Background Information 
Professional profile:

I have been on the consultant staff at the Norfolk and Norwich Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust since January 2008. As an Orthopaedic Surgeon my specialist areas are adult foot and ankle surgery and paediatric orthopaedics.

As part of my training I completed specialist fellowships in foot and ankle surgery in Sheffield and paediatric orthopaedics in Melbourne, Australia.

I have completed research in areas relating to foot pressure studies and gait analysis (walking patterns) in reference to children's foot disorders, being awarded a post-graduate Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree in 2005 for this work. Other areas of research have included orthopaedic issues in neuromuscular disorders.

I am happy treating the majority of foot and ankle disorders, including sport's related injuries, osteoarthritis, foot deformities and problems secondary to inflammatory and neuromuscular disease.

I also treat the full range of paediatric orthopaedic problems other than scoliosis and congenital hand deformities.

Personal profile:

Having been born and brought up in Norwich I was happy and honoured in 2008 to return to my home town to take up a consultant post in Orthopaedics. Having left as a school leaver at 18 years, I returned however as a wife and mother to two children. Most of my free time is spent with my young family, however I am passionate to my career and wish to obtain the best for my patients as well as further my specialist areas with ongoing research and training.
