About me

Mr. Matthew Cichero is a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon, working in the Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics, Great Western Hospital, Swindon, UK.
He graduated as a podiatrist in 1996 in Australia, and was awarded the Peer Professional Clinical prize. In 2007, he completed his Masters degree in podiatry specialising in podiatric surgery, and completed his Australian podiatric surgical fellowship in 2011.
Mr. Cichero became the first Australian podiatric surgeon to be awarded dual Fellowship when he was qualified with the Faculty of Podiatric Surgery with the Royal College of Podiatry in 2013.
Previously he has worked establishing clinical services in Singapore and remote indigenous populations in the Northern Territory of Australia. He has also held lecturing positions at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.
Mr. Cichero has performed over 3000 foot and ankle procedures. The majority of this surgery is performed on a day-care basis under either local or general anaesthetic.
His many years working in biomechanics, orthotics and injection therapy gives him a unique insight into the conservative management of many lower limb injuries which can be treated successfully without surgery. He uses evidence-based management treatment for common foot and ankle pathologies such as heel and arch pain.
Mr. Cichero is actively involved in sports such as tennis, triathlons, and surfing giving him an insight into many sports injury management pathways and the needs of an athlete.
Mr Cichero has presented both at national and international conferences and authored a number of peer reviewed international articles.
He is currently a Board member for the Royal College of Podiatry as well as being a tutor in Podiatric Surgery, Faculty of Podiatric Surgery. (United Kingdom)
