Adult and Paediatric Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon
This proper review is long overdue. Mr J Kandasamy has transformed the last eighteen months of my life and enabled me to still be a carer and active mother to my children. In October 2017 he operated on my spine relieving pressure on nerves.supplying the lower part of my body. Without this surgery I would be an incontinent 84 year woman in pain and unable to feel my feet and walk with confidence.. I now walk up to a mile or more every day Mr Kandasamy was my second attempt at requesting help as being elderly and having other conditions there were considerable risks and not wholly advised. The care and consideration given by Mr Kandasamy and his team are beyond words as are the supporting nursing staff in the Western General Hospital. Thankyou.
Three years ago our daughter (12 at the time) was rushed into the Royal Hospital for Sick Children with a life threatening condition. Mr Kandasamy and his team literally saved her life and took wonderful care of her as well as providing first class treatment. Mr Kandasamy explained everything clearly to us making sure that we understood what each stage entailed, at what was a very difficult time of our lives. The aftercare of our daughter and follow up appointments by Mr Kandasamy have been of the highest standard. This has allowed her to resume her studies, and has returned to playing the violin and keyboards, she has also been able to return to her judo class, something that in the period after her surgery we were not sure if she would ever be able to do. If it was not for Mr Kandasamy and his team, our family would be very different today and for that we will be eternally grateful
Having recently experience spinal surgery under the care Dr Kandasamy, I feel like my life has been restored. Prior to the onset of my back problems I had been very fit and healthy. Losing my fitness was very distressing. Just before surgery my condition deteriorated significantly and walking any distance at all was excruciating. I was often losing the power and feelings in my legs, I had stopped going out alone. From my first consultation with Dr Kandasamy I felt completely at ease. I held no fear at all about the surgery as I knew I was in very safe hands. During my post op consultation, I was quite emotional, reflecting back to where I had been and talking about how very difficult things had been before surgery. I have been deeply moved by Dr Kandasamy’s care and attention. I particularly appreciated his humanness, his keenness to engage, and his conveyed understanding of the effects on my life. I felt I was heard. Thank you so much. Moira Hood
Mr Kandasamy is the consumate professional, articulate, caring and a first rate communicator. Unfortunately over the past number of years I have had more than my fair share of experiences of the NHS system but can say that the treatment I have received under his supervision has been absolutely superb. The NHS is extremely important to the people of Scotland (and rightly so). One immediate way of enhancing its performance which comes to mind based on the quality of service which I have received from Mr Kandasamy would be to consider cloning him as soon as circumstances permit!! I cannot commend him highly enough and would place on record my appreciation of his expertise. Alistair Geddes
My daughter was admitted to The Sick kids Hospital last March and needed urgent surgery. She was seen and treated my Mr Kandasamy, who explained everything to us clearly, going in to detail about her surgery and her after care treatment in a way that we could easily understand. He was a professional at all times and was always available for us to ask him any questions that we had. The work that Mr Kandasamy and his team do is truly amazing and for that I will always be thankful.
