Calcified heel spur as a result of insertional Achilles tendinopathy treated with Achilles speed bridge

"I first met Mr Malik last September. I had problems with my foot for quite some time. I had an x-ray then the consultants apptointment. The spur was plain to see. Mr Malik explained what he would like to do. As the recovery time is quite long I got the collywobbles. I was sent away for 2 weeks to decide. I returned saying "yes proceed". I was offered an appointment for the operation with in a few weeks. I had my operation on 19/3/15. All went well by all accounts. I was of course asleep! After the operation I had backslab plaster and had to keep the foot above heart level for 2 weeks. I was then non weight bearing for another week. Then I wore a special boot for 2 weeks. Then we were sort of walking. Google being my best friend, I seem to have progressed quicker and with less problems than other people on line. Any medical person I have seen to date - June 2015, has been impressed. Wound healed very well. The internal healing still going on, however many many thanks to Mr Malik, who has done a fantastic job."

Lesser metatarsal head resection (Rheumatoid arthritic foot)

"Mr Malik is courteous, personable and highly professional. He gave me clear advice on what was involved in my operation and firm instructions on what I needed to do to be fully recovered in 6 weeks. He instilled such confidence that I followed his advice to the letter and 6 weeks post op I am now fully recovered. He is without doubt a superb orthopaedic surgeon - I could not have received better treatment anywhere. Thank you Mr Malik."

Talonavicular Arthritis

"Having originally been misdiagnosed with ruptured ligaments when I turned my ankle on a kerb (leaving my doctor's surgery for something unrelated!), I was referred to Mr Malik by my NHS physiotherapist. His team discovered I had actually broken the talonavicular joint on the top of my right foot nine months previously. As the damage to the cartilage was now causing arthritis, I was offered a choice: an operation to pin the bones together (which would put me out of action for up to 3 months), or to try a non operative regime of a glucosamine sulphate supplement together with a stepped insole. I opted for the latter, and three months later I have thrown away the stick and painkillers, and can walk 75% normally again, play some golf and walk the dog for an hour each day. Perhaps sometime in the future I may need Mr Malik's surgery skills as the arthritis takes it toll, but for now I can enjoy a normal life without the pain I suffered for those nine long months. Thank you to and him and everyone at Wycombe Hospital."

1st MTP joint fusion and second toe correction

"I first met Mr Malik a year ago with my condition. I found him to be professional, caring and extremely positive about my forthcoming operation. I had complete trust in him and he informed me that my foot would be fine for my son's wedding in April. He was true to his word and my foot has healed perfectly. I cannot thank him enough and would have no hesitation in recommending him. You are indeed in very safe hands!"

Bunion with 1st MTP joint arthritis

"Having suffered from very bad bunions since my teen years and having a morbid fear of surgery, time and time again I have postponed seeking any sort of solution to the continuous pain I have experienced over the years, until it so badly affected my quality of life that I had to bite the bullet and seek professional assistance, Mr Malik was highly recommended as the person to see for any sort of surgical intervention to correct my poor old bunions. He explained clearly exactly how he could help me, what the surgery involved, what I needed to do to prepare for surgery and what improvement I could expect after surgery. Having being reassured and feeling great confidence in his professionalism and approachable personality, in August last year I had a fusion performed. It was a great success and my recovery was problem free. I am now looking forward to having the bunion on my other foot "sorted" this coming summer!"
