Mr. Javed Sultan is the Consultant Oesophago-Gastric Surgeon at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. I had been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in Sept 2014 and this was followed by a course of chemotherapy. Mr. Sultan and his team operated on me on 25/02/2015 – this involved a two-phase oesophagogastrectomy lasting over 9 hours.
Pre-admission consultations I found Mr. Sultan’s approach extremely professional. his manner was informative and straightforward.
Post Chemotherapy: I was asked by Mr. Sultan to join his new 6 week pre-habilitation exercise regime designed to build up my strength in key areas of my body and improve my cardio vascular to aid me with dealing with the surgery and allow me to retain strength particularly in my upper body and legs post surgery to enable speedier recovery.
Post Operation: Mr. Sultan kept me well informed of developments, making frequent ward visits to check on my progress. His style was caring and inspirational, providing me with the additional motivation required for increased effort on my part, which resulted in a shorter recovery time in hospital – 8 days from surgery to leaving the hospital.
During the whole process, Mr. Sultan always made my wife feel very welcome and at ease during my consultations and when she was visiting me post surgery.
It also has to be said that Mr. Sultan’s entire team, as well as the staff particularly within the ICU unit, were excellent in all respects of my care at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford.
It’s a long recovery period from this surgery (my appointment with the Bus) for me and, so far, I have had no issues or problems, which I believe is entirely down to his skills as a surgeon – he has saved my life.
Mr. Sultan receives the highest recommendation from me.
As part of a hernia investigation, I was diagnosed with a cancer tumour in my oesophagus, where it joins the stomach – such a shock. Mr. Sultan and his team removed of 1/2 of oesophagus and 1/2 the stomach in an 11 hour operation at the
beginning of January.
I found Mr. Sultan professional, with a no frills approach of “telling it like it is” with risk and implications well explained. He was much in evidence during my time in hospital, checking on my recovery and encouraging me to push harder to get back
It’s a long recovery period and, so far, I have had no real issues which must be a testament to his skills as a surgeon – he saved my life.
I was phoned by Mr Sultan on evening after he had operated on my husband to reassure me that everything was ok.
Mr Sultan was brilliant, he always made a point of coming to see me when I came to visit my husband to give me an update on how he was. He was always happy to answer any questions that I had.
Very friendly and approachable and helpful to the extreme.
When visiting clinic after operation Mr Sultan still very helpful. Making sure that everything is ok and seeing if there is anything that he can do
When I first met Javed he took great care to put me at ease and explain my problemsto me and to ensure that I understood the situation. He was always ready to answer any queries I had and we soon established a very meaningful relationship and were able to talk frankly and freely at all times. Javed never tried to hide anything and gave me as accurate a scenario as possible at all stages of my operation and treatment.
It also has to be said that Javed`s entire team were excellent in all respects of my care at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford.
I have had a large “gist” and my spleen removed and I am enjoying great aftercare and ongoing treatment from Javed and his team. I am being kept informed of future scenarios and possible outcomes and I feel 100% confident that I am getting the best care possible. Also Javed made my wife feel very welcome and at ease during my consultations and was willing to explain everything to her which made it a lot easier for her to deal with my situation
Thank you Javed
Javed repairs oesophagus ruptures really well.
Clearly a master in his field and great team-worker directing colleagues and seeking advise when he needed to make sure about further actions, for example asking cardio-vascular specialists at Royal Brompton.
Above all, Javed really cares and I’m glad he was in charge of saving my life.
Mr Sultan has taken great care to explain every stage of my surgery & follow up visits to both myself & my family. This has helped immensely during a very difficult time.
We are forever in his debt.
