If you have foot problems such as callus, corns, in growing or thickened nails, general aches and pains such heel pain, arch pain or any other foot complaint, a Podiatry treatment could help to get you pain free.
First Appointment- If I haven't seen you before I will book your first appointment allowing time to take notes, carry out a full assessment (including checking your pulses and the sensation in your feet), discuss your treatment plan and then to carry out the treatment.
Basic Nail Cut- This appointment is for those who simply need a nail cut and nothing else.
Routine Podiatry- This is for anything more than a nail cut. This includes ingrown nails, callous, corns etc. This is the most popular appointment as it allows for a more thorough treatment.
Toe Nail Removal
In growing toe nails can cause a lot of pain and ongoing infection. Sometimes the best option is to have them totally or partially removed. Orkney Podiatry has paired up with Debbie Irvine (Podiatrist) to offer toe nail removal procedures. You will require an initial visit to assess your toe and if it is decided that the best course of treatment is removal, we will book you in as soon as possible to have the prodecure done. Your toe will be numbed using local anaesthetic and the nail removed. We use phenol on the nail bed which helps to prevent regrowth and reduces bleeding and pain after the procedure. You will require follow up treatments to ensure that your wound is healing properly. Please contact me for further information and with any questions you may have.
This treatment is provided as a package pf care which includes:
- The nail removal procedure (performed by myself and another Podiatrist)
- Dressing package for the first week
- Follow up appointment 3-4 days after your procecdure
- Follow up appointment around 10 days after your procedure
