Mr. Daniel Marsland MSc FRCS (Tr & Orth)
Daniel originally qualified in Medicine from Sheffield University in 2003 and went on to complete his Orthopaedic higher specialist training in Wessex, including a visiting trauma fellowship in Liverpool.
Daniel specialises in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery, including hallux valgus surgery (bunions), total ankle replacement, deformity correction and fusion surgery. He has a particular interest in sport injuries and arthroscopic surgery of the foot and ankle and completed his MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine at Bath University. He is trained in shockwave therapy to treat both Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis. He also treats complex foot and ankle trauma, as well as general trauma.
He has extensive fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery at world renowned centres including:
- Mater Adult Hospital, Brisbane (Michael Lutz and Ben Forster);
- Fortius Clinic, London (James Calder);
- London Orthopaedic Clinic (Lloyd Williams);
To support his fellowship training in Australia he was awarded the prestigious British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society Gold Award. He has also undertaken a travelling fellowship to the University of Amsterdam to visit Professor Niek van Dijk, a pioneer in arthroscopic surgery.
Daniel has taught surgical techniques at international and national meetings and is due to sit as Faculty at the next annual European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) meeting in Milan, 2021. He has also recently been lead faculty for an international webinar discussing the management of ankle syndesmosis injuries. One his highlights for 2020, was being filmed by BBC South Today programme and describing the challenges of working through the COVID-19 pandemic.
He is currently the research lead in Trauma & Orthopaedics at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital and has set up a collaboration with the University of Winchester to study gait after great toe (1st MTPJ) fusions. He has strong research interests with over 30 publications in peer reviewed journals. His experience includes a research fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He has authored the popular book “Crash Course in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology”, widely used by medical students, and more recently written book chapters on ankle instability and foot trauma.
Other sports roles include working as a pitch side doctor for Swindon Town F.C. and providing ringside trauma cover at English Amateur Boxing events.
