“From the moment I met Mr Ajis, after a long and difficult time with a non-healing fractured ankle, I knew I was in the very best hands. From the initial diagnosis through scans, complex surgery, post-operative care and now sign-off but not dismissal, support and help with the beginning of rehab Mr Ajis has been outstanding. I cannot thank him enough nor speak more highly of him. A wonderful surgeon and brilliant consultant.“

I had two unrelated foot operations performed by Mr Ajis. Both surgeries were successful, and I found Mr Ajis to be an excellent surgeon. He also explained in depth the procedures, and outcomes. I would highly recommend Mr Ajis for any surgery in his respective field, and I thank him for his expert services.

I have been under the care of Mr Adam Ajis, for the last two years, following a broken ankle, I have had two surgeries plus steroid injections, in January of this year he recommended that I try a Plasma injection, this is not covered by my insurance unfortunately as it’s not proven to help with my particular problem which is arthritis in my ankle. I proceeded with the plasma and paid for this myself. I am amazed at the outcome of this procedure, which is: I am completely pain free (which I haven’t experienced in almost 3 years since my accident) I also have gained almost full movement and now walk without a limp. It’s early days but at the moment I have been pain free fir five weeks now and I am delighted with this result.

Simply brilliant. Mr Ajis always puts your mind at ease and explains procedures in plain English. His post-op advice is always first class and his new app is actually quite useful. Having benefited twice in recent years from having Mr Ajis as my surgeon, I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Mr Ajis.

I had been suffering from arthritis since 2015 and had an unsatisfactory experience with an NHS specialist. I looked at Mr Ajis website and was impressed and decided to invest in a private consultation. This was very professionally conducted and set out three options, I elected to go for an Ankle Arthrodesis and the procedure took place at Goring Hall in November 2018. After several weeks in a plaster cast I was reviewed by Mr Ajis in January 2019 and was provided with a support boot for a further six weeks. At each stage X-rays were reviewed. Over the following year I slowly increased my exercise regime and am now running again and playing short tennis. Most importantly I am now completely pain free!

Very pleasant manner and comfortable to talk to. After the consultation I did want to know more about the procedure than initially given but this was provided promptly via his secretary. I was pleased he was able to reassure me about fitness to ski so soon post op (though I misunderstood the 2week interval was for bandage and stitch removal rather than recovery!) My post op experience was excellent as virtually pain free, just a bit stiff and uncomfortable from bruising, not surprisingly. The only disappointment of the entire process was having to wait 4weeks after the MRI results for the op because he was so busy. I took this to mean he was in high demand, partly due to so many patients taking private treatment now but also for his surgery skills, which I have now experienced myself. I was rather dubious about the My Recovery App, as I am not great with these things and probably shouldn’t have tried to read it while I was still recovering from anaesthetic! However once I went through the exercises with my physio and got used to it, I have found it very useful and it helps to stay disciplined. Happy to recommend Mr Ajis based on my experience, without reservation.

Mr Ajis was extremely efficient in diagnosing my issue and the various different solutions available. Having agreed that surgery was the most optimal solution (after due consideration and a time period during which Mr Ajis remained responsive and helpful) I was quickly scheduled for the procedure and the whole process was smooth and efficient. It was a day surgery which went well extremely well, followed by 2 weeks of rest (elevated leg) and then 4-6 weeks of physio rehab. Everything happened at Goring Hall and my recovery was extremely quick. I'm 57 so age wasn't helping! Two months on from surgery I am fully recovered and the original pain symptoms have completely gone. I can't imagine a more efficient and professional consultation, procedure, and rehab process than that provided by Mr. Ajis and his team at Goring hall.

After what had been a very unhappy experience over three months under NHS care, when an Achilles' tendon rupture had deteriorated rather than improved, my first consultation with Mr Ajis left me feeling confident, hopeful, well informed and cared for. Over the course of my treatment Mr Ajis was frank and open. His explanations of my condition, and the options available to me, were clear and concise. His professionalism and knowledge was apparent, returning to me the confidence and trust that I would finally recover. The reconstructive surgery I needed was explained to me in detail and I'm pleased to say has been successful. The aftercare I received was exceptional and I always felt that I could contact Mr. Ajis promptly through his excellent secretary or the hospital whenever I had any concerns. I had not believed that I would be able to walk properly ever again and I had lost my trust in doctors, Mr Ajis has given me back both my mobility and my faith in the medical profession. I cannot speak highly enough of Mr Ajis's (and his team's) professionalism, expertise and courtesy.

I am playing golf again and with my hobby of walking , I'm up on the South Downs way again. I'm very pleased with with the result of my ankle operation and would recommend Mr Ajis and all the staff that I came in contact with at the N.H.S. St Richards Hospital Chichester .

After 6 months of acute Achilles tendon pain and my NHS GP taking no action other than instructing me to rest / re-frame from physical activity I was referred to Mr Adam Ajis via my private medical cover. My experience has been excellent from the very first appointment where I was diagnosed as requiring operations on both (quite a shock to me), throughout to where I am today, fully recovered and just about to return to sport after 12 months. Mr Adam Ajis always provided a clear explanation of what was happening, why and how. Always able and happy to answer my questions when they arouse. I felt Mr Ajis really understood my concerns and helped guide through the past 12 months. I really appreciated the fact that after both operations Mr Ajis came to see me the morning after to talk through how the operation had progressed. This for me, a man who likes to always be in control and clearly could not be in this situation was a great help.

I knew Mr Ajis had a good reputation as a surgeon and I was not disappointed! He explained the Achilles repair procedure fully and provided excellent care whilst I was admitted. During my subsequent follow up visits Mr Ajis goes to great lengths to make sure you understand each stage of the recovery and it’s down to him that I have made such a quick recovery. Nothing is too much trouble and I know I can refer back to him if I have any queries. I would highly recommend Mr Ajis and I thank him for such a successful outcome.

Mr Ajis identified what was causing my discomfort at my initial consultation. He immediately arranged an appointment to have my procedure completed. On the day of my operation he met with me to explain the process. He fully explained my procedure from start to the finish and my recovery time. This made everything clear and understandable.

I went to Bognor War Memorial hospital on the advice of my GP practice because I had pain in my foot and could not walk properly. I was advised an M R I scan and to go back for a referral by my GP. I was then advised only physiotherapy could refer me. Physiotherapy told me that it would be months before I was seen if I was ever seen. I turned to Mr Ajis. He immediately knew the problem and his diagnosis was correct verified by MR I a stress fracture of the cuboid bone . He offered me a new operation filling the fracture A sub Chondroplasty. Prior to the Op I wore a boot to help me walk. A week after the operation I continued with the boot. I gradually mobilised and three weeks after the operation went on holiday. I needed assistance at the airport. 3 1/2 weeks later on my return I needed no such assistance and was walking comfortably. Eight weeks postop I do at least 10,000 steps a day and consider myself pretty much back to normal . Thank you Mr Ajis.

Our son has learning disabilities and we were all very nervous about how our son was going to re-act to his treatment. We made Dr Ajis and his team aware of his difficulties and the service we received was excellent. Everyone engaged with our son in an exceptional way making sure he was ok with every eventuality and cared for him in such a lovely way. I am also sure that they will never forget him as he related to all staff in a very lovely manor. All credit to the team at Goring Hall the operation went very well and the result was excellent.

Although I had to wait several months before my total ankle replacement surgery, I am very pleased with the result. My operation was explained well by Mr Ajis and from the time I came round in recovery afterwards, I have experienced no pain at all. Prior to the operation I was in considerable pain for many months, so to be able to walk pain free now is wonderful. Post operation was limiting with a plaster case for three weeks and then the special boot for another five weeks, but at the end I can walk normally and without pain. I am now undergoing phyiso to strengthen my muscles and look forward to long walks again. I can only express my thanks and gratitude to Mr Ajis and his team for the new life this operation had given me.

Mr Adam Ajis has been an excellent consultant from my first appointment and throughout. I felt very assured I was in good hands, he had been highly recommended to me from friends and glad he was my consultant. He explained everything so very clearly and was there for any questions after my op. Sandra his Assistant was also super helpful. Nothing was a problem and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him. Any injury is daunting and he fully understood and was with me every step of the way.
