Routine Follow up Appointments
- Corn and callus removal Nail cutting and reduction of thickened nails Treatment for ingrowing nails Annual foothealth screening for diabetics and other high risk groups Footcare and footwear advice.
- This involves looking at the way the foot and ankle function. Abnormal foot mechanics can cause problems not only in the foot but also in the knees hips & back. Orthotics are inserts used inside the shoe to stabilise the foot & so prevent/treat any related problems The podiatrist will observe & test the range of movements in the joints & perhaps look at the way you walk, stand etc, in order to reach a diagnosis. In the first instance temporary insoles are often used to determine the best type of orthotic to use & then more permanent orthotics maybe prescribed. This will be agreed with you as the type of footwear worn will affect the type of orthotic chosen. We use pre-casted orthotics that are heat moulded to your foot.
- If necessary, ingrowing nails can be corrected by a simple surgical procedure called ‘partial nail avulsion’. This is where a section of the nail is removed under local anaesthetic & a chemical used to destroy that part of the nail bed so that the section of nail does not re-grow. Patients will usually need an assessment first to check medical history, circulation & suitability for the procedure. The actual procedure takes around an hour in total & the toe usually needs several follow up appointments over a few weeks to make sure it is healing. Patients will be given instructions on self care in between re- dressing appointments. Prices for nail surgery start at £220.00 and include follow up re-dressing appointments.
