Podiatry surgery

What do we do

The podiatry department specialises in foot and ankle surgery, lower limb sports injuries and the management of the at-risk diabetic foot. By providing this specialist service we treat common and complex problems that can affect the lower limbs. Our excellent hospital diagnostic facilities, clinical skills and experience as a team enables us to diagnose and educate our patients, enabling them to be involved in decisions about their care, facilitating their treatment and improving outcomes.

Most foot and ankle operations are carried out on as day cases, either under local, regional or general anaesthetic.
