Read the recommendation of a patient who had complex reconstruction of both his ears and hearing with Mr Hamilton
" Having my middle ears destroyed by tuberculosis as a one year old in 1952, I have suffered very poor hearing and persistent ear infections since. This despite several efforts over time to establish new ear drum to seal the ears."
"My inner ears functioned well, with bone conduction tests showing almost normal capability and I dreamed of the time skill and technology could fix the mechanical parts of my ears.
Up until I became aware of Mr Hamilton, no surgeon was prepared to undertake the task as they felt the damage was such that it was not possible.
Mr Hamilton under took the task, rebuilding my middle ear cavities and inserting prosthetic hearing bones. Now I have significantly improved hearing and sealed ears. I have had no infections since the work was done and it has been a life changing experience for me.
I will always remain indebted to John Hamilton for his great skill in carrying out the work – but also for the way in which he did it. He always kept me informed of the risks and probabilities associated with each stage of the work.
I believe his work is at the leading edge of what can be done and I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone, including my own children, if they needed his help."
