"Dr Scott is an amazing plastic surgeon and a very professional, caring and lovely man. I had 100% confidence from my first consultation and I could not be happier with the results. I have had various operations with him due to breast cancer and I can not rate him enough."

"I was referred to Mr Kumar with a foot injury, we decided not to go for surgery at this stage. The staff were excellent and Mr Kumar has a very personable manner and exudes confidence - first class communicator with an excellent manner. Highly recommended."

If you have a gall bladder stone do you always have to have gall bladder removal?

  • Not necessarily. The decision to treat patients with gallbladder stones is always reached with the individual after considering factors including their symptoms, general level of fitness and any potentially serious complications of the gallstones, e.g. infection, stones causing blockage of bile ducts and pancreatitis.

    However, if the decision is made to proceed with treatment for gallbladder stones, the standard approach is surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy), not just removal of the gallstones as gallstones will commonly recur if the gallbladder remains.
