    For 15 years Sam Singh has been the lead Foot and Ankle Surgeon at Guys and St Thomas', a leading UK teaching hospital.

    As well as being regarded as one of London's leading Foot and Ankle Specialists, nine other Foot and Ankle consultants in the South East have trained directly under him through the fellowship program he founded.

    He graduated from Cambridge University, trained in Orthopaedic surgery in London and completed his training in Boston, USA. He is the only British Surgeon to have ever been awarded a specialist fellowship in Foot and Ankle Surgery from Harvard University.

    He offers the latest proven techniques for managing all Foot and Ankle disorders including: Ankle sports Injuries, ligament injuries, bunions and hammertoes, Morton’s Neuroma and tendon disorders, Arthritis of the foot and ankle, Achilles tendon issues, Plantar Fasciitis, and minimally invasive foot surgery.

    His commitment to giving patients clear and honest advice on recovering from injury or surgery led to his invitation to be be the senior editor on Bunions and Morton’s neuroma for the UK's leading patient resource, "NHS Choices." He also regularly publishes in academic and popular media.

    He is passionate about his work, delivering his patients their care in a reassuring manner with a sprinkling of good humour.

    He is a preferred provider of all insurance companies as his charges fall within their guidelines.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Bunions (Hallux Valgus) Bunion Surgery
    Mr Singh is a star! I have recently had surgery on my second bunion and, yet again, I could not have wished for a better experience throughout. He is very personable, is friendly yet professional, and he explained clearly what the surgery and recovery entailed. At no time have I ever felt like a “just a patient” on a conveyor belt. I have every confidence in him and I have recommended him to several friends and acquaintances.

    Bunions (Hallux Valgus) Bunionectomy
    For years I have experienced pain and deformed feet due to my large bunions, horror stories of nerve damage and further pain post op were discussed from various people and hospitals , so I avoided even thinking about an operation , but after the long lockdown period I couldn’t walk for very long periods of time without having to remove my trainers. I am a 51 year old considerably fit and healthy lady, so enough was enough and a good friend of mine was booked into Dr Singh for a double bunionectomy so I asked for his contact details and went along for a chat . From the warm welcome and in-depth conversation I was booked in for a double bunionectomy two weeks later . The first week was painful but bearable and 6 weeks post op I am walking swimming and back to my everyday life . I still get swelling but that is to be expected from 6 weeks to a year . If anyone is debating to have this operation DO IT ! I wish I had seen Dr Singh earlier and had this 20 years ago !

    I cannot highly recommend Mr Singh enough. I felt comfortable and confident about my decision to have surgery and it has made such a difference to my life. From the very start Mr Singh explained everything I needed to know in a simple and clear way and we tried a number of avenues before deciding surgery was the best way forward. My recovery was smooth and his outstanding skills are evident with the fact that I'm now pain free and I can barely see the scar. I can't thank him enough.

    Mr Singh has seen me 2 years ago for morton's neuroma and he was brilliant in every way. Diagnosed it straight away, gave me an injection, which alleviated the pain. So when my other foot had similar symptoms, I knew he is the best person to see again. I again, had the same great experience, he explained in detail what the issue is and provided me with options, allowed me to make an informed decision. I cannot recommend him enough, he is humble, extremely knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person.

    After having many issues with my feet, Sam has taken me from not being able to walk (literally) to being able to have my life back and run around again after three years of a long slog of treatment. Excellent surgeon, brilliant Doctor who speaks with compassion and recognises what decisions I needed to make by giving me with all of the relevant information to understand what risks etc. were involved. I highly recommend Sam to anyone who needs a specialist, I won't be seeing anyone else.
