Associate professor Mark Gilheany is a highly-experienced foot and ankle surgeon. He is a registered specialist. He has been primarily in private practice in Melbourne since 1994.
He has worked tirelessly at improving surgical techniques in foot and ankle surgery with a focus on function and a patient focussed approach. He uses minimally invasive techniques as both a standalone approach for a range of foot and ankle problems and where appropriate incorporates these with traditional open procedures. He has lectured and taught these techniques over the past 10 years.
Bunions (Hallux Valgus) is a specific interest for Mark and he has published clinical research findings in relation to surgical and non-surgical elements of this common compliant. He has also pioneered the use of minimally invasive procedures to address common hammertoes in Australia and published outcomes research in this area.
Mark is committed to lifelong learning. He continues to actively teach and research. He has a diverse and extensive research, publication and presentation history and conducts educational workshops on a range of topics.
Mark holds surgical fellowships from Australia and the USA and is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow (Podiatric Medicine Faculty). Mark worked in health regulation and accreditation of training programs over a 20-year period and is the recipient of several professional awards.
