I first met Mr Chitsabeson & Dr Lin at my assessment appointment, where he considerately listened to what was needed and my concerns. Arranging to have Mr Lin in attendance for the operation, if required. A great deal of information was exchanged at that appointment and after explanations Mr Chitsabeson gave me the options open to me. We agreed that he would make the decision on the best option 'on the day', taking into account the damage and my chronic health limitations. My planned operation had been postponed due to various reasons 4 or 5 times. The next scheduled date was 16th March 2020 - THE week of lockdown. I fully expected it to be deferred again. I wasn't and it went ahead with a positive outcome. Lockdown and Covid meant the post-op discussion has only just taken place, by telephone and not in person which was disappointing as I had wanted to be able to meet him to pass on my grateful thanks. He has a lovely clam manner that instils confidence. He listens to everything and will take time with you. I feel very happy that he was my surgeon!! Thank you.

My consultation by telephone (Covid restricted) with Mr Chitsabesan pre-op was thorough and gave me great confidence in the procedure, with different surgical methods considered to repair an inguinal hernia which had become enlarged. He explained carefully the likely recovery time and possible discomfort. The surgery in York Nuffield went well and he spent time with me beforehand carefully answering my questions. My recovery from what he told me had been a complex procedure has gone exceptionally well and after 4 weeks there is minimal swelling and no pain. The follow-up call showed his continuing understanding of my concerns and his reassurances about the likely final recovery time I found confirmed my confidence in him. I would recommend him to anyone with a similar problem and am very grateful to him for everything he has done.

Excellent consultation On time (in fact slightly early) listened to me patiently and put me at ease straight away Mr Chitsabesan explained the problem in detail with diagrams (5* for that too) Covered the exercises I needed to do in great detail and then went over them again. Outstanding service

Mr Chitsabesan treated me like an individual with my own experiences of my condition, rather than just another patient with text book symptoms. He based his judgements on my personal experiences, rather than merely following basic guideline questions. He was professional throughout and ensured that I fully understood everything by using both scan photographs and diagrams. I felt like I had received an expert opinion by somebody who’s main goal was to provide me with the best care possible for the specific issues stemming from my condition.
