Dr Antony Gardner graduated from Cambridge University (BA, 1998) and Oxford University (BM BCh, 2001) and did his basic surgical training in the South-West of the UK before completing his Advanced Specialist Training in Orthopaedic surgery in Singapore in 2012. He developed a specialist interest in Trauma and foot and ankle surgery, and returned to the UK for his fellowship training in the Orthopaedic Trauma Centre in Oxford (2013). Following his fellowship, he has been helping to run a busy trauma service in Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.
His specialty interests include Orthopaedic trauma, particularly post traumatic limb reconstruction, with experience managing bone and soft tissue infections and osteomyelitis. He has much experience using both conventional techniques and Ilizarov type ring fixators to treat complex limb deformities. He also has a keen interest in foot and ankle surgery, including degenerative conditions affecting the foot and ankle, Hallux valgus (bunions), ankle instability and Charcot arthropathy.
He is able to provide a specialist opinion for a wide variety of Orthopaedic conditions, both non-operative and operative treatment to all patients from the diabetic foot ulcer sufferer to the elite athlete. He is trained in Key-hole surgery (arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery) for foot and ankle and trauma.
Dr Gardner is a regular regional speaker and trainer for the use of trauma implants and circular frames, innovative trauma fixation techniques, and leads workshops in advanced trauma surgery. He aims to continue in ensuring the best practices for trauma and foot and ankle, through combining surgical skill and competency with evidence-based techniques to deliver the best outcome for his patients.
