DIABETIC ASSESSMENT/ANNUAL FOOT REVIEW
Diabetic clients can have an increased risk of infection and ulceration, and therefore it is advised to be seen by a Podiatrist annually at a minimum.
The Podiatrist will provide a diabetic foot assessment to monitor any loss of sensation and check the blood circulation in your feet. The condition of your skin and nails, and your foot structure and function will also be checked. Your footwear will also be assessed.
The Podiatrist will help you to look after your feet and reduce the risk of infection and ulceration. Documentation and a letter with results will be supplied for your GP (with your consent).
CHOICES OF ORTHOTICS RANGE FROM £35
INSOLES FROM £12
Specialist insoles can bring comfort and cushioning to your footwear. An orthotic is an in-shoe device which is designed to redistribute the body’s weight across the whole of the sole of the foot and therefore correct irregular walking patterns. The wearing of an orthotic is a commitment in same way glasses are worn to correct vision. They are effective in reducing pain and often reduce the amount of hard skin formation.
This exclusive Podiatry speciality, LCN Wilde-Pedique Toenail Reconstruction, is only undertaken in medical business premises and is now available at 63 Queensway.
We offer this treatment to men and women who suffer from unsightly toenails, maybe you have suffered foot trauma, or damaged your nails playing sport, or your nail may be misshapen from fungal infection?
We can create a bespoke, cosmetically reconstructed nail which will look natural and real. The treatment has an antimycotic ingredient which prevents nail infections and reduces spread of germs, so it can be used on fungal nails.
It is possible to also have anti-fungal nail treatment alongside the nail reconstruction process.
NAIL SURGERY (PARTIAL/TOTAL NAIL AVULSION)
Nail surgery is usually performed for ingrown toenails, if conservative measures have not succeeded in resolving this problem. It provides alleviation of pain from an ingrowing or deformed nail, you will feel more comfortable when wearing shoes, it prevents infection associated with ingrowing toenails (no need for antibiotics anymore).
There are alternate treatments to nail surgery which are conservative and available as a regular Nail Care and Maintenance appointment.
Nail surgery cost is from £400 and includes post-operative dressing appointments and the dressing pack.
