MBChB. BSc (Hons). MSc (Hons). FRCS (Orth).
I specialise purely in disorders of the foot and ankle. My fellowship training was in the UK and the USA. My specialist practice involves complex cases that have been referred from centres across the United Kingdom. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team including; radiologists, physiotherapists, orthotists and anaesthetists, to provide optimum care to foot and ankle patients.
My areas of interest include achilles disorders, ankle arthritis, ankle arthroscopy, bunions, flat feet, high arched feet, claw and hammer toes, neurological foot conditions, plantar fasciitis, sports injuries of the foot and ankle and fractures of the foot and ankle.
I have been awarded numerous awards and prizes. I was awarded a distinction in my BSc and MSc degrees. I have been awarded the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society travelling fellowship award for three consecutive years. I have also been awarded several prizes for my research.
