I have worked as a Consultant since 2004, and have dealt with many of the complex foot and ankle trauma cases from all over the West Yorkshire since my appointment at Bradford Teaching Hospitals in 2003.
I explain things thoroughly in a way that the patient feels comfortable with, I will take as long as is required for any individual consultation.
I always offer a copy of my clinic letter to the patient. I believe that I am a very careful, experienced, conscientious and dedicated surgeon, fully trained in my sub- speciality to offer the very best of clinical care.

Common Foot and Ankle Problems (eg for GPs) upon request, other teaching (formal or informal)
Outcome measures in foot and ankle are evolving, they are not yet as established as they are for orthopaedic subspecialties such as hip and knee replacement. They are however needed, and I am working with my Yorkshire colleagues to develop these. Although I do not have current hard evidence yet, my postoperative wound infection and other rates were shown to be significantly lower than expected, as shown in a six-month review of all my elective open operations undertaken by me as a Consultant at the Bradford Royal Infirmary. Likewise, a series of around 70 high risk trauma cases (calcaneal fracture fixation) undertaken by me had a deep wound problem rate far lower than expected, presented at an international trauma conference. I genuinely believe that my patient satisfaction rates are high although again this needs quantifying.
