Mr Mahadevan was personable and approachable but informative and showing his expertise in his chosen foot surgery field. It is four months after my operation and my foot has healed really well and I can now enjoy wearing strappy sandals again – no more unsightly toe or bunion!
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
I cannot recommend Mr Gallogly highly enough. Following various sports injuries and problems with her knees and ankles, and consultations with a variety of consultants, my teenage daughter was able to return to playing top level sport thanks to Nick Gallogly. His approach is very hands on and practical, and his manner is so likeable and cheerful, that he immediately put my daughter at ease and we both have utter faith in him. My daughter now wears customised Orthotics, personally overseen by Nick, which have enabled her to return to sport pain-free. Seeing Nick Gallogly completely turned things around for us.
I wish that I had seen Nick Gallogly as soon as my symptoms began to show a need for treatment. I had seen physios, podiatrists and a couple of foot and ankle specialists prior to seeing Nick and my condition had managed to get from an initial partial tear to the Tibialis Posterior Tendon to Stage 2 Tibialis Posterior Tendon Insufficiency.
The conservative treatment that Nick gave me not only got me pain free at night but in a position where even surgery couldn’t have improved my situation. At all times he was exceptionally considerate to my physical and emotional well-being and I always felt that he gave me time in each appointment to ask all of the questions that I had and to explain the process to me.
We felt that not only did he know what he was doing with regards to my treatment but he also really cared.
I have spent 12 years looking for an insole that not just allows me to walk but also reduces the amount of pain I go through every day. I have seen numerous specialists within that time and usually this is a very stressful period. Because it takes 3 to 5 attempts to make the insole that fits the needs of my foot. Nick was the first consultant I have met to be excited about the challenge. Not only did he have it designed and made within 10 days, It fit me perfectly first time with complete relief of pain.

Dear Mr Mahadevan,
I am so pleased with the result – the scar is already barely visible and it is a treat to be free of the discomfort when walking.
Dear Mr Mahadevan,
Thank you for remaining with me on my surgical journey with the encouragement and kindness you have shown me. I only wish I had plucked up the courage to have the confidence to share my pain earlier, but in hindsight, you were the miracle I needed.
Dear Mr Mahadevan
Thank you for ‘sorting out’ my problem toe …. I have now no discomfort from my second left toe (in fact I am totally unaware of it). I am very grateful to you.
Dear Mr Nugent,
Thank you for finally, after all my years of pain, for curing my ankle. I can now lead a normal life and go back to my sport all thanks to you.
I discovered Nick just 2 weeks before competing at the Olympic Games in Rio. He went far out of his way to help me and his attention to detail as well as his determination to get it right was incredible. For the first time ever I am not getting blisters with my insoles which are the most comfortable I have ever owed. Thank you Nick.

Dear Mr Nugent,
I just wanted to thank you for your expert help with my shattered ankle. You dealt with the problem so calmly and confidently and were so reassuring that I felt safe in your hands. The scar is beyond belief after two weeks and the range of movement has improved dramatically. The whole procedure and aftermath was pain-free. I can`t believe it is so good, I have to keep pinching myself and remind myself not to limp! You are an amazing surgeon. Thank you and best wishes.
Dear Mr Nugent,
Many thanks for doing my big toe operation. For me it has been an easy and pain-free experience immediately after surgery. The only downside has not been able to drive but I am looking forward to getting back to my long walks again.
Dear Mr Mahadevan,
I would like to say thank you very much to yourself and the rest of your team. I feel I had to let you know that I felt I was given excellent care and respect from all of you at all times.
I went to see Nick with a complex ankle joint and walking gait that needed swift resolution, given additional compounding knee pain. The way in which he analysed, explained and developed a solution to my problem was extremely impressive. His approach focuses solely upon the patient, with significant attention to detail to ensure the best possible outcome, including iterations and interaction to ensure success. The way in which he combines his medical engineering and biomechanical knowledge makes him unique and certainly one of the country’s most respected specialists in this field. Having now received two pairs of revised, or ’special’ shoes, as my children refer to them, I can already physically feel the difference, which has had a positive impact upon my daily activity levels. This is only down to the most impressive care that Nick has provided, for which I am extremely grateful.
Mr N M
Nick has been a tremendous asset since joining the London Irish medical team as a consulting Orthotist.
He has undertaken baseline pre season assessments on all our squad which allows us to try and reduce the risk of injury. Throughout the season he works alongside the medical team to ensure the players receive first class advice and treatment in order to reduce the risk of injury and return promptly from injury. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and a leading expert in his field.

I consulted Nick Gallogly for my painful feet and walking difficulty. Nick did a full assessment of my feet and gait, explained the cause of my walking pain and suggested a treatment plan. His treatment resulted in a marked improvement in my condition, with reduced pain and improved mobility. Nick’s friendly manner and professional authority were very reassuring and I would recommend his services to anyone with foot problems.

Nick Gallogly provided an excellent and professional service when refurbishing my calliper which I wear due to polio. It had been tried by others before without success and I felt that I was not being listened to. I am very pleased with the finished product and would be happy to recommend him to others.
