What happens during my Initial Assessment?

During your initial assessment your previous medical history and any prescription medication that you are taking will be discussed. There will be some checks on blood and nerve supply to your feet.

During the consultation the Podiatrist will discuss your problem with you as well as examine and diagnose the issue.

If minor surgery is recommended, the procedure will be fully explained to you and you will have an opportunity to ask any questions. You will be given as much time as you need to consider any proposed procedure.

Having a minor procedure at the clinic is no different to having a minor procedure in hospital.

On the day of the procedure, a pre-surgical Assessment and complete the relevant Consent forms. In addition, we can supply analgesia and antibiotics if required.
