Amer Shoaib is a Specialist in Foot and Ankle Surgery. His current NHS practice is at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Trafford Hospitals, but he was previously a Consultant for seven years at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport.
His practice includes all aspects of surgery on the Foot and Ankle, from ingrowing toe nails and bunion surgery to complex club foot and ankle replacement surgery. He is one of very few surgeons in the Manchester area who regularly performs keyhole surgery for the foot and ankle – for bunions, hammer toes, metatarsalgia, big toe arthritis, achilles tendon repair, heel bone fractures and ankle injuries and arthritis.
Amer was an undergraduate at St. George’s Hospital Medical School in London, and then underwent Orthopaedic Surgical training in Wales and Oswestry. He has undergone specialist training in Foot and Ankle Surgery. He is a member of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, as well as the British Trauma Society, the British Limb Reconstruction Society and the European Foot and Ankle Society.
He has performed research on areas relevant to Foot and Ankle surgery. His research presentations include minimally invasive (keyhole) repair of the Achilles Tendon after rupture, as well as new treatments for Morton’s Neuroma. His research presentations are listed in his CV – click here to view.
He served with the Royal Army Medical Corps in Bosnia, and has experience of disaster and war surgery. His photograph was featured in the Sunday Times and Washington Post after a recent aid mission to Syria. You can see pictures here.
Amer is involved in the training of trainee orthopaedic surgeons and teaches on trauma to junior doctors. He also teaches on foot conditions on a Master’s degree course on orthopaedic surgery. He personally organises a surgical course for junior orthopaedic surgeons to learn about foot and ankle surgery, and another course about external fixation surgery
In the Manchester area, Amer works closely with networks of surgeons with similar interests. He also helps to run the Orthocycle Foundation Charity, which provides orthopaedic surgery and orthotics to less developed countries and those affected by war.
The charity also runs courses in Manchester to teach UK doctors about foot and ankle surgery and the use of external fixators in emergency orthopaedic surgery. He hosts a website for patients and professionals affected by the use of specialised Ilizarov circular fixators.
