    Dr Malik has been terrific. Six weeks after my operation I was mobil with only minor discomfort, I was always told it would take time. The constant pain I suffered with for 3-4 years disappeared straight after the operation, the post surgery pain really was not a problem at all, I used pain relief for only three days. The Dr Malik gave me a hard time at the beginning to ensure I was fully informed and would allow myself the necessary time to heal following the correct process. There is definitely no benefit in rushing the healing period, you can't. Dr Malik has frequently taken time to enquire about my progress and was sincere throughout.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I underwent surgery for a 1st MTP Joint Fusion on my right foot on 16th February 2018. I was admitted to the Chiltern Hospital as a Day Patient. Prior to this I had visited Mr. Malik several times; he ensured I was given all information I needed to know in order to make a decision whether or not to have the operation. He was extremely patient and was able to explain in ‘layman’s’ terms what the operation would entail and the likely immediate symptoms and longer term considerations and now, 8 weeks after the operation I can confirm that he was right on the ball. On the day of the surgery Mr. Malik came to see me and again explained the procedure and asked me whether I had any questions. His extensive knowledge alongside his personable and agreeable approach really put me at ease and I felt I was in safe hands. Mr. Malik visited me again after the operation and reiterated instructions for when I returned home. I was prescribed pain killers and surgical stockings which I had to wear (bear) overnight due to a previous DVT. It was difficult, at first, to negotiate essential daily tasks on ‘one leg’ however, a friend had organised a ‘Stride-On’ for me and I had purchased a shower stool which I would highly recommend for anybody having this surgery – after a few days I was whizzing around on the ‘Stride On’ and putting no pressure at all on my foot. Mr. Malik prescribed Codeine to manage the pain and told me that I could also take Paracetamol however, after a couple of days I stopped taking the Paracetamol and after 6 days stopped taking the Codeine. For a successful recovery it is important to follow Mr. Malik’s instructions; being an active person I did struggle mentally with having to sit my foot elevated for 2 weeks however, I did as I was told and was extremely pleased to see how well my foot had healed two weeks later, on 06th March when the dressings were taken off. At this appointment Mr. Malik instructed me to keep my foot elevated the majority of the time and not to weight bear for at least another 4 weeks – again, the ‘Stride On’ helped me to manage some of the small tasks I felt more ‘up to’. I was always careful not to over-do it, I did not want to hamper my recovery in any way. I didn’t get on at all with the crutches, my balance is shot away. I returned to Mr. Malik on 09th April in trainers having been weight bearing for about a week. My foot and toe were still a little swollen but the scar had completely healed and I was in no pain at all. Mr. Malik was also pleased with my recovery. I am so pleased with the outcome of this operation and can absolutely recommend Mr. Malik to anybody who is considering this surgery or any other foot/ankle surgery who is able to access his services.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I had a subtalar ankle fusion last February at The Shelburne Hospital. Mr Malik was upfront and very clear about the complexity of the surgery, however I felt completely reassured and knew if I did as he said I would get the best outcome. Mr Malik was always contactable with any concerns I had which was much appreciated, I have never been able to have that sort of contact with a consultant before but it really made a difference to my recovery. A year on my foot has no pain whatsoever and I am able to walk, run and cycle as I did prior to my arthritis. Should I ever need foot/ankle surgery again I would hope Mr Malik would be able to undertake it and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

    Explanation (5/5)
    After breaking my left ankle 4 years and being operated on by Dr Malik, i was so happy with the results and recovery, that when It happened again to the other ankle, I wanted him to treat me again. Again the post x-rays look great (according to my cardio surgeon brother), and am hoping for a similar recovery. Am told it is more severe than last time and it’s early days yet but the signs so far are good. What I admire about Dr Malik, other than the outcome he has produced, is his can do attitude, ability to put me at ease, to answer my endless questions and concerns, even when out of hours, backed up with links to the relevant literature online. It’s still early days on this 2nd occasion but am confident he is advising me on the best course of treatment and recovery, following successful surgery, Thanks again

    "Ahmad is an excellent orthopaedic surgeon with a expert interest in foot problems. Like my interest in veins and leg ulcers it is a long neglected part of surgery but one that when well treated can transform patient's quality of life. He has provided very valuable support to my patients with painful foot problems. Moreover he has provided a superb personal service to large vascular surgeons who fall off their bicycles and trash their femurs!"
