"Ahmad Malik took over my case following a botched operation by a podiatrist. My initial procedures were – right foot 1st metatarsal osteotomy and 2nd toe arthroplasty. I ended up with a severe foot infection and was admitted to hospital where I remained for 2 weeks whilst the wound was treated.
I then transferred my care to Mr Malik. I could see on the x-rays that the initial operation was all wrong. Mr Malik asked me to wait a few months to let the swelling to settle and my tissues to heal. At the right time he said he would then operate.
In the end the result was spectacular. Despite being in severe discomfort as a result of the complicated initial operation, within a few weeks of the operation carried out by Mr Malik I was no longer in any pain and in 6 weeks walking without a stick. The x-rays were remarkable showing a clean tidy neat job, with (and this was the object from the start) straight toes. I am now walking up to 20km a week, playing golf and even playing football with my grandson – things not possible for the previous 5 years.
I cannot speak highly enough of Mr Malik, not only for his undoubted skill but his positive, no nonsense and very frank attitude.

"Mr Ahmad Malik has the aesthetic sense of a sculptor, the precision of an engineer, the charm and helpfulness of a first-class hotel concierge. As a result of his work, I am now able to walk around again and do my hobbies, and even do the downward dog (Yoga). Before the two surgeries, spaced five weeks apart, walking was difficult and I was in constant pain."
"I was recommended to get in touch with Mr Malik to get a second opinion on some foot surgery that was diagnosed for my mother. I was not only impressed with Mr Malik's opinion but also his diagnostic skills that has now led to positive results but also with the manner in which he explained the surgery and the post surgery support my mother has received."
"How do you say in a few words the gratitude I feel to Dr Malik for his professionalism, incredible confidence he inspired, and his personable manner. From consultation to discharge, the operations performed were explained, questions answered, and above all reassurance given. Thank you does not seem enough."
"November 2013 I had an ankle fusion surgery done by Mr Malik. Although this was a difficult decision, so far the benefits of the surgery are far beyond any expectation I had. The ankle fusion has corrected a dropped foot from a nerve injury, which caused me to limp badly.
Walking has become much easier and a pleasure again, and the limp has gone. Mr Malik is approachable, kind and easy to communicate with and I truly believe cares deeply about his patients and the service he provides. Patients have his email address and the replies come back quickly. Dates for planned surgery are given well in advance, great so that plans for family and work can be made.
In my experience Mr Malik is a highly skilled surgeon, providing an excellent service and has a modern approach to communication and administration. Clinic consultations are not rushed, plenty of time is spent giving an explanation and making sure there is understanding of the condition, surgery, rehabilitation etc.
Having worked in the NHS for 30 years it is encouraging to see progress, skill and a modern approach emerging. Mr Malik comes with my highest recommendation if you are needing the services of a specialist ankle and foot surgeon."
