MB BS FRCS (Tr&Orth)

Mr R. Lloyd Williams is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Specialising in Foot and Ankle Disorders. He also treats general trauma.

Career to date

“Graduating from St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in 1986, I undertook junior surgical posts at Barts and West Middlesex University Hospital before becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1990.

Having completed a six year higher surgical training programme at the Royal National Orthopaedic, Middlesex and University College Hospitals in London, I gained the FRCS(Orth) accreditation exam in 1996. Subsequently, I undertook Visiting Fellowships in Dublin, Ireland and Houston, Texas studying Foot and Ankle Surgery.

In 1997, I became Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the University College London Hospitals NHS Trust specialising in Foot and Ankle Disorders and was until 2001 Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to Saracens RFC. I am a Fellow of the British, Irish, European and American Foot and Ankle Societies and have published research papers in my field of expertise in the European and American Medical Literature. I was Convenor of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Foot and Ankle Surgery Course from 1999 to 2007 together with faculty membership of various national and international foot and ankle surgery teaching courses and seminars.

In full time private practice since 2004, my special interests include forefoot reconstruction for hallux valgus (bunions) and correction of hindfoot deformity and arthritis. I have also trained in Minimally Invasive Foot and Ankle Surgery (MIS) a new and revolutionary procedure that is used to treat a number of common foot conditions.

Previously a keen rugby player, I have extensive experience in the management of foot and ankle disorders in professional and amateur athletes and sportsmen including football, rugby union and league players. I currently am the Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to the Royal Ballet Company, English National Ballet and Central School of Ballet and regularly attend to young ballerinas and dancers with injuries sustained during training and performance.

I have regular operating lists at The Princess Grace Hospital, London, W1, and hold Outpatient clinics at my Private Consulting Rooms at 79 Wimpole St, W1.

Mr Williams and his team were very impressive and I left feeling highly satisfied with the care I received. They put me at ease, were informative and friendly.
