Led by orthopaedic surgeon Dr Simon Platt, Coast Foot and Ankle specialises in foot and ankle treatments for adults and adolescents. Dr Platt works with people from all walks of life, and he understands that if you have a foot or ankle injury, you’re probably feeling a bit worried about it.
A treatment plan that’s right for you
With over 15 years’ experience as a foot and ankle specialist, Dr Platt understands that everyone has their own unique circumstances to consider. That’s why he’ll work with you to map out a treatment plan that’s right for you. He won’t suggest surgery if you don’t need it, and he’ll talk to you about your treatment options up-front.
Dr Platt is experienced in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery including sports injuries, arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery. He was one of the first surgeons trained in the UK in minimally invasive foot surgery, and he’s thrilled to bring this expertise to Australia.
