Foot and ankle problems affect three out of four people at some stage of their lives.

For every condition, our focus is on finding a solution that is the least intrusive and provides the best possible results.

Foot and Ankle Injuries

LFAC treat a range of foot and ankle injuries, ranging from the routine to the complex. Whatever the problem, our team of specialists will use the most advanced techniques to help each patient achieve maximum mobility and eradicate pain.

Achilles Tendon Rupture

The Achilles tendon is located just behind and above the heel. Its role is to help the foot to bend downwards at the ankle. A rupture is a serious injury which needs to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.

Achilles Tendonitis

Tendonitis is a term which means inflammation or swelling, and it occurs often in and around the Achilles. There are two areas of the Achilles prone to this problem: in the middle of the tendon and at its insertion into the heel bone.

Ankle Osteoarthritis

Ankle osteoarthritis is a joint condition which results from damage and loss of the cartilage in a joint. Loss of, or damage to the cartilage can result in inflammation of the joint and sometimes leads to deformity.

Bunions - Hallux Valgus

The term bunion refers to a swelling on the side of the big toe joint, a condition which occurs when the big toe leans too much into the second toe. The swollen area is prone to rubbing from shoes, causing inflammation and pain.

Chronic Ankle Instability

Ankle instability is a condition characterised by the ankle ‘giving way’ or feeling wobbly and unreliable. It usually develops following an ankle sprain that was not diagnosed properly or has not healed.

Deformed Toes

There are many types of lesser toe deformities, including hammer, claw, mallet and cross-over toe deformities. Treatment can be non-operative or operative but it is important to understand the underlying mechanism that has led to the deformity.

Flat Feet

A person with a flat foot has little or no arch, the heel tilts outwards. While most adults who have flat feel rarely experience difficulties, those who experience problems require a timely referral to a specialist if long term difficulties are to be avoided.

Hallux Rigidus - Stiff Big Toe

A common problem which affects the big toe is called hallux rigidus or stiff big toe. It is a form of osteoarthritis which occurs when the cartilage within the joint wears out. LFAC can offer hallux rigidus surgery as a minimally invasive procedure.

Metatarsalgia - Forefoot Pain

Metatarsalgia means pain in the metatarsals of the foot, or forefoot pain. There are many possible causes of forefoot pain and your surgeon will make a careful assessment to decide upon the correct diagnosis and treatment.

Midfoot Arthritis

Patients with midfoot arthritis usually suffer pain and swelling. It is sometimes overlooked by non-specialists because there are so many small joints in the midfoot. A careful clinical assessment needs to be supplemented with special x-ray views.

Plantar Faciitis – Heel Pain

One in ten people will experience heel pain and for many, the problem will have a very significant impact upon their lives. LFAC has a dedicated Heel Pain Clinic for the rapid assessment and effective treatment of plantar fasciitis.

Sports Injuries

LFAC is renowned for the treatment of sports injuries. Our experience includes work with Premiership footballers, major rugby clubs and many other sportspeople competing at an elite level.


Tendinopathy is the term used for damage to the tendons, causing pain and if left untreated, serious problems and deformity. Patients with tendinopathy can normally be seen within our dedicated Heel Pain Clinic.

Miss A.F

Over many years I had had several surgical procedures on my toes and I was not keen for any more. However, within minutes of meeting Mr Klinke and having a sense that he was really listening to me and understood my concerns, I began to trust him. I also appreciated the fact that for the first time ever I could explain the different areas of pain in my feet and he understood and could name why there were problems.

Annie Green

For the last 5 years I have had a lump growing in my foot the size of a golf ball. I could hardly walk, and even in the shower I had to wear a padded shoe. All of the doctors and consultants that I saw didn’t want to tackle it. Finally, the consultant that I was under for a different complaint advised me to see Mr Mark Davies, “The only man in England who I would recommend for you to see.
