Routine Follow up Appointments
- Corn and callus removal. Nail cutting and reduction of thickened nails. Treatment for ingrowing toenails. 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 and prevent/treat any related problems The podiatrist will observe and test the range of movements in the joints and 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 and then more permanent orthotics may be 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 toenails 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 and 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 and suitability for the procedure. The actual procedure takes around an hour in total and several follow up appointments over a few weeks may be required 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 £240.00 and include follow up re-dressing appointments.
Prescription Insoles / Orthotics
- We stock a variety of precasted / off the shelf insoles and orthotics and prescribe according to individual need. Where possible we use heat mouldable devices to ensure individualised fit / correction.
