Matthew Welck - Foot and Ankle Surgeon London

I’m a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and I purely look after foot and ankle problems. I graduated from Leeds University Medical School with a medical degree. I also have first class honours with distinction Bachelor of science and a Master of science degrees. I am double fellowship trained in foot and ankle surgery as well as a clinical and research fellowship at the world-renowned Foot and Ankle Institute in Baltimore, USA.

I’m an NHS consultant at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where we see complex foot and ankle problems, that haven’t been solved elsewhere. We regularly see international patients.

I’m involved in foot and ankle surgery teaching and convene several national courses. I’m also extensively involved in foot and ankle research, and have presented this work nationally and internationally.

When I’m away from surgery life, I’m a keen runner, guitarist and I enjoys spending time with my three children, my dog (Buddy), and my whiskey collection!

Mr Welck is extensively published in his field, and is an honorary associate professor at UCL.

He has over 50 peer reviewed publications, book chapters. He presents his work regularly both nationally and internationally.
