Routine chiropody

General foot and nail care to improve comfort and reduce any aches or pains. This routine service is ideal for patients that struggle to look after their own footcare because of poor eyesight, difficulty bending, arthritis, or any other health conditions. We also regularly provide treatments for patients who are on their feet a lot or have recurring foot problems.

The Routine Chiropody service includes professional nail cutting and reduction, hard skin removal, and corn and callus removal. All treatments are finished off with a relaxing foot massage and personalised footcare advice.

Nail surgery 

A minor surgical procedure to treat and remove painful toenails with use of local anaesthetic. Ingrowing and damaged toenails can be very painful, prone to infection, and interfere with walking and standing.

We will examine your nail issues and identify the best surgical treatment, whether it requires a simple adjustment or local anaesthetic. After the treatment, you will be advised on healthy nail care and ingrowing nail prevention.

Fungal nail treatment

Effective fungal nail treatment and prevention. We use the Lacuna Method, which targets the infection at its source, preventing it from spreading and helping the damaged nail regrow.

We will make micro holes in the nail plate with a small micro burr drill, so the Lamisil anti-fungal spray can penetrate the nail plate and reach the nail bed. The patient will then apply the same fungicidal spray daily at home, and come back to the clinic for a 6-8 week review with to check the infection has cleared and the nail is healing.

VERRUCA TREATMENT

Verrucae can be completely painless or very painful and are sometimes mistaken for corns. Our therapy includes proper diagnosis, and treatment which is evidenced based. As a verruca is caused by the wart virus they can often disappear on their own.
