Following a diagnosis of hyper parathyroid disease which the consultant suggested I had been ‘harbouring for many years’ I realised that NHS waiting times meant that I should opt to go privately for the operation. Researching on line I chose Mr Kirkby Bott because of his ongoing research in this area in addition to regularly performing this operation. I was impressed by the swiftness with which the operation was arranged by Mr K-B and his backup team as well as the support by The Spire. Eight weeks on, post operation guidance has ensured that I feel fully recovered and fitter and I am very pleased to have been treated by Mr Kirkby- Bott.

Having been offered 4-6 months wait by the NHS for repair of a worsening inguinal hernia; I contacted Mr Kirkby Bott who was able to do it in under two weeks. He recommended local anaesthesia with sedation. The procedure went very smoothly and the anaesthetist Dr Sutherland did a great job also with the sedation. I followed the post op guidance to the letter and at 6 weeks was back to normal. I also had bowel problems pre op which completely disappeared. Pain post op for about 3 days was easily manageable for me with paracetamol. Discomfort, occasional pain and a lot of bruising for 3-4 weeks reducing every day. I still use the hernia pants for higher workloads. I would highly recommend Mr Kirkby Bott and his team.

Response from Mr James Kirkby-Bott

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience and outcomes from inguinal hernia surgery with Hernia Clinic Hampshire. It was very useful to understand how the hernia pants help, as our use of them is one of the innovations of our local anaesthetic and sedation technique. I am really pleased we were able to help you get back to your normal life sooner and appreciate your feedback. Thank you and all the best.

The whole procedure went as explained, and the Nursing care immediately after the procedure was excellent, however, I think I overdid things in the first week of recovery and played at a Gig on Day 5 and this was a mistake! Very uncomfortable in bed for the first 72 hours. I also made the mistake of easing off the pain relief too quickly within the first week. I quickly went back onto it for a few more days and it was a noticeable help. In retrospect, if I have followed the advice given more closely I would have had a better outcome over the first one or two weeks. Some two months down the line everything has healed as it should and I feel absolutely fine - I am back Gigging on a regular basis. Going "Private" at my age, 78, was an excellent decision!

As soon as I was diagnosed with an infected gallbladder, I began a search online for a Gallbladder surgeon, I read many testimonials, but felt drawn to Mr Kirkby-Bott after reading comments such as ‘Calm and concise manner’, ‘the level of care and professionalism was exceptional’ and ‘He is an extremely professional but obviously caring man with a genuine interest in getting me better! I felt totally safe in his hands, and he was very supportive throughout my journey’. All of the above are true of Mr Kirkby-Bott. From my first consultation to my last follow up appointment, I’ve felt a genuine on Erin for my health and wellbeing. At the first consultation, he cleared up the misinformation I’d been given about gallbladder surgery and pre op and post op eating. If you follow the instructions on his website regarding the Gallbladder pre op and post op, you’ll enjoy the excellent experience that I did. Originally, I was sick and weak from the gallbladder infections, but just 2 days after my surgery I felt the best I had been in just over 2 years. After surgery I had no pain, just a little discomfort and now 2 months later, I have 4 thin scratch lines on my torso as reminders. In time, I can see, they will heal to be virtually invisible. I’m most grateful for his skill as a surgeon, his professionalism as a consultant and his compassion as a human.His kindness, sincere caring and concern made everything better and we’re all a great encouragement in my recovery. Thanks must also go to his support team of colleagues who contributed to what could have been a fearful experience, but was made into a very enjoyable one. I can’t thank you enough for giving me back my health, as that is priceless. Every day of my life will be better because of you. Norma Stephenson - May 2022
