"I was referred to Mr. Syed in March of this year and at the initial consultation we reviewed the results of a CT scan, which had identified a large stone in my left kidney.
It was quickly established that the stone needed to be surgically removed and Mr Syed recommended that a PCNL procedure should be used. After discussing the detail of the procedure with Mr. Syed it was clear that he and his team had considerable specialist experience of this procedure and I felt very reassured that whist I would undergo major surgery the procedure offered far less trauma than other surgical options and I agreed to proceed with the procedure.

The operation went well and Mr. Syed and his team were extremely professional, capable and reassuring throughout and I would have no hesitation in recommending the PCNL procedure and Mr. Syed and his extremely competent team to anyone finding themselves in the situation of having to consider the treatment of a large kidney stone."

Dear Mr Syed

In my case having never experienced any serious medical care in all my 78 years, I had not been made aware of the 'modern' way of dealing with the treatment of kidney stones, and approached the event with some trepidation, however I was overawed by the care and attention that I received at Little Aston and to my benefit any nerves that would normally have been experienced were soon lost.

The most important chapter of my visits was the attention, extreme interest and care I received from yourself and your staff, their expertise ensured that my recovery was rapid and relatively painless.

To sum up the whole treatment I received was '1st Class Plus'!

First time I had a kidney stone and it happened to be 7mm long. The excruciating pain started in Turkey while I was on holiday, for 5 days in a private hospital various Dr's tried few techniques but failed and I had completely lost hope because I had an operation, shockwave treatment and nothing worked. After flying back with high doses of pain killers I was sent to Little Aston Hospital by my GP to see Dr Syed following my request to see a specialist in the field. A series of simple examinations and an X ray was done and Dr Syed explained exactly what the problem was, how complicated it had become and what the solution would be. Under general anaesthetic Dr Syed managed to breakup the stone and extract every single bit of that calcium oxalate stone with a bendy telescope.

Following the operation Dr Syed came to check on me in recovery room and showed me the stone that had been killing me over the past few weeks. I was in and out in a day and seven days later following the operation under local anaesthetic the tube that was put in there to prevent inflammation as a precaution was removed, the process took 10 minutes. I am very grateful and fortunate to have had one of the best surgeons in the Urological field looking after me. A great Hospital and a great team deserves nothing less than a great Doctor. I would recommend Dr Syed's first class care, professionalism and iconic knowledge to anyone who simply wants the best of the best.

All the best. Regards Amir Sami


' I recently underwent a resection of a bladder tumour under the care of Mr Syed at Spire Little Aston Hospital. I would like to say that right from the first consultation Mr Syed installed me with confidence, as he not only explained matters by way of a clear illustration, but also enthused confidence as to how the procedure would take place and what I could expect afterwards by way of recovery. Mr Syed saw me both before and after the procedure, when he showed great humility and my follow up appointment was dealt with in a confident, yet relaxed manner. I have great confidence in Mr Syed's abilities and experience in dealing with what is an unusual situation for any patient to find themselves in. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Syed or the facilities at the Spire to any of my contemporaries.'

Mr Syed has written to me asking for feedback on my recent operation.

I can advise that I found the process of the consultation, tests and operation itself wholly satisfactory in all respects. The care and professionalism were excellent.
