Nail Surgery – ingrowing or painful thick nails

A common condition that I see which can be resolved with surgery.

Ingrowing or painful nails have a number of causes; shape of the nail, ill fitting shoes or trauma are some of the reasons that the condition arises.

A brief assessment is performed and anaesthetic is used to extract the problem nail. Post surgery, the toe must be kept clean and a dressing applied daily.

Running Injuries

Injuries are often caused by other underlying problems.

Many of you may have taken up running recently or increased your running and could now be experiencing pain or injury.

As Podiatrists, we look at the whole of the lower limb so rather than just treating the painful area, we delve deeper to find the cause so that the issue has less chance to reoccur.

During the current situation, it is not advisable to visit a clinic. However, a working diagnosis and treatment plan can be derived from a through history and tele-health consultation.

Why not book a biomechanics consultation with me online? I will send you a consultation form to complete which will save time and allow me to have a clearer overview of the problem before the consultation where I can concentrate on the key areas and issues that you are having.



Check their Feet #toebusiness18

Many elderly clients that I see have very overgrown toenails

this is because they can’t deal with them and no one really sees their feet

Unfortunately, not many people like dealing with feet either

I often get calls from shocked relatives who have eventually seen the feet of their aging relative and they feel very upset that the feet are in this condition.



Portsmouth – home visits

If you have received one of my cards through your door, you will receive a £5 discount off a home visit appointment.

This time of year many clients benefit from the home visiting service I offer within Portsmouth.

If you find that the inclement weather and bus journeys are too much, why not book a home visit?

I offer all the treatments that you can have within a clinic but at home. I can deal with thick nails, ingrowing nails as well as corns and hard skin.

All advice is free and I have a small selection of products at reasonable prices if you require them.

I am also qualified to prescribe antibiotics if you have any infections in your foot and all dressings at the time of appointment are supplied free of charge.

For some people, coming to my home is convenient.
