What We Do
Every year many, many trips are made to foot specialists in London due to foot, toe and ankle problems – whether that be through age, accidents or athletics! Many of these visits are due to ankle sprains and strains and the more serious injury of ankle fractures.

We feel it’s imperative you take great care of your feet and legs and encourage you to make an appointment with one of our consultants if you have any concerns.

How Do The Foot and Ankle Work?
Each foot has 28 bones and 35 joints. The ankle bone (talus) plus the ends of the two lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) form the ankle joint, which is stabilised and supported by 3 ligament groups. Tendons and muscles operate the ankle and foot.
