    Podiatrist Skin Debridement

    Corns & Callus Removal 

    Corns & Calluses are often due to abnormally high pressure in certain areas. A podiatrist can safely and painlessly remove these issues with painless lesion debridement. We also aim to look at the causes resulting in these types of lesions and addressing them to offer a permanent solution to these annoying complaints. Generally, the root cause of these complaints is due to abnormally high-pressure in certain areas of the foot, by reducing stress and offloading regions with certain devices and appliances we can significantly reduce the burden of painful corns & callous.

    Podiatrist Ingrown Toenail

    Ingrown Nails

    Ingrowing nails can be a major cause of pain and distress for people. Podiatrists are the best-placed professionals to effectively resolve your symptoms. Usually, one consultation is needed to address an ingrowing nail. We also offer minor nail surgery procedures to permanently resolve longstanding nail issues.

    It’s easy to underestimate the role our feet play in our health and daily lives but when people start to realise just how much we use them. It is estimated they will carry us over 130,000 Kilometres over our lifetime. It’s not hard to see why they are one of the most important parts of the body.
