    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.

    Knee Arthroscopy Knee Cartilage Surgery
    Recurrence of the cartilage defect treated in the past is something that constantly haunts you and once it happens it becomes a significant source of anxiety. For me, the critical aspect was deciding whether I should go back to my birth country to the familiar surgeon or take a ''risk'' of finding a new surgeon in the UK. After hours spent on diligent search for a potential surgeon, reviewing multiple bios and uncountable number of reviews, Mr Khan's profile stood out due to extensive experience, expertise in cartilage preservation and interest in biological preservation as well as conservative non-surgical treatment of injuries. While I am not an athlete myself, his experience in treating athletes during the London Olympics and afterwards also reassured me that it is unlikely that I will be suggested to drop all sports & dancing activities that mean so much to me. These are the key factors why I chose to see Mr Khan in the first place. From the very first appointment I knew I was incredibly lucky to find Mr Khan - his credentials speak for themselves in terms of his expertise and I can only confirm this to be very apparent when once one starts discussing the symptoms and potential causes of these, but, more importantly, Mr Khan's confidence, clarity, professionalism and attentiveness is what made me proceed with the surgery under his care with no further doubts. Generally, the only requirement/expectation for a surgeon I have is the knowledge and skill to ''fix me''. Being under Mr Khan's and his team's care, however, proved to provide a lot more than that. To start with, Mr Khan patiently dealt with a high number of questions and concerns I had (following lots of ''research'' done in advance of the appointment to combat the anxiety, which I realise makes me the patient of every doctor's nightmares!). His explanations were crystal clear and he made sure to manage my expectations in terms of the purpose and possible outcomes of the surgery both at the time of appointments as well as right before the surgery. The amount of time he spent explaining what has been done during the surgery (and a lot was done...!) was something I have never experienced in the past and made me truly impressed by the importance he places on information sharing with the patient. While I am yet to begin physiotherapy, I already feel confident it will be well-overseen by both the recommended physiotherapist and Mr Khan himself, which is very reassuring knowing that post-operative care and physiotherapy is critical to the outcome of the surgery involving cartilage repair. While in response to my shy attempt to thank Mr Khan and his team he humbly suggested he is ''only doing his job'', I would like to use this review to disagree with that. The kindness, courtesy, attentiveness, empathy, warmth and care I have received both during the surgery and appointments definitely extend beyond what constitutes "only doing the job'' and left me in awe of Mr Khan and his team. I can only hope Mr Khan and his team does not exhaust themselves while providing such fantastic care to their patients. I cannot express how glad I am to have found Mr Khan and while I hope I will not need further surgeries in the future, knowing that I have this great surgeon to go to for a consultation puts me at ease and significantly reduces the anxieties I have regarding the future of my knee. I highly recommend this fantastic surgeon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Mr Khan supported me though a difficult and challenging time. I had very little understanding around the seriousness of my injury and Mr Khan took the time to discuss the injury, treatment options and time scales. His depth of knowledge, approach and manner enabled me to regularly leave the appointment room feeling encouraged by my progress and confident with what we had to do next. I thank Mr Kahn for all his help, support and efforts throughout my treatment.

    Mr Khan operated on my shoulder. He worked out the issue that others had not. Fantastic doctor who really cares about his patients. He explained everything clearly and involved me in all the decisions about my treatment. Now I am pain free, have a stable shoulder and back to playing contact sports! His PA, Jess, is also super helpful. Thank you Mr Khan.
