Podiatric Surgery

Our specialist surgical team treat all foot problems including Hallux Valgus (Bunion Surgery) , Hammer, Mallet and Claw Toes and Morton’s Neuroma.

Podiatric Surgery is the surgical treatment of the foot and its associated structures. It is usually undertaken as a day case procedure and often but not always under local anaesthetic.

Whilst many foot problems respond to non-surgical treatment, some are best treated by podiatric surgery. This is particularly effective for persistently painful conditions or where the foot is being affected by deformity.

Common problems include hallux valgus (bunion surgery), hammer, mallet and claw toes, and neuromas (enlarged nerves).

If you would like to be seen by our team please see your GP for a referral. This service is currently available at the locations shown below.
