Mr Ahmed Hamouda. performed a gastric sleeve operation on me on the 11/10/2017. At Nuffield Hospital Tunbridge Wells. I am male 67yrs old English living in Bulgaria. I did a lot off research on gastric surgery. Bulgaria having no surgeons. I reviewed many surgeons and am i glad i picked Mr Hamouda, i travelled to see Mr Hamouda, and had a consultation with him we disgust all options with him, i felt no pressure in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. My weight at that time 121kl. old money 19st 5lb. He explained everything in great detail about the surgery that he would perform on me. and possible complications. The surgery went well 2 nights in the hospital, no pain what so ever, my wife could not believe i had surgery said i look like i have been on holiday. Today being 16/5/2018. my wight is 74kl. 11st 10lb. And now on no blood pressure tablets or beta blockers, i was on 6 tablets a day. I now have so much energy and am enjoying life.
I had a gallbladder operation done by Mr Hamouda. He was absolutely lovely, empathetic, kind, and had the quality that he really listened to me. Although there were some risks which he explained to me, the operation went perfectly. Thank-you Mr Hamouda, and I absolutely recommend him to others.
I had a Gallbladder removal in November 2017. Mr Hamouda & his team were so kind & understanding. It went smoothly & I was in & out. The staff were all lovely from admission to Theatre to recovery to ward. Maidstone Hospital was very clean & truly can't speak highly enough about it. Thank you to Mr Hamouda & his team & all at Maidstone Hospital . You do a great job.
I am a 73 year old man who has never had an operation, so was a little concerned about an operation. I was referred to Mr Hamouda with a inguinal hernia via my GP. Mr Hamouda put me at ease with his friendly manner, answering my concerns honestly. I had the NHS operation on 17th October at Somerfield Hospital, Maidstone. I came round from the anesthtic with no after effects. I followed the hospitals advice, regarding pain control via tablets, for 2 days post operation & have been pain free since then ( now 2 ,weeks since op). The waterproof dressing allowed showering & when replaced after a couple of days, showed very little evidence of weeping. The scar has not weeped since & is healing very well. I was advised not to drive for 2 weeks & no heavy lifting for 6 weeks. I cannot thank Mr Hamouda, the theatre & hospital staff enough & would recommend anyone thinking of this operation, or similar, not to hesitate in having Mr Hamouda as your surgeon Thanks again Mr Reynolds
I had a large hiatus hernia but I did not have the classic signs and symptoms. However I was quite unwell with severe chronic anaemia and a constant feeling of choking. I was always tired and had constant aching joints and cramps. When I was told how bad the HH was I asked about having it repaired. Although I was anxious about the surgery as I was afraid I would have to have it repaired the old way because of previous abdominal surgery. Mr Hamouda was confident he could repair it laparoscopically he talked me through the procedure and put me at ease. He also talked me through the aftercare in detail and explained how important this was. He was able to do the operation keyhole and I was discharged home the following day already feeling so much better. I followed the dietary advice carefully as I knew it was important for the success of the surgery, I am normally a very bad patient and don't follow advice!! The followup care I have received from Mr Hamouda has been excellent and any problems I have had have been investigated and resolved quickly. I have never felt I was making a fuss, I was only ever listened to and reassured. The care I have had from Mr Hamouda and his team is the kind you hope you will always receive but sadly often don't get. The surgery recommended and performed by Mr Hamouda has enabled me to have a new lease of life, moving to a new area and making a completely new start. I now feel well again, I am no longer anaemic, nor do I have the feeling of choking, I am no longer tired and in pain and I now have energy and enthusiasm for living. A bonus of the surgery is that I have lost weight as I don't eat as much as I used to. Thank you Mr Hamouda for giving me my life back. I would recommend Mr Hamouda to anyone who needs this procedure.
