About

Mr Amer Khan was educated at Kings College London where he gained a 1st class honours in Physiology and Exercise Medicine before qualifying in 1994. He undertook higher surgical training in orthopaedics in South West England before completing subspecialist fellowship training in Shoulder surgery at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital & Knee surgery at Guys & St Thomas’ Hospital.

He was awarded the prestigious British Orthopaedic Association European Travelling Fellowship, gaining further subspecialist training working with pioneers in arthroscopic Knee, Shoulder and Hip surgery in Ghent, Lyon, Annecy, Nice and Toulouse before embarking on further fellowships in the USA and other European Centres of Excellence.

Later he was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in sports knee, shoulder and hip injuries in 2010 at the Homerton University Hospital, where he was clinical lead for the Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics and Joint Clinical Lead for Sports & Exercise Medicine.

His extensive career ranges to the London 2012 Olympic Games, where Mr Khan was a selected member of the knee team and provided acute care to injured athletes. He treated a number of athletes and performed their surgery at the Homerton University Hospital (designated hospital for the London 2012 Games). He coordinated the provision of a highly specialised multidisciplinary approach to their care securing their return to elite professional sport. Mr Khan continues to treat professional and semi-professional athletes from all disciplines as well as sports & fitness enthusiasts.

As a highly trained surgeon and sports arthroscopist (keyhole surgeon) working within a multidisciplinary team, he is particularly apt in avoiding surgery where appropriate. His expertise includes ACL reconstruction and novel ACL repair techniques, meniscal and cartilage preservation and replacement surgery, all ligament surgery including revision and all arthroscopic procedures to the shoulder and hip as well as Knee & Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery.

He is committed to research and medical education. He regularly teaches at courses on shoulder and knee surgery including soft tissue sports injury, both nationally and internationally and has been involved in teaching Orthopaedic and Sports & Exercise Medicine Trainees.

Dr Khan went over and above to get me back on my feet. When I ran into an unplanned fluctuating personal circumstance where I had to move to Wales after our initial consultation, Dr Khan and his PA Jess went out of their way to make sure I understood my injury, help needed and what my options were. I was so impressed with his support that I continued with Dr Khan from Wales as other doctors I spoke to didn't show the same level of care and expertise which in hindsight could have left me at high risk of arthritis if I had gone with them instead. I'm now 6 weeks post surgery and starting to walk again with the support of crutches. No pain and confident I'll be back on my feet properly in no time. Massive thanks to Dr Khan and the team!

Mr Amer Khan

Thank you for your very kind and positive feedback. I always endeavour to cater to the individual needs of each of my patients and try to adapt to changing circumstances where I am able to. Helping patients to understand their options and the reasoning behind my recommendations ensures that they are fully equipped to make informed decisions about their treatment plan which undoubtedly helps with their recovery and rehabilitation.

Mr Khan is always very patient and explains things very well in a non medical language which is always very helpful to a lay person as it then makes it easier for me as the patient to relay back to family and friends. He is also very good at laying out all options and choices of treatments available and advising which would be better and why.

Mr Amer Khan

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. I always try to explain all aspects of a patients treatment at each step of the way and am always happy to answer questions and to clarify or rephrase points. It is very important to me that my patients understand their diagnosis, their options and their treatment plans and that they are able to make an informed decision.

I was told in the US that I needed a major operation with a recovery period of six months. I saw Mr Kahn who recommended a less invasive operation on my shoulder. It has been a great success and Mr Kahn was extremely,professional.

Many thanks for your positive feedback. Sometimes less is more coupled with understanding the nature of the problem and listening to the patient and what they want to achieve from any procedure. Informed decision making by both surgeon and patient to achieve a good outcome.

Dr Khan provided me the utmost of care and highest level of expertise from my initial consult to post operative follow up as a patient. I underwent an MPFL knee reconstruction in the late Spring of 2018, and I always felt in the best hands with his professionalism and level of skill. I appreciated that he always took the time to explain my treatment options fully and answer my questions thoughtfully and insightfully. Dr Khan is the one of the best in his field, and I am very grateful to having been under his care. I continue to live a very athletic lifestyle as a result of a successful outcome of my surgery.

This is the third time I have seen Mr Khan due to previous shoulder and knee injury. I had no hesitation in seeing Mr Khan for the new shoulder injury on the other side as the two previous operations went so well along with my rehabilitation following the operations. I am currently recovering from my latest operation and would recommend Mr Khan without reservation.

Mr Amer Khan

Thank you very much for your kind comments and feedback. It has been a pleasure to treat you.
