In September of this year I went into Leeds Nuffield hospital for FESS / Polypectomy, carried out by Mr Gerard Kelly. From the initial consultation, scan, tests, actual operation and two follow up appointments, I cannot fault any aspect of my treatment. My operation was done as a day case and I was home by early evening the same day. My wife commented the day after my op on how well I looked! My nose was completely blocked with polyps and I hadn't had a sense of smell at all for years. Two months on from my operation, my nose is totally clear and I have my sense of smell back - it is wonderful to be able to smell and taste my food again, I have more energy, am not breathless any more and feel generally much better. I also have Samter's Triad and Mr Kelly explained all about it and advised me how to follow a low salicylate diet in the long term. Many thanks to Mr Kelly and his team, would certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of having ENT surgery.
I was concerned about my recent operation on all my sinuses. Dr Kelly made me feel I was in good hands which made me feel relaxed on the day. All the staff on the day ward were amazing. Thank you to you all
I was given direct access to Mr Kelly via his email should I have any concerns around my symptoms or any questions. I did have reason to make contact and his responses and feedback were great. I am really pleased with the level of care I received and consider the personal contact an absolute bonus for a concerned patient.
I felt Mr Kelly really listened to me, and nothing was too much trouble. He is very kind, caring and showed empathy towards me and my health complaint. Also very reassuring, i felt like I was in safe hands.
