Foot & Ankle
The Oxford Orthopaedic Group incorporates the Oxford Foot and Ankle Service.
Our surgeon, Mr Bob Sharp is the only full-time Consultant in Foot and Ankle Surgery at the NOC, Oxford where he
runs a local, National and International tertiary referral service. He deals only with problems of the Foot and Ankle,
publishes lectures and teaches widely on the subject and sits on several National Sports Injury Bodies.
We are at the vanguard of reconstructive, sports and arthroscopic surgery of Foot and Ankle. We have wide experience
of all conditions of the foot and ankle, including world-class expertise in forefoot reconstruction, sports injuries,
fusions, ankle replacement and revision ankle replacement surgery, rheumatological and neurological disease.
We have on-site CT, MRI, X-ray and Ultrasound and almost uniquely we have access to a world-class gait lab that
allows imaging and solution planning for the more complex neurological and reconstructive problems. Our colleagues
in rheumatology, neurology, vascular surgery, plastics, bone infection and radiology allow us to offer
a multi-disciplinary solution for the more complex patients.
We offer the Foot & Ankle input for Oxsport and we look after local, national & international sportsmen and women
