I think it may be hard for medical professionals to understand exactly how
much their work means for people like me. The extreme outdoor enthusiast is
not a normal human being. It is a thing which is driven to explore and
challenge the outer realms of what the normals think is possible. I will turn 50
this year – with more than 40 year of competitive and endurance events
behind me. Whilst I understand the need to taper down a bit over the coming
years, I will forever love and enjoy the great outdoors, whether it is on land,
under water or chasing the wind.
Your expertise made it possible for me to again live that thing which drives
me. Thank you for your dedication and diligent skill developed over so many
years. It provides others with the ability to the love life.
After two years of hip pain due to poor balance from a bunion on my left foot, I decided to look into surgery to fix the issue. Dr Amit thoroughly assessed the issue and I felt confident in his abilities to rectify it. The surgery went well and his aftercare was brilliant. Had I known that I could be completely pain free, I would’ve done it much sooner.
I have had the great pleasure and immense fortune to have been looked after by Amit Amin and Jon Houghton. In both cases each took the time to fully understand what was a very complicated ‘career ending’ ankle injury in order to make accurate careful diagnoses, and to put together a well thought out plan of action (only using surgery were absolutely necessary), which was then very well explained. My ankle has been looked at by various third parties who have noted that Mr Amin’s ankle arthroscopy and Brostrum Gould reconstructive surgery was of the highest standard they had seen. I saw Mr Houghton for diagnosis of and treatment for ongoing pain; Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. He is incredibly knowledgeable about a rare and complicated chronic pain problem that is poorly understood and often misdiagnosed or mistreated by many other medical professionals. Ultimately, Mr Amin was responsible for the mechanics of my ankle, meaning I can now walk again and even run on a treadmill. Mr Houghton treated the CPRS, which had prevented me walking without crutches. Both are also very kind with their time.
I am indebted to Mr Amin. When a consultant at King’s College Hospital asserted that there was nothing more that they could do for my chronic ankle pain, I sought a second opinion. I was forty-one years old, a mother and secondary school teacher and had been very physically active. Whilst I had fractured my ankle, I could not believe that I would have to live with this for the rest of my life. I was recommended Mr Amin by my physiotherapist. Mr Amin was sympathetic and encouraging; he took conservative steps before resorting to surgery. When I came round from the general anaesthetic, I was convinced that Mr Amin had rectified the problem. I owe enormous thanks to an exceptional surgeon.
I had a bunion surgery with Dr Amit Amin last June at London Bridge hospital and I am very happy with the result! Dr Amin approach is very professional and reassuring. I used to have a lot of pain in my left foot because of this bunion and now it’s gone! For the first time in years, I am able to wear Tropezienne sandals without my foot being compressed or too wide to fit! That’s fantastic! If you need a bunionectomy surgery, you found the best surgeon in Dr Amin.
Dear Mr Amin, Thank you so much for all your help with my Achilles. It is very much appreciated – all the positivity and affirming that it will heal and it will get better. It is going well and am happy with the progress, there are good things ahead.
