"We will never be able to adequately thank you for helping to restore our daughter’s finger to its original beauty. It was simply amazing that you were able to sew together such a small digit. As professionals ourselves, we appreciate that one is not always thanked, even when the outcome is successful. We shall be eternally grateful to you for the operation you performed for our daughter."
"Dear Sonja, I just want to say a big thank you for everything you have done for me over the last few years. Having the pain taken away from my hands is marvellous. Hopefully I won’t need you again, but I know you will be making a massive difference to many others! Thank you."
"I 68 years old and a cabinet maker, I amputated my thumb in a workshop accident in January 2017. I was immediately taken to St Georges, where, about three hours later, Ms Cerovac and her team commenced replanting my thumb. The care I received in all departments at St George’s was exemplary both during my stay and since in after care. I feel that the care and attention given to me greatly enhanced my positive attitude towards recovery. I started back to work in a small way within weeks and now I am operating full time as normal, and while working I rarely notice that I have damaged my thumb..." >>
“Dear Sonja, thank you for your openess in helping me, your kindness and your time – and for the occasional joke in the operating room to calm my nerves. I have infinate gratitude for all your support.“
“Seen very promptly by Sonja Cerovac. After a fall I sustained a large cut on my nose. Wound was still open 6 days after being sustained. After initial consultation on morning of 8th May she fitted me in for corrective surgery the same day. Amazing. 12 days on the dressing and sutures removed by Sonja. To my amazement there is virtually no visible scar. Her work is incredible I couldn’t be happier. Best money I’ve spent in years. Thank you."
“Following a most unsatisfactory and uninspiring referral to St Helier Hospital, I was fortunate indeed to be referred to Ms Sonja Cerovac. She inspired confidence from the very first moment with her knowledge and professionalism. I would have no hesitation in referring any one requiring hand surgery to make a point of seeing her.”
