His Higher Surgical Training in Orthopaedics was at Sheffield and Southampton, before being appointed Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in 1991.

Mr Parsons developed adult and paediatric foot and ankle surgery, as a distinct specialty in Cornwall By introducing and developing “state of the art” techniques, such as ankle replacement and arthroscopic ankle and foot surgery, he was able to establish national recognition for Cornwall in foot and ankle surgery.

Mr Parsons is also a member of the European Foot & Ankle Society and has served on the Council of that Society for a full term of 4 years.
