Department of Foot Health - Bassetlaw

Our podiatrists work to improve patients' mobility, independence and quality of life. They help to prevent and treat a wide range of problems with the feet, ankles and lower limbs.

Problems can range from the removal of corns and callous to surgery on ingrowing toenails. We also provide care for people with chronic foot problems caused by diseases such as diabetes and arthritis.

Our service covers:

• high risk patient management
• sports injuries and biomechanics
• nail surgery
• foot health education
• core podiatry

We aim to educate people about their foot health. Where we can we include relatives, carers and other health professionals.

We provide this service to people of all ages.
