My name is Peter Rosenfeld and I am Consultant Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon and Head of the Foot & Ankle Unit at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Previously I was appointed as the Consultant Foot & Ankle surgeon to St Mary's Hospital, London in 2004.
I trained at the Royal London Hospital, including one year at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and attained the FRCS (Orth) in 2003. From there I went on to subspecialise in Foot & Ankle surgery with the internationally recognised Dr T.Saxby. Adopting a broad based approach, I developed the service at St Mary's into a regional foot & ankle unit receiving tertiary referrals from across Southern England. The multidisciplinary clinics included a specialised physiotherapist, podiatrist, orthotist and physicians with expertise in rheumatology and diabetes.
At Imperial, where I undertake both teaching and research - particularly in the areas of ankle replacement and cartilage reconstruction - I am a Sports Medicine trainer for West London and the Oxford regions. This particular area of expertise led in 2012 to appointment by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games - LOCOG - as Foot & Ankle Surgeon for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
I am also the nominated National Reference Surgeon for the Salto Ankle Prosthesis. This in means that I am closely involved in the training of other surgeons and establishing best surgical practice to maintain the high levels of performance and patient satisfaction associated with ankle replacement surgery using the Salto system.
I also run two courses at the Royal College of surgeons: a cadaveric instructional course on ankle replacements for new consultants, and a cadaveric physiotherapy instructional course on foot and ankle pathologies.
