Nail Surgery

Ingrowing toe nails are usually very painful and can often become infected and more problematic without treatment. Sometimes these problems can be solved through regular Podiatry appointments, however in chronic cases further action may be needed.
Nail surgery is a minor operation performed under local anaesthetic to remove part or the whole of a problematic and, or painful nail. We often do not have to take a whole nail away, just the section that is causing pain, we then apply a chemical called Phenol in attempt to stop the problematic section of nail growing back. Most patient can attend work or school the following day but will be asked to refrain from sports, swimming and tight footwear until the toe is healed
Full recovery can usually take between 6 to 8 weeks, during that time we monitor the healing and assist you with a dressing regime. All details will be discussed with you during your consultation, please contact the practice for further information.

Insole & Orthotic Prescriptions

Orthotics, also known as insoles are prescribed to control foot posture, movement and alter forces acting upon the foot. Within the clinic we use a range of insoles to suit every foot shape, for every activity level, on every budget. They are prescribed following a thorough assessment of your symptoms and examination of your foot and leg. Podiatrists are experts in the anatomy and function of the foot and prescribe insoles with the utmost care and consideration.

Leg Circulation Assessments

This service aims to promote early detection of changes to the blood supply in the lower limbs. The most common change to blood supply is caused by Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and even without symptoms this can increase your chance of a heart attack or stroke. With a non-invasive assessment of your circulation, our clinicians can assess your risk factors, explain the findings of the tests and help you to decide what to do next.
This assessment also benefits those with previously diagnosed arterial problems; monitoring for any changes.
If you have any concerns about your circulation, this diagnostic assessment can bring to light problems with blood flow.

Diabetic Check-ups

Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, it is essential to maintain good foot health to minimise adverse complications that are often associated with Diabetes.
The National Institue of Clincical Excellence suggests a foot check when you are first diagnosed and every year following that. If you are considered ‘increased’ or ‘high’ risk we would suggest more frequent foot checks. If you are unsure how often your feet should be checked by a medical professional ask your diabetic nurse or your local Podiatrist. If you have a problem with one or both of your feet see your Doctor or your Podiatrist as soon as you possibly can for advice and treatment.
Podiatrists can carry out your diabetic foot check, the aim is to detect early complications in the legs and feet i.e. sensation, circulation, changes to shape and skin. Our Podiatrist can help you to understand your risk factors and work with you to help keep you and your feet happy and healthy.
