We are a team of specialists dedicated to the management of foot and ankle conditions. We are based at OSD healthcare in Hemel Hempstead. 

The treatment of foot and ankle conditions often require multiple specialties to work together and we strongly believe in collaborative working to achieve the correct diagnosis and the best outcomes. 

Set up by Ed Ieong and Ben Rudge, we work together as a unit with the help and assistance of other specialists to deliver comprehensive treatment of all foot and ankle conditions. We work together with musculoskeletal radiologists, physiotherapists, orthotists and podiatrists to ensure all aspects of your treatment are covered. Holistic, patient centred care is our priority. With our collective experience and integrated work ethos, we are here to provide you the best care under a single group. 

As part of our collaborative approach, we undertake regular multidisciplinary team meetings to discuss challenging and interesting cases for both governance and education. We have direct links to specialists to ensure care is consistent and concordant. 

This allows us to offer a one stop service; all the relevant specialtes and expertise under one roof. We are also able to provide some of the latest treatments including shockwave therapy and the Alter-G treadmil.

We are active in our role in teaching and training and bring together a wealth of experience to share and learn from others. We are happy to undertake GP and physiotherapy teaching seminars and welcome the opportunity to discuss your cases in our MDT meetings.
