I am a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon specialising in Adult Foot and Ankle Surgery and Paediatric Orthopaedics. I also provide emergency orthopaedic care for most bone and joint injuries, in the NHS and the Private Sector. I believe that every patient has the right to expect the best care possible and I endeavour to provide it with empathy and kindness. I treat every patient the way that I would expect myself or one of my loved ones to be treated!
Mr Acharya explained the complete procedure to me (I had a spur on my heel removed which involved the removal and reattachment of my achilles tendon).He explained that the potential complete recovery time was up- to 12 months. I had the operation on January 11th 2018. I am writing this review on May 11th. In 2 hours time I will be playing golf, walking the whole course completely pain free. Mr Acharya is without doubt the most considerate and skilful surgeon I could have chosen to entrust with my wellbeing both before and after the operation. If I had to write this review in one word, that word would be "amazing" Mr Acharya I am more indebted to you than you could possibly realise. Thank you
Your kind words are much appreciated. Thank you for being patient and cooperative, while we tried various non-operative treatments, before going for the surgical alternative; this worked brilliantly for you. You should continue to improve. Regards.
I was referred for an arthritic te joint. I could not walk without extreme pain. X-rays showed the extent of the problem and an operation to 'fuse' the joint followed. This was quite straightforward and was completed in a day. I was back home with advice to follow for rehabilitation and rest. An appointment 6 weeks later showed it was healing well. No PAIN - great. I was impressed with the professional and friendly process at The Holly. I would recommend both the surgeon and hospital on my eperience.
Happy that I could rid you of your pain.....probably, the greatest help that a doctor can give a patient. Hope you continue being pain-free. Regards.
Prior to seeing Mr. Acharya, I had seen two other consultants with regards to my foot problem. One said there wasn't much that could be done and the other said I should try first with some orthotics costing £450. I suffered for 4 years with the most excruciating pains, eventually acquiring a limp, before I decided to seek treatment again. When I went to Mr.Acharya, I was expecting a steroid injection for the pain. When he told me I would need an operation, I was devastated. My Son's wedding was coming up the following year and it couldn't have come at a worst time. The recovery period was 18 months, but I had no choice. If I didn't have the operation I was just going to get rapidly worse. I had adult acquired flat foot and the operation was minimally invasive/keyhole surgery. I thought it was damage limitation but, and I am not prone to exaggeration, he changed my life. Because of my age (57) I had come to accept that I was just going to have to manage my pain for the rest of my life and that long walks were a thing of the past. I never imagined, dreamed or thought it possible that I would again be able to walk with little and most times, no pain at all. I could not only stand at my Son's wedding, but dance too. Not all night, but enough. I walk every morning for 2 hours before I go to work and I am better than I have been for several years. I was confident in his abilities from our first meeting and he didn't disappoint. Would I recommend him. Without hesitation. Thank you Mr. Acharya, for giving me back something I honestly thought I had lost for good. p.s. I'm still only 15 months from my op. :)
I did the surgery, but full marks to you for achieving all your rehabilitation goals via sheer hard work and determination. Being able to help patients like you gives me the strength and courage to carry on as a surgeon. Best wishes for continued good health. Regards.
One of the best doctors if not the best doctor I’ve ever had, listened and explained everything to me in-depth so helpful, was honest about everything need more doctors like him
How kind of you! Glad I could be of assistance. Hope you continue to be well. Regards.
I was very happy to be in the care of Mr Ashok Acharya. Always explained everything to me before giving me injections and operation on my ankle. Made me feel at ease . Always took time to listen . Would recommend him to anyone
Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. Hope you continue to be well. Regards.
