"Brain Tumour Operation"

About: Radcliffe Infirmary / Neurosurgery

(as the patient),

I attended John Radcliffe Neurology wing in November 2010. I had been diagnosed as having a brain tumour in the upper left portion of my brain and whilst it was thought to be unlikely to be malignant, I was still seen with 4 weeks of diagnosis.

The surgeon, Mr Kamat, and all his team were very professional and I felt I knew exactly what was to happen. I was only in hospital for 3 days and was told before leaving that the biopsy had come back as a benign tumour which was very reassuring.

The cleanliness of the ward was generally good and the quality of food was also of a good level. My only real complaint would be about the noise the trainee/university staff made on an evening. Quite clearly they had no appreciation that patients were trying to sleep after major operations and made an excessive amount of noise.

I wish to express my thanks on behalf of my team for your comments on the treatment that you have received at the John Radcliffe hospital under my care. It is extremely motivating for a surgeon to receive this valuable feedback which has an impact on our practice.
