Established by Dale Halford, a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon, Total Foot Surgery was formed to help patients in Suffolk and South Norfolk with their foot health problems.

Priding himself on the excellent levels of service provided, Dale always looks to offer friendly, straightforward advice in all consultations. At Total Foot Surgery, every available option is discussed in simple, easy to digest language, following a thorough and in-depth examination at one of three modern clinics throughout Suffolk.

With conditions affecting the foot, Total Foot Surgery believe that in some cases non-surgical procedures are often more suitable than surgical ones. Where appropriate these treatment options will be considered and discussed with you in the first instance. In cases where these treatments are not successful, or surgery is considered the only option, the procedures will be clearly explained, so our patients are fully informed before agreeing to any course of treatment.

Patients should also be aware, that at Total Foot Surgery all of our work is extensively audited using the national PASCOM-10 (Podiatric Audit of Surgery and Clinical Outcome Measurement) audit tool.

Modern procedures and inter-disciplinary care

Utilising the most modern and up-to-date procedures, such as Cartiva toe implants and Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, our aim is to get you up and running again as soon as possible and in the least invasive way achievable.

With close links to local Osteopaths and Physiotherapists, Total Foot Surgery offer true inter-disciplinary care. Where a fellow healthcare professional is better suited to providing treatment, Total Foot Surgery will always look to refer to them, to ensure our patients receive the best treatment possible, every time.

Some feedback from our clients

My two scarf osteotomies (24.01.13 and 10.07.13)  went so well. Left foot (Jan op) is completely back  to normal. Right foot (July op -now 11 weeks post-op with 4 weeks in plaster cast) feeling and looking good with almost full flexibility, just a little swelling and tightness. I’m keeping up with the exercises! Special thanks to: Mr Halford for his quiet and thorough expertise Dawn, for her friendliness and infectious smile Anna, for her dedication and obvious love of podiatry Ali, for her kindness and helpfulness Craig, for keeping me amused during the second op with memories of Norwich Lin, the receptionist, who was the helpful and friendly go-between, and often forgotten also to those whose names escape me but who all assisted with the procedures and for your kind consideration in allowing me to watch my op in July.
