Professional profile

I became a consultant in 1990. I am now full time in private practice and no longer have an NHS contract. I co-operate with 11 other orthopaedic surgeons at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, each supplying complimentary skills to give an integrated modern orthopaedic service. My particular expertise is foot and ankle surgery. In addition to general orthopaedic training, I spent two years full time foot surgery research in a specialist unit at Northwick Park Hospital. I am a convener of the Stanmore National Instructional Course.

Analogies from everyday life, drawings and computer demonstration are a great help. I am keen to employ techniques which minimise pain after operation. The broad deformed forefoot, bunions, claw toes, the foot that rolls over, sports injuries, the ankle that gives way, ankle pain with reduced movement, treatment of arthritis and reconstruction of foot and ankle after injury or previous unsuccessful surgery are some of the conditions that fall within the scope of my practice.

I am a national advisor on post polio problems in the foot and ankle and the North of England advisor on Charcot Marie Tooth neuropathy. Where surgery is required on the ankle, an increasing number of procedures can be undertaken by keyhole surgery to both front and back of the ankle.

I lecture frequently at national and international meetings. I have an additional interest in footwear and orthotics. I aim to explain what is wrong, and outline the possibilities for treatment, without the use of complex jargon.

I store patient records in compliance with GDPR regulations.
