"The service provided by Mr Ajis is always tremendous, he always cares about his patients."
"He has supported me through this surgery very well, he makes sure you are happy and is very much hands-on and personable."
He makes you feel you’re in good hands
I had a scarf osteotomy with a few extras by Dr Ajis at Southlands Hospital. It’s now just over a week after surgery and I’m in for removal of stitches tomorrow. I felt really comfortable with Dr Ajis, He went through everything with me on the consultation and on the day of my operation. He is a very nice guy and has such a friendly approachable face, He makes you feel you’re in good hands. He is a great professional and I would highly recommend him. I look forward to improving the pain I had in my feet and hopefully, they will look a bit nicer than they did. I have not had any problems so far and have been strict with the healing process and will continue to do so.
My operation has been amazingly successful
I injured my right ankle in April 2010. Having suffered great instability and pain for the following years, I was referred to Mr Adam Ajis at Goring Hospital in West Sussex on the NHS, following failed cortisone injections. Mr. Ajis was fantastic. Very reassuring, kind and took all the time I required to answer any queries or concerns. I had surgery in March 2015. My operation of ankle ligament reconstruction surgery and ankle arthroscopy has been amazingly successful; I am walking better than I have in years. He did not rush me in my recovery time, and was very pleased with my progress and the operation.
Together we chose the best option for me
At my initial appointment Mr Ajis listened to my explanation of the problem with my R big toe. He showed me the X-ray and gave me the 2 options for surgery. Together we chose the best option for me. I did not feel rushed at all. Having my surgery at Goring Hall was as pleasant an experience as is possible with any operation. At all times I felt resected and confident in the care I received from everyone involved. Mr Ajis came to see me before and after surgery which ut me at ease. I had my 1 stitch removed by the nurse after 2 weeks and saw the physio who gave me exercises to do. At my 6 weeks check I saw Mr Ajis again and said how very pleased I was with his skilful surgery. He answered my questions patiently and appeared to be pleased with the end result himself! I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Ajis.
I am extremely pleased with the progress
I am pleased to be able to advise that I have nothing but praise for the treatment I received from Mr Ajis. I found him a charming person who put me at ease right from the first consultation. He was very thorough and clear when advising me what procedure he proposed for me and was happy to answer any questions I had in a way that was easy for me to understand. Following the operation he again explained to me in a clear manner what he had done and what the followup procedure would be in connection with the removal of the stitches and the pin and the proposed time scale for my recovery.
At the present time I am extremely pleased with the progress I am making and have been pleasantly surprised with how quickly I have got back to walking, driving my car and riding my bike albeit that, as is to be expected, the foot does swell up by the end of the day.
Mr Ajis went out of his way to help me find the right treatment
I saw Mr Ajis with a great toe injury sustained after an accident. From my first consultation I received a clear diagnosis and a decisive treatment plan. Mr Ajis explained in detail the nature of my injury and the treatment it required. I had many questions which were answered thoroughly and without impatience. Throughout all of my treatment I was treated with warmth and empathy. Mr Ajis went out of his way to help me find the right treatment option at the right hospital. My treatment was successful and, most importantly for me I was back up on my feet and working at full strength again after 7 weeks. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Ajis to other patients.
He was caring and courteous
I have had treatment on my leg following a rupture in the tendons. Mr Ajis was very attentive right from the start. He was caring and courteous and I had every confidence in him. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who had a lower leg injury. With his help and further treatment by a physiotherapist I am now almost back to normal.
I wore high heels last week for the first time
For several years I had a bunion and hammertoe on the right foot but lived with them. For some reason, the toe became very painful 2 years ago and I, therefore, decided to have the operation. On arrival, I had a series of X Rays taken of my foot and saw Mr Adam Ajis directly. I was impressed by his open and friendly approach and felt immediately reassured. All went well, I felt at ease and totally unworried. I was amazed at the lack of pain following the operation. I was completely off pain killers 3 days after surgery. My foot after 10 weeks looks very good, the best it has been for years if still slightly swollen around the toes. I am back in normal shoes though I still try to wear sensible as much as I can but wore high heels last week for the first time and felt comfortable.
I would undoubtedly recommend Mr Adam Ajis to anyone. I felt at all times in good hands. When the time comes to have my right foot dealt with, it will certainly be with Mr Adam Ajis.
I would recommend him unreservedly
Mr Ajis was excellent from the very first time that I met him. He was very thorough and very clear about how he felt he could help me. He explained what he could do and the procedure he proposed and exactly what I should expect when I was to attend Goring Hall hospital. I met Mr Ajis again on the morning of my surgery and he again explained how the keyhole surgery he had planed would result in a fairly non-invasive solution to my problem. The surgery was very successful and when I returned for a follow-up consolation Mr Ajis was highly professional once again. I would recommend him unreservedly. The surgery has worked well and I am making a good and speedy recovery.
The original problem has been completely eliminated
I recently experienced severe pain under the ball of my foot when walking. He immediately diagnosed arthritis of the big toe, as well as other related problems and recommended surgery. Mr Ajis was very reassuring explaining to me in detail what he was planning to do. The operation was carried out in mid-June and the treatment I received from him and his team was first class in every way. Two months after the operation, my foot still swells up and I have been warned by Mr Ajis that this may happen for some time. However, the original problem has been completely eliminated, for which I am incredibly thankful.
I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Ajis, whom I consider to be an extremely skilful, kind and caring surgeon.
I wouldn’t hesitate to see him again
The repair to the torn tendon in my foot by Mr Ajis at Goring Hall Hospital was both professional, personal and understanding to the stress I was in. He explained in detail how the operation was to be carried out, and after the procedure, he explained what he had to do during the operation. I found Mr Ajis to be caring and patient both pre and post-operation. I wouldn’t hesitate to see him again if any further surgery was ever necessary. I highly recommend Goring Hall Hospital and all of the Staff.
You can barely see the scars
Dr Ajis is fantastic! He is extremely warm and friendly and puts you at ease. I am petrified of needles but manage to have an injection on my own (a nurse did hold my hand). The surgery its self is amazing. It is extremely neat and you can barely see the scars. My ankle feels remarkable, I just wish he still did hips.
I was able to drive after less than 4 weeks
…My second operation was a few months later as I had needed to postpone it due to a planned holiday. My treatment was as good as the previous time all the way through from my pre-op assessment to my final discharge by Mr. Ajis. Having keyhole surgery was even easier than the open surgery I had the first time and the wound healed very quickly. Once again I found I had no problems with walking after surgery or with any pain. I was able to drive after less than 4 weeks this time around.
I am delighted that I had the surgery carried out and would recommend the operation to anyone else who has bunions.
I was operated on in the morning and was back at home by mid-afternoon
I was experiencing severe pain on occasion, and a loss of support, causing me to lose stability. Mr Ajis examined me, recommending an MRI scan. The scan was done very quickly and a follow-up appointment followed very soon after that.
Mr Ajis explained that I had bone cysts on both ankles and that he could remove them and perform an arthroscopy to clean the joint of any debris that had built up over the years. I had the first procedure on the left ankle at Goring Hall Hospital as a day patient. I was operated on in the morning and was back at home by mid-afternoon. I can say that never did I have any pain as a result of this procedure…
From start to finish it was very efficient
Just to say a big thank you for the way my wife’s operation was carried out at Goring Hall. From start to finish it was very efficient, from the whole team at Goring Hall. So many thanks to Mr Ajis the consultant surgeon doing the operation.
I am very grateful for such good surgery
I have had extensive foot and ankle surgery following multiple fractures and ligament damage. I have been plated and screwed back together and healing well. I am getting good function back and I’ve been very impressed and pleased with the surgery from Mr. Ajis being a local podiatrist myself at Ferring Foot Clinic, and being very happy with my own foot and ankle surgery is obviously a very good way to recommend this surgeon.
I am very grateful for such good surgery as without it, I might not have regained the use of my foot and ankle again.
I am very pleased with the outcome
The whole experience for me has been outstanding. From first meeting Mr. Ajis who came highly recommended, I felt reassured about the whole journey I was about to take, which I was very apprehensive about.
All the staff I have met at Goring Hall throughout the whole process were very professional, kind and understanding.
I am very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Mr Ajis and his team to anyone in a similar situation.
It has turned out better than I expected
I am more than satisfied with the outcome of my bunion operation, performed by Mr. Ajis. He explained carefully and thoroughly the procedure he would use, and the likely outcome and it has turned out better than I expected. A great surgeon!
I would recommend no one else
A brilliant doctor who truly cares about his patients. When it comes to problems with the foot or ankle I would recommend no one else.
The surgery and the aftercare absolutely faultless
Mr Ajis is one of the best orthopedic surgeons I have met in a long time, I have nothing but praise for him, I had a bunion removed and the second toe straightened, I am so pleased with the outcome, from the consultation to the surgery and the aftercare absolutely faultless. I am awaiting one final operation, of which I know I will be as pleased with the outcome as i was with the last… And you Mr Ajis.
I am walking completely without pain
Mr Ajis has carried out two separate surgical procedures to rectify an arthritic condition, which previously made it difficult for me to walk. I was admitted as a day case where he administered a nerve block procedure to my foot immediately before surgery, so I felt no pain during the operation and felt little to no discomfort post-operatively during my rehabilitation period. His attentive demeanour is second to none and I much appreciated the time and trouble he went to in order to keep me informed, answered any questions I had. Six months after my operation and I am walking completely without pain, which has made a big difference to my quality of life. I cannot recommend him highly enough and I would never consider going elsewhere for foot surgery. A fine man, an excellent surgeon.
I would recommend Mr Ajis to anyone
I had problems with a broken ankle and needed injections in my ankle and eventually, the rods and plates removed. The care and attention I received was second to none and I had complete confidence in Mr Ajis and the procedures I had. He was always kind, considerate and explained what was about to happen. I would recommend Mr Ajis to anyone.
The whole procedure was completely painless
I had an Akin procedure and Bunionectomy under local anaesthetic. The whole procedure was completely painless and completed in 20 minutes.
A very pleasant person
I found Mr Ajis a very pleasant person and easy to talk to. He accurately diagnosed my problem, and after the operation I was completely without pain in my foot.
He has a friendly, relaxed and reassuring manner
After a bunionectomy many years ago, which was very successful for a long time, the toe began moving again two or three years ago. I was eventually referred to Mr Adam Ajis. Two months ago he performed a graft on the toe and so far this is progressing well. From the first consultation on Mr Ajis listened attentively, and, speaking to me as if I were a reasonably intelligent person, told me what he could do. He has a friendly, relaxed and reassuring manner, without ever losing his professionalism. This was quite different from my earlier experiences with the foot. I have no hesitation in endorsing the positive comments others have made, and in recommending his services.
Pain free in my ankle after 6 years!
Mr Ajis is a great surgeon, he listens to any concern you may have and explains what is going to happen also gives great care. It turned out that I needed another operation to try and correct the problem that I had in my ankle and he suggested a fairly new procedure that wasn’t available on the nhs but he pushed me through and he and his team have worked wonders, I am now healing very well and pain free in my ankle after 6 years!
I knew exactly what to expect
I would recommend Mr Ajis he explained the procedure fully beforehand so that I knew exactly what to expect and how to deal with the affected area after surgery. The instructions were easy to understand and follow and I’m sure this aided a speedy recovery. At the follow-up appointment, I felt at ease to be a be able to quiz Mr Ajis further regarding a pin removal.
He was professional at all times
Mr Ajis was very informative and reassuring about my surgery. He was professional at all times and allowed time for me to have all my questions answered without feeling rushed.
I’m looking forward to getting my sandals on again
I had correction surgery on my second toe as it was crossing my big toe. My shoes were rubbing it, it looked terrible, and was causing me pain. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis which was causing the movement and I’m in my early forties. Adam Ajis, very kindly, said he could correct this, which he did, beautifully. I rested for about three weeks and then was on the move again. Six weeks after everything was back to normal, no pain and my foot looks completely normal again, you would never know I had surgery on it. I’m looking forward to getting my sandals on again and not worried that people are looking at my funny toe! Thank you Dr Ajis (you clever man).
Thank you for all the help and advice
A highly professional and caring consultant. Mr Ajis made great improvements to an injury that has given me pain and restricted movement for over 30 years. No hesitation in recommending Mr Ajis. Thank you for all the help and advice that you have given me.
Totally recommend this lovely man
Many thanks to Mr Agis for the procedure of straightning three of my toes on l foot. I felt very comfortable in his care, things were explained and it all went just as he said it would. All the staff with him seemed relaxed and happy, which makes a happy patient. I may have to return to have my toes on the right foot straightened and I hope that it is Mr Ajis that will be doing it. Totally recommend this lovely man.
