Mr Chris Mann has worked as a consultant for nine years, and has dealt with many of the complex foot and ankle trauma cases from all over West Yorkshire since his appointment at Bradford Teaching Hospitals in 2004. He explains things thoroughly in a way that the patient feels comfortable with and takes as long as is required for any individual consultation. Mr Mann always offers a copy of his clinic letter to the patient. He believes that he’s a very careful, experienced, conscientious and dedicated surgeon, fully trained in his sub-speciality to offer the very best of clinical care.
Mr Chris Mann qualified in medicine from St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, University of London in 1991, and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1995. Following his junior surgical training in London, Kent and Surrey, he was appointed in 1997 to the six year Yorkshire Orthopaedic training rotation, based in Leeds, enabling him to qualify for his consultant post at Bradford Teaching Hospitals.
During his training he completed an AO Trauma Fellowship in Hanover, Germany and his higher sub-speciality training with the Foot and Ankle Fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. In his NHS post at Bradford he is the Haemophilia Link, Orthopaedic Child Protection Lead and Lead for Orthopaedic Undergraduate Education, and is also an Honorary Senior lecturer at Leeds University School of Medicine.
Although Mr Mann deals regularly with trauma to the arms and legs, his elective practice, both in the NHS and private, is purely foot and ankle. He treats any problems below the knee, from ingrowing toenails and lesser toe deformities to bunion correction, treatment of arthritis of the foot and ankle and has an interest in sports problems including ankle instability. He has particular expertise in ankle arthroscopy (keyhole surgery). A number of his patients are serious runners and he has a good working relationship with podiatrists and orthotists to treat some of these problems non –surgically whenever possible.
