Because I am a surgeon doesn’t mean I will recommend surgery! I consider all non-surgical solutions first. However, since I am an Associate Professor of Podiatric Medicine & Surgery at University of Western Australian, then I will have access to the best resources to help you if surgery is needed.
Foot orthoses are a way of balancing the foot, lower leg, knees, hips and back. There are many conditions where orthoses may help. The key to success is the skill of the health practitioner. I have many years experience as a senior podiatrist within Perth Hospitals, private practice, and at UWA, where I teach as an Associate Professor. Would you trust your feet to anyone else?
Some people require more than a simple orthotic. I am perhaps the only podiatrist in Perth who can provide custom footwear along with your orthotic. I can have your footwear and orthoses made together to ensure they fit and give you maximum support. Not everyone will need this service, but those who have serious foot and ankle problems will appreciate my expertise!
This is a terrible infection that is hard to treat. Many pharmacy products will waste time and money. I have licence to use class 4 lasers and provide laser treatment of nails. The laser I use is superior to many on the market. The laser causes light and heat that penetrates some distance into the nail killing fungal elements in a safe way. If you really want to see of your unsightly nails fixed in the fastest way possible then see me. I can also prescribe powerful antifungal medications. Not all podiatrists can!
Not many podiatrists and podiatric surgeons can prescribe medications and have access to the full range of medications allowed by podiatrists. I do. So why waste time and money with an inferior service?
Are off the shelf footwear not doing the job? If you need that extra support and stability I can make fully custom footwear containing a custom moulded insole. Why wear unsightly ankle support?
