I am a highly motivated and goal-oriented individual who started my career in an internationally established and reputable firm, being particularly interested in biomechanics using 3D Foot Pressure and video Gait Analysis laboratory, wound management, diabetic high risks patients, nail surgery, pediatric conditions and infection management.
I am a qualified and experienced Podiatrist with full HCPC registration. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Podiatry at University of Salford in Manchester, U.K. With regards to my training I attended a five week placement course at a high risk diabetic Hospital in Rusholme, Manchesterand a six weeks placement in a private clinic in Melbourne, Australia where I helped patients achieve their optimum mobility and improve their quality of life by treating painful conditions that majorly affected the feet and lower limb.
To further my insight into the medical field, I obtained a two years diploma in Theory of Podiatric Surgery. This invaluable opportunity gave me the privilege to improve my understanding of anatomy, pharmacology and clinical investigations as well as to expand my knowledge in foot and ankle surgery.
My first practice was in Greater Manchester NHS Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service Hospital for two years worked as musculoskeletal professional on a full range of foot and ankle conditions including bunions, sprains and strains, neuromas, tendinopathies, heel pain and toe-related issues as well aslower limb biomechanics abnormalities which often precede in progressive pain affecting mostly the lower limb. My particularly interest areas are diabetic foot, trauma and biomechanics which includes offloading strategies, custom orthoses/insoles, shoe recommendations that ensure long term successes and preventions.
I continued my work experience working in the private section in well-known clinics in the United Kingdom as a responsible and always professional individual delivering a high standard of podiatry care in a variety of settings.
