Mr Mike Barrett

I am an expert orthopaedic and trauma surgeon who specialises in treating foot and ankle conditions including trauma, and sports injuries. Vastly experienced, I am an excellent teacher and published author in his field.

Currently I am a consultant at Cambridge University Hospital, where I treat the most severely injured patients and challenging foot and ankle conditions. I also teach junior surgeons on a daily basis and am a co-founder of the a international digital education platform (opens in a new tab).

I receive referrals for expert input, or second opinions on complex foot ankle problems.

I treat all conditions of the foot and ankle including surgical and non surgical management of foot and ankle injuries, Achillies tendon disorders, hallux valgus (bunions), arthritis of the toe / foot / ankle (including replacement), flat foot deformity, ankle instability, peroneal tendon dysfunction, plantar fasciitis, and morton’s neuroma.

I've also written book chapters on foot and ankle surgery for a Bailey and Love series, and authored several peer review publications.

I trained on the East of England orthopaedic rotation. During this time, he was awarded the Trainee of the Year, Trinity Cup (best in class), and the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle society gold fellowship awards.

I completed fellowships in foot and ankle at the University Hospitals Dorset, and major trauma and limb reconstruction at the Royal London Hospital.

Other interests
