We provide early appointments and rapid test results to help nip problems in the bud and allow you to spend as little time as possible worrying. You also won't have to worry about long waiting lists to get the treatment that you need. 

 

Our goal is to get you back to where you want to be as quickly as possible.

He believes that the key to achieving optimal patient outcomes is an experienced, appropriately trained consultant-led team combined with careful preoperative assessment and investigations. He is devoted to going above and beyond for his patients to achieve this.

Mr Abu-Own referees for the British Journal of Surgery and International Journey of surgery and has built his reputation on the basis of his commitment to the highest standards for patient care, safety and outcomes. 

He is well versed in the conventional as well as the most modern, minimally invasive treatments. This allows him to draw on all of the available options to make sure you are offered the best treatment out there for your individual needs.
