"Mr Skillington is an exceptional surgeon. He is passionate, highly skilled and has very caring bedside manners. I couldn't hope for a better specialist for such a complicated procedure. I was well when I was diagnosed with ascending aortic aneurism and bicuspid aortic valve. It was a shock for me. Peter managed to repair my bicuspid aortic valve, replace the ascending aorta, repair the enlarged aortic root and close the VSD. Couldn't say in words how grateful I am to him. My recovery was very speedy and I was practically back on my feet within a few weeks. I am generally a fit and active person. Three months after the surgery I was walking up the Kings Canyon in NortuerIf you need heary surgery, I strongly recommend Mr Skillington. 😊"
