"Our family’s journey initially involved engagement of four consultants over several years, many words and very little activity which actually mitigated the pain and inflammation that had grounded my son for many months of his childhood. Then, almost by chance, came a recommendation to see Dr Ian McCafferty: From first introduction Dr Ian McCafferty demonstrated considerable depth and understanding of my son’s condition, venous malformation within the thigh muscle, immediately adopting a confident considerate ‘can-do’ attitude, recommending an ‘innovative’ application of non-invasive ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Dr Ian McCafferty applied remarkable levels of clinical expertise, skill and dexterity in the application of this technique. Consequently, my boy finally got to experience a very active, outdoor childhood and excelled in so many activities he previously couldn’t have dreamed of. Doc, you’ve changed his life, and also allowed me to be a proud Dad!"

"I was extremely nervous when I arrived on the ward, but once I met you and you explained the procedure you made me feel totally at ease. Both you and your team were excellent and I am totally satisfied with my port."

"After going through treatment for prostate cancer I was devastated to find I had cancer in both kidneys, found whilst having a routine ultrasound. I was offered a open partial nephrectomy surgery. I was very concerned at my age and I didn't want to loose a kidney or even part of it. I was also very concerned about possible infection and recovery time. I looked for alternative treatments and found renal ablation, one being cryoablation, but was only available at specialist centres in UK. I met Dr Ian McCafferty at the Priory Hospital Birmingham, who was very professional and positive that cryoablation would be suitable for my kidney tumours. The procedure was quite straight forward and involved only one night hospital stay with a very quick recovery time. I was so delighted..minimal risks..no complications. My sincere thanks to Dr Ian McCafferty."
