    I saw Mr. Malagelada for a sprained ankle and I would highly recommend him for that sort of issue: he treated me appropriately but also recommended me to the right Physio, followed up with both of us regularly to make sure I was progressing well in my recovery... overall, he was very considerate and helpful!

    big toe corrective surgery Foot & Ankle Surgery
    I would highly recommend Mr Malagelada - I can not fault his expertise or patient care. I went to see him last year with a very painful big toe (joint) on my right foot. I was referred for x-rays very quickly, the problem / surgery required to fix was explained to me in detail and so I was comfortable to go ahead with the surgery. Mr Malagelada's advise and care post/pre surgery was highly appreciated. This meant, at the 3 month recovery point, I am very pleased I had the corrective surgery done on my left foot also. The second foot is also healing very well at the moment so from someone who was defiantly on the nervous side about surgery, I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Malagelda at all.

    Dr Malagelada looked after me as I was recovering from my fractured foot (Oct-Dec 2020). Overall I have been very satisfied with the experience - I received prompt, thorough care and advice, with clear explanation and plan of action. Also, I appreciated Dr Malagelada's follow-on specialist recommendation for my foot's rehab. Highly recommended.

    Mr Malagelada saw me at very short notice at the recommendation of a colleague. He was extremely kind and helpful at each consultation, apart from being a good doctor. So good a doctor that I am now fully using the damaged foot.
