Mr John Bramall

Consultant Podiatrist

BSc (Hons) F.Pod.A FCPodS

Specialises in

I have worked in my current NHS post since 1997 and was appointed to Consultant Podiatric Surgeon in 2001. I specialise in forefoot, midfoot and superficial rearfoot surgery. My particular interests are big toe joint implant arthroplasty and minimally invasive surgery of chronic metatarsalgia, bunions and the flexible flatfoot.

Annually, I perform over 590 foot procedures and am happy to provide care under local anaesthesia utilising ultrasound guided techniques or general anaesthesia. Audit is important within my practice; PASCOM-10 and Manchester Oxford Foot Questionnaire completed by my patient’s pre and post-surgery show a statistically significant improvement across the three domains of Walking/standing, Pain and Social interaction.

Originally qualifying as a clinical podiatrist in 1988, I undertook further training and examination in podiatric surgery and gained the Award of Fellowship of The College of Podiatrists (surgery) – FCPodS in 1994. Later that year I completed a foot and ankle residency under the guidance of renowned Podiatrist, Dr Gary Dockery, DPM, Seattle, USA, and in 2007, completed training in extra-osseous talotarsal stabilization (EOTTS) surgery with HyProCure at the Graham International Implant Institute. I am an independent prescriber and a registered surgical tutor and peer reviewer for the Faculty of Surgery, College of Podiatrists.
