    Hi, I’m John Powell, I trained at the Edinburgh School till 1975
    employed in Private practice and NHS I was the Tyne and wear delegate to the Societies ADA in 2005 & 2006. My motions were related to NHS limitations
    on practice and the promotion of the use of podiatrists in A&E Departments.
    A brief career summary appears on my webpage (must get around to sorting it out)


    Since MDW (also a Podiatrist) and I Tango about four nights a week I am more interested in Dance Injuries than Sports Injuries these days.

    Having met the late Solomon Balkin on two occasions I have a particular interest in Silicone Microdroplet Implants for preventing corn and callus formation and particularly in the prevention of re-occurring Diabetic Ulcers.

    Hi John thanks for taking the time to intorduce yourself so well. Must admit I am jealous of your ability to dance 4 nights a week. Must admit my only dancing seems now days to be at the Ball / Party / Dinner at the end of the conference and after a couple of sips?!?
    If one has had enough sips the chronic injuries do not seem to hurt so bad and one tends to think one does not look so ancient at the time ::--))??

    Do the Silicone implants last long term?? Can they be used on a weight bearing area?
    Must admit this is a topic I have not looked into for some years. Where can I follow this up??
