Conditions Treated

Mr Patel offers advice and treatment on a broad spectrum of foot and ankle conditions. The commonest conditions discussed below but for please get in touch if you want to know other problems treated.

Home: Services


A painful bump on the inside of the big toe joint is known as a bunion. It is very common and often runs in families. Treatment is needed if it interferes with wearing shoes or causes big toe pain. Schedule an appointment to discuss the treatment options.

Ankle Sprain

Most twisting injuries of the ankle will lead to a stretch in the lateral ligaments of the ankle. The most frequently injured in the ATFL which is found on the front outer corner of your ankle. Schedule an appointment to see if you may benefit from physiotherapy, immobilisation or surgery.

Achilles Tendon Pain

Swelling at the back of your ankle is usually from an inflammation of your Achilles tendon. Specific exercises and shockwave treatment helps the vast majority of patients. Schedule an appointment to confirm the cause of pain and see if you will benefit from conservative or surgical treatment.

Morton's Neuroma

Pain and numbness in the toes can be caused by a swelling around the nerves supplying the toes. Forefoot overload may generate it in the first place, but once the swelling has set it, treatment by means of insoles, cortisone injections or surgical removal of the nerve may be the only way to resolve it.

Big Toe Arthritis

Global pain and swelling of the big toe may be arthritis. It most commonly happens in an older population but is increasingly affecting younger patients who lead more active lifestyles. Schedule an appointment to see if conservative or surgical options such as resurfacing, decompressive osteotomy or fusion are best suited for you.

Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is the commonest cause of heel pain. Symptoms are worse early in the morning and after prolonged activity. It is mostly precipitated by a 'tight posterior chain' but other causes of heel pain such as stress fractures and tumours should be ruled out to ensure you get the right treatment.

Flat Feet

One in four people have flat feet so it is not necessarily a pathological condition. However it does make walking less efficient which can lead to pain and swelling. Finding the cause will establish whether simple or bespoke insoles are sufficient, or whether in fact flat foot reconstructive surgery is required.

Ankle Arthritis

Most patients know arthritis can affect hips and knees as we get older but few know it also can affect the ankle. Recurrent sprains or fractures can precipitate wear and tear up to many years later due to changes in standing, walking and running. Book a consultation to see if surgery is the long-term answer.
