“I really couldn’t rate Mr Klinke more highly. The care I received from my first consultation, my operation and follow up was excellent. His calm manner and informative advice manner made the whole experience very reassuring and I had complete confidence in him. His bedside manner was extremely good too. The attention I received by the nurses and porters on the second floor of the hospital was wonderful too. “

    Mr Martin Klinke is an orthopaedic specialist in foot and ankle problems but also holds a qualification in sports and exercise medicine 

    He graduated from medical school in Frankfurt and received his master’s degree in Sports Medicine from the University of Nice.

    He completed his post graduate Orthopaedic training in the major teaching hospitals of Germany and Paris, followed by a specialised foot and ankle fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. In 2001 Mr Klinke worked for a year with Professor Hinterman, a world-leading specialist in ankle replacements. In 1999 he also received the qualification in sports and exercise medicine.

    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    Over many years I have had several surgical procedures carried out on my ankle following the original problem of snapped ligaments. The most recent operation carried out in Feb 2020 was unsuccessful and I was advised I would need an ankle fusion as the ankle joint was destroyed which would mean carrying out the complicated procedure followed by 6 months in plaster. I was informed that there was a significant chance that the bones would not fuse, and the procedure would need to be repeated followed by another 6 months in plaster. At this point I decided to find an ankle specialist to get a second opinion, I found Mr. Martin Klinke and arranged a consultation. Mr. Klinke listened to the issues I had and fully understood what pain I was going through. Following Xrays and an examination Mr. Klinke reassured me that I would need an ankle fusion and went on to say that he had never carried out a procedure where the ankle had failed to fuse and furthermore, he would expect me to be walking in 4 months without pain. I am now 4 months on since the operation I have returned to work, cycling and walking our dog for approximately 1 hour a day which is the first time for approximately 4 years. I really cannot thank Mr. Klinke enough for the life changing procedure he has carried out on my ankle. I have subsequently recommended Mr. Klinke to several friends and colleagues. I would also like to thank Mr. Klinke’s secretary Gay Munn for assisting and guiding me through the process and answering all the questions asked.

    From start to finish, I have had every confidence in Mr Klinke whilst treating my ankle injury. Thankfully I haven’t required surgery, but I wouldn’t have any qualms in trusting him had that been necessary. He is great at putting you at ease whilst explaining outcomes and treatment plans in a clear and accessible manner. All of this, combined with his ability to recall small (seemingly minor) details between appointments and his professional, yet very affable nature, mean I can’t recommend him highly enough.
