After Bristol, Mr Foote completed a Specialist Knee Fellowship at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, working with Professor Price and his team. This is also an outstanding Fellowship and Mr Foote was trained in how to perform the famous “Oxford partial knee replacement” as well as receiving further training in complex primary knee replacements.
