“From my first consultation to assess my ankle, through consideration of treatment options, the decision on surgery, followed by attentive post-op care, I have found Mr Singh to be excellent in understanding me and my needs. The treatment has been exactly as he carefully explained and resulted in me being pain free and mobile again. He was highly personable throughout my treatment. “

    About

    Sam nurtures a caring skillful approach to managing patients, something he has shared with 16 other Consultants he trained through the specialist foot and ankle fellowship program he founded. 

    He graduated from Cambridge University, trained in Orthopaedic surgery in London and completed his training in Boston, USA. He is the only British Surgeon to have ever been awarded a specialist fellowship in Foot and Ankle Surgery from Harvard University. He was lead Consultant at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust from 2005 to 2022. 

    He offers the latest proven techniques for managing all Foot and Ankle disorders including: Ankle sports Injuries, ligament injuries, bunions and hammertoes, Morton’s Neuroma and tendon disorders, Arthritis of the foot and ankle, Achilles tendon issues, Plantar Fasciitis, and minimally invasive foot surgery.

    His commitment to giving patients clear and honest advice on recovering from injury or surgery led to his invitation to be be the senior editor on Bunions and Morton’s neuroma for the UK's leading patient resource, "NHS Choices." He also regularly publishes in academic and popular media.

    He is passionate about his work, delivering his patients their care in a reassuring manner with a sprinkling of good humour. He is among the highest rated doctors in the UK.

    He is a preferred provider of all insurance companies as his charges fall within their guidelines.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Patient seen for:
    Mr Singh explained my ganglion on foot to me and before I knew it he was marking it out ready to extract the lump from my foot. He called a nurse for assistance, injected around my ankle to numb it and then proceeded to extract the fluid that was in the lump. He explained the procedure to me all the way through. It was very quick and didn’t hurt too much. He dressed it, put a tubigrip bandage over it and I was free to go home. Whilst there I asked him for his medical opinion on a thumb that I thought might be broken. He sent me straight down to imaging, I had an x-ray and was called back into see Mr Singh. He confirmed that it was broken and so put a splint on it to help it heal back in place. I wasn’t expecting that at all so came away very happy at the experience Mr Singh had given me. He was very helpful with a good sense of humour and I am very grateful that he listened to me and treated me very efficiently.

    I have seen Mr Singh 6 or 7 times over a 10-15 year period regarding my ankles (bony spurs). He is extremely good I would highly recommend him. He is clearly at the top of his profession - he has seen and treated a lot of ankles! Based on my experience I have complete confidence in his diagnosis and his abilities. He is very personable, puts you at ease and clearly explains the diagnosis and treatment options. My father is also having problems (arthritis) with his ankles - I have told him has has to see Mr Singh.

    Even after all these years I still love doing bunions and they are some of the happiest patients. Just remember the foot will swell for a bit

    I was in extreme pain with Sinus Tarsi (with my GP wrongly diagnosing issue twice). Sam knew what the problem was, tried cortisone, but that was ineffective so operated. I am now free from pain and walking well again. I like his straightforward approach. His confidence and, of course, his huge experience gave me the faith in his solution.

    I think as doctors we sometimes underestimate how daunting surgery can be to a patient. Glad you are much better

    Achilles issues can be so tricky to manage due to the poor blood supply to the area, glad that you are doing well.
