Personal profile

Miss Muthusamy is a consultant in trauma and orthopaedics surgeon with a dual sub-specialty in adult foot and ankle and paediatric orthopaedics. 

Muthusamy qualified from the University of Aberdeen in 2000 and completed her basic surgical training in the North East of Scotland. She obtained a prestigious 2 year fellowship at one of the leading paediatric orthopaedic hospitals in the United States (Children’s Hospital Denver, Colorado) studying gait analysis and its clinical correlation, and successfully published on this topic in international peer-reviewed journals. She returned to the UK to complete her Higher Surgical training and was appointed a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2013 (FRCS Tr & Ortho).

Miss Muthusamy undertook her fellowship training at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Stanmore, studying adult foot and ankle surgery under Mr Dishan Singh and paediatric orthopaedic surgery under Miss Deborah Eastwood. 

During this period, she was awarded the British Foot and Ankle Travel Fellowship to Heidelberg Germany and the IPOS travel scholarship to attend the International Paediatric Orthopaedic Symposium in Florida USA. With this experience, she commenced her current post as a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at Northampton General Hospital.

She prefers a multidisciplinary approach to treating her patients, which includes input from physiotherapists, specialist care practitioners, occupational therapists and podiatrists.
