Welcome to the Foot and Ankle Clinic website.

Year upon year this website has been used by increasing numbers of people the world over to help inform their decision on foot and ankle surgerical and non surgical treatments, both with us as well as local specialists. The practically oriented question and answer approach, combined with detailed clinical and operative images, seems to have struck a chord if this is reflected by the site rankings. All the images on the Foot and Ankle Clinic site are of our patients, to whom I am indebted for giving their permission to be included.

As always we regret we cannot give specific medical advice over the internet.
