"Spire Cambridge Lea has fantastic facilities investing in the latest technology to treat patients. The team are very friendly and supportive, going above and beyond to help patients in their recovery."
I am an expert Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon, specialising in treating foot and ankle conditions including trauma, and sports injuries. I treat all conditions of the foot and ankle, including surgical and non surgical management of foot and ankle injuries, Achilles tendon disorders, hallux valgus (bunions), arthritis of the toe / foot / ankle, flat foot deformity, ankle instability, peroneal tendon dysfunction, plantar fasciitis, and Morton's neuroma.
Vastly experienced, I am an excellent teacher and published author in my field. I am also a consultant at Cambridge University Hospital, where I treat the most severely injured patients, and challenging foot and ankle conditions. I teach junior surgeons on a daily basis and am co-founder of the international, digital education platform orthohub.xyz.
I trained on the East of England orthopaedic rotation. During this time, I was awarded the Trainee of the Year, Trinity Cup (best in class), and the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society gold fellowship awards. I completed fellowships in foot and ankle at the University Hospitals Dorset, and major trauma and limb reconstruction at the Royal London Hospital.
I have written book chapters on foot and ankle surgery for a Bailey and Love series, and authored several peer review publications.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Michael Barrett at Spire include:
