He then decided to enrich his career by working first in Australia and then Saudi Arabia before he returned to the United Kingdom to focus on specialist training. Mr Foote competed his Basic Surgical Training in Bristol and then completed Specialist Orthopaedic Training on the London and South West Thames Rotation. This is a renowned rotation and he had the opportunity to train in a number of excellent District General Hospitals as well as the prestigious St George’s Hospital in Tooting, London.
Mr Foote then completed a year’s advanced Hip Fellowship at Southmead Hospital in Bristol, run by Professor Blom and his team. This is a superb Fellowship with particular emphasis on complex primary and revision hip surgery. He received exceptional, intensive training from a number of dedicated hip revision surgeons. After Bristol, Mr Foote completed a Specialist Knee Fellowship at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, working with Professor Price and his team. This is also an outstanding Fellowship and Mr Foote was trained in how to perform the famous “Oxford partial knee replacement” as well as receiving further training in complex primary knee replacements.
Mr Foote has expertise in performing Primary and Revision Hip Replacements. He is able to offer fully uncemented, hybrid and fully cemented hip replacements and uses modern, well performing implants and bearing surfaces. He can also offer partial and total knee replacements as well as key-hole knee surgery. He also has an interest in dealing with fractures and infections around hip and knee replacements.
Mr Foote regularly attends local and international meetings to ensure that his practice remains up to date. He carefully plans each joint replacement using special digital templating software to ensure the best possible result for his patients.
