In May 2014 I had a blockage in the bowel and was admitted to Queens Hospital as an emergency case. Mr Mukherjee was my surgeon and performed an operation to remove a cancerous tumour from my bowel and fit a Stoma Bag. He was very thorough and explained the situation to me fully prior to the operation. Unfortunately my condition was a lot more serious than I thought with the bowel almost at bursting point. However, although I was unconscious or sedated for 5 days due to other complications Mr Mukherjee had successfully removed the tumour. I am 3 years down the line now and after Chemo Therapy can now lead a near normal life. I will forever be grateful to Mr Mukherjee and his team together with the Intensive Care Unit for their professionalism, care and support they gave me. I am absolutely certain they saved my life and I cannot praise them enough. Eddie Haley
In May 2016 I was admitted to Queen's hospital in Romford Essex for a laparoscopic repair of a giant para oesophageal hiatus hernia, an operation carried out by the surgeon Mr D. Mukherjee. Up until the time of the operation I was experiencing difficulties with breathing due to the constriction in my chest and was unable to walk more than a few yards without stopping to catch my breath. I had problems with swallowing food and drink. I slept propped upright at night due to severe acid reflux and had a continuous burning in my nose and throat due to reflux as well as a constant taste in my mouth of vomit - all very distressing symptoms. When I saw Mr Mukherjee initially to discuss my troubling symptoms I was very anxious but I was very quickly put at ease by Mr Mukherjee's careful explanation of what the problem was and what could be done to restore my health. He is an excellent 'people-person' with the ability to make his patient feel involved in the process of understanding what has been happening and what needs to be done without increasing patient anxiety. I came away from the consultation feeling positive and hopeful and much less anxious. The care that I recieved at Queens Hospital during and after the operation was magnificent. The Day staff on the ward (Ocean A) were excellent, hard working, attentive, supportive. My only reservation was with the night staff who, when I reported an unusual and disturbing heart rate told me to keep calm and go back to sleep. This was checked on the following day and found to be atrial fibrillation. Mr Mukherjee and members of his team were in constant attendance until I was discharged at the end of four days. Mr Mukherjee also arranged for immediate follow-up appointments for the first month of my recovery. Since the operation I have been able to walk good distances with no problems at all as well as to swim, sleep flat and eat a healthy diet. I cannot praise Mr Mukherjee highly enough as well as the care received from the nursing staff. My thanks and good wishes go to him, his team and the nursing staff that have brought me back to a healthy life. Maureen Mckenzie.
I had been referred to Mr Mukherjee after 18 months of being told I had IBS by my GP and other consultants. This September I requested my GP to investigate this further and due to having private healthcare they referred me to an IBS specialist, Dr Ashraf. He requested tests and an ultrasound, which found I had a gallstone. Dr Ashraf then referred me to Mr Mukherjee. My first meeting with Mr Mukherjee lasted about an hour; it was not rushed at all, he drew a detailed picture of what was happening to my gallbladder/gallstone, the possible outcomes if I was to leave it as it is, and the outcomes of taking the gallbladder out. He explained all of the pro’s and con’s to both sides and did not push me towards either way, instead he told me to go home and think about the information he had gave, do some research and then let him know. He made me feel so much at ease with whatever choice I took. I went ahead with the surgery, which the procedure itself went smoothly, the cuts are so small and I know with time you will barely see them. I am so happy I was referred to Mr Mukherjee, I can honestly say I am so grateful to have met him, he is the most caring, supportive and informative Dr I have ever met! I have just come back from my 3 week check up, and can’t be happier with the results, I am so glad I got this done now and didn’t wait any longer. After prolonged suffering and back and forth to hospitals (a&e) with no diagnosis, Mr Mukherjee has restored my faith in Dr’s, I only wish were like him, or that he could be my GP! Thank you for making me feel human again xx
Dr Mukherjee was my surgeon who performed a Splenectomy. I can honestly say that he is the most kindest, considerate & caring person I have had the privilege to meet, let alone be my consultant/surgeon. He is so passionate about his work & his patients come first. Lovely, lovely clever man.
I discovered that I had an inguinal hernia and decided to have private treatment rather than wait for ever on an NHS waiting list. I chose to use The Spire Hartswood Hospital and as my GP was unable to recommend a surgeon, I looked on the hospital's website to find one. It was really more by luck than judgement that I chose Dip Mukherjee from a list of about 20 surgeons and I now know that I fortunately made the right choice. Within 24 hours of phoning for a consultation I was seen and examined by Dip and surgery was arranged for 2 weeks later. This could have been done sooner, but I chose to have it done on a Saturday. Dip explained to me what an inguinal hernia was and what he was going to do to repair it and how my recovery would go. He was very friendly and professional and gave me the reassurance I needed at what was for me a worrying and stressful time. The day after my procedure he phoned me at home to see how I was feeling and to tell me that the operation had gone well. I would not hesitate to recommend Dip Mukherjee to anyone needing his specific surgical skills and found him to be a thoroughly nice guy and an expert in his field. Top man.
