I have a special interest in correction of flat foot and pathological high arch.

I trained in three major Orthopaedic Units in Cairo, Edinburgh and Liverpool. I finished an MD thesis on “Correction of Complex Foot & Ankle Deformities”. I also finished an advanced deformity correction fellowship in Liverpool and a Trauma fellowship in Nottingham. I finished the Amsterdam Ankle Arthroscopy course.
