Mr John McKinley, Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBChB BMSc(Hons) FRCS(Orth)

Conditions Mr McKinley's can treat include:


A bunion is the term used to describe a swelling over the joint of the big toe. There are two different types – hallux valgus and hallux rigidus.


Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint, which can lead to loss of cartilage lining that normally allows smooth, pain free movement. This can occur in any joint and is sometimes as part of a widespread condition such as rheumatoid arthritis.

However, it is common that only one joint is involved and this may be as a result of a previous injury or can be for no obvious reason. As there are more than 30 joints in the foot and ankle, this is a common cause of pain.
