The Podiatrist

Dr Simon Spooner qualified as a State Registered Chiropodist (Podiatrist) in 1991 from the University of Brighton, and in addition to his BSc in Podiatry, he was awarded the Paul Shenton prize for his research into callus. He went on to complete his PhD in Podiatry from the University of Leicester in 1997, which focussed on the causes and treatment of inherited foot problems.

Having previously taught clinical podiatry to students at University College, Northampton and Matthew Bolton College, Birmingham, Simon moved to Plymouth in 1998 where he worked as a Lecturer in Podiatric Biomechanics, Sports Injuries and Orthotic Manufacture. In April 2002 Simon became the Head of the School of Podiatry at the University of Plymouth, where he developed the new degree curriculum. Simon is now the Director of Podiatry at Peninsula Podiatry.

Simon's practice specialties include sports medicine, foot orthotics, and paediatric and adult foot and gait abnormalities. In addition to his practice, Simon has published a number of research articles on podiatric care and has delivered papers at both national and international conferences, and provided postgraduate training for a number of NHS Trusts. He has given advice on athletic footwear on television, worked as a podiatrist at the London Marathon and acts as a professional advisor to the British Journal of Podiatric Medicine. Simon continues to research and publish in the field of clinical podiatry.
