Father says thank you for lifesaving work at Royal Sussex County Hospital
3:20pm Tuesday 6th August 2013 in News
A father who underwent lifesaving surgery four weeks ago has praised hospital staff for their “incredible work”.
Yann Svenski, 59, was rushed to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton for surgery on an aortic aneurism in his stomach.
But despite the seriousness of the procedure, he is now recovering well at home in Clovers End, Patcham, Brighton.
He said: “The NHS and Royal Sussex in particular have come in for a lot of criticism recently.
“But I could not fault them at all.
The surgeon Mr El-Sakka and his team were fantastic.
“From the moment I walked in I felt as if I had known them for years. I could ask them anything and they would be honest and helpful.”
Mr Svenski was warned of the risks and went under the knife on July 11. The operation lasted almost five hours and it was a further five days before he was released.
He added: “Everything from the nursing care to the MRSA protection was faultless. It’s reassuring really.
“I wanted to make sure they got a good bit of press for once, they really deserve it.”
