Our Podiatrists

Helen Crawford

Professional Qualifications:
BSc Podiatric Medicine (London)
FAETC, M.S.S.F, HPC Registered (England),
Member Podiatry Association Singapore

Helen gained her degree in Podiatric Medicine with a Distinction in London and subsequently gained extensive work experience in the UK. Her specialist areas in the UK were in diabetic foot and biomechanics. Since 1995 Helen has worked in a wide variety of settings in Singapore and has been instrumental in the setting up and running of several hospitals’ podiatry departments. Her expertise took her to do consultancy work for most of the government hospitals. She is also an active member of the Podiatry Association (Singapore) and is a qualified shoe fitter. Helen has vast experience in dealing with all aspects of podiatry, where she puts in her personal touch when dealing with each and every one of her patients.

Since marrying a 'flat footer' and having her children, one of whom is in-toeing and the other flat footed, she has a special interest in paediatrics.

More recently due to her husband requiring back surgery she has developed an interest in dealing with back problems associated with a combination of leg length discrepancies and foot issues. She works closely with osteopaths, physiotherapists, Pilates instructors, dieticians and orthopaedic foot surgeons and feels a holistic approach to healing is the best approach.

Robert Ashton

Professional Qualifications:
BSc Hlth Sc Pod
Member Podiatry Association Singapore

Robert qualified as a podiatrist from the Charles Stuart University in Australia after which he worked in a private clinic in New South Wales before moving to Singapore. He has worked in Singapore since 2006 becoming one of the most recognised Podiatrists in Singapore. During his four years at Singapore General Hospital he gained experience in a broad scope of podiatric practice.

He has trained in numerous areas of podiatry and has special interests in sports podiatry, biomechanics and paediatric podiatry. He works with other health care professionals such as osteopaths and physiotherapists ensuring that his patients receive a comprehensive treatment plan. Robert's sporting interests have seen him working closely with athletes from various sporting fields, from the weekend warrior to the elite athletes. Robert is a keen player of a number of different sports including Australian Rules football, basketball and touch rugby and has participated in various professional sporting events in South East Asia. He is also an avid runner, snowboarder and wakeboarder.  Due to his own injuries though (multiple shoulder injuries and 2 ACL repairs of the knee) Robert has had to slow down his sporting participation in some of these activities which led to him having a greater understanding of the rehabilitation process. 

Robert applies his vast experience and clinical knowledge to have patients returning to their desired activities as soon as possible.
