About me

Mr Stephen Kriss qualified as a Podiatrist in 1982 in Manchester and took posts at St Bartholomew’s and Hackney Hospitals. He took a keen interest in the diabetic and rheumatoid foot and became involved in a number of collaborative research projects with other hospital departments. Following a course in Traditional Chinese Medicine he qualified as an acupuncturist in 1985 and was appointed as acupuncturist to the Rheumatology Department at Barts Hospital treating musculoskeletal and pain syndromes, while continuing work as a podiatrist.

He completed a Masters degree at The University of Westminster and Northwick Park Hospital. He established a multi centre clinical trial looking at the investigation and management of plantar fasciitis. In 1988 he was appointed district clinical chief and received his MPhil degree in 1990 with a thesis on Heel Pain: An Investigation into its aetiology and management

From 1992 he worked as a part time clinical tutor in Podiatry at the University of Westminster, within a variety of GP practices and Hospital bases and at the Royal Free Hospital. During this period he developed an interest in foot problems associated with Scleroderma and connective tissue diseases as well as general Rheumatology. He was also appointed as acupuncturist to the Rheumatology Dept at the Royal Berkshire Hospital NHS Trust in 1994.
