About me

Anna Fox is an Orthopaedic surgeon who specialises exclusively in foot and ankle surgery. After graduating from the University of Manchester, she completed her general Orthopaedic training in the North West of England, followed by super-specialist training in foot and ankle surgery at the highly regarded Sheffield Foot and Ankle Unit, as well as a travelling AO trauma fellowship to Brisbane, Australia. Whilst in Sheffield she was part of the initial research team for the Cartiva joint replacement in the treatment of big toe arthritis. She is a member of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and treats a wide range of foot and ankle conditions in both her her NHS and private practices.

Anna was appointed to her NHS consultant post at Wythenshawe Hospital in South Manchester in 2012 and continues to run a busy NHS elective practice as well as treating urgent foot and ankle trauma patients on a weekly basis.

Anna has a particular interest in foot and ankle function and studied hindfoot biomechanics as part of her thesis on gait analysis for her MSc in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff University. This interest has led her to develop close working relationships with podiatry and physiotherapy colleagues culminating in the establishment of the Manchester Foot and Ankle Team in 2017, which aims to provide a range of options for patients with a range of foot and ankle problems.

Anna is dedicated to training the next generation of foot and ankle surgeons and is the current representative for Wythenshawe Hospital for the North west Orthopaedic Training Committee. Working at one on Manchester’s leading teaching hospitals, she provides regular training opportunities for medical students from Manchester University, and in 2014 completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education from Dundee University.
