Advice and treatment you can trust

At Stanmore Foot and Ankle Specialists, we believe in multi-disciplinary working and an evidence-based approach to clinical practice.

What that means for you is an honest opinion and a full range of proven treatment options. It’s not about what we can do, it’s about what you need, so we’ll often offer treatments and advice to help you avoid surgery.

It’s all part of our plan to give you the best possible care we can. It’s why we work closely with experts in the fields of radiology, physiotherapy, orthotics and podiatry. It’s also why we have regular team meetings to focus on our patients and discuss the more complex cases in detail.

It’s how we offer advice and treatment we know you can trust.

    Everything you need

    As well as state-of-the-art treatment, our comprehensive service also includes imaging and blood work.

    So, if you need blood tests, X-rays or an MRI scan, we offer all at both our Princess Grace and Elstree Waterfront sites. All you need to do is choose which works best for you. And if you need access to a cutting-edge weight-bearing CT scan, we can organize that as well.

    Plus, to keep things simple and save you time, we can change plaster casts and provide boots and braces should your treatment require them. And this is all in addition to our existing links with expert physiotherapists (either on-site, or local to you), orthotists, podiatrists and sports medicine specialists.
