After many years of battling with my weight, I had found that I could lose 3 or 4 stone when I committed to it but then my weight loss would plateau and then as my frustration turned to depression, the weight would go back on and more.
I would like to recommend and say a big thank you to Mr Jenkinson. Firstly, I would like to thank him for the weight loss surgery that he performed on my daughter three years ago resulting in my two beautiful grandsons.
After suffering from Acid Reflux for over 20 years, my condition started to become chronic over the last few years. The PPI medication stopped working and I was constantly suffering from regurgitation and belching, to the extent that I was unable to lie down or sleep and was forced to take sleeping pills. After much research, I opted for the Stretta procedure as it was non-invasive.
I struggled for 8 years to lose the weight I gained after my child was born. I was 30 kilograms heavier and I tried every diet but nothing worked. I met Mr. Jenkinson through my GP.
I was referred to Andrew Jenkinson for a consultation having struggled with acid reflux for over 18 years.
I have nothing but praise for the treatment I received from Mr Jenkinson and The Wellington Hospital. I checked in on a Wednesday morning, went into surgery at 11am, was back in my private room at 5pm drinking a latte, and discharged the following afternoon. The friendly, professional staff did everything to make me feel comfortable and at home. More importantly, the surgery has been a complete success.
I recently had surgery for a hiatus hernia and reflux, performed by Mr Jenkinson. The whole experience went very smoothly, with minimal pain and discomfort right after surgery, and a recovery process that has been, so far, very straight forward.
I highly recommend Andrew Jenkinson for his surgical expertise and professionalism. Not only is he a leader in his field, but he is also mindful of patients’ needs and wishes. He and his very helpful PA made great efforts to arrange my gall bladder removal as quickly as possible, for which I am extremely grateful. Thanks to Mr Jenkinson’s skills, I made a very fast recovery and was able to resume my normal life with minimal disruption.
