“Sam instills confidence, efficiency and capability. His explanations are very clear, he responds promptly, and the results are (so far) very encouraging. He set clear goals and managed my expectations at each stage. London Bridge Hospital has a new standing X-ray machine which provided Sam with the best possible information on my ankle condition.“

    For 15 years Sam Singh has been the lead Foot and Ankle Surgeon at Guys and St Thomas', a leading UK teaching hospital.

    As well as being regarded as one of London's leading Foot and Ankle Specialists, nine other Foot and Ankle consultants in the South East have trained directly under him through the 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 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 did a fair amount of due diligence among my contacts in the London medical community before deciding on Dr Singh for this procedure. He immediately impressed me with his knowledge, experience and ability to communicate the nature of my problem and what needed to be done to rectify it. At no time was I not 100% confident that I was in good hands (literally). I would highly recommend him to anyone for this kind of medical treatment

    I am extremely happy with Mr Singhs approach and professionalism. He recently performed a bunion surgery on my right foot. All the information supplied during the consultation and prior to the operation was accurate and I received everything I needed to know to prepare for the procedure and the recovery afterwords. All my queries were responded to promptly either by Mr Singh or his secretary Elia.

    From my first consultation with Mr Singh my experience has been great. He and his team kept me informed of what was going to happen - what the benefits and risks were and what options I had. He gave me additional information and allowed me time to do my own research before committing to the surgery. The bunion and foot correction operation went as expected with no complications and was pretty much exactly how he had explained it to me. I experienced very little pain after the surgery as well. I have had years of pain in my right foot and difficulty finding comfortable shoes. I am now 8 weeks post op and am walking, wearing shoes and driving again and my foot is so straight I still think it belongs to someone else! While I still have some way to go to my full recovery I am absolutely thrilled that I picked Mr Singh to do the surgery and would highly recommend him to others.

    I had a great experience being treated by Dr Sam Singh from the initial consultation throughout my bunion surgery and post-op consultations. He has been transparent throughout the whole process and made me feel confident about my decision to go for the surgery and about my post-operation recovery. He’s always been reachable online or he called me back when I had urgent questions. He’s been friendly and efficient in all consultations. I felt I could trust him which is very important for me as a patient. I wouldn’t hesitate to be treated by Dr Singh again if required. Thank you
