About me

Chris was a student and junior Doctor in Sheffield but hails from London originally. Chris cemented his career choice of Orthopaedics whilst doing a bachelors degree in Bioengineering at The University of Sheffield. His higher surgical training was on the Cambridge rotation where he carried out a Doctorate of Medicine Degree whilst based in Norwich. There followed two periods of fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery in Melbourne, Australia.

In 2002 Chris returned to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to take up a consultant post specialising in adult foot and ankle surgery and trauma. He continues in this role as the clinical lead for the busy Sheffield Foot and Ankle Unit. He is an enthusiastic teacher and has pursued this role through the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society where was the Chairman of the Education Committee.

In independent practice he was one of the founder members of Sheffield Orthopaedics Limited which has been established for over 10 years and is one of the UKs largest Orthopaedic groups. He was on the Board of Directors for 5 years and was the Chairman of this company for 3 years, leaving this role in 2012 to pursue other avenues though remaining closely involved.

The main surgical areas of interest for Chris remain trauma to the foot and ankle and he continues to pursue clinical research in areas such as ankle replacement and fusion as well as forefoot surgical innovations. He was part of the research team which won the prestigious Mann Award at the 2015 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Congress and in 2017

Chris teaches internationally at Congresses and courses and is receives very good feedback in this role in which he prides himself.

In November 2016 Chris became the President of The British Foot and Ankle Society, leading his subspecialist colleagues for the next year which culminated in a Congress of Foot and Ankle Surgeons in Sheffield in November 2017, the Congress was a great success with excellent feedback.
