From Mr Kunasingham and his team I have received excellent care following my recent 'keyhole' foot surgery. 2019&2020 I had 'non keyhole surgery' on both feet, the difference is 3 weeks after this surgery I could resume my active life, compared to 3 months after 'non keyhole surgery '.
I am 80 this year and being widowed, live alone the bulky dressings mean unbalanced walking resulting in other aches/pains, plus preparing meals hard work.
All Mr Kunasingham's team have been approachable for my queries without making me feel a nuisance.
The 3 weeks before wearing shoes and no bulky dressings with 'keyhole surgery' results in my improved physical and mental fitness. The comparison to length of time it took to bounce back after 'shuffling' around with 'non keyhole' surgery is a great big plus at my age.
Through this 'keyhole' surgery team I have had a Physiotherapist email me exercises instead of taking conflicting 'Google' advice.
I would highly recommend anyone who needs foot surgery to feel confident they will have expert treatment from this team.
