Stage IV Malignant Melanoma - made easier to come to terms with with the help of Mr Kosutic and his fantastic colleagues at The Christie. I was referred to Mr Damir Kosutic at The Christie, by my dermatologist at Tameside Hospital back in August 2014, having been diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma. From the very first day I met him I realised he had a profound caring nature. Not only did he reassure me that he and his team would be with me throughout my ongoing care, but he would involve me in all decisions that would need to be taken - and there have been lots! Mr Kosutic and his team have performed many surgical procedures for me, including wide excisions and more recently in July 2017, a ground breaking, long and intricate procedure (developed by Mr Kosutic and his colleagues at The Christie) to remove cancer deep within my knee using live ultrasound imaging during the operation - quite remarkable. I continue to have regular check-ups with Mr Kosutic, which are always very pleasant. He listens and reacts to each and every concern I may have and really helps me to stay focused and positive. You will always receive the best and kindest care with Mr Kosutic and I cannot thank him enough for travelling with me on the sometimes strange and strenuous journey that I'm on. David Horseman
Mr Kosutic is a pleasant, confident, dedicated, professional surgeon, who treats each patient as an important individual. He is clear in his explanations of what the surgery will entail and what can be expected during the recovery period. He is very easy to talk to and has the patience to answer every question asked. I am so fortunate to have had him as my surgeon.
I have been under the care of Mr Kosutic and his team since September 2016 after being diagnosed with a malignant melanoma. I had a wide local excision of the lesion, sentinel node biopsy and removal of further lesions in late September and further surgery in November 2016 at The Christie. I am really please with the care I have received from the surgeons and nurses, I have always been kept well informed pre and post op and the aftercare has been amazing (even when faced with post-op infection and complications). I attend regular check ups now and Mr Kosutic and his team are always thorough and attentive.
The Whole Christie experience was so sound, caring, efficient, and I always kept informed My condition was really simple and non life threatening - but for those in less good health, it’s great to see what good care they would be offered Mr Kosutic, was equally informative, and obviously skilful, and my quite minor requirement was perfectly executed He had a good team around him, who obviously respected him, and worked well around him. I’d feel very confident in recommending him, and his team
From my first appointment with mr kosutic I was treated with respect and care, It was explained to my mr kosutic in great detail about my operation and my recovery. I am 3months after operation and am cancer free and due to my aftecare I healed exceptionally well and am looking at returning back to work .
