Andrew Foggitt is a UK trained Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon who studied at Liverpool University Medical School, before undertaking his surgical and orthopedic training in the Wessex region of the South of England. He passed the orthopedic exit exam in 2000 and took up a Consultant post in November 2002 in Winchester, UK, as a General Orthopedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in foot and ankle surgery. This was a new post and he set up a foot and ankle service, which was sufficiently successful, that he had to give up his general orthopedic practice to concentrate on purely foot and ankle surgery, which he has continued, for over 19 years before moving to the Burjeel Hospital in Dubai, full-time, to provide foot and ankle services to the local population. He undertakes a broad range of surgeries covering arthritic conditions of the foot and ankle, sports injuries of the ankle, ankle arthroscopy, tendon transfers, reconstructive surgery, Achilles tendon disorders, plantar fasciitis, curly toes, bunions and ingrowing toenails. He is supported by an integrated hospital team, providing a wholistic service, including nurses, physiotherapy, podiatrists, orthotics, and a dedicated back-room team who will assist you through your hospital journey. He looks forward to providing you with a personalized service to look after your foot & ankle problems.
