I work in the NHS at Dorset County Hospital. I also work privately at the Winterbourne Hospital in Dorset, and at the Fortius Clinic in London.
I'm Nick Savva, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, specialising in Foot and Ankle surgery.
I treat all adult patients with foot and ankle problems. I regularly attend meetings of foot and ankle surgeons where we pool our collective experience of rare and difficult conditions. If your problem is particularly difficult or unusual it will feature in one of these meetings.
Sports injuries are of particular interest to me. My practice at the Fortius Clinic in London regularly exposes me to professional and non-professional athletes.
Arthritis forms a large part of my work. There is an array of non-operative options that can make a difference to pain, deformities and quality of life in general. There are also surgical options. Arthritis can occur at any stage in life, but it tends to occur as we age. Seniority is no barrier to treatment. Nor is it a barrier to surgery. General anaesthesia is a very safe option, although, almost every surgical procedure that I perform can be done under some form of spinal, regional or local anaesthesia.
The majority of my patients are 10 years or older. I do treat children younger than this. However, foot and ankle surgery in younger children is very specialised. If I am not happy treating a particularly young patient I will know who to send them to.
