I had an inguinal hernia in late 2022. It has been about a year since Prof Chris Berney fixed the hernia by inserting a mesh with keyhole surgery. Since then I have had no issues and the hernia and the pain have completely gone.Originally, there were some delays getting to see other surgeons; I don't think my problem was seen as high priority. We found Chris' profile online at the end of November and booked an appointment. Overall, he was very friendly and gave me a lot of opportunity to ask questions. Prof Berney was very good and rapid with the surgery plus check-up being completed prior to Christmas. It was a relief going into 2023 with everything fixed.I had cover from my private health insurance and the procedure was done at Waratah Private Hospital. Chris is slightly more expensive than some but I got a very good result and will not hesitate to contact him again if I need any future surgery for other problems.
My Father is an elderly person aged in his mid-80's & he underwent a complex procedure for major stomach surgery back in early 2022. My family were previously referred to Dr. Berney prior to knowing all about his work & we can only express our most highest regard for his expertise & quality customer care towards his Patient's & their loved ones - this is in relation to both past & present that we have spoken with. My father has recovered 100% well for a person his age & is most grateful for Dr. Berney's level of care he received before & after his major operation. My family continue to look forward to seeing him again for our future consultations.
I thank God because putting me in honest handsI will put for him million of Gold starsThank you professor BerneyNahla
Dr is great, thankful I found him.Just expect to wait 1-2 hours after your appointment time in the office, I'm not sure why they don't book out 45 minutes per client.
Prof Berney was very professional, caring and informative. He answered all my questions and concerns and performed a great surgery with all complications aside. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends
Amazing at his job, I had bilateral hernias and a complicated anatomy. Prof Berney did the job and I feel great, thank you so much, really glad I found you.
Very professional, smiling, trusting, knowledge, good communication,very highly recommend 🙏🙏
I’m so grateful that I found a great specialist. I was suffering for such a long time and now all the issues are gone. Not only a great surgeon but such a lovely person as well . Thank you so much

After visiting 3 other Surgeons Hernia Specialists I organised a review with Prof Berney as I had watched his procedures on YouTube and read a fair amount about him Google etc. His reviews also provided me some optimism that he could fix what other couldn’t.Previous to my visit I had provided Dr Burney with recent Ultrasound /MRI / Reports / Pathology etc…. I wanted him to be as informed about my condition as possible and provide me (like the others) his expert surgical assessment.My initial meeting with him was tough love -“Stop smoking - lose weight and I’ll do my best to fix you !” He was very respectful - and honest with me. He didn’t sugarcoat anything and advised me of all of the risks of this complex surgery.I believed Prof Berney was my best option of success given the 4 surgeons I had consulted. He explained his approach in detail that I could understand and took time doing so.After accepting Prof Berney’s terms I booked in for surgery.I returned to him and underwent BTI day surgery @ Waratah Private - this was pain free. I rested at home for the next 2.5 weeks, lost a little more weight and returned for the big day.Surgery day came around quickly and I couldn’t wait- Botox had done its job and back was killing me - tummy wax like jelly.I underwent a 5 hr plus marathon procedure - Laparoscopic/open extensive adhesiolysis (cutting & removing Adhesions), with mesh repair of incision hernia, partial excision of old mesh, neurovascular flap repair - rejoin rectus muscles etc…..Operation was problematic as I had extensive intra-abdominal adhesions with small bowl loops, transverse colon and greater omentum plastered against my abdominal wall. 15 x 9 cm incarcerated recurrent Hernia successfully repaired - previous abdominal scar excised and new mesh secured.Abdomen all sutured up and may allow me future Baywatch / Bondi rescue appearances ?? Honestly the scar is better than I’d expected - 100% better than before.I remained in hospital under Prof Berney/ Dr Moollan’s watchful care. Absolutely minimal pain if any experienced throughout.Post surgery 2 months (wearing Binder), I’ve had my 2nd review and all going very well and I have gone from a 2XL to wearing a Large pair of trousers. I can bend / twist move, walk pain free. Tummy is firming up due to the Botox wearing off.Thank you Prof Berney / Dr Moolan and Dr Leggett for agreeing to conduct surgery on my broken body. You have not only delivered but exceeded my expectations- thank-you for taking away the pain, cramps and sleepiness nights.
I have been patient of Dr Berney for about 20 months. I had a paraoesophageal Hiatus Hernia; with no symptoms or pain just low iron count.I had it repaired 16 months ago, experienced no pain after the surgery and was allowed home on the fourth day after the surgery.Dr Berney has very good communication skills, explained everything and when speaking to my son after the surgery was very informative about how the surgery went.He is a very experienced surgeon, and he follows-up the surgery with regular check-ups. I was in good hands.I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Prof Berney operated on me twice for a hernia - once 6 years ago, and on the other side recently. Both surgeries were done with great skill, professionalism and care. Prof Berney is a real gentleman and has a warm and very encouraging manner. Highly recommended
My mum, family, and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Professor Berney for his kindness, professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge, assertiveness, reassurance, and skill when he operated on my mum early August 2023. Professor Berney went above and beyond his duty of care, ensuring the wellbeing and safety of my mum.Truly Professor Berney was a Godsent doctor, an expert in his field and we cannot recommend him highly enough.God bless you Professor Berney.
My wife was in Bankstown hospital following a severe gallbladder attack. She was admitted under Dr Berney and after being in hospital for a week she did not want to have the gallbladder removed straight away and so she went on to a waiting list. She had a few more mild attacks and was then able to have the gallbladder removal surgery. She was very grateful to Dr Berney for fast-tracking her operation after waiting for close to three months. The operation went very well without any complications and was discharged the following morning. She recovered very quickly and hardly had to use any pain killers. Two days later she was in the club enjoying food that she was unable to eat prior to the gallbladder surgery. She was very thankful to Dr Berney for his skill and ability and that there was no scarring.
Prof Chris Berney operated on my 89 year old dad who had a hernia repair & appendix removed. He did a great job. We were very happy with how the procedure went. He explained everything thoroughly and was very kind & gentle. Would definately recommend him to family & friends. Great surgeon. Thank you Prof Berney.
I would like to thank Prof Chris Berney and his team for looking after me when I had my para-oesophageal Hernia operation in May 2018 I recently had my follow-up five years later and he was very pleased with the result and no further complications were found. I would highly recommend Prof Chris Berney to anyone who maybe needs this operation, he is a master in this field and you can be confident in his ability.
Dr Chris Berney is a wonderful and kind surgeon. He performed my gallbladder removal operation and he was very patient with me and wonderful. The operation went very well and I feel great. Would highly recommend ✅
I am a 78-year old male who recently underwent surgery for two hernias using laparoscopic or keyhole surgery by Dr. Chris Berney. The operation was minimally invasive using 3 very small holes in the abdomen which healed within a week with outstanding results - I was back playing golf within a month and experienced no pain from the procedure. I stayed only one night in hospital and was home the day after the surgery. I highly commend Dr. Berney to anyone needing surgery for a hernia and am testimony to the fact that laparoscopic surgery is suitable for healthy older individuals for the repair of hernias.Patrick Mannix
Dear Professor Berney, I can’t thank you enough for the special, excellent care you have provided and for the unique gift you are to your patients. Your compassion and kindness was truly appreciated! You are amazing, and I am grateful you are my surgeon and I am under your care. I pray that God’s blessings are upon you! I also want to extend my gratitude to your wonderful team. You are remarkable human beings. It’s obvious you love what you do because you are very good at it. May God continue to bless you and your families.
Professor Berney's manner, professionalism and expertise put all my concerns to rest. The patient care I received before, during and after the surgery was exceptional. I would also like to comment on the quality of service and professionalism provided by Morgan was fantastic.I made the correct decision in regards to my surgery requirements and extremely happy with the results.
Dr Berney is the absolute best in his field his skills, kindness and care is phenomenal and I can’t thank him enough for fixing my dad. He operated on my 75 year old father who had a complex hernia on his stomach (15x21cm) with absolute precision and care. My father had waited in a rural hospital for over 2 years for the procedure, when it came time, they realised it was too large and dangerous to undergo in a country hospital. My dad was then referred to a private doctor who quoted him over $50k for the surgery as an out of pocket fee. Desperate for a better outcome, I did some research and called Dr Berney. I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life. Dr Berney is extremely knowledgeable, honest , efficient and highly skilled. The team is fantastic at communicating all the steps and procedures leading up to surgery. The hospital provided excellent care during the surgery considering the size of the hernia. After care was exceptional. Dr Berney is a master craftsman and I cannot recommend him enough for someone that you love.
After being hospitalized 5 times and seeing another gastrointestinal Dr I went to Prof Berney after he had operated on my Mum years earlier . Boy am I glad that I did . Every Dr I'd seen in the past 12 months were unable to help me and didn't know how to help me . Within 5 mins of talking with Prof Berney for the first time he knew exactly what needed to be done .Prof Berney performed a colectomy and fixed what no-one else could . I ended up spending 6 weeks in hospital , not due to surgical complications in any way , Prof Berney was there every day and did everything he had to to get me back on my feet .This is one specialist who actually CARE'S. He's not only a fantastic Dr , he's a fantastic person . I don't have the words to express how thankful I am , the Professor saved my life .You're a lucky person if you choose Prof Berney to be your Doctor , you won't find anyone better for all aspects of your treatment , he is a great man .Thanks for everything Prof Berney .
Professor Christophe Berney is the ultimate professional who takes great pride in his work.Professor Berney always made sure i was comfortable and he always asked if i had any questions to which his answers always put me at ease.Professor Berney took his time thoroughly explaining the procedures and the steps, not once did he try to rush me.Professor Berney gave me alot of confidence hence why i chose to go ahead with him for the surgery, he was my second opinion and luckily i got that second opinion.The first surgeon i got referred to didn't give me that confidence, hence why i got a second opinion.Professor Berney and his team were great pre-surgery, during surgery and post-surgery.It was my first inguinal hernia operation and as a self employed business owner i didn't need any more stress or anxiety.I just wanted a smooth, hassle free operation and consultations without any added stress and thats exactly what i got by seeing Professor Berney.Professor Berney and his staff were always polite, respectful and very friendly.I highly recommend Professor Berney to anyone considering operating on a hernia or any other surgery that he might do.His experience is second to none the Professor is a pioneer of his industry.Thanks again Professor Berney and teamGod bless 🙏
Dr Berney was very professional and easy to understand he explained everything perfectly I feel perfect 100% again thank you Dr Berney
My name is Carolyn Adams, I am a 75year old woman of a solid build, and I consulted Dr. Chris Berney for symptoms of an inguinal hernia.Dr. Berney operated laparoscopically on my hernia. My recovery was rapid with no complications. In fact I was back leading my normal life within a very short time and within five weeks went on an adventure cruise to a remote area of the Kimberly. Iam very happy to have been able to have had laparoscopic surgery as opposed to open surgery.
Wonderful experience with Dr Chris berney. He was a wonderful and charismatic surgeon, the staff was always helpful and kind. They ensured I had a smooth prep, surgery, and follow-up highly recommend .
Towards the end of 2022 I was referred to Dr Berney for a hernia problem and arrangements were made for an operation which had to be rescheduled to early 2023 due to contracting Covid. Just before Xmas I experienced some abdominal pain and thinking it was hernia related, contacted Dr Berney who suggested I have an abdominal scan. Long story short, it was appendicitis and Dr Berney squeezed me into his list and operated the following day. Dr Berney explained after that the operation had some complications which he managed to overcome. Subsequently in February I had the hernia operation which went smoothly. Dr Berney's professional skills gave me an outcome for which I and my family were 100% satisfied and very grateful. He is also extremely approachable with a knack of explaining complicated medical issues in a way that you can understand. I cannot recommend Dr Berney more highly enough.
Professor Bernay is an excellent specialist. He is highly qualified and a very likeable person with a pleasing personality. My wife and I would strongly recommend him to anyone with medical issues in his field of expertise.
He is the best I'm 79 yrs old suffered with pain for a long time prof Berney fixed my problem.Highly reccomend him.
I’m a 75 year old man. I was referred to Prof Berney after being offered open surgery for a hernia that was increasing in size alarmingly. I was told that open surgery was preferred for older men but I wanted to opt for lapiscopic surgery. Prof Berney explained the advantages of key hole surgery for hernia repair and was able to put me his list the following week. The surgery was accomplished with the minimum of fuss, for me, though clearly with great skill by Prof Berney as I recovered with only minor discomfort in the first week. It’s now six weeks since the operation and I am not aware of any pain or discomfort at all and have resumed my full exercise regime of swimming, walking, running and weight training.
In my time of need I have had the very good fortune to be under the professional care of Professor C Berney to repair my hiatus hernia by laparoscopic surgery in December 2019, this was his last for that year and I was scheduled in to avoid waiting some time till he was back at work in 2020 and this was very much appreciated from my part.I cannot speak highly enough of the manner in which Dr Berney and his team, in the hospital and in the office, has taken care of me right from the original consultation and the operation pre and post.Dr. Berney called my son immediately after the operation to report the success and he also requested that my home carer come to the hospital to meet with him for special instructions particularly as regards diet.To date I have had yearly monitoring since then with excellent results. Dr Berney has always reported in detail and been forthcoming in providing written documentation and endoscopy images for my records.I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Professor Christophe Berney and his team to anyone requiring his professional expertise for surgery and on-going care.Sincerely Gordon Russell, 16/05/2023

Dr Berney is a wonderful specialist who treated me for gallstones & my mum many years ago for other issues. He genuinely cares about his patients & explains in detail the procedure & after care. I have recommended him to my friends & family. Thank you Dr Berney 🙋♀️🙏🏻
2023 - Recently I had an umbilical hernia fixed by Prof Berney. I know this is routine surgery, however I was petrified. Prof Berney took the time and explained everything to me, and through the whole experience both himself and his team are extremely accommodating. He really cares for his patient's. I can not recommend enough. As for my surgery, it went really well. I was up and about a few days after and back to normal activities within a week. It's not often you get someone as genuine as Prof Berney. 5 star.
My boy had one day surgery with Dr Berney . Have to say, he is very nice doctor. My boy was very nervous and worrying . After taking with him , he was relax a lot and also before the surgery he played the favourite music of my boy to try to relax him. Thanks DR BETNEY for all the help .
I got 2 hernia, they r all fixed by Dr berney, recovered all nice.He is experienced, friendly, and trustable. I high recommend him.Thanks berney for well done.
Prof Berney successfully repaired three of my hernia problems of different kinds and in different bodily locations over several years, in spite of great difficulties posed by a congenital medical condition. The surgery was sometimes very complex, but he rose to the challenge on every occasion, even using special surgical methods he had developed. I can recommend Prof Berney as a skilled, experienced and caring surgical practitioner who always explained the procedures and outcomes and has a great rapport with his patients.
I recently had my gallbladder removal surgery done by professor chris berney. He is very professional and due to his experience, he knew how to exactly deal with my complicated case...He is not only excellent but he is very freindly and caring I felt so comfortable asking all the questions I had and he explained everything to me . I highly recommend Dr.Berney and his team...you are in good hands if you are seeing him.Thank you Dr.Berney for taking care of me.
I am an 85 yr old lady that has suffered from gall bladder issues for a very long time.I was operated on by Dr Chris Berney and 3 weeks later am able to enjoy life and eating without any discomfort.Dr Chris is a gentleman who cares for his patients.I highly recommend him and thank you once again Dr Chris for your compassion and helping me get on with life without pain.Not to forget the lovely receptionist at Hurstville, Thank you
Dr Chris Berney has given me a new life. I suffered from extreme reflux for many years and was told I had a hiatus hernia and to take medication for it. When after 20 years I was on such high doses of meds and was short of breath, and low in iron ( due to a bleeding esophagus). I went to see Dr Berney, I was really stressed about the surgery and even said to him and his team don't let me die. After approx. 4 hr plus surgery I was with no pain and was home in 3 days. My stomach issues have gone and I have had 2 follow up gastroscopies and my hiatus hernia surgery has made such a great difference in my life. Dr Berney is very caring and will to listen, he even answered my call from icu when I was uncertain about something he has said on his daily visit.
I recently had my gallbladder surgery done by Dr. Berney. He is very caring and skilful. You are in safe hands if you are seeing him!
I have had a number of unsuccessful surgeries on my hernia and it wasn’t until I met Dr Berney that I felt like I was under the care of a doctor who wanted to ensure a successful outcome from surgery. From the first consultation, Dr Berney’s approach was caring and professional and he wanted to work with me to ensure the mistakes from previous surgeries were not repeated. I couldn’t be happier with the final result. Thank you Dr Berney and his caring staff for taking such good care of me.
I visited Dr. Berney late December and he referred me to another doctor. His receptionist meant to provide me referral later on the day. Due to her work load, she said that it will be faxed directly to other doctor and till now it has not been faxed. I had to call both surgery room back and forth to several time and I am still waiting for letter to arrange appointment. The receptionist is very incompetent and lame excuses. Additionally, no apologies for the inconvenience caused and spoke to me in an attitude tone. Seriously!! How hard is it to do her required duties in timely manner??😡😡
2 Hernias and a number of BCCs, over the years, it seems I am a regular of Dr Berney. He is a great professional, explains exactly what will happen in easy to understand language. I feel very safe in his hands. Evereything went well every time.
In my opinion Professor Chris Berney remains the consummate professional medical practitioner and a surgeon extraordinaire.I was very fortunate to have Professor Berney recommended to me when I discovered that I had an annoying Hernia that required immediate attention. I need to note that the Professor employs surgical skills that minimise pain, discomfort and scarring for the patient to ensure a short and swift recovery. I am pleased to attest to this fact having successfully undergone my own Hernia repair procedure without complications whatsoever.Further, Professor Berney demonstrates a 'genuinely', friendly pleasant, comforting and affable approach when dealing with the patient, before and post procedure. It is with total and unreserved confidence that I recommend Professor Chris Berney to any prospective patient.
Professor Barney is not only an excellent surgeon but caring, personable and very professional. I saw him for a hernia operation and he took the time to explain the procedure in detail and answer all of my questions. His support staff are also wonderful and ensured that everything ran smoothly from my very first appointment.
It's not very often you come across a great surgeon like Prof Berney. From first consultation through recovery and to last consultation Prof Berney displayed knowledge, experience with caring and friendly approach.Prof Berney is an excellent surgeon, gentleman and always has the time to listen to all concerns and offer valuable advice.Great job and keep up the good work.
I had inguinal hernia surgery and found Prof Berney and his team professional and experts in their field. I have been on blood thinners for a long time and my operation posed few risks. Prof Berney consulted with my other treating specialists to ensure operation was a success. He clearly explained the pre and post operation requirements and attended to any queries I had. I have had no issues post operations and highly recommend Prof Berney and his team.
Excellent professional! I recently had inguinal hernia surgery. I am very pleased with the outcome. With my existing health issues i.e I have been on blood thinners for some time.Dr. Berney consulted with my treating doctors to ensure all necessary precautions were taken to mitigate any risk. I found Dr. Berney friendly and explained all pre and post -surgery requirements clearly to me. Highly recommend Dr. Berney and his team.
Dr Berney has performed 3 hernia operations on me, all with excellent results. He is kind and very personable. I live in Canberra.
Dr. Berney is an excellent doctor, He makes you feel at easy with him and easily eased my fears, I would recommend Dr. Berney to anyone who needs surgery. The reception staff were lovely
Absolutely brilliant!Dr Berney is knowledgeable, caring and friendly. He takes the time to listen, respond to questions and provide the pertinent information regarding to the procedure.Having received such great care from him and his team, can highly recommend to anyone that needs professional care delivered with a patient centered approach 🙂
Couldn’t recommend Prof Berney more highly, so professional, thorough, kind, and caring. I couldn’t have been in better hands, and on top of that such a nice fella. Went in with 2 hernias and he found and fixed a third. Everything with the whole process was first class. Cheers Christophe
After three years of being in agony and no one being able to tell me what was wrong I finally met Dr Berney Without him i honestly do not believe i would still be here I was that sick. Thank you from myself and my family for everything you did for me. For the first time in three years i'm actually putting weight on and eating without being sick and generally feeling well. So again thank you😊I would highly recommend Dr Berney😊😊

"I could not be more pleased with Prof Berney's repair of my sizeable groin hernia."! His expertise and profound knowledge of his specialty is "Par Excellence." He has a wonderfully warm bedside manner and fills you with the utmost confidence in the procedure he recommends to repair a groin hernia. I had NO abdominal "black bruising," (that can occur) minimal post operative pain/discomfort and I healed beautifully in the quickest time.I would have no hesitation in recommending Prof Berney to perform surgery to successfully repair a groin hernia.
I had the good fortune to be operated on by Professor Berney 3 times in the last 7 years for my gallbladder and 2 hernias. From my personal experience I could not find one fault, he is an excellent surgeon and makes you feel like you are his only patient listening to any questions or concerns and taking the time to fully explain the procedures ahead. I would also like to add he is a very affable Gentleman. Professor Berney deserved everyone of the 5 stars I gave him for this rating thank you and God Bless.
As a regular patient, I found his service to be extraordinary. He was assertive, dedicated, and always considerate of my needs. He's a top-rated Upper-GI & Hernia Surgeon, and thankful to have had his services.
I have had many hospital admissions during the last 4 years due to my diabetes/thyroid issues, however, this year I had an added complication of a small bowel obstruction.After seeing numerous Gastroenterologist Registrars/Doctors, all of whom enter the room with a posse of students for them to sprout my symptoms and tell me they are looking into it, but not actually talking to me as a person, more so as one more patient to tick off their list of To Do items, in walked Professor Berney - my saviour!!!Professor Berney was from the very beginning the first (apart from my Endocrinologist) whom spoke to me like a real person and actually actively listened to me regarding my symptoms and concerns. I cannot express how calming and soothing he was.He too did not have all the answers at that given moment, but I felt safe knowing I was under his care. After a Double Balloon Colonscopy was completed and another hospital admission with small bowel obstruction complication, Professor Berney completed a small bowel re-section.Yet again, he was reassuring and I felt like I was in an expert's care. The surgery and follow up have gone without any further complications and all issues are now resolved.I honesly cannot speak more highly of Professor Berney. All of this professionalism, skill, personality and he is so handsome to boot!!! What more could you ask for?Thank you, thank you, thank you Professor Berney from the bottom of my heart.
I recently had my gallbladder removed by Prof Berney. He and his team were highly professional and really considered how to ensure my experience pre-op and post-op was as calm and smooth as possible, explaining the procedure, possible outcomes, and the post operative care. I had very little post-op pain and was up the next day!! Thank you Prof Berney...
Top notch. Uses the best hernia procedures and goes further - very aware of the materials any mesh or glue is made from , always biologically compatible. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my family members let alone anyone else.
Feeling fresh 6 months after surgery would highly recommend visiting Prof Berney.
From the first consultation, I found Prof. Berney was very friendly and easy to talk to.I felt comfortable with him to proceed with a Hernia operation, with his assurance that it would go smoothly and also due to his professionalism and expert knowledge.He explained everything very clearly.His follow-up after surgery was prompt and comforting.I would recommend him highly.
I recommend Dr Berney very highly, he is very warm, caring and approachable and extremely capable. He explained everything so well, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to him if the need arose, Rod Booker
It was very important to me to find a surgeon that had a caring bed side manner. Prof Berney more than delivered. I was suffering from chronic cholecystitis and was needing my gallbladder removed. From consult to recovery I was extremely well looked after. Prof Berney is thorough,personable and very down to earth. This operation has changed my life and I can't thank him enough for giving me my health back.(Elizabeth Sirhanis)
I have seen Professor Berney for a long time,he is more than an amazing surgeon and really cares about the patients, he is the best in his field, I would recommend him to everyone.
Dear Proffessor Berney, thank you for your particular care, kindness and competency in your approach to me and the recent hernia surgery. I found out about you from friends in the medical fraternity - they say you are the preferred surgeons surgeon. At all times I felt safe and that you were not in any way desensitised from the patients experience - the most capable person complimented by lovely manners. The brief from you prior to the anaesthetic was very reassuring too. Thank you so much for making this go from initial bewilderment to absolute breeze.Your sincerelyFerial R.

Thank you Professor Berney! Excellent results! I am extremely grateful for your surgical expertise on my laparoscopic ventrical hernia surgery.Some pain and bruising for the first five days which I was assured was normal and would subside...and it absolutely did.After my follow up and just two months after surgery, I am fully recovered. Only three small scars on my abdomen which will fade over time.Additionally, I can't thank Bankstown Hospital enough! The nursing staff and Doctors were exceptionally helpful and I must admit I had a very good day!Thank you all so much!
I had emergency surgery on my gall bladder, Prof. Berney was great. Professional yet attentive and took the time to explain the whole procedure to me. It was a complicated surgery but Prof. Berney's after care helped me to recover fully. He is a great surgeon and I'd recommend him based in personal experience.
Professor Chris Bernay., is a very professional and knowledgeable Surgeon. He did amazing work on my husbands wound. His kindness and consideration and follow up towards my Husband’s after care were outstanding. We feel very lucky
John De Leon

Prof Berney is personable, caring, understanding and very thorough. He listens and provides you with all he available options.I had a very complex surgery and was anxious about it.

Great advice, extremely thorough backed by a wealth of experience, putting your health and welfare as his number one priority.You are dealing with the steadiest of hands with Chris, very fortunate to of been under his care.

Adam El Cheikh
I am very impressed with qaulity and patient centred care i have recieved under the care of Professor Chris Berney. His approach is very optimistic and professional.
I can not thank Prof Berney enough. From the first consultation to surgery and post-op i was well looked after. Waiting for my surgery I could hear the surgeons assisting Prof Berney talk amongst themselves of how highly regarded he was in his field of expertise, knowledge and experience. That was when I knew I was in good hands.
Dr. Berney is a consummate professional. I was referred to him for a hernia and underwent laparoscopic surgery shortly after. Dr. Berney took the time during my initial consultation and following surgery to answer every question I had, in detail. Nothing felt rushed or clinical. In fact, we spoke at length on a few occasions and his interest in both my recovery as well as continually improving this specialty field was evident. I don’t know the intricacies of surgery, but I believe his skill and technique is excellent. Notwithstanding what I expected post-op, I was up and moving the next day and good to go by the fourth. Most importantly, I haven’t felt any residual pain since. I’d highly recommend Dr. Berney.
Dr Chris Berney and his staff are great! He has excellent bedside manner and explained my procedure in an easy not to technical manner
I have had surgery recently performed by Prof Chris Berney and his team at Waratah Private hospital. From the initial consultation, in hospital and with all my follow up visits I have felt well informed, comfortable and supported.Prof Berney has a lovely manor, and no question goes unanswered. His directions for a good recovery are clear and precise.I am very glad to have been referred to him
I had developed gallstones which caused very painful gallstone attacks. I decided to see Prof. Chris Berney as my surgeon to perform a cholecystectomy (Gallbladder removal surgery). I am very happy that I did seek out Prof. Berney, he is a brilliant surgeon, very knowledgeable and kind. He took his time explaining the procedure in detail and is very caring.I did experience some uncommon complications post surgery and I am very grateful that I was under his care during this time. I have now made a full recovery and I can’t recommend Prof Berney enough, he’s the best in his field!
Professor Christophe Berney is a miracle maker he is a wonderful person have never met such a fantastic Professor/Doctor so caring, kind, polite and professional he explains everything so well and is easily understood, would never go to anyone else, he knows his stuff, forget the rest because his the best! Thank you so much Professor Berney.
I always take second or even third opinion before I decide who will do the surgery for me. After my first appointment with Profesor Chris Berney I was certain this is the doctor which I can trust. He is very professional, he listen patiently, he does not rush, he answers descriptively the questions, shows alternatives and present results of his previous patients. He visited me twice after surgery with full explanation. After four weeks from my surgery I started full exercises, riding bicycle and work in the garden. No pain and no sign of my physical bulging hernia. I strongly recommend Professor Berney. We need more doctors like him. Very happy patient - Andrew N.
Prof Chris Berney is absolutely a professional. From the very first time I met him while I was in pain, through the operations to now that I am fully recovered he has dealt with me in caring and friendly professional manner. I consider myself fortunate and blessed that Prof Chris Berney was the doctor who treated my hernia.
Very happy with Prof Chris Berney's service and procedure. Highly recomended.
I have recently been a patient of Prof. Chris Berney. I cannot speak more highly of his professional manner. I found Prof. Berney to be informative and would highly recommend him. His staff are also first class people.
