Podiatry involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of any problem relating to the foot whether it is a fungal nail infection, corn or a biomechanical abnormality.
Many patients will need regular appointments to maintain pain free feet and this may involve regular nail cutting, the removal of corns and callous, the provision of insoles and foot health education.
Diabetics are at risk from developing foot problems and the Podiatry Team at Hawley Health Centres provides a regular diabetic foot check to try and prevent future problems.
Podiatrists also carry out surgery on in growing toenails and biomechanical assessments to treat postural problems within the foot.
It is the practice philosophy to promote foot health at all times. The team aims to provide a high standard of treatment in a friendly and relaxed environment. Over the years, the Podiatry Team has developed experience in all aspects of podiatric care, but in certain cases, patients may be referred to colleagues with specialist knowledge.
Services provided: routine treatment, toenail surgery, Doppler vascular assessment, and biomechanical assessment, custom made insoles and orthotics, diabetic foot assessments.
For patients who are housebound or have difficulty in getting to the Hawley Health Centre, a home-visit service is provided.
