About

  • Biography icon plus

    I have a decade of experience at Consultant level in managing all adult and adolescent Foot and ankle disorders. Having qualified from Birmingham University Medical school in 1991 and trained in Orthopaedic surgery between Birmingham and Bristol, I was later awarded fellowships in Foot and Ankle surgery in Oxford and Dublin and Bristol. My appointment to a Consultant post was at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in 2003 and I spent the next 5 years developing the Foot and Ankle unit into a nationally recognized tertiary referral service. Following this I set up clinics in Birmingham and London where I see patients from around the world.

    I have worked widely in elite sport, including dance, and have been the Foot and Ankle surgeon to the British gymnastics team and currently Warwickshire County Cricket club. In this field I have particular expertise in Achilles tendon disorders and all aspects of ankle instability and impingement syndromes.
    Minimally invasive surgical techniques around the foot and ankle, especially for the ankle and great toe, are an interest of mine. In general these significantly limit post-operative discomfort, allow rapid weight bearing and minimize recovery times and accelerate return to function. They are often of great use in arthritic and post-traumatic problems.

    I use a wide variety of techniques for Bunion correction, the emphasis being on minimizing pain and allowing early return to work. I also regularly undertake all other deformity correction (such as flat feet and high–arched feet) as well as all revision cases.
