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 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.
