What do you do when your dream falls apart? Faced with an unplanned gap year after a setback in his veterinary pursuits, David finds himself at a crossroads. Chiropody, while not his initial passion, offers him a new direction. Yet, as he delves deeper, David finds himself on the forefront of an emerging surgical field, one that challenges the conventions of the medical world. Amidst growing opposition and skepticism, many ask: Shouldn’t only medical doctors operate?

This is the true tale of the birth of podiatry and one man’s unwavering determination. Supported by his wife and driven by a vision, David’s journey from 1978-86 captures the spirit of an era and the challenges of pioneering change against all odds.

David is a published author, blogger, former university lecturer and former podiatric surgeon. He had published many academic articles and two textbooks with Elsevier (formerly Churchill-Livingstone). Although retired from clinical practice, he is still involved with the podiatry profession and universities in the UK. He has spoken worldwide in New Zealand, USA, South Africa, Israel, Eire and Finland on his subject.

While most of his work is academic and intended for lay public consumption, he writes fictional work and is interested in military history. He is married, with four children and five grandchildren, and lives with his wife in South-West England.
