Orthopaedic Specialists’ foot and ankle team is led by specialist Mr Nima Heidari, a leading orthopaedic and trauma surgeon with a dedicated focus on foot and ankle conditions including trauma, sports injuries and lower limb reconstruction.
Mr Heidari is very aware of the profound effect foot and ankle pain or injury can have on a person’s quality of life and he aims to provide his patients with the optimal treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical, to achieve the best possible outcome.
As a consultant at The Royal London Hospital, the largest trauma centre in the UK and one of the busiest in Europe, Mr Heidari treats the most severely injured patients.
Patients are often referred to him at Orthopaedic Specialists by other consultant orthopaedic surgeons, particularly for difficult fractures and fixation and post-operative infection.
Mr Heidari is joined by Mr Thomas Hester, a highly regarded consultant orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in foot and ankle conditions and works as Trauma Lead at University Hospital Lewisham.
Mr Hester is a conscientious, proactive and caring consultant with a keen interest in research and innovation in his field of expertise. He specialises in a variety of foot and ankle conditions, including minimally invasive surgery (arthroscopy), ligament injuries, ankle fractures, cartilage damage, bunions and heel pain.
Specialist Paediatric Consultant Mr Thomas Crompton is available to see children for any orthopaedic condition, including foot and ankle.
