    Couldn't ask for better treatment, from the first appointment everything was made perfectly clear and I knew what to expect, one of the first people I saw after coming round from surgery and again explained everything at a level I could understand. I had A.c.l revision stage 1 and was told to expect pain and discomfort but experienced very little, from reading other people's experiences with same operation im very happy mr Attar did my operation and the scar is extremely neat in comparison with others I seen. Would definitely recommend mr Attar to anyone with knee issues

    I have been a patient of Mr Fahad Attar for some time; it is always beneficial to have a consultant that you feel you have great confidence in, but it is even more beneficial to have one that you can communicate with easily and know that your views/concerns are considered with care and respect. I cannot speak to highly of my treatment (in every context) by Mr Attar and I firmly believe that there is a rapport between us that has enhanced both my experience and treatment. A first class consultant.

    When going through my insurance through work, Mr Attar come very highly recommended my a work colleague and friend who had surgery on his knee off Mr Attar and that settled any nerves pre op I had and once I met Mr Attar I was very happy and assured I made the correct decision, my surgery went smoothly and the rehab has been great through the guidance off Mr Attar in the aftercare and physiotherapy. I will always recommend Mr Attar to anyone I know who have any problems with their knee as I couldn’t of asked for better care. I can’t thank him enough.

    Firstly, I would like to say thank you to Mr Attar and his team, they were all marvellous. From the initial consultancies to my actual day of the operation, I felt very informed with the information I was given, and although I was nervous about the injection in my back the anesthetists made me laugh and I felt very comfortable, and it was pain free. Mr Attar has been very professional and caring , he explained every step of the operation to me, it has made my life so much better since I have had it done, and I do not suffer from that horrible pain that made my life unbearable. Thank you so much. The after care in the hospital was outstanding and I went home with lots of advice on what to do and what not to do! Many thanks Mr Attar.

    I had Partial Knee replacement performed by Mr Fahad Attar. The surgery has been a great success. Before the operation i had a permanent limp and a lot of lower leg pain due to my leg beginning to bow due to my Cartilage failure . Mr Attar quickly identified my problem and sent me for some full length X-rays which confirmed his thoughts. I am glad to say he agreed to perform the operation. He explained everything included and the risks involved with the procedure. The follow up care and appointments have been very professional. I would recommend Mr Attar to anyone considering any lower limb surgery. I am delighted with my outcome, six months in I have full mobility and none of the lower leg pain experienced previously.

    Superb feedback and explanations throughout all episodes of care. Putting the patient at ease with advice before the operation and on the day of the operation and all post care visits. Both knees have been operated on during the course of two years and the patient feels so much relief and regrets not proceeding with the procedure earlier.
