Foot and ankle surgery is a sub-specialty of Podiatry that deals with the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of disorders of the foot and ankle.
Our highly qualified and experienced Podiatrists routinely perform minor soft tissue surgical procedures such as removal of in-grown toenails and skin lesions, including treatment of verruca/plantar warts. These procedures are performed in-clinic using local anaesthetic, and are usually painless.
In cases where foot problems and deformities require more advanced surgical intervention The Foot and Ankle Clinic has access to Podiatric Surgeons, who are uniquely qualified and have completed extensive post graduate medical and surgical training to care for bone, joint, ligament, muscle and tendon pathology of the foot and ankle.
Examples of these include:
- Structural and congenital deformities, including bunions, hammertoes
- Soft tissue problems
- Nerve entrapments
- Degenerative arthrosis of the joints of the foot and ankle
- Trauma related injuries including fracture, dislocation and post traumatic arthritis
