Do you treat ingrown toenails and warts?

Yes we do! Our podiatrists are more than capable of determining whether you need an ingrown toe nail surgery and performing it if need be.  Fiona has had many years of experience in wart surgery under local anaesthetic or providing you with more conservative forms of treatment if that’s preferable.

Can you help me with orthotics?

Certainly! If you have current orthotics we are more than happy to review and assess those for you.  If you think you might need them or someone has suggested you do then we can also help with that.  Orthotics don’t always have to be expensive, there are more than one option and your podiatrist can discuss this with you.

Do you treat children?

Of course! Children can experience developmental problems with their feet, ingrown toenail problems, warts, growing pains in legs or even sporting injuries.  Our podiatrists are able to assess, treat and manage where needed.
