    About

    As Foot and Ankle Lead Surgeon at Guys and St Thomas' since 2005,  he nurtures a caring skillful approach to managing patients, something he has taught 15 other Consultants he trained through the specialist foot and ankle fellowship program he founded.

    He graduated from Cambridge University, trained in Orthopaedic surgery in London and completed his training in Boston, USA. He is the only British Surgeon to have ever been awarded a specialist fellowship in Foot and Ankle Surgery from Harvard University.

    He offers the latest proven techniques for managing all Foot and Ankle disorders including: Ankle sports Injuries, ligament injuries, bunions and hammertoes, Morton’s Neuroma and tendon disorders, Arthritis of the foot and ankle, Achilles tendon issues, Plantar Fasciitis, and minimally invasive foot surgery.

    His commitment to giving patients clear and honest advice on recovering from injury or surgery led to his invitation to be be the senior editor on Bunions and Morton’s neuroma for the UK's leading patient resource, "NHS Choices." He also regularly publishes in academic and popular media.

    He is passionate about his work, delivering his patients their care in a reassuring manner with a sprinkling of good humour. He is among the highest rated doctors in the UK. 

    He is a preferred provider of all insurance companies as his charges fall within their guidelines. 

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Thank you for the feedback. Plantar Fasciitis is one of those conditions that often settles itself but if it doesn't then it can be hard to treat.

    Ahh. How nice! There are so many myths around bunion surgery. I always believe in giving clear recovery guidelines, that what builds the relationship of trust between the doctor and patient.
