- Gait analysis
I qualified in 1994 graduating from the University of Southampton.
My main area of interest is in the biomechanics of the foot, and the effect on the lower limb. I continue to see a wide range of amateur and professional sportsmen, as well as those who are a little less active!
I work as a foot and ankle clinical specialist in the NHS for an orthopaedic triage service, and see a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions. I also treat a significant number of children with foot and lower limb conditions.
I undertake nail surgery procedures under local anaesthetic.
Areas of interest
• Biomechanics of the foot and lower limb • Optigait gait analysis • Lower limb sports injuries • Childrens foot + lower limb problems. Musculo skeletal conditions of the foot and ankle
Current NHS consultant posts held

I have 4 golden retrievers, and 3 cockapoos. I spend many hours walking in the New Forest, and love the outdoor life. I am also a breeder of golden retrievers and cockapoos and show my golden retrievers with some success in the ring.
