    I thought I wouldn't play rugby again, but Mr Khan worked his magic & I was back playing this season! He reconstructed my ACL & PCL & repaired my torn meniscus. Reassured me & explained each step of the way. He is a legend & I can't thank him enough. Thanks Mr K!

    About me

    • Mr Amer Khan was educated in London and qualified from Kings College Medical School in 1994. He subsequently undertook his orthopaedic training in the South-West and obtained the FRCS (Tr & Orth) in 2007. He is dual fellowship trained having undertaken his sub-specialist fellowships in shoulder surgery at The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital and knee surgery at Guys and St Thomas’s Hospital.
      Mr Khan has also completed fellowships in Europe and America and was fortunate to work with some of the leading pioneers in both arthroscopic soft tissue knee and shoulder surgery. He was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 2010 at Homerton University Hospital, which was the official Olympic Hospital for injured athletes and where he treated a number of injured Olympians and Paralympians. He holds the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Orthopaedics, FRCS (Tr & Orth) and is on the specialist register of the General Medical Council.
      He is committed to research and medical education. He regularly teaches on courses on shoulder and knee surgery including soft tissue sports injury and is routinely invited to lecture and teach internationally. In his orthopaedic practice, Mr Khan specialises in all problems of shoulder and knee including soft tissue sports injury and jointly runs the sports injury service. He has particular expertise in modern arthroscopic (keyhole) techniques for multi-ligament soft tissue knee surgery and soft tissue shoulder surgery as well as total knee and total shoulder replacement.

    Question about Knee replacement

    I had a right total knee replacement...

    I had a right total knee replacement over 3years ago it will not straighten -20 or bend more than 60degrees since operation . I have had 3 operations MUA and CPM with extensive physio also had open lumpectomy with CPM and physio knee is still as bad DOES THE JOINT NEED REVISION?
    Amer Khan FRCS (Tr&Orth) Orthopaedist, Orthopaedic surgeon London
    If your knee truly is 20 degrees short of extension and only bends to 60 degrees then its range of movement is from 20-60 degrees (ie 40 degrees)- which for a total knee replacement is extremely unusual. You mentioned the surgery was performed 3 years ago and that you have had several further attempts at increasing the range of movement including MUAs, CPM and an open (?arthrolysis) yet you have failed to improve. Some more answers to questions are required - was it a TKR following an arthrodesis (fusion of the knee), do you have an underlying neuromuscular disorder, have you consulted your original surgeon to discuss this further.etc...? Assuming your pain and dysfunction is similar to (or worse) than that before the surgery and no medical comorbidities preclude you from having further surgery then revision knee replacement would be a reasonable option.

      I thought I wouldn't play rugby again, but Mr Khan worked his magic & I was back playing this season! He reconstructed my ACL & PCL & repaired my torn meniscus. Reassured me & explained each step of the way. He is a legend & I can't thank him enough. Thanks Mr K!

    • When it comes to complex knee surgery Mr. Amer Khan is the surgeon to turn to. His professionalism and competence is immediately evident. His bedside manner impeccable. I would recommend him without reservation.

    • Had an ACL reconstruction (using part of my hamstring) & a meniscus trim in my left knee. After a year of serious physio & because the surgery was excellent, I am back doing martial arts with more confidence, strength & stability than before. Can't recommend the London Independant & Mr Khan enough!

    • Mr Khan did a shoulder stabilisation op earlier this year. I'm so pleased with the result. My shoulder hasn't dislocated once following the op (guess that's the aim!) and feels stronger than ever. Great surgeon & very down to earth.

    • I had a frozen shoulder and was terrified. Mr Khan put my mind at complete ease. He talked me through everything clearly. I knew what he was going to do and what I needed to do post-op. The results are excellent. I have a fully moving shoulder again and can't thank Mr Khan enough.

    • I tore my ACL and MCL! I wanted to get my knee surgery done by Mr Khan! I waited for a couple of months to see him specially and he's really down to earth and really friendly! He reconstructed my ACL, MCL & Meniscus all in one surgery! He's a great doctor, the best surgeon by far! :)

    • Well where do I begin? This man is an absolute inspiration. I tore my ACL ligament and Dr Khan was absolutely fantastic. He repaired my ligament and allowed to gain my full mobility again. I myself want to study medicine and he has inspired me further and taught to be a good doctor. He is remarkable.

    • Had knee arthroscopy at The Homerton under Mr Khan. Whole team were great. Thank you to Mr Khan and the whole team at Homerton. Recommended.

    • Mr Khan was wonderful, he explained everything to me in detail. He put my mind at rest & did exactly what he said he would do! Highly recommended knee surgeon.
