From breaks and sprains to bumps and pains, the foot and ankle area of your body is prone to many problems and injuries. This is hardly surprising when you consider that there are 28 bones working together under considerable pressure and weight. This can result in a range of painful problems such as tendon issues, bone malformations and arthritis, through to serious sprains and fractures.

We offer comprehensive, fast and specialist orthopaedic treatment for foot and ankle problems – from the simplest bunion correction to tendon and ligament reconstruction. Our highly trained orthopaedic specialists, physiotherapists and podiatrists are renowned in their area of expertise. They can offer reassurance, peace of mind and support throughout diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.

The services available include rapid, point-of-care diagnostic imaging or screening of your foot and ankle to support an early diagnosis. This may include using the very latest MRI scanning facilities, ultrasound or conventional X-rays.

Once a diagnosis has been made, our orthopaedic specialists can suggest any follow-up treatment you may need; which could include non or minimally-invasive procedures.

Our team also works closely with our physiotherapists to help you get back to full fitness as quickly as possible.
