Podiatrists, also known as chiropodists, are experts in foot health. 
Podiatrists undergo exhaustive training and are able to diagnose and treat nail and skin pathologies of the feet as well as to perform nail surgery under local anesthesia. 

Podiatrists are also experts on foot biomechanics and musculoskeletal conditions of the feet and ankles, like Achilles tendon problems and plantar fasciitis. Podiatrists are also trained to assess your gait and posture and prescribe orthoses that best suit your foot condition.


What we do

During your podiatry appointment, we will carry out a thorough assessment to establish a diagnosis and a treatment plan you are happy with to treat your foot problem.

As part of this assessment, we will carry out vascular and  neurological tests to assess the overall health of your feet.
