Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Team
Welcome to the web pages for the Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Team at Dorset County Hospital.
These pages are designed to allow patients, GPs and other medical professionals to seek information about foot and ankle conditions and operations. We have written patient information leaflets, care pathways and protocols as well as rehabilitation guides. There are also links to other useful websites.
We aim to enhance multi-disciplinary communication and hence improve patients' outcomes and satisfaction with their care.
There are several members of the team, including:
Mr Nick Savva FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Matt Flux BSc MCSP
Extended Scope Practitioner Physiotherapist
Juliet Bell BSc MBAPO
Head of Orthotics
