My life has been transformed following deep brain stimulation for tremor In July by Erlick Pereira and his team after years of suffering and increasing disability which was insidiously invading my quality of life and my ability to carry out the small but important tasks which make up every day living.. I am Irish so going to another jurisdiction was daunting for both my family and me. I needn’t have worried. The care , kindness and expertise blew me away and I felt completely safe from the get go at the admissions desk at London Clinic. I’m genuinely so grateful to this Team for giving me my life back- so reassuring, so skillful and so respectful of my needs. It’s the first time ever I have felt PART of the Surgical Team- this wasn’t a“we will do this and we know best”, rather it was a collaborative effort which , ensured every one relevant was kept in the loop
at all times- not least the patient and my family. We were literally all in this together.. This is the World Class medicine as it should be. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to this Team, Dr Pereira , Professor Aziz, Dr Amy and Dr Paviour. Their willingness to be available and reassuring to me on any concerns is beyond any description I can come up with. I’m cured, I’m anazed, I’m so grateful. Needless to say I’m still recovering from significant brain surgery but that just takes time and rest. This Team and this surgery are at the cutting edge of a surgical innovation which can quite literally transform people’s lives. I have no other words except THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART AND I WANT TO SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.
