  • “Having ruptured my achilles tendon I consulted Mr. Richard Samarji.  The procedure resulted in a 6cm implant and reconstruction of the Achilles.  I would highly recommend Mr. Samarji.  Not only did he successfully operate, but the scar is hardly noticeable. I am grateful to Mr. Samarji for undertaking this procedure and would have no hesitation recommending him”.  JC

  • “After years of pain and previous treatments that did not resolve anything I was referred to Mr. Samarji who was able to reassure me by explaining everything to me, so I felt I knew what was happening at every stage.  My surgery was successful and I am well on the road to recovery thanks to Mr. Samarji’s skill.  I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a surgeon for anyone with hallux rigidus”.  AC - Joint Fusion Great Toe
