Mr Withey's surgical technique for midfoot osteoarthritis
Arthritis of the tarsometatarsal joints is a challenging problem to treat; it can cause chronic foot pain and functional disability. This surgical technique uses a trephine to resect the joint and a dowel plug of bone graft with titanium locking plate fixation to remove the joint, published in the American Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Graduating in 2001 Mr Withey has worked in the NHS specialising in Podiatric Surgery. He was awarded his fellowship in Podiatric Surgery in 2013.

Gaining the correct diagnosis is imperitive. Diagnostic imaging (xrays, ultrasound, CT and MRI scans) helps establish an accurate diagnosis to tailor the treatment plan.
Diagnostic imaging can be offered at a variety of locations.
