Professional profile

I offer a comprehensive foot and ankle service including all operative and nonoperative treatments. I have received training in foot and ankle surgery in Leeds, Bradford and Wirral University Teaching Hospital. I work closely with Chris Parrish, Orthopaedic Podiatrist at Elland hospital as well as the physiotherapists at Spire Elland. so that all non operative treatments can be tried before considering surgery. I qualified from Leeds University medical school in 1996 and did my basic surgical training in Yorkshire. I was appointed as a Specialist registrar in Orthopaedics in 2001 and rotated through several hospitals in West and North Yorkshire. Fellowship training was undertaken in Harrogate and Wirral University Teaching Hospitals and I completed my training in September 2007 and have been on the GMC specialist register for Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery since this date. I started my NHS Consultant post at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust in April 2008 and has a general trauma practice and my elective practice is exclusively foot and ankle surgery and its associated conditions. I teach on many regional and national courses and am involved in the training of trainee doctors in the NHS trust and in the Yorkshire region. I am actively involved in audit and research as part of clinical governance within the trust and have several publications in the medical literature.
