This service is in addition to the established foot and ankle surgery team at BHRUT at Queen’s Hospital and King George Hospital by Krishna Vemulapalli and Ashok Acharya,

Mr Prasanna said: “There are many reasons for these injuries to occur, whether from wear and tear or issues around posture or accidents – including sporting injuries.

“I love to play cricket and I know full well how sudden slips, trips and falls can lead to problems.

“Post-lockdown, we are now starting to see patients, and I am looking forward to working with the team to develop this innovative specialism for local people.”
