    Frequently asked questions

  • Why do you do what you do?

    The simple answer is I am a practical person who enjoys solving problems. Being able to translate this into a solution that eases pain, improves function or corrects deformity for someone is hugely rewarding. Foot and ankle surgery is one of the most intellectually-stimulating and challenging orthopaedic sub-specialities. The diversity of pathology is unrivalled in this field and I’m able to see patients of varying age and physical activity; those with chronic degenerative conditions and progressive deformities and acute trauma.

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Most commonly, patients present with pain, instability or deformity. This can be a result of an injury which is obvious, or more typically a series of barely-noticeable injuries accumulated over a long period of time. This is often the reason behind the development of a chronic degenerative or deforming condition.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    In most cases, patients actually do not require an operation, but they need someone to diagnose their problem and coordinate their care. As a possessor of operative skill, we are best -placed to be able to determine what conditions will resolve with help, such as physiotherapy, orthotics or other adjunctive therapies and which conditions will deteriorate if they are left neglected. If surgery is required, where possible this is carried-out when all other options have been exhausted. I utilise “key-hole” and minimally-invasive techniques when feasible to reduce pain and healing times and allow early resumption of normal activity.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My particular interest is in surgery around the ankle and hindfoot and this includes arthroscopy (key-hole) to treat painful bone spurs, cartilage defects as well as fusion surgery for chronic ankle and hindfoot pain. Ligament and tendon surgery around the ankle as well as delayed or reconstructive revision surgery is also a particular interest.
