About me

Mr Mark Herron is a Consultant Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle surgeon at Spire Little Aston and The Priory hospital, Birmingham. He is the Director of the Foot and Ankle Clinic, a multidisciplinary practice, which he set up with in 2004.

Mark Herron also practices at the Wellington Hospital, St Johns Wood, London.

Marks’ practice encompasses all areas of adult and adolescent foot and ankle surgery, in which he is closely supported by podiatry, physiotherapy and orthotist colleagues at the clinic.

At the Foot and Ankle clinic Mark uses only modern techniques for bunion surgery (Hallux Valgus) such as the Scarf osteotomy. The Scarf procedure has one of the highest success rates, allows immediate weight bearing and minimises postoperative pain. With the Scarf operation for bunion surgery one can be back to work within a few days. Mark Herron treats big toe arthritis (Hallux rigidus) using big toe arthroscopy, big toe fusion and big toe replacement.

Mark Herron also runs a busy sport injuries practice regularly treating professional sportsmen and women as well as social sports enthusiasts. Ankle arthroscopy, ankle ligament reconstruction and Achilles tendon operations are commonly used in the management of these conditions.

Ankle fusions, arthroscopies and debridements are regularly performed at the Clinic by Mark Herron. Ankle. Fusions are generally carried out using arthroscopic techniques. This allows immediate weight bearing post operatively and significantly reduces pain. Mark Herron and his colleagues understand there is often a delicate balance to be struck between function, pain relief and aesthetics.

Foot and ankle surgery is performed to reduce pain, improve deformity and increase function. In many cases however non-operative treatment is also an option.
