  • Bunions – This condition is a physical foot deformity involving the 1st metatarsal and the bones of the big toe.

 

  • Corns and Callouses – This condition occurs on the ball of the foot and the heel typically, and is the result of excess pressure.

 

  • Children’s Feet – Children are not small adults. The feet of young children are soft and pliable, so abnormal pressures can easily cause the foot to deform.

 

  • Flat Feet – Flat feet refers to the position of the feet when one is standing.

 

  • Fungal Toenail Infection – Fungus can sometimes infect toenails. This condition affects about 10% of the population, especially the elderly and diabetic.

 

  • Heel Pain – Although there are many conditions that cause heel pain, Plantar Fasciitis is the most common condition treated by our professional team of podiatrists.

 

  • Plantar Wart Treatment – Warts on the foot are growths on the skin caused by a virus called Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

 

 

  • Sweaty Feet – Excessive sweating, medically termed Hyperhidrosis, is often occupationally disabling and socially embarrassing.

 

 

General Podiatry Services We Offer

We also offer a range of general podiatry services including:

 

  • Diabetic Foot Care – Having your feet checked every six months by a podiatrist will help detect changes early to minimise the chances of problems occurring.

 

  • Ingrown Nail Surgery – The procedure is undertaken under local anaesthetic. A small and quick injection of local anaesthetic is administered by the podiatrist into either side of the nominated toe to completely numb the entire toe.

 

 

 

  • Orthotics – Foot orthotics are shoe inserts designed by podiatrists to support, align, or improve the function of the foot.

 

  • Wart Treatment – We use a range of different wart treatment options which include liquid nitrogen, acid preparations, formalin 10%, silver nitrate, efudix cream, deep needling and surgery.
