    Ligament reconstruction Ankle replacement Arthritis (Ankle)
    Due to an injury, I had a very painful and unstable arthritic ankle joint severely affecting my quality of life for over a year and a half. I was increasingly feeling frustrated and desperately wanted to regain my mobility in my usually very busy day to day life. Although I had previously seen both NHS and private orthopaedic specialists, the opinions I was receiving about my painful, swollen ankle were conflicting and nobody was offering me a medical path that felt right for me. Out of desperation, I spent a whole evening studying the National Joint Registry, looking up every UK foot and ankle consultant within 100 miles of my home, until I came across Mr Andrew Goldberg’s profile. I immediately made an appointment to see him. Due to lockdown, my husband and I had a video consultation with him, but he made me and my husband feel at ease. He reviewed my scans and told me exactly what was wrong with my ankle. I finally understood why I had been in so much pain and what my options were to solve the medical problem. Mr Goldberg inspired confidence in me, was very clear with his opinions and I didn’t feel rushed. When restrictions were lifted, I met Mr Goldberg at the Platinum Centre and he guided me step-by-step through the process of diagnosis and my choice of treatments. Two weeks ago, Mr Goldberg carried out my right ankle replacement and ligament reconstruction at the Wellington South, where Mr Goldberg and his team of expert nurses and medical practitioners looked after me. Everyone was very attentive and helpful. For my aftercare, my husband now drives me to The Wellington at Elstree because it’s closer to home where Mr Goldberg and his team also offer excellent aftercare. It is still early days for me, but I am so grateful to Mr Goldberg and his team. It is a pleasure to have met him. I just wish I had gone to him first!

    I am very grateful to Dr Goldberg. I saw two doctors in the US and two others in London and was receiving conflicting opinions. My osteopath recommended I see Dr Goldberg who was the clearest of all the opinions. He reviewed my scans and told me exactly what was wrong and showed me the pictures and made it so clear that I fully understood why my ankle is so painful. I had my surgery 2 months ago and I am for the first time in a year back in the gym and am so grateful for Dr Goldberg and his brilliant team. I wish I had gone to him first!

    Orthopaedic Surgery Ankle Fractures Heel Pain Foot Fractures Trauma Surgery
    I broke both my feet jumping off a wall in December 2019. I went to the NHS hospital and was told I needed surgery on both feet as they were really badly damaged. My heel bones were fractured and I was told I would never run again. I was devastated, so I went to see Mr Goldberg for a second opinion at the recommendation of my physiotherapist in Chelsea. Mr Goldberg looked at my scans and said they did not show the breaks properly. He asked for them to be redone and he made loads of phone calls on my behalf to sort this. He rang me that night and said that the left side did not need surgery. He still operated on the right side and I was in hospital for 3 days. I dont remember being in pain at all after the surgery, and his team are so lovely and so approachable. I went back for a check up last week and was so delighted when he said I could start training again. The left ankle is perfect but the right ankle is still a bit stiff and I am having physiotherapy but is getting better all the time. I jogged 2k yesterday and it was uplifting to know that my surgeon and physiotherapist are both behind me and supporting me through this ordeal.

    I had surgery on my ankle a two weeks ago by Mr Goldberg and had no pain, virtually no swelling and am so pleased I did because my recovery is like chalk and cheese from other surgeries. This was a redo of surgery done last year by another surgeon which didn’t work. After the first surgery I had swelling and bruising and was in agony for more than 10 days and had to go back to the hospital twice. I don’t know what magic dr Goldberg did but I am so so pleased I chose to go and see him.

    An exceptional doctor who goes the extra mile. I had a torrid time with my ankle and after lots of injuries thought I was going to be disabled. Not only did Mr Goldberg pick up things several other specialists missed but he had a new technique which solved my problem and whenever I had a query I would get his personal touch. His team and the ward staff are so nice I could not recommend everyone more.

    He is so caring and friendly. He communicates very well and has really looked after us well. He has looked after my husband and me and we are both so lucky to have him as our consultant. I tried to see him for our routine follow up but the hospital is closed because of the virus problem so we will wait a few months before coming back.

    Dr Goldberg is amazing. We had to do a video call because of the lockdown but he was worried my daughter had broken her ankle of the climbing frame. Despite the difficult circumstances Dr Goldberg offered to drive to our house to fit her with a special boot, which he did and we will get an X-ray next week. I cannot thank him enough for going out of his way for us. Above and beyond. As we had private insurance we are really glad we could use it to avoid burdening the scarce NHS resource.

    Andrew is a highly regarded foot & ankle surgical colleague. He deals with both simple and complex cases, for example the consideration of ankle replacement surgery in severe ankle osteoarthritis. He is also excellent for cases whereby diagnosis and management is not straightforward and a comprehensive consultant 2nd opinion is sought.
