    I tend to share all my knee patients who need a surgical opinion with Mr Adil Ajuied.

  • byDr Lisa Michelle Hyland, GP

    Mr Ajuied was recommended to me from a medical colleague after I had a disastrous time with an orthopaedic surgeon who wanted to operate on my knee. After a thorough clinical examination Mr Ajuied advised I did not need surgery but would require intensive physiotherapy. He reviewed my MRI images and re-iterated this. I am very happy to report that my knee is far better. Given that he is an orthopaedic surgeon the fact he advised against surgery shows what a remarkable clinician he is.
