"Spire provides a safe and high-quality environment for both patients and doctors in the private healthcare sector."

Specialises in

I have worked for 14 years as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and specialise solely in treating conditions affecting the foot and ankle. This has given me a significant breadth of experience in operative as well as non-operative management of all adult and adolescent conditions in the area. I have worked with professional sport throughout my career as well as with the less athletic and those suffering debilitating conditions and deformities of the foot and ankle.

My surgical practice includes all deformity correction, arthritic and degenerative conditions as well as the management of sports injuries and fractures. Examples of the type of operations I commonly carry out are Hallux Valgus (bunion) corrections, correction of any forefoot deformity, minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery to the big toe, ankle arthroscopy and ankle ligament reconstruction, flat foot and cavus foot (high arch) deformity correction, arthroscopic ankle fusion, all varieties of Achilles and other tendon operations as well as all revision cases.

In addition to my clinical practice, I lecture widely on Orthopaedic topics both nationally and internationally and hold the position of Honorary Senior Lecturer for the University of Birmingham. I am regularly involved in the teaching of both Orthopaedic trainees and GPs as well as other healthcare professionals in foot and ankle.

I am the Editor in Chief for OrthOracle, an online atlas of Orthopaedic surgery, that has been developed in the UK and is used across the World by surgeons and those in training. Its aim is to disseminate the best surgical practice among the surgical profession thereby improving outcomes and reducing adverse surgical events.
