Foot and Ankle Surgery

We run our patient clinics for the assessment of patients with all foot and ankle problems ranging from the straightforward to the complex; both acute and chronic. The clinics include a tertiary referral clinic for complex foot and ankle problems to enable a combined opinion for patients from:

  • Queen Alexandra Hospital
  • Richard's (Chichester)
  • Royal Hampshire (Winchester)
  • Basingstoke
  • Royal Bournemouth Hospitals.

Following assessment in these clinics patients are then either referred on for orthotic insoles or physiotherapy when appropriate, or listed for surgery which we undertake ourselves.

We also manage the complex foot and ankle trauma cases and run a dedicated foot and ankle trauma operating list for these.

Mr. Lasrado undertook a foot and ankle and frame fellowship in Melbourne, Australia; he is therefore well versed in foot and ankle pathology from the straightforward to the complex.

We have a fellow (senior trainee) joining the unit in the near future which is an exciting development- it will improve access for patients and our research potential. We are part of a multicentre study with Poole and Basingstoke Hospitals that is due to start in the near future looking at the management of ankle fractures. We have recently been selected by the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society as one of the pilot centres for the collection of outcome data.
