About us

Our service specialises in assessing and treating problems of the lower limb particularly of the foot and ankle. Podiatrists aim to maintain and promote good foot health within the population of Islington and Haringey in order to help sustain mobility, independence and reduce pain.
 
We can assess a patientís foot problem and provide them with treatment and self-care advice as appropriate to their individual needs. Our service strives to support patients to self-manage their foot problems in order to improve and increase control over their foot health.
 
What does the service do?
Islington and Haringey are very diverse boroughs and we understand that different groups of people need different types of care. Our service therefore offers an extensive range of treatments including:
 
Treatment of foot pain
Podiatrists can help diagnose foot pain by assessing a patientís foot structure, gait analysis and alleviate pain through the prescription of orthotics or innersoles.
 
Treatment of the high-risk foot
Podiatrists play an important role in caring for patients that are at risk of foot problems. These patients can be at risk of foot ulcers, infection and possible amputation and therefore take priority over our lower risk patients. Many conditions can put a person at high risk including diabetes, circulation problems and rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Treatment of skin and nail conditions of the foot
Our service only provides this service to those patients with both a medical and podiatric clinical need.
 
Toenail surgery
Some persistent nail conditions, e.g. ingrown toenails, can be permanently resolved through a minor surgical procedure carried out under local anaesthetic.
 
Injection Therapy
Specially trained podiatrists can administer anti-inflammatory injections into the foot to resolve painful conditions, where conventional treatments have failed.
