Built in 2008, our purpose-built surgery is equipped with some of the latest equipment and instruments to effectively deal with all the common foot health presentations.
Diabetic Patient Management
Early diagnosis and ongoing management of Diabetes is important role of the practice. We work closely with the local medical services as part of the wider Diabetes Managment Team for the patient.
The following are the most common conditions that are presented to us for treatment.
Ingrowing nails can be very painful and if left untreated can result in an infection developing.
Corns develop at points of extreme pressure. Pressure applied to the corn can cause severe pain.
Nails can become fungally infected, which can result in discolouration and brittleness.
Verrucae are caused by a viral infection and can spread with ease in warm and moist conditions.
Hard Skin can become very thick and yellow-ish in colour. It can also be painful to walk on.
The nail can become mishapen and dig into the surrounding skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Foot Health Practitioner?
In 2003, State Registered and Private Chiropodists were merged under the Health Professions Council and the title “Chiropodist” became protected. From that date, undertaking and qualifying the same training resulted in becoming a Foot Health Practitioner. My training through the SMAE Institute afforded me the same knowledge of foot conditions as a Chiropodist, treating many of the common presentations, but prevents me from being able to state that I perform Chiropody or that I am a Chiropodist. When previously running a joint practice with Sarah Bowyer, the treatment of patients by both of us was the same. The hundreds of current, satisfied patients that use myself for their footcare needs, I think speaks for itself.
This is the personal, but honest view of the owner only.
