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.

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.

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

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.
