has been 14 months since my surgery and I have had no complications and at each visit Dr Sarela has been personable, professional and informative to get the best out of the operation. Thoroughly pleased that I had Dr Sarela as my surgeon :)
I don't normally award five stars but I can't think of anything which didn't go according to plan. I saw Mr Sarela to discuss the choices of treatment for bilateral inguinal hernias: open or keyhole surgery, one at a time or both together. He gave me honest and informed advice about "non-inferiority" of either approach and the different possible complications and recovery times of each. He then offered me day-case keyhole surgery to both sides without undue delay and within a three weeks I was back to full activities frequently forgetting that I ought to be careful not to over-exert myself too soon. I can't think of a reason not to give full marks.
Mr Sarela was extremely personable, he treated me with the upmost kindness and respect. He would be my surgeon of choice again if I needed treatment in the future.
I recently had a hernia operation and was mobile almost immediately. I have no scarring and the pain was minimal. I never took any painkillers. I was back at work after a week and playing badminton within 4 weeks.All the staff were friendly and attentive.
From our first meeting to discuss the operation for hernia repair I had complete confidence in Mr Abeezer Sarela. Subsequently, the operation at the Nuffield Hospital in Leeds was a total success and I have had not further discomfort or pain. In addition to thanking Mr Sarela I would like to express my gratitude to the other medical and nursing staff at the Hospital for their professionalism, skill and care Duncan R Watts
