I have been qualified as a Chiropodist and Podiatrist for over 35 years and have been in practice full time since 1988.

I am  an expert in Podiatric Biomechanics (the science of body movement and  function in relation to the feet and legs) and the prescription of Bespoke Orthotics (arch supports). I have studied this subject extensively in my degree. Thus I have eased many patient’s leg, foot and back pains by prescribing bespoke orthotics which are made individually for each patient by a World Class Orthotics Laboratory in the UK. To do this I use a
3D iPad foot scanner which exactly captures the size and shape of the foot, making thousands of measurements to ensure the orthotics fit exactly.

I am an expert at treating verrucae (warts of the foot) and  I treat hundreds of verrucae successfully each year. I have studied this subject extensively, writing a 6000 word essay on their treatment in my degree.
I can use Cryotherapy and a range of other treatments.

I treat many ingrowing toenails each year. Either by conservatively removing problem splinters of nail, or by permanently removing ingrowing toenails under Local Anaesthetic using Nail Surgery techniques.

I treat many patients who have Diabetes.

I also treat many routine foot problems such as corns and calluses.
