I am a full time Orthopaedic Consultant based at the Bucks NHS Trust and am based at both Wycombe General Hospital and Stoke Mandeville Hospital. My secretary is based at Wycombe, but my work is largely divided between the 2 hospitals. My trauma work is at Stoke and elective operating lists are at Wycombe. However I run elective clinics across both sites.
My interests are lower limb surgery particularly Knee, Foot and Ankle reconstructive surgery.
This would include:
Foot and Ankle:
The vast majority of foot and ankle conditions need accurate assessment and more often than not can be initially treated by conservative means including footwear and orthotic advice and devices.
Hallux valgus (Bunion) surgery including proximal and distal first metatarsal osteotomies such as Chevron osteotomies, Scarf, Ludloff osteotomies, Proximal opening wedge osteotomies, Lapidus procedure and 1st MTP arthrodesis.
Lesser toe surgeries which include hammer and claw toe corrective operations, bunionette corrections, Morton's neuroma and others.
Midfoot and Hindfoot:
Corrective osteotomies and fusions which includes triple arthrodesis and limited fusions.
Treatment for adult acquired flatfeet, the commonest cause being Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction and the treatment modalities include conservative, tendon transfer surgery with medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy and also triple arthrodesis.
Rhematoid Foot and Ankle management.
Arthroscopic ankle surgery.
Treatment for ankle impingement, Osteochondral lesions, Sports related Injuries.
Treatment for Ankle arthritis including fusions.
I have recently spent 5 months traveling across major Foot and Ankle Centers in the USA including Dallas, Oakland and Baltimore. This has given me a vast exposure in the latest trends in the management of Foot and Ankle conditions and dealing with sports related injuries of the area. I have spent time with several eminent Foot and Ankle surgeons, some of whom are Dr Early, Dr Royer, Dr Brodsky who is the current President of the American Foot and Ankle Society, Dr Myerson and Dr Mann who are both regarded as the doyens of Foot and Ankle Surgery around the world.
Soft tissue ligament reconstructive surgery which includes arthroscopic ACL, PCL, Medial and Lateral Collateral Ligament and Posterolateral Ligament reconstructions.
