    He graduated from medical school in Frankfurt and received his master’s degree in Sports Medicine from the University of Nice.

    He completed his post graduate Orthopaedic training in the major teaching hospitals of Germany and Paris, followed by a specialised foot and ankle fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.

    Dr Klinke was extremely knowledgeable and reassuring during a painful injury and recovery process and I was particularly impressed by his attention to the personal and specific aspects of the case rather than the general finding. He helped me recover quickly and with confidence and recommended a high quality therapeutic treatment (non-surgical) while explaining the surgical options should i have complications that warrant it.

    I’ve experienced issues in both my big toes, having gone to numerous consultants as a result. Martin was the first one who was able to correctly diagnose both injuries with an honest and realistic solution going forward. He operated on the toe that was seemingly unfixable, for which I am now able to do weight bearing activities on. We are in the process of devising a plan for the other toe which I hope will be just as successful, and I enjoy listening to his expert opinion and advice especially relative to people such as myself who love to play sport. Would highly recommend him to anyone suffering from any type of normal or obscure words injury to the foot/ankle.

    My Big toe joint had been very painful for a very long time and for many years I had been walking on the side of my foot and therefore this was now affecting my ankle joint and knee. Mr Klinke was very thorough with his examination and really listened to me, which is unusual in some consultants. After xrays, scan s etc. it was decided that the big toe had to be fused. This was all arranged as a day patient and undertaken 3 weeks later in a very good clinic. The operation was very successful and although you have to be off the foot for a number of weeks it is definitely worth it. Follow up appointments were also very thorough and personal care was given by Mr Klinke. I now have no pain at all and learning how to walk properly again. I just need to sort my ankle out and will be seeing Mr Klinke again about this. I would definitely recommend Mr Klinke

    Mr Klinke was superb from start to finish! I had previously had a failed surgery from another hospital. He immediately identified my problems and explained everything to me very clearly. He arranged to carry out surgery which was very successful and really quite pain free! His bedside manner was fantastic and his after care too. I could not have asked for a better surgeon, he thoroughly exceeded all expectation. I would highly recommend him.

    When I approached Mr Klinke I was convinced no one would touch my feet again yet I knew I needed help. He listened and responded in a most beautiful way that told me I could trust him. He never pushed for one firm of treatment or another but helped me choose and I felt walked with me every step of the way. His surgical skill and whole manner left me feeling I was in very safe hands. Thank you.

    I had a recent consultation with Mr Klinke. He is very knowledgeable, considerate and professional. He has a very pleasant manner, easy to talk to, and I greatly appreciate the time he took to explain things to me. He operated on my foot 10 years ago very successfully and he would always be my first choice for any foot problems.

    Martin Klinke throughly examined my bunion on right foot . Had me walk around and noticed my hamstrings were extremely tight also . The procedure was thoroughly explained to me and what to expect before I booked the procedure . After the operation he came to see me and how I was coping with the after surgery and the following morning before I was discharged . After care for my foot explained in detail . I had your surgery in June . I followed his instructions on what I could and couldn’t do . I also did the physio therapy which will help sped up your progress to walking as normal . I am pleased to its almost the end of October 2019 and walking better than before . Thank you Dr . Klinke

    Achilles Tendon Problems
    I had an excellent experience using Mr Klinke. To start with his PA, Gay Munn, is extremely efficient. I was abroad when I ruptured my achilles so getting seen quickly on my return to the UK was paramount. His communication around the options available to me was clear, the route to surgery unproblematic, the surgery and after care excellent. In short, everything went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. Very professional. The only thing I haven't liked is using the 'egress secure e mail service' which seems unnecessary and over complicated.

    Mr Klinke operated on my torn Achilles’ tendon in November 2018 and six months later I am waking normally with a fully healed tendon. He has been excellent throughout, from clearly explaining the procedure to me to always being available to answer any questions during my post op recovery. I can not recommend him more highly and am very grateful that I was referred to him by my doctor.

    I am a 57 year old woman, who enjoys moderate exercise and jogging. My bunion was becoming more painful, and I undertook quite a bit of research on treatments and specialists. Mr Klinke emerged from my research as being one of the leading surgeons in this field and the reviews were impressive.Within a few minutes of my first consultantion with Mr Klinke it was clear why he has such a reputation; I had total trust and confidence in his advice, and quickly dispensed with my long list of google -fuelled questions! I was nervous at the prospect of surgery, but Mr Klinke put me at ease. I had my bunion surgery in March 2019, and can honestly say that, for me, the procedure has involved very little pain. There is an inevitable period of recuperation, inconvenience and some discomfort, but my surgery (and best of all my big toe!!) has been so streamlined. I am delighted with my "new foot", am walking without any discomfort, and hope to be back running soon. I cannot praise Mr Klinke enough and would recommend him unreservedly. In addition to being a brilliant surgeon, Mr Klinke is also a very kind and approachable consultant.
