Podiatry Services

The podiatry service offers assessment and intervention for those patients with painful foot and lower limb conditions where this has reduced mobility and independence.

We provide a comprehensive range of general podiatry and specialist clinics designed to reduce foot problems and improve mobility by early intervention and management. A domiciliary home visit service is available for patients who are housebound.

Chiropody

A relaxing foot soak followed by all toe nails expertly cut, cleared and filed. Any callous or corns removed and the skin and nails buffed with an electric file. Completed with an invigorating foot massage.

Regular toe nail cutting service especially suitable for patients with diabetes, mobility issues or toenail conditions.

Nail Surgery

Nail surgery is a minor operation which is routinely carried out to treat painful toenail conditions such as involuted, thickened and ingrown toenails. The procedure involves removal of either part of or the entire painful toenail. The nail bed/matrix is treated to prevent unwanted painful regrowth. The procedure is carried out under a local anaesthetic to ensure the patients do not feel any pain during the surgery. Patients will be given re-dressing appointments.

Gait Analysis / Biomechanics

The biomechanics team assesses a range of foot and lower limb conditions which include, foot and ankle, leg and lower back pain. The clinical assessment may include joint assessments as well as gait analysis. The patient is required to attend their appointment with a skirt or a pair of shorts to enable easy observation of the legs. The treatment program may include an exercise regime, orthotic devices, footwear modification, steroid injection therapy or acupuncture. The provision of orthotic devices would require the patient to attend with appropriate low heeled footwear with an effective fastener, for example lace up, velcro or buckle fastener.
