Capsule endoscopy - Pillcam

I have suffered with ongoing symptoms of IBS from 2005.  My General Practitioner could not offer a remedy for my ever increasing pain and discomfort.  I recently suffered from a severe bout of worsening symptoms and also noted that my bowels were very loose and it looked as though I was not absorbing fat . I felt that I now needed further investigation to rule out any other possible cause for my symptoms.

Mr B - Treatment for neuroendocrine tumor

Twelve months on from the operation I feel better than I have done for the last twenty five years. Anyone else suffering with stomach problems I would certainly recommend that they see Dr Ramakrishnan because he is very through, very easy to talk to and a very caring professional consultant.

Mrs S - treatment for suspected colitis

"Although I had a diagnosis suggestive of ulcerative colitis I was asymptomatic and so Dr Ramakrishnan advised me to wait to see if these changes related to other possibilities"

Mrs N - Treatment for bowel cancer

I was treated at Spire Cheshire Hospital by Dr Subramaniam Ramakrishnan, Consultant Gastroenterologist. I was experiencing changes to my usual bowel habits, weight loss, lack of appetite and extreme tiredness and anaemia.
Unusually I think, I also had several episodes of high temperature and rigors which was found not to be related to infection.

Mrs O's laparoscopic hysterectomy

Mrs M was initially referred to Mr Hugh Griffith at Spire Cheshire Hospital by her GP as she had suffered with heavy periods with severe pain, sickness and migraines for several years. Her GP had tried to treat her symptoms but it came to a point whereby she couldn’t carry out her normal day to day life because of the problems she experienced - particularly with severe flooding.

Ms K - Botox treatment for migraine

Following a total thyroidectomy in 1994, I developed chronic, crippling migraines. It was normal for me to have two, three-day, attacks each week with severe headaches on any migraine-free days. In March 2012, following a holiday totally ruined by constant migraine, I asked my GP to refer me to Dr Nick Silver, Consultant Neurologist at the Spire Cheshire Hospital. By that time, I was no longer able to exercise, work, or to perform as a musician. My whole life was dominated by migraines.

Mrs T Brown - Yag laser capsulotomy

I was ‘over the moon’, I could drive again, read again and see better than I had done for months. I also have peace of mind that if I do experience any more problems I can come back to see Mr Bregu and this means a lot.

Orthopaedic - Lower limb

Mr Adam Garner ACL revision / meniscal allograft transplantation

Mr Attar initially undertook  a series of MRI scans and X-rays and then an arthroscopy of my knee and told me that there was very little left of my original ACL graft and that there was only 1/3rd of my medial meniscus remaining following the various surgeries. He advised that if I did nothing then I was likely to require a knee replacement within 2-3 years but that he could put this off by 10-15 years by undertaking an ACL revision and a meniscal allograft.
