    About

    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.

    He is committed to research and medical education. He regularly teaches at courses on shoulder and knee surgery including soft tissue sports injury, both nationally and internationally and has been involved in teaching Orthopaedic and Sports & Exercise Medicine Trainees.

    I saw Mr Khan on the recommendation of a friend and found him to be very thorough and clear about his diagnosis. He explained all my options and drew diagrams for me to take away. Mr Khan answered my questions and some. On the day of surgery Mr Khan reassured me as he did at all my appointments. I am pleased with the outcome - pain free and able to sleep at night again. Recommended without hesitation.

    Mr khan is a charming, friendly and experienced consultant who immediately puts your health concerns to rest. He clearly explains the options available to you and what they mean. Importantly, this includes the risks. The work that a surgeon like Mr khan does in the operating theatre is frankly awe inspiring. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopaedic surgeon, especially one focusing on some of the complex joints like the shoulder.

    I have been really happy with the care I've received from Dr Khan, from my first video consultation with him, my face-to-face appointment, right through to my surgery. He's been very approachable and friendly, responsive to my questions and has explained any medical or technical information really clearly, and the implications for recovery time etc. This has really helped the process for me, as I've not had any surgical operations or hospital visits before, so really helped to put me at ease. His medical secretary, Jess, has also been really helpful with initial medical information and knowledge, so I've been appreciative of both their help and expertise.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you for your feedback and comments. My team and I are here to inform, support and work together with patients to ensure that they feel confident in the decisions that they make about their treatment. In my experience when a patient is informed and supported it helps their recovery process, no matter how big or small the procedure/treatment, by working together we achieve the best outcome.

    Very nice, helpful and informative and answered all my questions fully, though I should perhaps have enquired more about expected pain levels post op. However, I have now been in touch about this and he has suggested I let him know over coming days/weeks (still early days). A printed sheet of post-op information might be helpful as there is a lot to take in and I found it difficult to remember it all in the interval between operation and check up 10 days later.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you for your review and feedback. I have been updating my patient information sheets and I apologise that on this occasion you felt you were not provided with more information about post-op pain levels. Following surgery, if any patient feels they are experiencing more pain than they expected or if they have a question about anything, I always welcome and encourage patients to contact me via my admin team so that any concerns or questions can be addressed and responded to promptly.

    I was very happy with my care under Mr. Khan. He was excellent in all regards. Very professional but friendly and kind. Extremely knowledgeable and clear and decisive about the treatment plan. He explained everything and was very patient with all of my questions. I never felt rushed. He put me at ease and the care was top class. In addition, his secretary is fantastic -- responsive and knowledgeable. She's able to answer all the questions in between appointments with Mr. Khan. Mr. Khan and his team were especially impressive given my treatment was during the covid pandemic with lots of uncertainty and constant changes, and I'm very grateful for the care I've received.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for your positive comments and compliments. I always try to give patients the information they need to enable them to make the right decisions for their circumstances. My admin team is here to support and help patients when I am not directly available. During the covid pandemic there has been constant change but the aim throughout has been to keep patients informed, so that together we can continue to work towards achieving the best possible outcome.

    Mr Amer Khan is an exceptional orthopaedic surgeon. His professional investigation of the injuries and problem areas were very thorough and considered. His knowledge and experience speaks volumes apart from giving the patient a sense of confidence when placing themselves in his hands. His ability to explain the issues in a simple to understand manner is a skill and talent not all medical professionals possess. Mr Khan is personable, approachable and engenders a high degree of trust. I would recommend him unreservedly.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you for kind review. I strive to ensure all my patients are fully informed and aware of all the options available which enables them to make informed decisions about their treatment. In my experience when patients are fully informed about their condition it increases the collaboration between the doctor and patient. Each patient has different needs and expectations; I try to work with my patients to achieve the best result possible, but this only becomes a possibility through open, honest and effective communication.

    Dr Khan went over and above to get me back on my feet. When I ran into an unplanned fluctuating personal circumstance where I had to move to Wales after our initial consultation, Dr Khan and his PA Jess went out of their way to make sure I understood my injury, help needed and what my options were. I was so impressed with his support that I continued with Dr Khan from Wales as other doctors I spoke to didn't show the same level of care and expertise which in hindsight could have left me at high risk of arthritis if I had gone with them instead. I'm now 6 weeks post surgery and starting to walk again with the support of crutches. No pain and confident I'll be back on my feet properly in no time. Massive thanks to Dr Khan and the team!

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you for your very kind and positive feedback. I always endeavour to cater to the individual needs of each of my patients and try to adapt to changing circumstances where I am able to. Helping patients to understand their options and the reasoning behind my recommendations ensures that they are fully equipped to make informed decisions about their treatment plan which undoubtedly helps with their recovery and rehabilitation.

    Mr Khan is always very patient and explains things very well in a non medical language which is always very helpful to a lay person as it then makes it easier for me as the patient to relay back to family and friends. He is also very good at laying out all options and choices of treatments available and advising which would be better and why.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Thank you very much for your positive feedback. I always try to explain all aspects of a patients treatment at each step of the way and am always happy to answer questions and to clarify or rephrase points. It is very important to me that my patients understand their diagnosis, their options and their treatment plans and that they are able to make an informed decision.

    I was told in the US that I needed a major operation with a recovery period of six months. I saw Mr Kahn who recommended a less invasive operation on my shoulder. It has been a great success and Mr Kahn was extremely,professional.

    Mr Amer Khan

    Many thanks for your positive feedback. Sometimes less is more coupled with understanding the nature of the problem and listening to the patient and what they want to achieve from any procedure. Informed decision making by both surgeon and patient to achieve a good outcome.

    Dr Khan provided me the utmost of care and highest level of expertise from my initial consult to post operative follow up as a patient. I underwent an MPFL knee reconstruction in the late Spring of 2018, and I always felt in the best hands with his professionalism and level of skill. I appreciated that he always took the time to explain my treatment options fully and answer my questions thoughtfully and insightfully. Dr Khan is the one of the best in his field, and I am very grateful to having been under his care. I continue to live a very athletic lifestyle as a result of a successful outcome of my surgery.

    This is the third time I have seen Mr Khan due to previous shoulder and knee injury. I had no hesitation in seeing Mr Khan for the new shoulder injury on the other side as the two previous operations went so well along with my rehabilitation following the operations. I am currently recovering from my latest operation and would recommend Mr Khan without reservation.
