We treat patients with a variety of foot and lower limb problems.
 
Our services include:
 

F     Diabetic Assessments - specialist Diabetic Assessment clinic, which involves an assessment of diabetic patients every 3-months. We utilise the Doppler Neuropen and Toe/Ankle Brachial Pressure Indices.

F     Nail surgery for in-growing toe nails under local anaesthetic.

F     Bio-mechanical assessments - of the lower limb including insoles and orthotics.  Many common lower limb complaints can be related to biomechanical dysfunction (such as poor posture of the foot and leg) and can be treated effectively through the use of re-moulded or custom made insoles and orthotic devices.

 

F   Poor alignment of the feet and legs can c, often disrupting normal knee function and hip alignment as well as increasing forces on the muscles in the lower backause wear and tear to other parts of the body.
