Introduction

Lewis is a clinician whose own experiences with sports injuries has allowed him to develop a keen interest in treating such injuries. After a successful encounter with podiatric treatment for football-related sports injuries, he empathises closely with such patients and their specific needs.

Lewis’ clinical approach focuses on utilising modern treatment techniques to get his patients back on their feet with minimal downtime. To accomplish this goal, he is deeply passionate about developing his professional skills and pushing himself to improve his skillset and expand his knowledge base.

Originally from Yorkshire, England, Lewis graduated from the University of Huddersfield (UK) with first-class honours in Podiatry. He is also trained and certified in medical shockwave applications by the International Society of Medical Shockwave Treatments.


CLINICAL INTERESTS


Performance Sports

“Many of my patients are high performance athletes from a wide range backgrounds who regularly participate in a variety of sports. Such athletes often present challenging cases that require specific attention to detail in order to maximise performance and minimise downtime in order to be ready for the next big event.“


High Arch Foot

“A high arch foot is very common amongst individuals with Caucasian backgrounds, and I am no exception. I noticed a high arch at a young age, but it didn’t cause me any problems until I began to exercise regularly and take part in sports such as football, running and going to the gym. People with high arches can develop various problems at the forefoot and rearfoot. As for myself, I suffered a plantar plate injury after increasing my exercise routine. By incorporating my understanding of biomechanics into my insole design, I was able to resolve my injury and prevent it from reoccurring.”


Fungal Nail Infection

“The hot and humid climate in Singapore and the surrounding region provides the perfect environment for fungal nail infections to thrive. However, fungal nail infections in Singapore are frequently neglected or insufficiently treated due to a lack of knowledge regarding treatment options. This means that patients often ignore the condition for months or even years until it begins to cause them greater discomfort or impact on their lives. With the right treatment plan and correct advice, fungal nail infections can be quickly and effectively treated.”
