About

Following Mr Ramesh's higher surgical training, he joined the Specialist register for Orthopaedic Surgery in 2005. Only one year later he was awarded the DePuy fellowship and then the International American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society's travelling fellowship, the following year. These fellowships have given Mr Ramesh the opportunity to train with surgeons across North America, including New York, Toronto, Boston and Washington, to name but a few.

Mr Ramesh actively participates in clinical research and academic development, having been invited to present his work both nationally and internationally at numerous Orthopaedic conferences. In addition to these invited lectures and international presentations, he also has three publications in peer reviewed journals.

Practicing as part of the team of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons at Kingston Hospital, he also sees patients at Parkside Hospital, New Victoria Hospital, New Maldon Diagnostics and St Anthony's Hospital. He provides a consultant led foot and ankle service as well as offering second opinions of complex foot and ankle cases. Mr Ramesh strives to provide the best possible patient care, dedicating time to working closely with his colleagues to help reduce patient recovery time and improve surgical outcomes.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Mr Ramesh could not have been more kind, friendly, knowledgeable, professional and reassuring - absolutely charming! Getting an appointment was not too difficult and communication with his secretary was easy and her responses prompt. Recovery as yet incomplete so I can't comment on the final outcome, but I'm confident my foot will be as good as new!

10-03-2019
Mr Ramesh carried out bunion surgery on my left foot - he suggested I could expect a 70-80% improvement in my condition. I understand the recovery period to be some time and so far at 7 weeks post op, my bones and scars are healing well. It is clear that the shape of my toes is now much better and generally aesthetically pleasing and is a great improvement on my condition. Overall I am very satisfied with the consultation, operation and results.

I can only base my experience on my short appointments with Mr Ramesh and how my foot is now , two weeks after my operation. Mr Ramesh was very pleasant to deal with and extremely efficient. My foot operation resulted in less pain than I expected and today, once the bandages are off, I can see how neat the surgery has been. Mr Ramesh has been very clear and instructive on how I should treat my foot after the operation and this clarity has helped the speed of my recovery. I am grateful to him.

Me Ramesh helped us enormously with his calm manner during my first visit following a fractured ankle. He explained very clearly what needed to happen . He performed a very successful ankle surgery and I am now recovering very well faster than I thought. He also suggested the use of a knee scooter which was extremely useful during the time I was not allowed to weight bare on the operated leg .

I found Mr Ramesh very approachable, he listened to my problem regarding my foot and concerns I had as to a possible operation and we discussed all options. Following an X-ray it was very apparent I should proceed with surgery. Mr Ramesh explained the procedure and put my mind at rest as to the outcome. I found Mr Ramesh to be professional and knowledgeable and his manner made me feel confident that I was making the right decision. My foot is recovering quicker than expected which I attrubute to the skills and expertise of the surgeon. I would highly recommend Mr Ramesh to anyone requiring surgery in his chosen field.

My second operation took place on the 27th September having the same results as the first one. I received the best of service and attention by Mr Ramesh, before, during and after my operation. The professional, experienced, kind and friendly way I was treated by Mr Ramesh on both my operations, gave me confidence, pain free feet, and helped me to go back to the sport I love, which is walking! I wish to Mr Ramesh a much more successful future to both, professional and personal life

I am 81 and used to ski, play many sports, three at county level, and nearly made the 1960 Olympics in modern pentathlon. I was regarded as the best place kicker of a rugby ball in schools rugby in the days when the ball was kicked with the front end of the foot rather than the modern method. I was also in the army for several years so my body has been subjected to more than an average amount of wear and tear while avoiding any serious injuries. My weight is still the same as it was when I left school 63 years ago and my annual checks indicate that I am in good working order despite having three crushed vertebrae from a rugby injury and having been given a 2% chance of survival due to a squamous cell carcinoma eight years ago. What began as a niggling pain on the outside of my right foot two years ago gradually became more painful until it started to hurt all day a few weeks ago. Having been assured that there was nothing wrong by a chiropodist, a physiotherapist and my GP I arranged for my foot to be X-Rayed and was advised to see a Mr Pal Ramesh, with whom I made an appointment a few days hence. He is a very charming and pleasant gentleman and his attitude and professionalism gives one absolute confidence in him. He could not find anything wrong structurally with my foot even though it is a size larger than my other one due to Grade 3 lymphoedema in my leg, which I have had for over six years - the aftermath of chemo/electron/radiotherapy. He then drew the outline of my foot onto a sheet of paper, cut out a small section exactly where the pain was, gave me the rest of the sheet, recommended that I should buy a pair of insoles and use the sheet of paper as a template to cut out a piece exactly where he had done. I followed his advice and the pain disappeared instantly and has not returned. I now have four different makes of insoles, all with different thicknesses, and they all 'work' perfectly. I wrote to Pal once I was sure that he had cured the problem and could not resist mentioning that in days of yore some service companies, especially garages, used to have a sign on their walls saying 'The impossible we can do immediately, miracles take a little longer.' I was very pleased to tell Pal that he had performed an instant miracle. My daughter is a private medical consultant and my wife and I have consulted quite a number of top surgeons and physicians over the years so we have a fair amount of experience of what they are like and their different attitudes towards their patients. Pal Ramesh is the best consultant whom I have ever come across and been treated by. His presence gives one confidence from the outset and he has that rare gift of making one feel that he or she is the only patient that he has in his portfolio. It is with the greatest pleasure that I give him the highest recommendation possible.

I am lucky that Mr P.Rameh's name came on the list of specialists provided by my insurers. My procedure was Osteotomy for Hallux Valgus correction. Mr Ramesh consolted me before and after the procedure also spend time to give professional answers to my questions. The procedure on my right foot, that was pain free, gave successful results and 5 weeks after I am in position to walk properly and be back almost fully, to my day to day activities. Grateful to Mr Ramesh for his professional guidance and kind support, I look forward to repeating the same procedure on the left foot soon.

The experience I have had of Mr Ramesh has been best-in-class from my first consultation to our post-operation follow up conversation. He is friendly, clear and thorough in his explanations. I was clear at each step of the way on the issues with my foot and ankle, what the operation would entail and what the post-operative recovery period would require. Mr Ramesh instilled absolute confidence in me, and represents the best medical care I have experienced.

I saw Mr Ramesh with plantar fasciitis, inflammation of my big toe and restriction in mobility in my ankle. I had been unable to walk properly for 5 months due to pain . Following a steroid injection and 3 sessions of shock wave therapy , my pain has gone completely gone. Yes my leg is still stiff and my mobility needs work, but I am pain free! Mr Ramesh surpassed all my expectations and I would highly recommend him.

The NHS walk-in centre had told me all they could do was buddy strap my broken little toe and that three days was too soon to worry about it healing at an angle sticking out away from the other toes. Mr Ramesh took x-rays and established I was correct to be concerned. He then straightened the toe under a local anesthetic and rechecked it. I am very happy how he managed to fit doing the procedure in around his other commitments that morning and with the result.

I recently ruptured my Achilles tendon (complete rupture) and needed to see a consultant quickly. After doing some online research I booked an appointment with Mr Ramesh and from there on was very pleased with the initial consultation and subsequent treatment. Mr Ramesh took the time to understand what my desired outcome was and then clearly explained the options to me and the end result was surgery. The procedure went according to plan and the follow up to date has been great, based on my current experience I would recommend Mr Ramesh !

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

I would thoroughly recommend this surgery & Mr Ramesh. In the lead up to having the operation people winced when I told them what I was having, so I was pretty scared. But I can honestly say there was very little pain or discomfort. I was able to hobble around the house from day one and certainly by the end of week one I was able to start working on my laptop. It’s a little frustrating not being completely mobile but I was just relieved not to be in pain.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Mr Ramesh was clinically and surgically excellent and equally good at communicating the procedure and the aftercare I would highly recommend him

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Mr Ramesh is a very approachable and caring professional. Following successful bunionectomies in November 2017 and early March 2018, I have spoken of and recommended him in the highest regard to my GP, family and friends. I would urge anyone who is considering a bunionectomy to go and see him. Sixteen weeks post op, the precision of Mr Ramesh’s work has resulted in me experiencing very little discomfort, no pain, and barely visible scarring. I was pleased I chose the New Victoria Hospital for both operations as his team and all of the NVH staff were excellent. I hope my experience will help others.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

20-03-2018
I would like to say how pleased I have been throughout the process of having surgery to remove a painful bunion and toe straightening. From the information given prior to the operation to the postoperative consultation, I have been very impressed. I had previously postponed the procedure due to the time to recover, how this would impact my job and home lift plus feedback that it was very painful.I can only say that from my experience it wasn't painful at all. Dr Ramesh advised that I needed to take two weeks of rest with my foot elevated for most of the time. I followed these instructions and was even able to work with my laptop in the 2nd week of recovery. It certainly was not as disruptive as I originally thought. My wounds healed very well , a neat scar and the swelling has now reduced so am able to walk further each day and I am back to my normal routine two months after initial surgery. Thank you again for your considerate approach and looking after me so well.With the added bobus of having a straight foot. Thank you Dr Ramesh.
