What we did well
Arthrex Midsubstance Repair to a torn (ruptured) Achilles tendon
What we could have done differently
From the initial injury check by Mr Malik to the rapid operation the whole procedure was seamless and faultless. Perfect.
Mr Malik and his team provided a first class service from initial examination, operation, recovery procedure, cast to boot, and follow up advice on recovery steps and physiotherapy. The video of this operation on Google; I am glad I saw it after the event!! Thank you and your team Mr Malik, I am looking forward to start training for my next marathon.
Answer from us

Maissoneuve fracture with posterior malleolus fracture - procedure was ankle EUA and syndesmotic (tightrope) repair. I would recommend Mr Malik to anybody. Prior to seeing Mr Malik my injury had been mis diagnosed as an ordinary sprain. Mr Malik quickly identified the real problem and while explaining the seriousness, quickly put me at ease as to the steps to be taken and timeline for recovery. His manner with patients is fantastic and i am so happg with the results of the surgery he performed. The recovery time was exactly as he had predicted and i am now walking/exercising normally again. His recommendations as to choice of physio were also spot on.
Nothing - I could not be happier with the quality of diagnosis, surgical care, patient care, conmunication amd outpatient/physio support
As above I would not improve on the care I received and I would recommend Mr Malik to anyone with a similar injury.

Right talus insufficiency fracture
After weeks of incorrect diagnosis and treatment at local surgery level, Mr Malik identified the problem precisely, and provided appropriate treatment by use of an Aircast boot.
At all times, I felt entirely confident in his care, and was greatly reassured by his lovely warm and friendly manner.
I am now looking forward to getting back to a more active life. Thank you so much.

Achilles Tendon Reconstruction using FHL tendon transfer
Why did you have your Achilles tendon reconstructed?
I needed an Achilles tendon reconstructed (FHL tendon transfer) because I ruptured it during a fall at the beginning of August 2015. The tear measured 26mm but was not diagnosed when I first attended High Wycombe Minor Injuries Clinic.
What were your concerns before the operation?
I was concerned about undergoing a major operation at the age of 82 years and was frightened and worried whether the operation would be successful. I felt it might be better to leave things as they were because my damaged leg was not painful. The problem was that it was causing my other side, already damaged by a previous dislocation of the shoulder, to become extremely painful and made walking very difficult.
What was your experience of the post operative recovery?
Surprisingly I found the experience much more straightforward than I anticipated. The treatment could not have been better. The cleanliness of High Wycombe Hospital was immaculate and the food was excellent. Mr. Malik and all the nursing staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. They changed my whole expectations of the NHS. I cannot speak too highly of my treatment. Since the operation I have been undergoing Physiotherapy with Mr. Zahoor at Amersham Hospital. He is extremely patient and clear in his explanation of my treatment and exercise programme.
What was the most challenging part of having your foot operated on?
The most challenging part of the procedure was not being able to bear weight on my foot. As I was in plaster for two weeks it was impossible for me to hop, even to the toilet.
What advice would you give future patients?
I would advise any future patient to consider carefully the advice given by their consultant. I really did not want the operation but Mr. Malik was confident, despite my age, that I should go ahead because the Achilles injury would cause further problems to my other side. He was right because it worsened prior to the operation. If you are offered treatment by Mr. Malik, grab the opportunity with both hands. I send my thanks and gratitude to everyone.
