Mr Drostan Cheetham

I qualified from University College London in 1994, and followed my surgical training throughout the West London region. My specialist interest is in Colorectal pathology both benign and malignant. I am lead of the Colorectal Cancer Multi-disciplinary Team at WHHT. I have a particular interest in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery with approximately 90% of my practice being performed this way. I work exclusively at the West Herts NHS Trust.

I was anxious and scared when I was diagnosed with Colon Rectal Cancer following a routine bowel screening test earlier this year ( I urge people to do this test, it probably saved my life) but meeting Mr Cheetham changed that, He has such empathy that I immediately felt at ease, he explained everything in an easy understanding way,he also has a great sense of humour, He and his team performed my Operation at Watford General and it was a total success, Mr Cheetham come to see me upon my arrival and also phoned my son immediately after my op to reasure my family. I am under Mr Cheethams care for five years which is very reassuring, I am truly grateful to everyone involved in my treatment and care, before during and after my Op, Five Star treatment from our wonderful NHS.

Mr Cheetham and his team of nurses have been my rock for the past 12 months since he diagnosed me with rectal cancer. I am now on a full road to recovery, and I thank him for everything from consultations through to the surgery he performed. He was brilliant, and his team second to none. Not forgetting his wicked sense of humour !!. I thank you all again.

I underwent bowel surgery performed by Mr Cheetham. Very neat with minimum scaring. At follow up appointments he answered all my questions in a clear and easy to understand way. Excellent "bedside" manner.

Thank you Mr. Cheetham for operating on my incisional hernia (caused by an earlier operation at a private hospital). From the morning of my operation and meeting him, to the day of my discharge I could not have had better care and also enjoyed the food. Thanks once again Mr. Cheetham. You are worth the five stars+.
