Matt joined Dorset Orthopaedic in 2001 after graduating from the University of Salford with a degree in prosthetics and orthotics. He began his career as an Prosthetist/Orthotist, developing a particular interest in paediatric treatment.

Before becoming Clinic Manager at the Southern Clinic in Ringwood in 2013, Matt was responsible for the development of clinical partners for Dorset Orthopaedic around the world, presenting and lecturing on the use of silicone in prosthetics and orthotics, as well as developing new everyday silicone solutions for patients.

In 2016, Matt became Clinical and Silicone Services Director with the goal of growing and developing clinical care services in the UK and external silicone partner networks globally.

Matt became Managing Director here at Dorset Ortho in 2019 and has steered the business successfully through a global pandemic, installing policies to keep our patients and staff safe. He remains passionate about his clinical work and helping patients return to improved levels of comfort, mobility and independence is a key focus for him. He particularly enjoys helping children and feels inspired when he sees a child overcome the obstacles that face them.

When he isn’t working, Matthew loves the outdoors and enjoys water sports including sailing and paddleboarding, where he is often accompanied by his dogs.
