I am fellowship trained Foot and Ankle Surgeon working in a busy University Hospital and a Major Trauma Centre for two years. I am an expert in the management of complex foot and ankle problems and complex trauma and sports injuries around foot and ankle. I get referrals for expert opinion from surrounding hospitals.

I treat all foot and ankle conditions such as bunion, hammer toes, curly toes, ingrowing toe nails, hallux valgus and hallux rigidus; tendon problems such as Achilles tendonitis, planter fasciitis. I do ankle arthroscopy, arthroscopic fusion of ankle using small incisions and do total ankle replacement for arthritis. I also treat fractures around foot and ankle. I treat sports injuries focusing on rehabilitation to achieve early return to sports and perform ligament reconstruction when necessary.

In addition to my clinical work, I am training Lead for foundation year trainee and train Orthopaedic specialist registrar and senior Foot and Ankle Fellows.

I have published several papers in peer-reviewed foot and ankle journals. I have lead few multicentre national trials based at University Hospital Southampton such as UK STAR study, a rehabilitation after Achilles tendon rupture; AIR Study, ankle injury rehabilitation comparing plaster vs functional brace treatment. I have introduced fibular nailing, a new procedure for treating ankle fractures at Southampton General Hospital.
