HE IS A SUPERB PROFESSIONAL AND IS SURROUNDED BY AN AMAZING TEAM
I had struggled with my weight since my teens and I had resigned myself to the fact that diets don’t work and I would be fat for the rest of my days. However as my health started to seriously decline as I neared the 30stone mark; my legs became swollen, I was too out of breath to climb the stairs and I had uncontrollable blood pressure. I began to get quite depressed about my future and worry about my job. I had heard about Mr Awad and the gastric sleeve surgery from family and friends and the amazing results that this could give. Despite being seriously needle phobic, I decided surgery was the only possible option as I was now more scared about what was going to happen to me if something didn’t change. When I went for a consultation, Mr Awad was so pleasant, non judgmental and reassuring. He filled me with confidence that something could be done and he would help me to do it. He was...

MR AWAD IS SECOND TO NONE AND THE PRE AND POST OP CARE HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE!
I would highly recommend Mr Awad for any weight loss surgery. I had had struggled with weight for 30 years. He performed revisional revisional surgery on me and I had a gastric bypass in October 2016 where I was borderline super morbidly obese. After losing a good amount of weight already and I’m only a four months in I feel so much healthier and I have my life back. I still have a long way to go but this is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am no longer hungry or crave food and sweets. Mr Awad is second to none and the pre and post op care has been incredible. He is brilliant.
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic Anti-reflux Surgery
I CAN UNRESERVEDLY RECOMMEND MR AWAD AND HIS TEAM AT DERBY HOSPITAL
I had been suffering from a hiatus hernia for some years, the effects were becoming progressively worse. Previously, I had undergone numerous surgeries for an unrelated condition. It had reached the point whereby I dreaded eating. Mr Awad at Derby Hospital not only heard what I had to say, but listened to what my body was telling him, he presented my options to me. Specifically, he made the risks associated with the operation itself very clear to me, which were complicated by my previous medical history, as well as the potential rewards. However, the daily impact of the hiatus hernia was such that the potential risks seemed worth it. The results of the operation, which was successful, have been lifechanging. My convalescence was trouble free and consistent with Mr Awad's time frame. I can now eat normally, suffer no reflux and vomiting, and my medication for acid indigestion is no longer...

THANK YOU DOCTOR SHERIF AWAD AND HIS TEAM FOR GIVING THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!
Hi my names Lewis Wilson, and I would like to thank the man that saved my life. I had s twist with my bowl, Malrotation which was giving me really really bad pains for the last 18 months, stopping me from working being a parent and paying sports. So, after numerous test I then met with doctor Sherif Awad, straight away he was on to helping me and changing my life. No doctor in the UK was able to do it as he told me he’d looked personally himself to help find one for me, no luck. Dr Awad told me his skills etc and then he said that he would do it. he also took my appendix out to stop further complications, I put a 100 percent trust in to him and he did a great job. I feel sore but it was only yesterday I had the operation. Would just like the time to say thank you doctor Sherif Awad and his team for giving the best birthday present ever! Nothing but love and respect. Thank you
SP. Laparoscopic-assisted Oesophagectomy Jan 17
HE ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS AND I CAME AWAY FROM THE MEETING KNOWING I WAS IN SAFE HANDS
Laparascopic assisted Ivor-Lewis Oesophagectomy (19-01-17) Mr. Awad was very caring and reassuring when I first met him. He made me feel very relaxed and I found him very down to earth and approachable. He answered all my questions and concerns, all this made me more confident about the forthcoming operation and I came away from the meeting knowing I was in safe hands. After the operation whilst I was in Intensive Care and Step Down Mr. Awad saw me several times and was in contact with his team constantly. He reasurred me that if I had any problems or concerns he was there. He made a point of coming in to see me one day even though he was not in the hospital , I thought that was very caring indeed and I certainly appreciated that. I would also like to mention that the level of care from the whole of Mr. Awads team was truly excellent. This included the Nursing Staff, ward Dr's, Specialis...
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
I WOULD HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING MR. AWAD.
Having had concerns about my health, I was looking to consult a gastrointestinal surgeon. I found Mr. Sherif Awad on the internet, sent him an email and received an appointment the following day. Following the consultation an operation was arranged two days later. I cannot fault the care and professionalism of Mr. Awad and his team. Mr. Awad is very friendly and approachable. He gave me reassurance and also confidence in the outcome of the operation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Awad.
A patient at Nuffield Hospital Derby - Hernia repair
I WOULD HAVE NO HESITATION WHATSOEVER IN RECOMMENDING MR SHERIF AWAD’S SERVICES.
Mr Awad examined and operated on my umbilical hernia in early May. I found him to be very approachable, polite and with good interpersonal skills. He listened and discussed opinions, openly considering and debating my personal feelings, and indeed changing his initial proposed course of action. His explanations were clear, concise and offered in a friendly manner – even with a sense of humour to break the ice! He went out of his way to be accommodating. His approach to administrative matters was reliably prompt. I found Mr Awad to be thoroughly professional, considerate, humane, and totally without the sense of attitude sometimes associated with some medical professionals. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mr Sherif Awad’s services.
LS Gastric Bypass 2014
MR AWAD HELPED ME ACHIEVE MY GOALS BY DOING MY SURGERY, I CAN’T THANK HIM AND HIS TEAM ENOUGH.
I had a gastric bypass (nearly 5 years ago) and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made for myself and my husband. It’s not an easy decision and shouldn’t be made if you aren’t willing to stick to the rules 100% for the rest of your life (they are there for a reason and you would only cheat yourself if you didn’t stick to them). Family need to change around you too as you can’t do things like you did before I.e all you can eat Chinese evenings out (I don’t go to these as it’s a complete waste of money). I don’t miss these nights out, others find it harder that I won’t go but that’s their issues, not mine.I don’t enjoy what I used too, I like bike riding now but I can’t go bike riding now as I’m pregnant. One of the reasons I had the bypass was to become a mum and Mr Awad helped me achieve my goals by doing my surgery, I can’t thank him and his team enough. Having a gastric bypass is not a...

HE IS AMAZING AT WHAT HE DOES AND A TRULY LOVELY PERSON WHO CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS
I decided I needed to act on my weight that was seriously starting to effect my day to day living, taking my kids out, feeling low in myself. I started searching all different surgeons and luckily for me i found Mr Awad..!!! I sent over a online enquiry and within half an hour i was speaking to Mr Awad who asked me my reasons for wanting surgery etc, he made me feel at ease from the minute i spoke to him and helped me decide on the surgery that would best suit me and my life style. I didn’t need to think twice about it and booked it there and then. I got the confirmation and was booked in just 2 weeks later, on the run up to my surgery I had calls of all his team making sure I was ok and if there was anything I needed. I travelled up to The hospital on the 9th may 2018 ready for my operation on the 10th, I went over to the hospital on arriving had bloods and other tests done before meet...

TALK TO MR AWAD AND START THE REST IF YOUR LIFE NOW!
My Story. My name is Sarah, I am or was a fat person. Four years ago I weighed 25 stone 5 lbs. I don't know how I got this fat, it just sort of happened. A combination of over eating, eating the wrong foods and drinking too much wine. One morning, despite trying every diet going I thought, my fat and ugly shape is not going to define my life. Stop me trying new things, stop me enjoying my family, stop me starting a new relationship and most importantly stop me living a healthy life not one that was slowly killing me. I went to my local GP determined this was a once and for all effort. I was motivated, eating a healthy diet and confident I could conquer this issue of yo yo dieting. The GP referred me to The Derby Royal Hospital. The bariatric team were excellent. Two years ago I had a gastric band fitted, all worked well until a year ago it slipped and had to be removed in an e...

NOT ONLY IS HE A PROFESSIONAL BUT VERY CARING!
I first spoke to Dr Awad over the phone and the minute I spoke to him I felt very comfortable with him he was very helpful and very honest with me. When I met Dr Awad he made me and my husband feel very comfortable and it felt like he was not just a doctor but he actually cared about me. He made sure we understood everything and that if we have any questions he was here for us. He visited me before and after the surgery to make sure I was ok. The care that he and the team took of me was great. Not only did he made sure I was ok but he was also made sure my husband was ok and how he was feeling . I would recommend Dr Awad and the Tonic team to take care of you.
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic Surgery for Small Bowel Obstruction
EXCELLENT BEDSIDE MANNER
I had to have an emergency surgery for a small bowel obstruction. Mr Awad explained everything I needed to know about my operation and condition very clearly and answered any questions I had whilst in hospital and after at the follow up appointment. He has an excellent bedside manner and was very honest but reassuring.
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic-assisted Oesophagectomy
I WOULD HAVE EVERY REASON TO RECOMMEND MR AWAD AS A TOTALLY COMPETENT AND CARING SURGEON.
I have recently had an Oesophagectomy following diagnosis of Barretts Oesophagus. The post operative histology of the Barrett's showed early cancerous cells. So I am delighted to know the operation I elected to have was the right decision to make. Right from the initial meeting prior to the operation, Mr Awad gave me clear concise details of what would happen during the operation and post operative stages of the procedure. After the operation and subsequent recovery, the rate of progress towards eating and drinking has been as predicted and very successful. I would have every reason to recommend Mr Awad as a totally competent and caring surgeon.
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy with cholangiogram
I WOULD HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING MR AWAD TO ANYONE AS A COMPETENT, CARING SURGEON.
I have recently had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed by Mr Awad. From my first consultation to the day of my surgery Mr Awad treated me with the utmost care, respect and consideration. He explained everything about the surgery and postoperative care in detail and answered any questions I had. He has a wonderful bedside manner that helped allay any nervousness I felt prior to the procedure. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Awad to anyone as a competent, caring surgeon.

MR AWAD HAS SAVED MY LIFE AS SURELY AS IF HE TOOK MY HAND AND LED ME FROM THE LAKE I WAS DROWNING IN
I had bariatric surgery under Mr Awad two months ago, and since then my life has changed more than I could have believed. For the first time in over 15 years, I have welcomed the new year with hope and a sense of excitement. Going into my first meeting with Mr Awad I was extremely nervous; I had said so many negative things to myself about asking for this surgery that I was expecting them from him too. But from the moment I met him I felt at ease; more importantly I felt respected, which I had not expected. I could not have imagined a kinder, more compassionate surgeon and not once during the process of having the appointments and the surgery itself did I feel looked down on or uncomfortable. Mr Awad’s job as a surgeon is a technical and physical one, but I feel that in the case of bariatric surgery it is not just the surgeon’s skill but their approach to you as a person that makes the...

THIS IS PURELY DOWN TO MR AWAD’S EFFORTS AND BEING ABLE TO GIVE ME BESPOKE ADVICE DURING OUR CONSULTATION!
My final decision to have my operation was only made after meeting Mr Awad. I found him to be really personable and approachable. He put my mind at ease on a number of matters. He was frank and honest with me regarding my health and the various benefits of surgery versus diets. My initial consultation was both informative and useful as Mr Awad was up to speed with my medical history, using facts and figures as well as images to demonstrate the benefits of each surgery option for me. Sharing his knowledge and expertise with me directed me to choose a different surgery to what I had initially envisaged. This is purely down to Mr Awad’s efforts and being able to give me bespoke advice during our consultation.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR AWAD AND HAVING THIS PROCEDURE TO ANYBODY
Underwent Heller's Myotomy (keyhole) with Mr Awad for achalasia last May, and my eating has been almost perfect ever since. I didn't suffer any pain whatsoever following the procedure and couldn't be happier with how it went. Highly recommend Mr Awad and this procedure to anybody suffering with this condition.
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic-assisted Oesophagectomy
THE WHOLE TEAM WERE FRIENDLY AND REASSURING. THANK YOU
Cancer is a very frightening word. Mr Awad, while not minimising the risks of my operation, managed to calm my fears. He listens, talks to you in language you can understand and by his very positive attitude makes you feel more positive about your situation. Even though he must be extremely busy, he never gave that impression, no question was treated as trivial. His secretary was also extremely helpful and quick to respond to queries re medication from my GP. The whole team were friendly and reassuring. Thank you.
A patient at Nuffield Hospital Derby - Hernia repair
WOULD I RECOMMEND MR AWAD TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY? YES – WITHOUT HESITATION BUT PERHAPS MORE IMPORTANTLY WOULD I WANT TO USE MR AWAD AGAIN IF THE NEED AROSE – YES – WITHOUT HESITATION
Mr Awad is professional, caring and he listens but above all he has a sense of humour which comes to the surface once all the serious stuff is out of the way. Because of the odd fashion in which my health care provider works I ended up seeing 2 consultant surgeons with Mr Awad being the second one. I consider myself to be very fortunate that Mr Awad was the second one because of the very professional manner in which he carried out the investigations prior to committing himself to the surgery. Finally, would I recommend Mr Awad to friends and family - YES – without hesitation but perhaps more importantly would I want to use Mr Awad again if the need arose – YES – without hesitation. So if you have an appointment with Mr Awad in the near future try you will be in safe hands, he is actually a nice guy who knows what he is doing.

I HAVE NEVER MET ANYONE LIKE HIM, HIS PASSION FOR HIS JOB & THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF HIS CUSTOMERS IS PARAMOUNT.
Dr Awad undertook my gastric sleeve surgery on 3rd January 2019, I have to say, i have never met anyone like him, his passion for his job & the safety and health of his customers is paramount. He is absolutely 100% professional, kind, caring and patient, he explained everything to me in such detail that I could be sure to make an informed decision before going ahead. I've contacted a couple of times post op, direct by mobile with questions and he has responded very quickly, nothing is too much trouble for him at all. Thank you.

THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE
I had my operation to remove my oesophagus in June 2017, four and a half months ago. I am 82. I have made a very good recovery - I went my first five mile bike ride last week. I am working in my workshop some days and have just made a park bench seat for my daughter. I was in hospital for two weeks. When I got home I had a regular phone call from the nurse specialists to see if I was OK. Since I had the operation I have lost two stones but my weight has now stabilised at 12 stone 2 pounds. I can go out for a meal now and I just have one course. No problem. The care I received from Mr Awad has been very good. He visited me about every day in hospital and gave me confidence in a time of need. My overall experience of the hospital, operation and aftercare was first class. The NHS is worth every penny. Thank you for saving my life. Peter Walters, Crich.

I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR AWAD WHO TREATED ME WITH CARE AND UNDERSTANDING.
The first time I met Sherif Awad he put me at my ease straight away. He listened to me and told me what he needed to do. He operated on me by taking my gall bladder out and repairing a hernia at the same time. I can highly recommend Mr Awad who treated me with care and understanding. Thank you Mr Sherif Awad very much.

MR. AWAD IS INDEED A DEDICATED CLINICIAN, COUPLED WITH A WONDERFUL APPROACH TO PATIENT CARE
I have recently been under the care of Mr.Sherif Awad and as such, it gives me great pleasure to record (unreservedly) my great appreciation in respect of the care afforded to me during a difficult time undergoing major surgery and a difficult post operative recovery period. during my hospitalisation, I received wonderful care from this Doctor in each stage of my illness to which I remain forever grateful. Mr. Awad is indeed a dedicated clinician, coupled with a wonderful approach to patient care. During my hospitalisation,he ensured I received total continuity of care by himself and his entire team. To place into words my admiration for this clinician does not perhaps do justice to the gratitude I owe him for me being here today! In the last 24 hours I attended his out-patient clinic and was seen by Mr. Awad personally. Needless to say, he was charming and informative, explaining in det...

IN MY OPINION A TOP MAN WHO EXCELS IN HIS PROFESSION
As soon as this doctor speaks to you he gives you confidence. He telephoned my wife immediately after my operation and has visited me every day during my stay in Derby Hospital. In my opinion a top man who excels in his profession and I feel lucky and privileged to have had Mr. Awad as my surgeon.
A Carer at Royal Derby Hospital - Laparoscopic-assisted Oesophagectomy
WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL TO HIM FOR THE EXTENSION TO MY DAD'S LIFE.
Sherif operated on my Dad in June 2017, after a nail biting round of tests to stage the cancer and assess fitness levels for surgery. Sherif told us from the beginning what a massive operation my Dad was facing, which helped to mentally prepare the family. He was so compassionate and drew our attention to the mental challenges which lay ahead, not just the physical toll the surgery and recovery would take. On the morning of the surgery, Sherif talked to my Dad and family again, about what was going to happen. He then rang me at eight o'clock in the evening when he had finished, to say that Dad was in recovery (after six hours in surgery) and being well looked after by the anaesthetist on the team. We were so enormously grateful for the call, and to hear Sherif say that he had done 'a good cancer op' - he had removed everything he could see that was physically possible to remove. He said...

MR SHERIF AWAD IS THE BEST MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL I HAVE BEEN TREATED UNDER.
Mr Sherif Awad is the best medical professional i have been treated under. His honesty and explantion of the procedure he did on me was to to the highest standard possible. His personalilty and demena take away any worries or pressure you have before surgery. His surgery skills and post op detail to aftercare is brilliant. I would reccomend Mr Awad to anyone regarding bariatric help.

I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND SURGERY BY MR AWAD AND HIS TEAM.
I would absolutely recommend surgery by Mr Awad and his team. I felt comfortable from the very start. Mr Awad took time to explain everything about the surgery months before I even committed. I paid and was having my operation in August 2018. Due to a condition I was unable to go through with it in August. I was worried about losing my money I had paid. But I had reassurance from tonic that I could delay or cancel without losing much at all. I hadn’t counselling and lots of people contacted me prior to the operation. Dieticians. psychotherapist. Aftercare team. Physio. After I got the all clear I booked up for 20th December I live in Devon and had a chauffeur service from Tonic to door to the hospital and back. Excellent drivers too. I arrived at 6am taken to my own room on a private wing of the hospital. Where I had a pre assessment. Nick the anaesthetist reassured me as I was panicking...
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital - Cancer Surgery
VERY SIMPLY, I CAN'T PRAISE HIM OR THANK HIM ENOUGH FOR WHAT HE DID FOR ME.
I consider myself to be a very lucky man. When I needed the best help at the most critical period of my life, Mr Awad appeared just at the right place at the right time. This man has been with me every step of the way since the day I was diagnosed. He told me what to expect on the day of the op and how difficult the recuperation would be and how determined I would have to be. This information is appreciated and acted on with each passing day. Most importantly of all, I consider Mr Awad to be a fantastic surgeon. After the surgery he told me that he had to work very very hard to remove all of the tumour and that it was an extremely difficult process. Thank God he persevered. I owe this man my life, simple as. After the procedure he took the time to contact my nearest and dearest and explain what had happened, which was very thoughtful. Now I am home and recovering arrangements are being m...

I MADE A GREAT RECOVERY DUE TO THE EXPERTISE OF MR AWAD AND THE TEAM HE SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH.
Attended a Bariatric Surgery open evening at Derby Royal Hospital and Mr Awad was really informative on the different types of weight loss surgery, without being pushy or judgemental. I decided to go ahead with a consultation and ultimately booked in for Gastric Sleeve Surgery. My Surgery day was scheduled quickly - again I felt very informed of the process by Mr Awad. The Surgery itself was fine and I wasn't in too much discomfort afterwards, Mr Awad checked up on me after surgery and before I was discharged and checked I had all the information I needed. 6 days following my surgery I contracted norovirus from my brother and was re-admitted to Derby Royal Hospital. Although this was unrelated to the surgery Mr Awad came to see me and consulted on my care to ensure everything was ok with the sleeve. I really appreciated this re-assurance and made a swift recovery. in regards to recovery...
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital.
NOT ONLY WAS HE KNOWLEDGABLE BUT YOU COULD FEEL THAT HE CARED EVEN THOUGH HE WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE.
I first spoke to Mr Awad on the phone and I was very surprised at how nice, calm and to the point he was. He really took the time to discuss with me the possibilities, the challenges I had faced in my past, the challenges I still faced, what I thought, letting me talk and exchange with him really truthfully - with an incredible openness. He proposed several solutions, also went into the details of the positive of me having the surgery as well as what the implications/complications could be. What I appreciated and really spoke to me is he never said it would be a "fantastic" surgery, or the most amazing thing of my future life, he explained and rationalised the great positives but also the possible complications gave me space to make my decision and think it through for myself. I wanted to meet him face to face as even though we spoke on the phone, I needed reassurance of who was about to...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR AWAD BECAUSE OF HIS DEDICATION TO THE FIELD OF ALL THINGS BARIATRIC COUPLED WITH A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE
Having decided to undertake the gastric sleeve at a young age (21) the initial consultation with Dr Awad was a very informative one. Information about each surgery including banding bypass and the sleeve was given in layman's terms, after the initial consultation and information that Dr Awad had given to me and my parents, I felt confident enough to book the date of my surgery for the 29th November. On the day of my surgery, I was greeted by the amazing nurses at the Royal Derby Hospital who made the stay a very comfortable and enjoyable one. Dr Awad visited me and my parent before the surgery his calm demeanour and ability to explain the different steps of the gastric sleeve procedure made me and my parents feel at ease knowing we have the right person for the job. Almost 2 months post op and I am down nearly 4 stones. With Dr Awad's help and Tonics aftercare the process has been an e...
A patient at Royal Derby Hospital.
DR AWAD WAS PROFESSIONAL, EXPLAINED IN GREAT DETAIL AND QUITE THOROUGH.
I first met Dr Sherif Awad in August and he made me feel comfortable, whilst providing me with the most devastating news. My weight was out of control and I was on the cusp of being diagnosed with diabetes. I was basically eating my way into an early grave. I was so upset as I was not aware that my weight had gotten so out of control. However, Mr Awad reassured me that all hope was not lost. We discussed the myriad of weight loss options and finally agreed on the gastric sleeve. Dr Awad was professional, explained in great detail and quite thorough. I felt at ease and confident in his skills to undertake the surgery. On the day of my surgery Mr Awad was equally the same, he came in and explained the pros and cons, he outlined the procedure. I was a bit scared but I took comfort from the wealth of knowledge that he possessed (after carrying out my own independent research) and although I...

I FELT LIKE THE CARE I RECEIVED WAS INCREDIBLE, AT ALL STAGES I FELT MY WELFARE WAS PARAMOUNT
On my first consultation with Mr Awad, I just had a great feeling, his voice was so calm and professional and he answered any questions I had. I booked in with him and quickly received support from his team at Tonic to prepare me fully for my journey. On the day of my op, I was picked up by a fabulous Tonic chauffeur and was met by a strong team of nurses that instantly I felt at ease with. Mr Awad came to my room in The Royal Derby Hospital and explained the operation and any risks etc, and I just felt so happy that I was in such genuinely safe hands. I can’t rate this man enough. I then met the anesthesitist and shortly after went down for surgery. Mr Awad phoned my partner as soon as the op was complete (something I wouldn’t have even thought to ask but he offered) Later that day, Mr Awad came to my room to check on me. The next day came, and Mr Awad came to my room twice, once...
