I trained as an undergraduate in London and qualified in 1990. I established the Woodberry Foot Health Clinic in 1991 and live locally in Muswell Hill. I was appointed to a Consultant position within the Orthopaedic team at Barnet & Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust in 2002. The first such appointments in the country and since 2014 I have been Consultant Podiatrist to The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust but still based mainly at Barnet Hospital.
Primarily a specialist in the function of the foot during the gait cycle I treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders of the Lower Limb arising from foot function.
Although a musculoskeletal specialist, I also treat, investigate or provide advice on all problems that can affect the foot and ankle. I have a specialist interest in the developing foot of children but provide care effectively from the birth to old age. Following the changes to legislation I have passed my Independent prescribing course and am annotated on the HCPC register as an Independent and supplementary prescriber.
An elected board member of the Faculty of Podiatric medicine and General practice. I am an AHP advisor to the the Department of Health on muscular skeletal and paediatric issues and a QIPP advisor to the National Institute of Clinical Excellence. I am a Fellow of the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and I am also the London regional advisor for the Faculty.
I have lectured at National and International Podiatric and medical Conferences. I lecture at Master level University courses and am involved in the training of Orthopaedic Surgeons and Podiatrists. I strive to bring the best evidence based modern treatments available for my patients and have been published in National and International medical and Podiatric Journals.
