Warmth and kindness to put me at ease
Thu 28 October 2021
January 2020 I had a mastectomy with a DIEP reconstruction performed by Miss Rose. From the moment we first met, Miss Rose talked me through the procedure and what to expect. Always honest and delivering the facts but with a warmth and kindness to put me at ease.
I Was Totally Supported

I would like to thank Mr Gateley, Nicky and the nurses at Parkside for making what could had been a terrible experience (a debridement) into a bearable situation. Mr Gateley explained each procedure in language I could understand and discussed the pros and cons of each option that could be used to aid the healing of my wound. After the faster first option failed, they all encouraged me during the four months (three times a week) needed for the expert dressing of the wound until I could dress it myself. Mr Gateley told me it would take time. The healing took seven months. I was totally supported during this time and I knew if I had any problem I could call and they would be there for me.
Results Are Beyond Expectation

My experience with Mr Gateley was supportive and professional from start to finish. I felt he and the team had time for me, and any queries I had. My outer thigh lipo results are beyond expectation. This is a surgery I've been contemplating on and off for 20 years. My only regret is not acting sooner.
Very Lucky To Have Been In Such Capable Hands

When you are told the best thing for your breast cancer is to have a mastectomy it is a massive shock! My breast surgeon Mr Sharma put me in touch with Miss Rose and I had a long meeting with her, she gave me a few different options showing me photographs of past patients and by the end of the meeting I had decided to go for a DIEP reconstruction, mainly because I wanted my own body in my own body! I cannot recommend her more highly, I felt completely safe at all times. Madeleine and Nicky were amazing, organising and contacting me for the operations and appointments. I had a wound on my new breast that took quite a while to heal, following a previous lumpectomy. During every dressing clinic I went to, either seeing Miss Rose or Sandy I was reassured every time and eventually it healed well. I had a few more operations to my tummy and to make the breast more even. Now two years on having had a mammogram and ultrasound last week, I am free of cancer and very happy with the outcome. I feel very lucky to have been in such capable hands during a traumatic time in my life. Thank you Miss Rose and your wonderful team.
