About me

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a particular interest in traumatic and degenerative conditions of the ankle and foot. This includes arthroscopic and open surgery, correction of bunions and lesser toe deformities, together with Ilizarov techniques to correct deformity. I deal with both complex and more straight forward conditions and can provide second opinions.

I come from Liverpool and studied at the University of Liverpool, qualifying in 1981. I undertook seven years of my surgical training in London and completed this in Liverpool prior to taking up my NHS post as a consultant at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in 1994.

I am Director of the Liverpool Foot Centre and have over twenty years experience as a consultant foot and ankle surgeon. I treat a range of conditions from broken ankles of sports players to removing bunions and re-aligning toes.

I have achieved wide recognition in the world of foot and ankle surgery and regularly lecture at national and international meetings. I was President of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society from 2007-8 representing the Society on national and international issues. Prior to this I was Chairman of its Scientific Committee. I was Director of the Society from 2009 to 2011. More recently, I have taken on training of orthopaedic surgeons both nationally and internationally.

I have provided opinion for radio and newspaper articles and provided commentary on the effects of high heels on the foot in Channel Four’s "Embarrassing Bodies".
