MEDSTARS SAYS

Mr Mark Foster impresses us with his sincere approach to ongoing professional development and a desire to provide an empathic patient-centred approach to podiatry for both complex and common conditions. He has developed particular expertise in biomechanics and orthotics, and is well-regarded by foot and ankle surgeons in the region, with whom he collaborates.

"I love my job but when I am not at work you will probably find me out on my bike enjoying the countryside pretending to be keeping fit. Failing that, I will probably be in the garden with my wife and our cat and chickens!"

EDUCATION

Birmingham School of Podiatry 2000

LANGUAGES

English


After graduating in 2000, Mr Mark Foster immediately started working privately, sticking to the core principles of podiatry, routine chiropody, wound care and minor surgery for treatment of ingrowing toenails. He also aligned himself with physio, osteopathic and chiropractic therapists to gain as much experience in musculoskeletal pathology as possible. This has given him a more holistic and rounded approach when prescribing orthotics for patients, taking into account the global picture of their body - and not just the knee down! Podiatry has been good to Mr Foster and has taken him to interesting posts and places. This has included: - Chief 3 in Dudley South PCT, heading up the Biomechanical Department and Orthotics Manufacturing lab. - Snow and Rock in London, making orthotics for skiers (Mr Foster he loves skiing!) - London School of Podiatry, teaching in the orthotics lab. During his time in the NHS, Mr Foster worked alongside a podiatric surgeon and this has set him up well for his work now, as he take referrals from different orthopaedic surgeons for foot, knee and hip patients. Along the way, Mr Foster has added to his repertoire with podiatric acupuncture and joint mobilisation, both of which he refined on a visit to Australia where he spent some time with a muscoloskeletal doctor in Sydney. However, he likes to keep up to date with the basics with regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) because these, delivered well, with kindness and a human approach yield great results for patients.
