MR EDMUND IEONG
Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon Subspecialist in foot and ankle surgery
I qualified from Imperial College London medical school in 2007. I undertook specialist orthopaedic training in London in the North West Thames London Deanery. During my training, I have had a broad exposure to orthopaedics in general, foot and ankle pathology and trauma. During my national training in the London Deanery, I have worked at St. Mary’s Major trauma centre and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital where I gained experience in managing complex foot and ankle pathology, reconstructive surgery and trauma. I subsequently undertook a specialist foot and ankle fellowship at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, covering deformity corrections and arthritic conditions. This was followed by a foot and ankle fellowship at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, with further experience in complex foot and ankle trauma, and diabetic foot conditions. I was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon to West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust in 2019.
I maintain an active involvement in teaching surgical trainees. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and I keep my knowledge and skills up to date by regularly attending conferences and educational courses. I have published research in peer reviewed journals and I have presented my research work at national and international conferences. I am a reviewer of research articles for several peer reviewed journals. I was awarded a place on the BOA leadership programme and I have developed quality improvement projects in patient education and promoting a patient centred approach to management.
I firmly believe in a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to managing my patients. Your involvement and education is key throughout the consultation and treatment pathway.
