What the readers have said about my latest book

  • Wonderful book!! So helpful and not all medical jargon that you can't understand. Would recommend this highly to anyone who is about to undergo this kind of surgery.


  • “I liked the diagrams very much … diagrams and drawings are a highly useful way to convey complicated information.”

    Lyndon Jones,

  • “…I think that your book should become a “MUST HAVE” for everyone interested in Morton’s Neuroma - patients and clinicians alike.”

    Dr Marius Vintila,

  • “Very easy to understand … I would have found it helpful to have something like this as I was on google and wanted as much information as possible prior to surgery.”

    Mrs J Norton, Patient,

  • "I think this is a novel and brilliant piece of work. I worked through some of your experiences with the team at Ilkeston... the consent chapter was exceptional."

    Dr Tim Kilmartin (consultant),
