Such a kind man. Professional and caring. Waiting time was good, we tried everything before opting for surgery. A massive thank you. I actually walked along cliffs in France a couple of weeks ago- something I’ve dreamed of doing. 3 years of agony pre surgery. Best decision I made and the best consultant too.
Tibialis posterior tendon reconstruction - July 2023
My procedure was not a straightforward ankle fusion. Mr Mahadevan kept me fully informed at all times both before and after the operation. My recovery was virtually pain free and was much quicker than anticipated. I now regret not having the operation earlier as I struggled to walk (with some pain) for about a year before I saw Mr Mahadevan.
Ankle fusion - June 2023
Mr Mahadevan was very professional and informative. We made a plan after my X-ray and I am so pleased with how I have healed after surgery. I have just gone back for my other foot and I am excited to see the outcome which I trust will be just as great! Looking forward to a lifetime of happy walking and no pain in the future. Thank you!
Bunion - April 2023
Mr Mahadevan put me at ease from the first time I met him for a consultation. He explained everything about my procedure, allowing time for questions. My post op care was equally as reassuring. He is a true professional and a lovely man.
Bunion - Sept 2022
Mr Mahadevan was extremely helpful. He took the time to explain the problem I was having with my ankle and helped me understand how I could help myself and avoid any surgery. We went through techniques that would improve the discomfort and referred me to his web site for specific exercises. I was really impressed with his knowledge, attitude and relaxed manner. He put me at ease, made me feel involved in my own treatment and left me feeling much more positive about the outcome. An excellent specialist with no ego! I couldn’t praise him highly enough and wish that there were more like him.
Achilles problem and heel spur - Aug 2022
After an initial examination Mr Mahadevan explained my problem simply and clearly. He also explained the options available and the possible consequences of each option. Having mutually agreed that an operation would be the best way forward for me he performed an arthroscopy of my ankle and I am very happy with the outcome. After the operation he clearly explained the detail of what had been done and what I may expect during my recovery. Throughout this process Mr Mahadevan conducted our interactions in a positive and friendly manner. I would certainly recommend Mr Mahadevan to anyone with ankle problems.
Anterior spurs and arthritis - Aug 2022
Mr Mahadevan was incredible when explaining the results to the issues I have been experiencing. Showing sound knowledge and being able to explain thoroughly every inch of what was wrong. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for fast and detailed answers to where and why you are experiencing pain.
Peroneal tendon pain - July 2022
Dev put me at ease, listened carefully, quickly diagnosed my problem, clearly explained the procedure (including videos) showing how proud he was of his work, and made me laugh. He also made me better!
Osteochondral lesion - July 2022
So easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and highly professional and reassuring. He is passionate about what he does.
Rugby injury - June 2022
Mr Mahadevan was very engaging and patient centred throughout my treatment. He kept me well informed about the symptoms and the possible range of options for treatment. Post operation we met to discuss my rehabilitation and he again suggested options such as physiotherapist and splints. Overall an excellent experience.
June 2022 - Osteophytes and arthritis
After suffering with the symptoms for over six months Dr. Mahadevan diagnosed and recommended a treatment that saw me completely symptom free within two weeks. What more could you ask ?
May 2022 - Plantar fasciitis
I have found Mr Mahadevan a pleasure to visit because he has a friendly, upbeat attitude which is reassuring to someone like myself with serious joint problems from Rh arthritis. He is clearly an expert in his field of foot and ankle surgery with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I very much appreciate the care and advice that Mr Mahadevan has given me. The bunion surgery that he carried out for me in 2019 went superbly well, healed without any problems and I am very pleased and grateful to report that the foot has given me no trouble since. A very recent visit to Mr Mahadevan involved him carrying out a soft tissue cyst drainage procedure which he made very straight forward and it had immediate good effect for which I am very relieved and grateful. Thank you Mr Mahadevan and your team for your superb care as always!

A brilliant consultant who took time to listen and make me feel heard. I felt Mr Mahadevan explored all possible causes and options and left me feeling reassured.
Feb 2022 - Foot drop
I found my treatment by Mr Mahadevan to be excellent. He is very approachable and explained all my options and we choose the least invasive one to start which worked on one foot. For the other foot I needed the Morton's neuroma to be removed and this was achieved quickly and with very little pain. I am pleased to say that both feet are almost fully recovered.
Feb 2022 - Morton's neuroma
Dev is a likeable man who makes you feel at ease straight away. He very quickly diagnosed my problem, and explained it all in terms I could easily understand. He listened carefully to everything I said, and also checked that I understood everything he said, which filled me with confidence. The surgery was trouble free, and appears to have alleviated most of my pain for which I'm very grateful.
Feb 2022 - Pain in left ankle after rolling over often
From my very first consultation with Mr Mahadevan it was clear to me that he is a thoroughly professional and, as you would expect, extremely knowledgeable. His warm and friendly manner meant I actually enjoyed my consultations. Mr Mahadevan made a speedy diagnosis and was able to resolve my problematic ankle very quickly. Thank you so much!
Jan 2022 - Achilles tendinopathy
Mr Mahadevon was amazing and changed my life. I first came to see him in a lot of pain unable to walk properly after trying a few treatments I had an operation performed by Dr Mahadevon. I am now pain-free and looking forward to getting running again. Couldn’t recommend Dr Mahadevon enough.
Jan 2022 - Morton's neuroma
Having seen quite a few consultants over the years, Mr Mahadevan is easily one of the nicest I have meet. Following an MRI, I left understanding exactly what was wrong, what I can do to manage it and what my options are if / when things get worse. Mr Mahadevan was just lovely - he explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, listened to and answered all my questions and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

From pre-op to aftercare I have felt well informed and confident in the treatment I was having. The surgery and treatment has meant I can look forward to more years of activity, now pain free.
Jan 2022 - Haglund deformity
- 2021 -
I took to Mr Mahadevan on first contact. He explained to me all aspects of the procedure that I was contemplating and presented all options in a frank and honest way. I needed a strong advocate for the procedure suggested and he did not waiver at any stage in assuring me that ankle fusion was the right choice. In this he presented irrefutable evidence that, after some months, matters would turn out well. He was so correct in his judgement. Once decided the procedure was carried out with all appropriate feedback and reassurance throughout. The recovery period was a hard and rocky road of three months plaster cast but I was well prepared for what to expect. Monitoring visits and three plaster changes were carried out by him personally and this unusual (in my experience) and welcome involvement provided every opportunity to discuss progress and any concerns. It has now been seven months and I am totally recovered and able to do so much more than I could previously. This means 20 Km road bike, 40 minutes of Pilates, and 3km dog walk each and every fay. 18 holes of golf are a breeze. In conclusion, this is all down to Mr Mahadevan’s expertise. I am so grateful to him and all of his staff for what they have done for me.
Dec 2021 - Arthritic ankle at stage 4
Thank so much Dr Mahadevan, my foot is better than it has been in years and I could not be happier with the result. This has changed every day for me where I have no aches or pains whatsever. Thank you again!
Nov 2021 - Secondary ossification centre
We very much appreciate all the care and advice that we received from Mr Mahadevan. We consider ourselves very lucky to have seen this excellent specialist. As soon as he saw my daughter who had a serious foot injury, he took a keen interest and was completely committed to getting her back literally on her feet. He is not only well qualified and clearly very good at what he does, but he has that innate interest and is just so good at getting through to teenagers - significantly in terms of advice on how much sport she could anticipate doing throughout the recovery journey (starting from nothing due to the extent of the foot injury) and when to slow down to ensure a good recovery. His positive attitude and practical advice was invaluable. This ability to listen and offer sound advice is a great soft skill that not all first rate surgeons have so we are very grateful and also consider ourselves lucky to have been allocated this consultant.
Nov 2021 - Bone bruising and ankle injury
Mr Mahadevan is firstly a great person and secondly a great consultant. Like everyone in medicine, he is busy but he always treats you as though you’re his only patient. He shows respect for his patients and inspires confidence without being arrogant in the slightest. I value his honesty and the way he speaks in terms the lay person will understand. This helps build trust and an environment of positivity.
I would not hesitate to recommend him. Full stop.

June 2021 - Cross-over toe and bunion
Dr Mahadevan is very professional and knowledgable. He answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease about my condition as well as the recommended treatment options. He carried out an aspiration of my cyst and although it didn’t solve the problem (as he predicted), I look forward to seeing him again to undergo surgery which was originally proposed.
June 2021 - Cyst on foot
Outstanding surgeon who fills you with confidence with his calm and professional nature from the very beginning. Having had this surgery before from another hospital that failed I was apprehensive but have to say the whole experience was amazing.
June 2021 - Broken foot
Incredibly knowledgeable and explained the injury and surgery that was required brilliantly. Put me at ease from the get go and I could not be happier with the outcome.
May 2021 - Pain at base of big toe - Cheilectomy required
Once he had X-ray and MRI results, Mr Mahadevan explained to me the issues they showed in a very friendly straightforward easy to understand way, and drew little diagrams to demonstrate. I was grateful for his kindness and reassurance, and particularly impressed by his readiness to "sign me off", no pressure for treatment, surgery, steroid injections - a 'leave well alone if not strictly necessary' professional approach. But - with the offer to get back to him if things longer term don't settle, for targeted steroid injections. Very glad to have sought his experience and advice.
May 2021 - Pain along arch sides feet, found to be due to joint deterioration
Mr Mahadevan is one of the most personable consultants I have ever met. He was so patient, knowledgeable, thorough, but more importantly, he was able to communicate technical information about my ankle in layman's terms. When I left the appointment, I felt that I really understood what was going on in my ankle. His advice was excellent and I have every confidence that by adhering to it, I will have less pain and more movement. Although my days of competitive sport are behind me, it was great to talk to someone with experience and understanding of it. At no point did I feel rushed and I felt that I could ask him any question without feeling in awe of the science! I cannot recommend him enough.
May 2021 - Ankle osteochondral defect

I felt confident that Mr Mahadevan completely understood the problems I was having with my feet. The treatment proposed was agreed and carried out very quickly with no problems. I would recommend Mr Mahadevan for foot and ankle surgery happily to anyone.
I could not recommend Mr Mahadevan more highly. I was first referred to Mr Mahadevan under the NHS at Royal Berkshire Hospital as a specialist ankle consultant when my fractured ankle did not initially heal. He was the only doctor I had come into contact thus far who I felt had given me his full attention as well as being extremely keen to discuss all queries and questions I had, giving me knowledge and confidence about my injury and recovery prospects. Together we discussed my options with regards to treating my ankle and I felt extremely confident when the decision was made (jointly) to operate.......
A charming helpful man who goes out of his way to help you. Very professional
The whole experience of being treated by Mr Mahadevan has been outstanding. I was recommended by my orthotist to see Mr Mahadevan after seeing several other professionals with my Tibialis Posterior tendon difficulties. He instantly put me at ease with clear explanations of my options and giving me realistic expectations as to the recovery process. The whole process from the initial consultation, the surgery and the final consultation was superb and not only did I have a very positive outcome but felt very well looked after and valued throughout the process. I cannot thank Mr Mahadevan and his practice manager enough for their support throughout.
In the moment of meeting Mr Mahadevan I was out at ease. His knowledge, professionalism and ease to talk to was second to none. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

Mr Mahadevan was immediately engaging on first consultation. He knew exactly what to look for and the treatment required. The operation went very well with no side effects/ problems. The 5" scar left has practically disappeared. He is highly professional and I certainly would recommend him to anyone requiring treatment. Post operative consultation was very easy and I have full confidence in the work he has completed.
I found Mr Mahadevan to be very charming. He has an easy friendly manner while maintaining a professional relationship. Mr Mahadevan explained everything in a way which was simple to understand and he explained the procedure at every step of the way. I would use Mr Mahadevan for future surgery and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for foot and ankle surgery
Very professional and reassuring. Makes you feel relaxed and you just know you are in good hands
Mr Mahadevan was clearly knowledgable and was genuinely interested in the best outcome for me rather than undertaking surgery prematurely

Dev listened to my symptoms and arranged for an x-ray there and then. He gave me three possible causes, which we discussed and we agreed on the best way forward. I was impressed with his subject knowledge and his confidence in the best action to take. the procedure itself was quick and painless, with excellent follow up appointments too. he also gave sound advice and tips which I'm still using today.
Mr Mahadevan is extremely professional, friendly and competent and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
A friendly, confident, knowledgeable consultant with a refreshingly flexible and accommodating attitude.
