What does a foot and ankle surgeon do?
Some orthopaedic surgeons specialise in disorders of the knee. They deal with conditions such as knee arthritis, and damage to the knee ligaments. The operations and treatments that knee specialists offer include total and partial knee replacement, arthroscopic knee surgery, and knee ligament reconstruction (including anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction).
Regulation of private foot and ankle surgeons
There is a professional association for orthopaedic surgeons in the UK who have a special interest in foot and ankle surgery and treatment - the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (BOFAS, formerly BOFFS). The British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, affiliated to the British Orthopaedic Association and to the European Foot and Ankle Society was founded as a result of an increasing interest in foot and ankle surgery in the UK. Most UK foot and ankle specialists will belong to this organisation.
The British Orthopaedic Association is the professional association for over 4,000 surgeons and training surgeons treating injuries and disorders of bones, joints and their associated tissues.
