I have had many procedures done over the years with good results. My husband has also been a patient for more serious problems which he has had solved. We are both very happy and would recommend him without reservation. Janine Coulson

Not impressed with three BCC excisions with proud flesh in my nose preventing me from breathing. Have now had to come to a plastic surgeon for more surgery to get it fixed.

My hernia was finally fixed after being botched twice by a South African surgeon who was rude and told me I stuffed it up and gave myself an infection. I have had a melanoma in the past removed by Mr Aitken and fixed properly. Now I won’t go to anyone else.

Sent by my local doctor for a skin check. He spotted a number of blemishes and a skin spot that didn't look like anything suspicious but it turned out to be a melanoma on my foot. It was removed without fuss. I am so happy. Brett

Had a hernia repair with this doctor with a great result. Previously had an operation with another surgeon in the same town and it came back in a month. Now it has been properly done and I have no pain and almost invisible scar. I am very grateful. John Bray
