    About

    As Foot and Ankle Lead Surgeon at Guys and St Thomas' since 2005, he nurtures a caring skillful approach to managing patients, something he has taught 15 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 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.

    I was not in a good place when I saw Sam Singh, after a car accident. However, he was such a lovely man, who explained everything clearly and even found a fracture in my foot that the NHS did not see. I would highly recommend him as he is friendly and wonderful!

    The most supportive, reassuring and talented clinician I have encountered in 50 years. After a serious ankle fracture (not operated on by him) he has restored hope of a favourable outcome after a year of dubious recovery. He also has a keen sense of humour which is very welcome when you don't have much to laugh about!

    I immediately felt confident with Sam and he quickly put me at my ease. His experience and knowledge meant that he was the correct person to select to operate on my ankle. ( He also came recommended to me by other consultants) . He gave me all the time I needed during the consultations and explained everything very carefully. The operation went well and I am now on the road to recovery. If you have ankle problems Sam should definitely be on your shortlist to contact.

    I have seen Mr Singh a number of times over the last few years and every consultation and pre and post operative conversation has been such a positive experience. He explained the procedure so clearly and took time to chat about normal life as well. He has made a stressful situation so much easier. I can’t praise him enough and my feet look amazing!

    Mr Sam Singh has recently operated on both my feet. He has been polite and thoroughly professional at all times during my outpatient appointments and surgical procedures. My questions and concerns were always answered fully and promptly and the surgical corrections to my feet were explained in detail. I am very pleased with my "new" feet and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Singh to anyone who is suffering from foot problems.

    I had a non union fracture for 5 months prior to seeing Mr Singh. I was concerned that it would not mend. Mr Singh explained my options very clearly and gave me the space to answer questions. He advised could help to correct this with surgery. Mr Singh is very personable and I had complete trust in him. The surgery went very well and my leg is fixed!

    Sam is a great colleague and a highly skilled consultant orthopaedic surgeon. We have been working together within NHS and the London Bridge Orthopaedics for many years. Over years I have referred a huge number of patients to Sam, and all of them were very happy with his care and treatment. I would highly recommend Sam to any patient.
