Mr Syed completed his training from Yorkshire working at the famous Leeds Teaching Hospitals “Jimmy’s”. While training he became interested in foot and ankle surgery completing a one year fellowship at Arrow Park Hospital in Wirral. Prior to this he worked in many busy foot and ankle units in UK. Having worked in most of the premier institutes in Dublin he has a keen insight of working with people from rural background.
He is keen to raise awareness among general public that times have changed and foot and ankle surgery is not about mutilating painful procedures but part of a surgical revolution which ensures a pleasant and relatively pain free surgical experience which can transforms ones life at any age.
A bulk of his work focuses on bunion and corrective toe surgery. He emphasises the point that this is a big problem in the local population affecting work, walking and footwear. Modern techniques of bony and soft tissue correction have ensured that bunion and toe surgery is a safe, predictable highly successful operation that has changed the lives of many patients. Some of these can now even be done under local anaesthesia.
With the advancements in orthopaedic surgery a number of procedures can now be performed using keyhole surgery. This may vary from cleaning of arthritis from a joint to fusing the ankle. He also performs sports injury related operations around the foot and ankle involving ligament and tendon reconstructions.
