Specialist's working hours
Mr Amer Khan was educated at Kings College London where he gained a 1st class honours in Physiology and Exercise Medicine before qualifying in 1994. He undertook higher surgical training in orthopaedics in South West England before completing subspecialist fellowship training in Shoulder surgery at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital & Knee surgery at Guys & St Thomas’ Hospital.
He was awarded the prestigious British Orthopaedic Association European Travelling Fellowship, gaining further subspecialist training working with pioneers in arthroscopic Knee, Shoulder and Hip surgery in Ghent, Lyon, Annecy, Nice and Toulouse before embarking on further fellowships in the USA and other European Centres of Excellence.
Later he was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in sports knee, shoulder and hip injuries in 2010 at the Homerton University Hospital, where he was clinical lead for the Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics and Joint Clinical Lead for Sports & Exercise Medicine.
His extensive career ranges to the London 2012 Olympic Games, where Mr Khan was a selected member of the knee team and provided acute care to injured athletes. He treated a number of athletes and performed their surgery at the Homerton University Hospital (designated hospital for the London 2012 Games). He coordinated the provision of a highly specialised multidisciplinary approach to their care securing their return to elite professional sport. Mr Khan continues to treat professional and semi-professional athletes from all disciplines as well as sports & fitness enthusiasts.
As a highly trained surgeon and sports arthroscopist (keyhole surgeon) working within a multidisciplinary team, he is particularly apt in avoiding surgery where appropriate. His expertise includes ACL reconstruction and novel ACL repair techniques, meniscal and cartilage preservation and replacement surgery, all ligament surgery including revision and all arthroscopic procedures to the shoulder and hip as well as Knee & Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery.

Thank you for your feedback and kind comments. A dedicated patient makes the surgeons role easier. Commitment to physiotherapy rehab and communication are key in achieving the best possible recovery from complex injuries.
Thank you for your feedback and kind comments. Clear explanation is vital to patients feeling at ease. My role is not simply to make a recommendation or give treatment, rather to share with my patients the information and knowledge they need to make an informed decision about their injury/problem.
Thank you for your feedback and comments. Clear explanations are vital to patients understanding why I make my treatment recommendations and what they then need to do. The surgeon and patient are a team and we achieve better outcomes when information is shared and we work together.
Thank you for your kind feedback and comments. Each patient is different, not one is the same. Patients may sustain similar injuries but the impact the injury has on an individual cannot be generalised. I strive to ensure each patient knows they are an individual and their treatment plan is specific to them and their injury/problem.
Thank you for your detailed feedback and kind compliments. I strive to achieve the best for all my patients, listening to what they hope to get from treatment and then I work with them and the multi-disciplinary team to achieve the best outcome possible. A patient who is committed to their rehab and who engages at each step helps to make the job of the surgeon easier. Thank you.
Many thanks for your feedback and comments.
Thank you for your feedback and kind comments. When a patient sustains a serious injury it is my responsibility to explain the consequences of the injury an the options available to the patient. I strive to do this for all my patients from the most complex to the most common injuries. As a patient it is important that you are listened to, have your questions answered and that you clearly understand what the plan/recommendations are at each step of the journey towards your recovery.
Many thanks for your feedback. I try to explain the diagnosis, options and aim of treatment recommendations to my patients. This empowers them to make informed choices and to feel confident about the decisions they are making with me so that we can achieve the best outcome possible.
Many thanks for your feedback and positive comments. The surgeon, patient and other team members are all key in achieving a good outcome. It is when we work together that the best outcome is achieved. Playing contact sports again with a stable shoulder.
