Mr Hari K Sugathan

Personal profile

I am a fellowship trained Trauma and Orthopaedic Consultant with special interest in foot and ankle surgery. I have a dedicated foot & ankle practice. I have a scientific approach to foot and ankle.

I practice evidence based surgical and non-surgical treatment options for the entire spectrum of foot and ankle diseases.

Training

I completed my Trauma and Orthopaedic training in North East of England and obtained FRCS Trauma and Orthopaedics in 2011.

During my training I had the opportunity to work with eminent foot and ankle surgeons in Glasgow, London and North East of England. I completed 1 year  foot and ankle fellowship in Stockport and started my consultant job at Stepping Hill Hospital in Sept 2015.

I have published my research widely in peer reviewed journals and presented my work in both national and international level conferences.

Outside of medicine I enjoy tennis, badminton, swimming, movies and spending time with my wife and two daughters.
