Mr Simon Hobbs is a Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon working in the Black Country Vascular Network. He completed his undergraduate education at Birmingham University in 1998 and then undertook basic and higher surgical training in the major vascular units in the West Midlands. He was awarded the prestigious BSET Endovascular Fellowship post in Liverpool, gaining experience in the management of complex aortic aneurysms. He has a passionate interest in the management of abdominal aortic aneurysms and lower limb peripheral arterial disease. Mr Hobbs has a specialist interest in providing high quality varicose vein and thread vein treatments specialising in minimally invasive, local anaesthetic techniques that are performed as walk-in, walk-out procedures.
6cm Aneurism on Aorta, spotted accidentally during a PET scan for Cancer in throat area and then treated very quickly by Mr Hobbs and his Team. I was fortunate enough to have an epidural because I was unusually fit and the whole operation and recovery was exactly as predicted. The stent insertion has been entirely successful and, relatively painless. So 6 weeks later I've played golf twice and my recovery is at a stage where my original cancer scare can be dealt with. I even had a 'phone call from Mr. Hobbs , late one evening and early during my treatment. This was most useful in building my confidence. It was only to re-arrange an appointment but saved a lot of my time. I felt it was well beyond the care I might have expected as an NHS patient well into his 80s. Thanks to the Team at New Cross for their Professionalism and the care and friendliness.
A gentleman with compasion,a great listener,very investigative and informative an excellent bedside manner it was a pleasure to meet him,he had my trust from the start.I saw him at the Nuffield,New Cross and my surgery was carried out at Russells Hall.His demeanour at all times was impeccable.
Mr Hobbs and his team were excellent throughout the whole of my treatment. I can not speak too highly of the care and information I received.I was concerned about having an operation in a hospital I did not know, but the experience was most reassuring.I have no suggestions for improvement.
Top quality èxçeĺĺent care throughout my course of pre and post operative treatment by Mr. Hobbs. I cannot praise him highly enough for his caring and compassion at all times and being prepared to spend "as long as it takes" with each patient , sometimes just to sit and listen to my concerns and then to encourage and put my mind at rest with just a few words .With grateful thanks from tony broadhurst.
While under the care of Mr Hobbs, I found him to be very professional but also compassionate which made me feel at ease with any worries or concerns I had about the procedure. He explained everything I did not understand in what was going to happen during and after and didn't complex things with the usual medical jargon you get off most medical professions. Although Mr Hobbs has many patients I found him to be very personal in my individual needs and I felt as I wasn't just a number on a piece of paper to him. Aftercare was also excellent and I don't feel as if I'd just been left to recuperate alone as I was told there was always someone to call if they were needed. My overall experience whilst being under the care of Mr Hobbs was impeccable and I couldn't have asked for any better care.
