Foot & Ankle and Limb Reconstruction Surgery

Special Interests

My two main areas of sub-specialty are:

Foot and Ankle Surgery including:

Bunion surgery, big toe fusion and replacement, toe deformity corrections, surgery for the painful forefoot, Ankle, Hind & Midfoot reconstruction & fusions, tendon & ligament reconstruction, planter fascia surgery, ankle fusion, ankle arthroscopy, ankle replacement, ankle instability surgery and Rheumatoid foot surgery.

Limb Reconstruction including:

The use of circular & Ilizarov frames for correction of complex foot deformities, Limb Lengthening, reconstruction of large bony defects, management of bone infections, infected non-unions, malunions, biological reconstructions and complex congenital deformities.

Personal Statement

I trained in three major Orthopaedic Units in Cairo, Edinburgh and Liverpool. I finished an MD thesis on “Correction of Complex Foot & Ankle Deformities”. I finished an advanced deformity correction fellowship in Liverpool and a Trauma fellowship in Nottingham. I finished the Amsterdam Ankle Arthroscopy course.

I now master the full spectrum of foot and ankle pathologies, including all recent techniques as the Scarf / Akin osteotomies for bunion correction, ankle arthroscopy, endoscopic planter fascia release, ankle replacement, gradual correction of ankle and foot deformity, ankle joint distraction for early arthritis and more. I have a special interest in correction of flat foot and pathological high arch.

I also have a wide experience in all limb reconstruction tools including the Ilizarov frame, the Taylor Spatial frame, the Sheffield Hybrid fixator, the Orthofix LRS monolateral fixators, and Intramedullary lengthening nails. I have a special interest in correction of complex foot deformities.
