I’ll soon be back on the football pitch doing what I love!


Dear Ian, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and your team for everything you did for me since I came to you just over a year ago. Your reassurance and expertise were second to none and your knowledge filled me with confidence since our first consultation. You talked me though... Continue reading

I’m amazed and blown away with the brilliant result!

 Total Knee Replacement

I am so pleased with the result of my knee replacement operation. It is impossible to put into words how good it is to have one of my legs strong again, with muscles working properly. I have crawled about for so long, I had forgotten what it was like to have a leg functioning properly. I find... Continue reading

Mr Peter Hill

Mr Atkinson’s care was exemplary. I would highly recommend him

 knee osteotomy & knee replacement

Having had knee problems since my early forties, I had already seen four knee surgeons when I was referred to Mr Atkinson. He listened, immediately understood exactly what my problems were and the issues they caused. He laid out clearly all the options available to me, giving me a precise understanding of the advantages and... Continue reading

I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. McDermott to anyone considering potential knee surgery

 Knee surgery for Medial Plica Syndrome

I am a keen cyclist and began experiencing pain in my left knee at the beginning of 2019. Having been through over a year of physio, steroid injections and an inconclusive MRI scan, my physio recommended I see Mr. McDermott to explore surgical options. The initial consultation with Ian involved a physical examination followed by... Continue reading

My grateful thanks to Mr Ghassemi for straightening out my toes!

 Multiple toe straightening

I am writing to express my grateful thanks to Mr Ghassemi for his excellent skills during an operation to straighten out my toes. Having suffered for years with claw-like toes, my foot feels dramatically so much better even though it may take a further few weeks to settle down completely. Mr Ghassemi is such a warm...

Mr Atkinson’s care was truly exceptional. I simply could not be happier.

 Keyhole Surgery Synovectomy

I simply could not be happier with the whole experience, from the very first initial consultation, right through to the level of care and commitment Henry Atkinson shows his patients. I was diagnosed with synovial chondromatosis and Mr Atkinson utilized his skills to surgically remove a vast amount of the synovial tissue, which had built... Continue reading

My recommendation for the excellent Mr Ian McDermott!

 Knee injury

Having sustained a debilitating knee injury in the spring of 2020 (through what I was led to believe was an exercising injury), I sought the assistance of a home physiotherapist. I was fortunate enough to find and be treated by Aimee Higgs, a Senior MSK and Sports Physiotherapist, who on checking the injury was not... Continue reading

A massive thank you to Mr Chandrashekar. I’m so grateful he was my surgeon.

 anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) reconstruction (Bostrom Repair)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Mr Chandrashekar for my surgery. I’ve never been so well looked after in my life! The whole experience was incredible and I’m so grateful he was my surgeon and consultant. I was really nervous about staying at London Bridge Hospital, and the whole process of surgery...

I would highly recommend Mr Atkinson

 Achilles tendon reconstruction

I have seen Mr Atkinson on two occasions and would highly recommend him. I initially saw him for Achilles tendon reconstruction surgery and more recently for advice on tendon inflammation (unrelated issues). For both issues, Mr Atkinson displayed a high level of patient care. He thoroughly explained issues, procedures and follow up actions to me.... Continue reading

It feels an immense privilege to be able to play the piano again, 100% completely pain free! Huge thanks to my surgeon, Mr Mark Phillips


I’m a professional pianist and a number of years ago, I was practising Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto and I started to get pain in the base of my left thumb. As the years went by, I started to experience similar problems in my right hand. Then in 2016, something serious happened. Very suddenly the final... Continue reading

Mr Chandrashekar completely revitalised the treatment I was receiving. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and can’t wait to go for long walks again, swim, and start running again!

 Internal Fixation

Meeting Mr Chandrashekar completely revitalised the treatment I was receiving. I broke my fifth metatarsal in the autumn running down the stairs preparing for a trip abroad. Ironically, I was visiting shoe factories, as I am a footwear designer. Three months passed with little significant healing. The treatment I had received before seeing Mr Chandrashekar...

I’m on top of the world and for the first time in my life it’s pain free!

 bilateral custom-made knee replacements

It’s now 2 and a bit years on since I had both of my knees replaced with you. I’m on top of the world, having skied already last year and again this week. For the first time in my life it’s pain free! I play tennis, golf and trek a lot. I’m in the gym... Continue reading

I would highly recommend Mr. Chandrashekar. Thank you for the excellent work you have done on my foot!

 Bunion correction

Five months ago I had a surgery to get fixed my longtime neglected bunion that eventually caused nerve inflammation and toenail deformity. Yesterday, my final X-Ray confirmed the excellent result. It would have confirmed earlier, if not for lockdown. The fact that my first appointment was arranged with Mr Chandrashekar was a pure luck, as... Continue reading

I am eternally grateful to Mr Atkinson for his care

 Achilles tendon repair

My experience of being treated by Mr Atkinson is similar to what other patients have said about him in their reviews. He obviously and clearly has the surgical skills to perform surgery, but it’s his personality, warmth and communication that stands out even more. All the way through his consultancy, Mr Atkinson was able to... Continue reading

Mr Phillips is a very caring doctor. It’s been such a relief to get things sorted!


Mr Phillips is a very caring doctor and has an excellent bedside manner. He was the third consultant I’d been to, because the problem I had was so unusual, others wouldn’t deal with it and referred to other specialities. Mr Phillips was prepared to operate and it’s been such a relief to get things sorted!... Continue reading

This was the best consultation I’ve had to date, despite it being on video call. Thanks to Mr Chandrashekar’s expertise, I’m now on an appropriate path

 2nd opinion

Prior to coming into Mr Chandrashekar’s care, I’d been been dealing with a long running ankle issue. Due to current restrictions on travel, my first consultation took place via video conferencing. First, he took the time to walk through my medical history and his friendly manner encouraged me to ask every question I had on... Continue reading

Wholeheartedly recommend Mr Atkinson to anyone who requires an orthopaedic consultation

 Knee replacement

My 92 year old father has been visiting Mr Atkinson regularly for several years and he has asked me to leave this review on his behalf. He has always found Mr Atkinson to be very helpful, kind, considerate and efficient. He always takes the time to listen to my father and to explain any treatment... Continue reading

The operation was a huge success. I could not be happier with Mr Makki

 Labrum repair

I was referred to Mr Makki in late December 2019 as I was experiencing glenohumeral subluxation of my right shoulder, most likely due to the fact I have boxed for 15 years. This meant some natural arm movements were difficult and some even resulted in painful dislocation. Mr Makki quickly diagnosed a torn labrum and... Continue reading
