Career to date
Graduating from St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in 1986, I became 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 also practise Minimally Invasive Foot and Ankle Surgery (MIS) a new and revolutionary procedure that is used to treat a number of common foot conditions.
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 have been variously 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 am a founding Partner of The London Orthopaedic Clinic (TLOC), now based at King Edward VII’s Hospital, London W1 and also hold clinics at Wellington Diagnostics and Outpatients Centre, London NW11. I operate at King Edward VII’s Hospital, Princess Grace Hospital and Portland Hospital as necessary.
Hi Millie (and Mr Williams),
My feet are finally dry and legs no longer ache so I thought I’d send you a little photo from the Venice marathon!!! The weather was brutal and running the final two miles through flooded streets was interesting to say the least. Managed to finish in 3hrs 55mins (a gentle plod, as instructed… HA!) so I was very happy. I also somehow ended up pacing the race for the two men in the photo who announced at mile 24 that they had been following me the whole way.
A big, big thank you for all your support and care- I meant so much to me to be able to run and I couldn’t have done it without you all.
I have a little something that I want to send over to Wimpole Street to say thank you- please could you let me know when you are all in clinic and I’ll arrange for it to be delivered? Afraid I may not be able to hand deliver it myself… what time do you close this week?
