"Kash is the best knee doctor in London" was the quote that I got from my physio when I searching for surgeons after an ACL tear in early 2018. He did not disappoint. He obviously has incredible knowledge and understanding but what sets him apart is the way he can convey very complicated medical jargon in a way that makes you feel comfortable. I am now 9 months post surgery and I have no complaints. He is extremely professional and I would recommend him to anyone.
I was referred to Dr Akhtar after suffering many years of acute knee pain. We underwent several tests and scans and whilst the obvious and perhaps easiest route was surgery Dr Akhtar encouraged me to undergo some intense physio as he believed with the right discipline it could avoid the surgery. After 3 months of work I am almost pain free. I am delighted with the outcome and hugely impressed with this Doctors integrity and professionalism.
Following an ACL rupture back in September 2017, I was referred to Kash and I could not be more pleased with the care I have received since then. From the outset Kash laid out all of the options available to me and did not just push surgery as the only option, although this was the route I pursued in the end. This level of care for me as a patient continued throughout the surgery and the post surgery care, right up to my final meeting with Kash where I have now been fully signed off. Throughout the whole process Kash has kept me informed and updated at every turn. He uses everyday terms so you can easily understand what he is trying to tell you, and was upfront and honest with where I was in the process compared to where others he has treated previously have been. I honestly don't think that my recovery from the injury would have gone any where near as smoothly without the care and attention I have been afforded by Kash and so I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending him.
I suffered a full ACL tear from a football injury and did some hefty research on available knee consultants in the London area. Kash was my preferred choice (mainly from reading reviews like this!) and i have been really pleased from start to finish. A great surgeon who clearly explained the process at every step and gave great advice post surgery to enable a full recovery. I would also add that he is a great bloke, funny, relaxed and makes it very hassle free. Highly recommend.
Kash is an outstanding surgeon I would recommend to anyone: I apparently had one of the nastiest bucket handle tear of the meniscus he's ever seen in his entire career along with a complete ACL rupture. Kash suggested a staged approach to repair the meniscus first and then do the ACL at a later stage. Before going into surgery, we didn't know whether a repair of the meniscus was possible or it needed to be removed completely. Despite the complex tear, Kash was able to fully repair my meniscus. I am now three months post surgery and, while I need to wait an extra month for impact workouts, I can do everything I was able to do before the injury, have no pain at all and barely had any swelling throughout the past 12 weeks. Finally, this was pretty much my first surgery and Kash was very empathetic and supportive, answered all my (also silly) questions and took me through how the procedure was going to work. Moreover, he got on my case super quickly and after I saw him on the Friday he was able to operate the following Monday - I would not have resolved this as quickly if it wasn't for him! If I need or decide to repair my ACL, I know where to go without the shadow of a doubt.
