Foot and Ankle

The Team

The Foot and Ankle unit at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is a tertiary referral centre. We offer comprehensive surgical and non-surgical care for a wide variety of routine and complex foot and ankle problems.

Our Foot and Ankle surgeons are internationally-renowned and They have published in a variety of high-ranking academic journals and delivered lectures in international conferences. Their specialist area includes Total ankle replacements and Foot and Ankle reconstructions.

Working alongside the Foot and Ankle surgeons are a team of Advanced Podiatric Practitioners (APPs). Their role includes triaging and assessing patients, requesting diagnostic imaging, preparing patients for surgery and reviewing post-operative patients. The APPs also support medical students on placement, audits, research and trainee APP mentorships.

The foot and ankle team are well supported by a team of experienced secretaries.

You will also benefit from the input of other professionals such as sports physicians, interventional radiology, specialist nurses, podiatrist, physios, orthotists and plaster technicians.
