Mr Syed completed his training from Yorkshire working at the famous Leeds Teaching Hospitals “Jimmy’s”. While training he became interested in foot & ankle surgery completing a one year fellowship at Arrow Park Hospital in Wirral. Prior to this he worked in many busy foot & ankle units in UK. Having worked in most of the premier institutes in Dublin he has a keen insight of working with people from rural background.
He is keen to raise awareness among general public that times have changed & foot & ankle surgery is not about mutilating painful procedures but part of a surgical revolution which ensures a pleasant & relatively pain free surgical experience which can transforms ones life at any age.
A bulk of his work focuses on bunion & corrective toe surgery. He emphasises the point that this is a big problem in the local population affecting work, walking & footwear. Modern techniques of bony & soft tissue correction have ensured that bunion & toe surgery is a safe, predictable highly successful operation that has changed the lives of many patients. Some of these can now even be done under local anaesthesia.
With the advancements in orthopaedic surgery a number of procedures can now be performed using keyhole surgery. This may vary from cleaning of arthritis from a joint to fusing the ankle. He also performs sports injury related operations around the foot & ankle involving ligament & tendon reconstructions.
