Lyndon Jones FCPodS
Consultant Podiatric Surgeon
Having foot trouble shows in your face – that is what my grandmother (Mam Gi – the Welsh, literally meaning old woman) told me as a young man when considering a career in chiropody. She went on to tell me that I would never be short of work, particularly if I did one simple thing.
“What should I do Mam Gi?” I asked all wide eyed and expectantly thinking she would tell me to study hard and be technically excellent.
Her reply was so simple that it never left me:
“Look after your patients as if you were looking after me” and with that she gave me a big hug (Cwtch in Welsh) and I knew I was doing the right thing.
I have since spent a great deal of my time studying – healthcare is a never ending development opportunity and learning of the latest techniques in surgery and general clinical care. Podiatry, as we now are, has moved on a long way in my 35 years involvement.
Since retirement from clinical work in July 2017 I now spend much of my time with our team in discussion as to the ways we can enhance our community’s experiences when they visit us. Creating an emotional bond for us all at the TFH community is, I believe, the sure fire way to ensure the continued excellence we offer and secure the long term future of our relationship.
I and the team are here to look after you, our patient, with the utmost of respect, empathy, care and attention. In doing so I believe that you will experience the very best in clinical outcomes whilst having a thoroughly enjoyable and long lasting emotional experience.
I expect you to demand excellence; if you do not receive it then we want to know so we can put it right.
Mam Gi would not want it any other way!

Ever since I decided at the age of 15 that I wanted to be a Chiropodist, I have loved being part of this profession.
Many people find this strange, but I have always enjoyed helping people. I gain huge satisfaction when I see somebody hobble into the clinic in pain and leave with a smile on their face, free of pain. One of our patients commented on the miracle of podiatry – we can cure pain instantly! This is because we have many different skills at our disposal. It may be making removable silicone devices for toes to keep corns at bay, or insoles to keep pressure away from a painful area on the foot or even to prevent an ulcer re-occurring.
With modern advances this has extended to exciting technology like microwave therapy to treat verrucae and Clearanail to treat fungal nail infections. This is fabulous because treating those conditions used to be very frustrating.
Latterly there have been huge advances with our ability to assess functional foot pain. We are able use video gait analysis of the whole body – which allows us to slow down the video so that we can see exactly what is happening. Diagnostic ultrasound is another huge advance for us as it allows us to make a definitive diagnosis at the first appointment. We used to have to refer on to a specialist in hospital, which created huge delays in diagnosis and treatment.
Although I am now in clinic very infrequently, we have weekly clinical meetings and frequent discussions on case studies which we all enjoy, especially when we see great results.
I look forward to continuing to help many more people by relieving their foot pain and keeping them active and enabling them to live life without thinking about their feet!

My training took place at the Wales Centre for Podiatric Studies in Cardiff and since qualification I have developed my clinical skills in both private practice and the NHS.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
HCPC Registered Podiatrist
After graduating in 2014, I started my podiatry career working for the NHS in Dorset. I joined the fantastic team at Total Foot Health the following year and haven’t looked back! I enjoy the variety of each day and love being able to help patients walk out pain free.
Since completing courses on joint and soft tissue mobilisations, I have developed an interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation treatments. This has enabled me to work more closely with our musculoskeletal specialist, Edward Henstridge, and build on my knowledge and skills within this area.
In my spare time I keep fit by going to the gym and running along the seafront in my home town of Bournemouth. I also enjoy drawing and painting. I get to demonstrate my creative side by developing the patient leaflets you see in clinic.

I am one of those lucky people that really enjoy what I do and wake up in the morning thinking about how I can help patients with their foot pain today. This is greatly aided by working with the whole team at TFH helping to give patients the very best care and experience.
I graduated towards the end of last century from the University of Southampton and have worked in most areas of podiatry for nearly 20 years. For the last 15 years I have been working with podiatrists and Consultant Surgeons specialising and leading clinical services in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and prescription of orthoses and insoles. Since joining Total Foot Health I have become expert in diagnostic ultrasound of the foot and ankle and injection therapy. I take great pleasure in talking to groups of other health professionals regarding the techniques and benefits of ultrasound diagnosis and interventions in foot and ankle pain and injuries.
I have a young family, two daughters, that are growing into wonderful young people and I enjoy spending time with them. When I am not working or with my family I enjoy playing hockey, which I have played to a very good level.

I am committed to treatments that instantly give pain relief and really make a difference, so everyday life can be yours to enjoy. I take pride in helping patients that ‘hobble in and fly out’. Walking effortlessly is so important for self-esteem and overall health. I love the fact that so much pain relief can be provided instantaneously through podiatry care. With every appointment I aim to give expert advice that helps you care for your feet between visits.
Originally from Weymouth, Dorset I enjoyed growing up by the sea. My career in healthcare started with Nursing and led to seven years within the NHS. Here I noticed how important pain free feet were to people’s mobility and lifestyle. This inspired me to retrain in podiatry and bring that service to those who need it.
For this reason, I really enjoy the home visits for Total Foot Health, providing our service to people who find it difficult to reach our clinic either short term due to surgeries or longer term as time never stops! This feels particularly worthy and helpful.
I have completed a course in soft tissue mobilisation. This type of massage feels likes pampering, but also does wonders for tight and sore muscles. Working with the team at Total Foot Health allows me to enhance the high standards of care for our wonderful patients.

I started working with Lyndon in 1999 at the start of his private practice. As his private secretary I enjoyed the personal contact with patients and helping them with their treatment pathway from start to finish.
