MB ChB, FRCS Ed (Tr&Orth)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in foot and ankle surgery. I deal with all aspects of foot and ankle problems ranging from bunion correction and neuroma surgery, to foot and ankle fusions and management of deformity. I have expertise in treating arthritis and sports injuries in the foot and ankle, as well as surgical and non-surgical solutions for Achilles and plantar fascia problems.
After completing my surgical training in Edinburgh, I undertook one year of specialist fellowship training at the Vancouver General Hospital in Canada. Following this I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in NHS Fife where I treat complex foot and ankle problems.
I am an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and the Head of Education for EduSurg Ltd. I was the co-author of a textbook titled ‘Trauma Vivas for the FRCS’, and co-authored a chapter in ‘The Oxford Textbook of the Fundamentals of Surgery’.
I am also a Tutor for the Master of Surgery in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, where I also sit on the Board of Examiners. As a surgical trainer in the NHS, I am a Clinical Supervisor for the South-East Scotland Orthopaedic Surgical Training Programme.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Scott Middleton at Spire include:
Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd)
British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (BOFAS)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, NHS Fife
Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer, University of Edinburgh
I live in the West End of Edinburgh with my wife and two Border Collies. I represented Scotland at Squash, but my main interests outside of work now are skiing and golf, as a member of the Royal Burgess Golfing Society. I enjoy travelling abroad and hillwalking all over Scotland.
