Podiatry

Our podiatrists can treat many conditions affecting your feet and give advice on how to manage them.

Foot clinic appointment and treatment costs for podiatry services 

We offer subsidised fees for Pension and Health Care Card holders. Rebates are also available with Medicare bulk billing and private health insurance. The cost of the service depends on your situation and we will help you access funding that you may be eligible for. We are registered providers for My Aged Care (MAC) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

We can also help to include podiatry in your MAC package or NDIS service agreement.

We can provide comprehensive foot care including:

 Skin and nail problems, including corns and callous treatment

Making sure your skin and nails are comfortable and healthy is vital to maintaining healthy feet. You can maintain optimum foot health by attending regular appointments with one of our podiatrists.

We can provide you with and teach you or your carer how to use a tailored kit to keep your feet in great shape between appointments.

Toe deformities/Bunions

We can customise a plan to help reduce your pain and manage these conditions.

Diabetes foot assessments

People with diabetes are more prone to developing foot problems and therefore need to take extra care with their feet. Our podiatrists are trained in treating foot problems resulting from Diabetes.

It is recommended that all people with diabetes have their feet checked every year using a proper diabetic foot assessment process.

Wound management

If left untreated, wounds can become worse and lead to a serious problem. We will help direct you in the best way to treat and manage your wound.

Ingrown nails

Don’t let your nail problems drag on. Our experienced team can help treat your ingrown nails, including conservative and surgical options.

Foot pain

If you are experiencing foot pain of any degree, don’t suffer in silence. Come and see us for an assessment and we will work together to put tailored management in place.

Orthotics

Foot orthoses (orthotics) are shoe inserts designed to support your feet and make sure all the structures in your foot are in a good position.  By doing this they help to improve the function of the foot and in many cases also treat or relieve pain.

There are different types of foot orthotics available.  As qualified podiatrists, we are able to assess and work with you to ensure you have the best orthotic for your problem and your budget.

Children’s feet

We understand that taking your children to the podiatrist may be a new experience. You can trust us to safely assess your child’s feet. Common reasons you may bring your child in to see us include: unusual walking patterns, frequent tripping, curly toes, warts and ingrown nails.

Footwear assessments – Are you wearing the right shoes for what you want to do?

Having a podiatrist assess your feet and walking or running patterns is one of the best ways to ensure your shoe choice provides the best support, comfort and durability required for daily wear or your chosen activity.

Do I need a referral to see a podiatrist?

No referral is required. However, we do accept referrals from GPs, specialists, other health professionals, NDIS providers, My Aged Care and Aged Care Packages.
