Couldn't ask for better treatment, from the first appointment everything was made perfectly clear and I knew what to expect, one of the first people I saw after coming round from surgery and again explained everything at a level I could understand. I had A.c.l revision stage 1 and was told to expect pain and discomfort but experienced very little, from reading other people's experiences with same operation im very happy mr Attar did my operation and the scar is extremely neat in comparison with others I seen. Would definitely recommend mr Attar to anyone with knee issues

I have been a patient of Mr Fahad Attar for some time; it is always beneficial to have a consultant that you feel you have great confidence in, but it is even more beneficial to have one that you can communicate with easily and know that your views/concerns are considered with care and respect. I cannot speak to highly of my treatment (in every context) by Mr Attar and I firmly believe that there is a rapport between us that has enhanced both my experience and treatment. A first class consultant.

When going through my insurance through work, Mr Attar come very highly recommended my a work colleague and friend who had surgery on his knee off Mr Attar and that settled any nerves pre op I had and once I met Mr Attar I was very happy and assured I made the correct decision, my surgery went smoothly and the rehab has been great through the guidance off Mr Attar in the aftercare and physiotherapy. I will always recommend Mr Attar to anyone I know who have any problems with their knee as I couldn’t of asked for better care. I can’t thank him enough.

Firstly, I would like to say thank you to Mr Attar and his team, they were all marvellous. From the initial consultancies to my actual day of the operation, I felt very informed with the information I was given, and although I was nervous about the injection in my back the anesthetists made me laugh and I felt very comfortable, and it was pain free. Mr Attar has been very professional and caring , he explained every step of the operation to me, it has made my life so much better since I have had it done, and I do not suffer from that horrible pain that made my life unbearable. Thank you so much. The after care in the hospital was outstanding and I went home with lots of advice on what to do and what not to do! Many thanks Mr Attar.

I had Partial Knee replacement performed by Mr Fahad Attar. The surgery has been a great success. Before the operation i had a permanent limp and a lot of lower leg pain due to my leg beginning to bow due to my Cartilage failure . Mr Attar quickly identified my problem and sent me for some full length X-rays which confirmed his thoughts. I am glad to say he agreed to perform the operation. He explained everything included and the risks involved with the procedure. The follow up care and appointments have been very professional. I would recommend Mr Attar to anyone considering any lower limb surgery. I am delighted with my outcome, six months in I have full mobility and none of the lower leg pain experienced previously.

I was extremely impressed with Mr. Attar from the first meeting where he was pleasant and polite but also very informative about what was required and the procedures involved. As a diabetic after my operation my blood sugar count went extremely high and the hospital staff became worried, Mr Attar visited every day including a Sunday afternoon to check on my condition and the problem was quickly resolved. Post operative physio and review meetings were also excellent and informative and I now feel the whole process was a great success. If I should require treatment for my other hip or anything similar I would certainly request that Mr. Attar did the procedure. I would also have no hesitation in recommending anyone in a similar position to try to receive treatment from the brilliant Mr. Attar to whom I am extremely grateful.

Mr Attar has given me my life back. I had a total knee replacement back in October 2018 and I can honestly say its the best decision I have ever made. I was extremely apprehensive about the operation but Mr Attar went through step by step about what would happen both pre and post operation. My mobility has improved from being able to only walk a short distance to completing a 6 mile hike in the Lake District, this is something that I thought I would never be able to achieve.

09-05-2018
I cannot thank Mr Attar enough for the level of service I received. From the initial meeting I felt reassured by his level of knowledge and ability to put me at my ease. He was able to address the problems with my knee and fix it to a point I am very happy with. Being self-employed I was worried about how this procedure would affect my ability to work, but after the operation I did everything Mr Attar and the physiotherapist recommended and was back in work within a few months. This was a great relief to me. I consider him to be caring, highly skilled and am very happy to have received treatment from him. Big thanks.

Mr Attar is an excellent orthopaedic surgeon who has successfuly osteotomised my femur to realign it to prevent further arthritic degeneration. The scars are small and healed well, I am almost fully recovered 6 months after and hope to resume pre-op activities. His pre-op care and post-op care have been first class and I am a retired Emergency Medicine doctor myself.

Mr Attar was approachable and attentive. Maybe he could have been a little more informative about my procedure.

Mr Fahad Attar

I am very sorry to hear that you felt you did not get enough information about your procedure. I strive hard to make sure all my patients receive the best care and complete information about their diagnosis, treatment and management. If you felt that the information wasn't detailed enough or you needed to discuss more about it, please contact my secretary and we can arrange another appointment to go through it in further detail.

01-05-2018
From the outset Mr Attar understood my angst that the injury was causing, not just the physical aspect but the mental frustration that the knee injury was causing and my incapacity to function fully. The result of the operation was an immediate reduction in pain and functionality measurably improved. I greatly appreciate Mr Attar's expertise and assistance. Thank you Mr Attar.

I always found Mr Attar to be extremely polite and professional with plenty of time for my questions.

Both operations (knee replacements) went very smoothly, far exceeding my expectations! I was treated extremely well by all staff involved - Mr. Attar himself, his surgical team, all ward staff and follow-up physiotherapists. I have nothing but the highest praise for Mr Attar and the hospital and would like you to pass on my thanks and deep gratitude.

Mr Attar performed a total knee replacement on my left knee in February 2017. It was a complete success and, when my right knee started giving me pain, I had no hesitation in consulting him once again. X-rays showed bone-on-bone and Mr Attar performed a second total knee replacement in December 2017, again a complete success. On both occasions I used the NHS ‘Choose and Book’ system and my operations took place at BMI The Alexandra. I'm walking normally again and can confidently recommend Mr Attar (as well as ‘Choose and Book’ and The Alex).

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

All aspects of my recent knee replacement surgery, from first consultation, through surgery, and after care were excellent.

05-01-2018
I was referred to Mr Attar by my physiotherapist. I was given an initial appointment very quickly indeed. Mr Attar discussed all my options thoroughly and after deciding upon the path of hip surgery, my appointment was equally soon. My care at The Beaumont was very organised and caring and I was well impressed with the operation itself. Mr Attar arranged the appropriate physio therapy following my discharge from hospital and I could find no fault with any of the follow upgrade procedures. All in all, I feel as I had first class care and I am certainly pleased with the results.

I would like to say that I can't speak to highly of the care and the way I was taken through everything from pre op to post op. I was very apprehensive pre op and I was taken through every step of the procedure and made to feel very comfortable at all times. The care at the hospital was first class and I would have no problem putting it forward to anyone to have ops there. I want to thank Dr Attar for everything he has done pre and post op.

Mr. Attar has carried out 2 total hip replacements for me. The left hip in 2016 and just 6 weeks ago the right hip. I am already walking without crutches and this latest replacement like the first seems at this stage to be a success with no pain and good movement in both hips. Mr. Attar's diagnosis and consultations have been first class and he will always return calls on issues you may have. From diagnosis to the operations have been speedy and the surgery has been excellent. I will see Mr. Attar hopefully only once more at my follow-up consultation in a few months.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

28-11-2017
Mr Attar performed both my total knee replacements over a 5 month period and at every stage of the process from the initial consultation through to the post op reviews, he kept me fully informed and always had time to answer any questions and allay any (unfounded) fears I might have had. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Attar as consultant of choice to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation and needing knee surgery.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

27-11-2017
From my first meeting with Mr Attar I found him to be professional, courteous, friendly and very easy to talk to. This was my second knee replacement, the first performed by another surgeon, from the time the anaesthetic wore off I knew this was going to be a much easier recovery and it has proved exactly that. From pre-op through admission to my post op visit Mr Attar has been excellent and if I ever needed orthopaedic surgery again in the future I would request a referral back to him. If any friends or relatives were to be under Mr Attar I would assure them that they will receive the best treatment they could ever wish for.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Over the last two years Mr Attar has carried out hip replacement operations on my left and right legs. Both operations were totally successful and I am now back doing nearly all of my previous activities - walking, cycling, swimming, without any discomfort. Mr Attah has been at all times most pleasant, very keen to explain everything and full of hints on just how much exercise his patients should do during their recovery period. Operations are never pleasant things to have but his totally professional attitude has been much appreciated.
