    After 4 years of foot pain and poor diagnosis, I finally found an excellent consultant. Adam had carefully read my notes, and after thorough examination, was able to recommend the right course of action. His description of the necessary procedure was clear and kindly given, and immediately built up my confidence in his clinical skills. My experience of Adam’s surgery has furthered my trust in his abilities. I found he had excellent attention to detail, and during my follow up and recovery period I felt very well supported. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone requiring foot or ankle surgery.

    I saw Mr Lomax a few years ago in his NHS clinic, I was not in a position to undergo surgery at the time. Luckily I was able to see him privately, from my first consultation in October to discharge in February the whole experience was brilliant. Mr Lomax was reassuring and professional throughout, he made some scary sounding surgery feel like a doddle. My recovery has been amazing and he has been there to answer any questions I have had. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopaedic surgeon.

    From my first consultation with Mr Lomax in September 2020 to being discharged this week , February 2021, I have been treat in a very professional and caring manner. Mr Lomax took the time to listen to my foot problems and carefully explained in words I could understand how the operation would be done and what the recovery would entail. I have found him to be very patient, kind and understanding and has a thorough knowledge of your feet. He is very approachable and no question is too much for him to answer. On the day I had my operation he reassured me all would be well. Follow up consultations were also reassuring that recovery was being made. All my contact with Mr Lomax and the Spire was done during these difficult Covid and lockdown times. In spite of all this all appropriate safety measures were taken and at all times I felt very safe. It would be lovely to have a proper conversation with Mr Lomax minus us wearing masks!

    Internal fixation removal. I am extremely grateful to Mr Lomax for his patience and kindness and his skill as A surgeon. I had metalwork in my foot that had started to cause considerable pain, and needed removing. I was incredibly confident in Mr Lomax after my consultation, because he was so honest about the possible outcomes of the surgery. Thanks to his skill I have a considerably improved range of motion and I am pain free. Thank you so much Mr Lomax

    I felt very comfortable in all my dealings with Mr Adam Lomax. He took time to explain everything that he would be doing and why, as well as detailing the different options of the treatment. Mr Lomax always answered all my questions fully and allowed me time to relate aspects of my experience. I would definitely recommend him to others.
