Clinical interests

Having spent 16 years as the Senior Foot and Ankle Consultant in North Yorkshire, specialising in Trauma Orthopaedic and Sports disorders of the lower limb, there are few conditions which I have not yet encountered. In performing over 15,000 operations and many more directed injections, my surgical outcomes are exemplary. I have specific interests in foot and ankle conditions such as bunions, big toe ankle and hindfoot arthritis. Ligament surgery and sports conditions of the lower limb. I have worked around the world, especially in Australia but am based in Leeds and York.

I am one of the pioneering surgeons for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) for hallux valgus and rigidus as well as forefoot deformities, which is the next development on from key-hole surgery. This gives excellent clinical outcomes and a quicker recovery.

I have developed innovations in ankle and foot arthroscopic treatments, achilles repair and ligament surgery. Whist my practice covers all patients. I have extensive experience treating elite athletes, British triathlon and ballet and contemporary dancers, premiership and local rugby union and league, premiership football and county cricket professionals.
