Having qualified as an undergraduate from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' Medical School, I worked as a Research Fellow at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore before completing higher surgical training in the South East Thames rotation. During my training, I was the Academy Doctor at Charlton Athletic football club, which provided me with the experience of managing elite sports people. To further my foot and ankle training and to learn the latest advances in techniques, I completed British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery (BOFAS) approved fellowships at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital and Malawi. I've also taken the opportunity to take part in a visiting fellowship under the auspices of Professor Hintermann in Basel.
I believe in an evidence-based approach to patient care and have maintained a keen interest in research. I've presented at prestigious international and national meetings and have over 30 peer-reviewed publications in addition to having the privilege of being asked to author several book chapters.
Teaching and training the new generation of healthcare professionals is an important aspect of my life - I enjoy teaching undergraduates, supervising trainees and being on the faculty of numerous courses.
My clinical interests are adult foot and ankle conditions including ankle osteoarthritis, hind, midfoot and forefoot osteoarthritis, arthroscopy of ankle for therapeutic management of osteoarthritis and cartilage defects, soft tissue and ligament reconstruction, management of flat foot, pes cavus and hallux valgus , hammer toes, claw toes and metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis, tendoachilles conditions, mortons neuroma and ganglions.
