Our Foot Surgery department uses advanced corrective surgery techniques to stabilise and reposition many different types of foot deformities. A thorough gait investigation is performed prior to surgery in order to establish the cause of deformities and to assess the effect that surgery may have on the foot.
We treat Nail Fungus with a state of the art Fotana advanced medical laser. Our staff have been trained in Fontana's ClearSteps ™ treatment method which has been in use in the US for a number of years, and is now becoming more readily available in the EU.
Our Gait Laboratory was one of the first to be created in the UK. It is used to assess how people move. Our Gait analysis equipment measures pressure under the foot, revealing symmetry or asymmetry of movement and the time which each foot part spends touching the ground. Our slow motion gait analysis allows us to examine all body parts. Each part can be examined from the side, front rear.
The Gait Laboratory assesses a wide range of people, with a large diversity of problems. The department sees children with growing pains or walking anomalies. Adolescent children often attend with heel and knee pains. Many athletes do not use their bodies efficiently due to asymmetry and have repetitive injuries. A detailed gait analysis can lead to an improvement in gait though a variety of treatments. Changes brought about by treatment resolve pains and can prevent their recurrence.
Our Podiatrists are trained to provide expert care for foot deformities. They diagnose and provide non-surgical care for many foot and limb problems, deformities and pathologies. Some people are not suitable for surgery due to poor health, or cannot have surgery because they cannot take time from work to recover from surgery. Fitter Feet Podiatrists are experts in relieving foot pain without surgery where possible.
