Mr Kahn did a SLAP repair end July 2020 for a massive labral tear in my left shoulder. 6 months later post-physio my shoulder is pain-free, completely mobile and going from strength to strength - I couldn't be happier with the result. Thank you Mr Khan!

Thank you for your feedback and kind comments. Clear explanation is vital to patients feeling at ease. My role is not simply to make a recommendation or give treatment, rather to share with my patients the information and knowledge they need to make an informed decision about their injury/problem.

Amer explained everything to me perfectly and felt very safe and confident having the procedure done.

Thank you for your feedback and comments. Clear explanations are vital to patients understanding why I make my treatment recommendations and what they then need to do. The surgeon and patient are a team and we achieve better outcomes when information is shared and we work together.

Thank you for your kind feedback and comments. Each patient is different, not one is the same. Patients may sustain similar injuries but the impact the injury has on an individual cannot be generalised. I strive to ensure each patient knows they are an individual and their treatment plan is specific to them and their injury/problem.

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!

Thank you for your detailed feedback and kind compliments. I strive to achieve the best for all my patients, listening to what they hope to get from treatment and then I work with them and the multi-disciplinary team to achieve the best outcome possible. A patient who is committed to their rehab and who engages at each step helps to make the job of the surgeon easier. 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.

Thank you for your feedback and kind comments. When a patient sustains a serious injury it is my responsibility to explain the consequences of the injury an the options available to the patient. I strive to do this for all my patients from the most complex to the most common injuries. As a patient it is important that you are listened to, have your questions answered and that you clearly understand what the plan/recommendations are at each step of the journey towards your recovery.

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.

Many thanks for your feedback and positive comments. The surgeon, patient and other team members are all key in achieving a good outcome. It is when we work together that the best outcome is achieved. Playing contact sports again with a stable shoulder.
