Mr Al-Nammari is a Consultant Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon based at Ipswich Hospital. His private practice receives patients from across Suffolk, North Essex and further afield.
Mr. Al-Nammari went to Medical school in Edinburgh and this was followed by a scholarship to the University of Oxford where he was awarded a distinction for his final dissertation. His general surgical training, of four years, was in Edinburgh and London. This was followed by Orthopaedic training for six further years on the prestigious Royal London Rotation where he began to specialise in Foot and Ankle surgery. He subsequently received awards from the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle society, European Foot & Ankle Society and the Royal College of Surgeons that allowed him to gain two further of years of advanced fellowship training purely in Foot & Ankle at centres of excellence across the UK, Europe and the USA.
Mr. Al-Nammari maintains an active research interest and has published book chapters, over forty peer reviewed scientific papers and has presented over fifty pieces of scientific work at national and international meetings. He is committed to surgical innovation and has previously published a variety of new surgical techniques- including for severe bunions, joint preservation in ankle arthritis and complex ankle fractures.
He is a scientific reviewer for several Orthopaedic and Foot & Ankle surgery specific journals and continues to be involved in the training of both undergraduate and postgraduate trainees from the University of Cambridge and across the east of England.
His elective surgical practice deals exclusively with foot and ankle problems. This high degree of subspecialisation allows him to offer his patients the most up to date advice and treatment.
