Background Information 
Professional profile:

Gavin Bowyer is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in foot and ankle surgery. Throughout his career as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, from 1997 onwards, Mr Bowyer has run a foot and ankle practice that closely involves colleagues in physiotherapy and podiatry. He provides a service for patients with foot and ankle problems related to sports and training, arthritis or conditions such as foot and toe deformities. His aim is to provide a complete service, optimising the outcome for patients, aiming to return them to the activities they wish to pursue, in comfort.

Gavin Bowyer went to Cambridge University in 1979, to read Medical Sciences. He went on to Oxford University in 1982, to complete his clinical training. He joined the Army and underwent further surgical training in London and Southampton, and spent a busy year in the USA as a Fellow in the Shock Trauma Centre in Baltimore. He enjoyed a number of exciting postings on military tours of duty. He developed a major interest in the management of foot and ankle problems, especially after injury and in the active sports-person. Later NHS experience and training developed this further, with care of the whole range of foot and ankle conditions. Mr Bowyer has had a long association with Southampton University Hospitals, and after leaving the Armed Forces he took up a consultant post there in 1999.

Mr Bowyer is a Fellow of the British Orthopaedic Association, and a member of several societies including the British Trauma Society, British Limb Reconstruction Society, and British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. He has presented his work on foot and ankle surgery in UK, as well as at the European Foot and Ankle Society and many other European meetings, and as an invited speaker in Australia, China, Russia and the United States. He teaches regularly on foot and ankle courses, in the UK and internationally.
