Dr Gordon F Watt Podiatrist FFPM FCPodMed MChS DPodM
TSSS Clinical Advisory Board

I am retired having worked in podopaediatrics for thirty-nine years and lectured in podopaediatrics at Glasgow Caledonian University and as consultant podiatrist at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow where I developed an internationally recognized clinical and teaching facility. I was also an honorary senior lecturer to the University of Glasgow Medical School. I have published and researched widely in matters related to children’s feet. In particular – footwear and its influence on children’s feet, Turner syndrome, hypermobility syndrome, obesity, developmental co-ordination disorder, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and the foot in childhood cancers. I am a Fellow of the College of Podiatry and a Fellow of the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Help reduce our costs

The TSSS is a small charity and, although very happy to send out information on Turner Syndrome to all those who request it, does not have the funds to do this for free.

When requesting information please make a donation to cover the cost of photocopying and administration. Thank you.
