Claire Savings – Admin Assistant

I am Mr Nishikawa’s Admin Assistant and responsible for processing sometimes sensitive, but always confidential, information regarding Mr Nishikawa’s patients.

What I enjoy most is the interaction with patients and looking after them throughout their journey with us.

Return Home the Same Day

The majority of cosmetic surgery at Hiroshi’s practice at The Westbourne Centre, is either carried out under local anaesthetic or a combination of local anaesthetic with sedation. This means that the recovery for patients from anaesthesia is rapid, meaning procedures that previously required a hospital stay overnight, can be carried out as a day case. With local anaesthetic and sedation, there is a diminished incidence of nausea and vomiting, and recovery is more rapid. This in turn diminishes complications associated with slow postoperative recovery, such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolus.

Multidisciplinary Care

Hiroshi works solely at The Westbourne Centre in Edgbaston, where he works alongside some of Birmingham’s most distinguished consultant anaesthetists and clinical nurse specialists. The entire multidisciplinary team is dedicated to the safe, high quality treatment and care of cosmetic patients. His caring, experienced and supportive team are here to assist you right from the very beginning of your journey, all the way through to your aftercare and beyond. Hiroshi never discharges anyone and believes that cosmetic surgery is a long-term commitment for both the surgeon and the patient. Hiroshi’s practice is committed to patient safety and care of the highest standards and when you decide to choose our practice for your treatment or surgery, you can rest assured that you will be offered outstanding advice, treatment, aftercare and support.
