Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Sturdee offers a comprehensive foot and ankle service including all operative and non operative treatments. He has received training in foot and ankle surgery in Leeds, Bradford and Wirral University Teaching Hospital.
He works closely with Chris Parrish, Orthopaedic Podiatrist at Elland hospital as well as the physiotherapists at Spire Elland so that all non operative treatments can be tried before considering surgery.
He is recognised by all the major insurance companies and for self funding patients a package price for treatment can be provided on request. He is director of The West Yorkshire Foot and Ankle Clinic and a webiste is currently under construction.

Extracoporeal shock wave therapy (eSWT) is now available at Spire Elland Hospital under the care of Mr Sturdee for treatment of plantar fasciitis and is approved by NICE and the major insurance companies.
