Podiatric surgery is a specialist field of practice within the podiatry profession. Our Consultant led Podiatric Surgery department offers a range of diagnostic services and both conservative and surgical treatments for foot and ankle conditions. We work closely with colleagues in podiatry as well as doctors and other healthcare professions to ensure patients receive a comprehensive treatment package.  The majority of our elective surgical procedures offered can be carried out under local and regional anaesthesia, which means that you’ll experience a much quicker recovery and be home sooner. We also offer IV sedation for those who may require this service. Common conditions that we treat include:

  • Bunions
  • Osteoarthritis in the foot
  • Hammer toes
  • Forefoot pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Mortons Neuroma
  • Flat feet
  • Lumps, Bumps and soft tissue masses
  • Tendon problems
  • Infected ingrown Toenails
  • Diabetic foot deformity
  • Injection therapy
  • Foreign body retrieval e.g. glass in foot
