About me

After graduating from the University of Manchester, Mr Briggs trained in orthopaedic surgery in the North East of England, the USA and Germany. He was appointed as a consultant in 1994, developing a specialist interest in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery. He introduced the modern generation of ankle joint replacements to Newcastle in 2000. He has an international reputation for his work in rheumatoid arthritis of the foot, and is well known for his expertise with problems associated with diabetes, haemophilia, and foot and ankle problems associated with neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and stroke.
Mr Briggs’s main research interests are in the structure and function of the foot. With over 30 publications and book chapters, and research prizes at national and international meetings, he is regularly invited to conferences and educational meetings for his expertise. He was the first British Orthopaedic Surgeon to be awarded the prestigious Austrian-Swiss-German Fellowship in 2004. He is currently developing new surgical techniques in the reconstruction of the forefoot.
Mr Briggs was the Director of Orthopaedic Training in the North of England from 1999 to 2004. He has served on the Education Committee of the British Orthopaedic Association, and was Secretary then Chairman of the Education Committee of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.
