Mr Anthony Perera is an expert orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon based at the Spire Hospital in Cardiff with fellowship training in Europe and the USA. His areas of expertise lie in treating sports injuries, ankle sprains and ankle instability, toe deformities and pain and performing minimally invasive bunion surgery and ankle arthroscopy. He passionately believes in developing a personalised approach to every patient using a vast range of conservative or surgical procedures available.
His orthopaedic training was undertaken by completing fellowships with leading foot and ankle surgeons across Europe and the USA. For this work, he was subsequently awarded the top prize by the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society in 2008. Mr Perera is now a recognised national leader in the field of minimally invasive bunion surgery which offers specific advantages for many patients and also teaches this technique to other surgeons across the UK and USA.
Mr Perera has also been invited to publish his work and lecture around the world including in America and China. He routinely publishes research on foot and ankle surgery and has won several national awards for this. In 2013, he was chosen as a finalist in the prestigious Laing Buisson Awards for the Medical Practice category. He is currently a vice president for the International Society of Minimally Invasive Surgery and Arthroscopy of the Foot and Ankle and is a board member of the International Ankle Instability Group.
