Consultant Podiatric Surgeon


Practises at: The Lincoln Hospital, The Park Hospital


Personal profile

Mr Pavier has been an NHS Consultant Podiatric Surgeon since 2001. His NHS practice has been based at Newark Hospital and over this period of time he has established a busy foot surgery service with multiple trainees successfully passing through the department.

He has practicing privileges at The Park Hospital and The Lincoln Hospital. He has an interest in pathology of the 1st MTP joint (big toe joint) including Hallux Valgus (bunion) and Hallux Rigidus (arthritis of big toe joint) as well as performing many revision surgeries for previously failed Hallux Valgus surgeries. Mr Pavier also has an interest in injection therapy for painful joints and Morton’s Neuroma, and also offers surgical excision or decompression surgery for this extremely painful condition.

Mr Pavier’s clinics at The Park Hospital are held on Tuesday and Friday mornings with a regular theatre session on Friday afternoons. His clinics at The Lincoln Hospital are on Monday mornings with a theatre session on Saturday mornings.

Mr Pavier obtained his Fellowship at Solihull Hospital and subsequently worked at Solihull and Buxton Hospitals as a registrar. He is an independent prescriber, following completion of the course at Huddersfield University and is also on the HCPC register as an annotated Podiatric Surgeon.

Mr Pavier places the patient at the centre of any care and always discusses the risks and benefits of any treatment he recommends and is happy to discuss any concerns patients may have prior to surgery. It is his belief that “it takes as long as it takes” and no patient will ever be rushed out of his consulting room if they have any queries or concerns that they wish to discuss. During this difficult pandemic Mr Pavier has commenced offering Telephone consultations to all patients but of course this does not replace face to face examinations which are crucial to surgical planning.

Mr Pavier has always had a desire to give back to the profession and has been an active surgical tutor for many years and has acted as examiner and been a member of the examinations board of the College of Podiatry. He was a faculty board member for 7 years and acted as Vice Dean of the Faculty of Surgery as well as held the position of Chair of the Northern Deanery for 3 years.

He enjoys teaching and has lectured both nationally and internationally on various subjects including Morton’s Neuroma and Hallux Valgus correction, most recently he has lectured in Toronto, Canada to the Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine. Mr Pavier likes to invest his time in training junior podiatric surgeons and has lectured at the National Podiatry Conference over the last 5 years on Hallux Valgus and has led workshops on Osteotomy techniques for Hallux Valgus and skin suturing workshops. Mr Pavier has been a visiting lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University where he led on the anatomy dissection module on the MSc in Theory of Podiatric Surgery and was also a visiting lecturer and examiner for Huddersfield University on the MSc in Theory of Podiatric Surgery on the anatomy and radiology modules.

Recently he has undertaken training as an expert witness and has attended training by Bond Solon in report writing and now undertakes expert witness work as part of his practice.

Mr Pavier's practice at The Park and Lincoln Hospitals consists of seeing both private, insured and self-funding patients. He is registered with all of the major health insurance providers as well as benevolent funds. He also offers NHS appointments which can be accessed by GPs using Choose and Book.

On a personal note, Mr Pavier has a keen interest in fly fishing by way of relaxation and has been lucky enough to enjoy this hobby all over the world from Christmas Island in the Pacific Ocean to the Bahamas in the Caribbean. He is also a keen triathlete having completed a half iron man distance event in 2020, and is also a keen master’s swimmer, winning a silver medal in the Welsh National master’s championships in 2019.
