Professional statement

Mr Paul Halliwell is an expert consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Guildford who specialises in the ankle and foot, including in paediatrics. At his NHS and private clinics, Mr Halliwell focuses on accurate diagnosis and careful explanation. Treatments he offers include ankle arthroscopy, minimally invasive surgery, ankle joint replacement, correction of tendon problems and of difficult cases of arch collapse or deformity.

Mr Halliwell qualified in medicine in 1988 at Guy's Hospital, London, thereafter completing his orthopaedic training on the South West Thames Programme. At Guy's Hospital Mr Halliwell simultaneously received a BSc degree in psychology of medicine and neuropsychology. Later, he undertook fellowships in Toronto, Canada in trauma and joint reconstruction, and Great Ormond Street Hospital located in central London, which is one of the world's leading children's hospitals

In 2001, Mr Halliwell was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Royal Surrey County Hospital. Due to the nature of his extensive training and practice experience, in 2003 Mr Halliwell began developing a special interest in total ankle replacement, which he continues to perform regularly. Mr Halliwell is one of the few surgeons in the UK who performs this procedure at high-volume with 20 to 30 per year, some of which are complex reconstructions.

Mr Halliwell is an avid teacher. He contributes routinely to national programmes, as well as organising and teaching on national and international surgical training courses. He teaches ankle replacement to surgical trainees and consultants across the UK and Europe. When teaching students, trainees and peers, Mr Halliwell emphasises a holistic, "human" approach to patient care.

At a national level, Mr Halliwell has been elected President of his national speciality body, the British Orthopaedic Food and Ankle Society, for the year 2022-23. Previously, he has been Chairman of the BOFAS Outcomes Committee from 2014 to 2021 and an FRCS (Tr & Orth) examiner.

Published in multiple peer-reviewed journals, Mr Halliwell has accomplished works on various topics including tibial fractures, hand injuries, and ankle arthritis networks in addition to computerised surgical data collection. For his work on brain development during his BSc year, ankle fractures, spine fractures, and fractures of the acetabulum, Mr Halliwell has been awarded several awards, prizes and podium presentations.
