Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon
Specialising in Disorders of the Foot & Ankle
Do you dread putting on those work shoes in the morning because you know as the day goes on your feet will just become more and more painful? Does the shape of your toes now make it painful to wear closed footwear?
Are you a keen walker but have found that foot pain has stopped you enjoying our lovely countryside? Perhaps you are finding that you can’t walk the dog for as long as you used to?
Have you had an injury to your ankle in the past that you just don’t feel you have fully recovered from but no one seems to take you seriously? Do you find that you just don’t trust your ankle anymore and it feels unsteady?
I understand it can be difficult to know what to do and you may be wondering if surgery is or isn’t the right thing for you.
Every day in clinic I meet people like yourself who are just trying to wear shoes without pain, get back to going for walks or return to the sport they love. I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Surgeon with clinics in Chichester, Worthing and Brighton. I specialise in helping people with foot deformities like bunions and hammer toes, painful foot arthritis, ankle arthritis, ankle instability and more.
Not every condition requires surgery but if it does - I can help. I am an expert in minimally invasive surgical treatments and also carry out non-surgical treatments like injections and shockwave therapy. Over the years I have helped thousands of people just like you with good results. I know that recovering from an operation can really get in the way of work and life so I try and offer minimally invasive solutions that have a faster recovery and allow a quicker return to normal. Sometimes minimally invasive isn’t possible but I have also carried out hundreds of procedures to correct large deformities as well as procedures to help arthritis to the ankle and foot.
My surgical training took place in the UK but I have also undertaken further international fellowship training in the US. If you are seeking an opinion about whether surgery might help your foot or ankle condition or if non-surgical treatments are available then do get in touch and book in to see me.
Mr Ajis completed his higher surgical training in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in Cheshire/Merseyside, culminating in achieving Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons FRCS (Tr & Orth). Here he developed an interest in foot & ankle surgery and was awarded a place on one of the most sought after and highly regarded international foot & ankle training fellowships at the Institute for Foot & Ankle Reconstruction in the USA with Dr Mark Myerson. Following this, further fellowship training was undertaken with one of the most experienced foot & ankle surgeons in the UK, Mr Nicholas Geary. Being dual fellowship trained has meant that Mr Ajis is familiar with the latest cutting edge treatments with experience in complex foot & ankle reconstruction surgery, ankle replacement surgery, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for the foot and for the ankle, arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, extra corporeal shockwave therapy, sports injuries, enhanced recovery regimes as well as bunion and lesser toe surgery.
Throughout his career Mr Ajis has maintained a keen interest in research. Starting at medical school he was successful in gaining a Bachelor in Medical Science degree with honours BMedSc (Hons Physiol) in addition to his medical degree MBChB. With a desire to contribute to the field of foot & ankle surgery, Mr Ajis has published a large number of research papers in high impact factor peer reviewed journals including review articles and book chapters. He has represented his specialty on a national level at the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) UK.
Throughout his career Mr Ajis has won a number of prizes and awards for academic distinctions and travelling fellowships. He has delivered many educational presentations to surgeons at local, national and international meetings. He has led many audit projects that have resulted in safer surgery, improved patient outcomes and a significantly better patient experience. Mr Ajis constantly monitors his own practice keeping up to date, recording patient outcomes and acting on patient feedback.
Mr Ajis is an enthusiastic educator. He is an interviewer and examiner at Brighton & Sussex Medical School and is involved with training the next generation of doctors from medical students to senior registrars. He is also a faculty member on a number of training courses on foot & ankle surgery held throughout the country.
During leisure time Mr Ajis enjoys playing tennis and Formula One motorsport. As an established National Trust member he is steadily making his way around all the different properties with his wife.
