Corns, Callus & Cracked Heels
Podiatrists are skilled in using a scalpel to remove hard skin or corns. We look at foot structure, footwear, medical history & lifestyle
to establish the cause of the problem and help prevent recurrence. Treatment includes footcare advice and padding/insoles if necessary. All treatments finish with the application of a high-quality foot cream.
We understand how painful this condition can be and aim to help you resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
Most of the time we can treat the problem at the 1st appointment and provide advice to prevent it recurring. If the problem is ongoing, we offer nail surgery to remove a section of the nail under local anaesthetic for a more permanent solution.
Fungal nails & athletes foot
Fungal nails can be unsightly and embarrassing. They are often spread to the nail from a fungal infection of the skin such as athletes foot. We can take a nail sample to diagnose the condition and offer advice on the most appropriate treatment.
No more embarrassing feet! We offer nail reconstruction using the Wilde Pedique method. This involves rebuilding or improving the nail appearance using a light cured, flexible resin for a natural look. The resin is designed specifically for toenails and lasts on average 6 weeks minimum. The nail can be cut & filed like a normal nail.
Diabetic foot care
Anna worked for 4 years in a specialist Diabetes nursing team so understands the huge impact this condition has on people’s lives. We offer routine foot care and advice for people with diabetes and diabetic foot screening which includes assessment of skin, nails, circulation and nerve sensation.
We can provide routine foot & nail care, footwear advice and insoles to improve comfort & prevent pressure areas caused by changes in the shape of the foot. Annual foot checks for people with rheumatoid arthritis include assessing the skin condition, joint function, circulation & sensation to the feet.
A verruca is a type of wart caused by the Human Papilloma Virus which infects surface skin cells. Treatment is not always necessary but if pain or function is affected, we debride overlying hard skin and offer treatment advice. For troublesome verruca’s in adults we provide Falknor's Needling, which can improve the body’s immune response to the virus.
