Tom said, “On my first consultation Mr Akhtar made me feel very comfortable and clearly articulated the potential scenarios if I underwent the operation, which gave me confidence to pursue the operation”. The surgery was to be a day case keyhole procedure where Kash would assess the meniscus tear and repair it if at all possible, otherwise it would be minimally trimmed if needed. Tom explained, “At this point I had dealt with the pain for six months and I was determined to find a solution. I left the consultation feeling confident that surgery would be the correct decision for me”.
In April 2018 Tom underwent surgery at the Fortius Surgical Centre in Marylebone. The operation went very smoothly, lasted only 20 minutes and he was back home a few hours after the operation.
