Mr Asad Syed

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

FRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth)

Specialises in

  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Bunion and corrective toe surgery
  • Sports injuries related to foot and ankle

I am a qualified and experienced Orthopaedic surgeon who runs a comprehensive foot and ankle service. I also perform sports injury related operations around the foot and ankle involving ligament and tendon reconstructions. The bulk of my work focuses on bunion and corrective toe surgery. I want to emphasis the point that this is a big problem for many affecting work, walking and footwear.

I am keen to raise awareness among the general public that times have changed and foot and ankle surgery has advanced significantly and is part of a surgical revolution which ensures a pleasant and relatively pain free surgical experience which can transform life at any age.

Modern techniques of bony and 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 anaesthetic. 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.

I qualified in 1987 and am an experienced Orthopaedic surgeon who runs a comprehensive foot and ankle service for the NHS at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. This is a tertiary referral centre for North Wales receiving and treating complicated cases from Bangor & Glan Clwyd hospitals.

I completed my training in Yorkshire working at the famous Leeds Teaching Hospital "Jimmy's". While training I became interested in foot and ankle surgery and completed a one year fellowship at Arrow Park Hospital on the Wirral. Prior to this I worked in many busy foot and ankle units in the UK and in most of the premier institutes in Dublin. I have a keen insight in working with people from urban and rural backgrounds.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Betsi Cadwaladr University Hospital Group, Wrexham Maelor Hospital

My passion in life is to help people with my surgical expertise. I am part of a team of surgical experts who have been among the first to be sent from UK to disaster zones around the world.

I was the only Orthopaedic surgeon sent by the British Government to China in 2007 to help out in the Chinese earthquake. I have operated on patients in the various earthquakes in Kashmir 2005 and Indonesia 2009. With "Merlin" I have been to help and operate on the injured in Haiti, which I would describe as the most devastating disaster to date.

I am part of an international charity fitting artificial limbs to amputees in third world countries. My trips to the disaster zones have been followed up by many local and national papers. I am a keen sportsman having played hockey at professional level.
