Podiatric Surgery is assessment and surgery for complex foot disorders. Treatment is carried out by podiatric surgeons, who are specialists in foot surgery. All surgery at Park House Health and Social Care Centre is performed under local anaesthesia.
Most of our work is planned, non-emergency surgery.
We have three experienced podiatric surgeons in our team: Lancel Hogg, Anthony Maher and James Harmer.
