Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower leg.

Podiatry services provide care to patients defined as high and medium risk to prevent or reduce hospital admission and possible surgical intervention, to maintain mobility, improve the quality of life and promote independence and the ability to self care.

We treat acute foot lesions and supply in-shoe devices to relieve pain and increase mobility.

We also hold biomechanical assessment clinics to assist in the evaluation and short-term treatment of musculoskeletal imbalance, to enhance mobility, reduce pain and limit potential future complications.

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower leg.

The team at the Oak Tree Centre, Huntingdon, also provide therapeutic laser clinics to give pain relief to increase mobility.

Our nail surgery service is provided at The Oak Tree Centre, Healthy Living Centre in Peterborough, Doddington Hospital in March, and Chesterton Medical Centre in Cambridge, enabling more patients to access the service and be treated near their homes. The service treats in-growing toenails, thickened or distorted nails, long-standing fungal nail infections and traumatised and infected toes. Surgery is performed under a local anaesthetic by the podiatric practitioner and patients will have their initial assessment and post-operative appointments at their local clinic, co-ordinated by the podiatry team.

The service also offers foot surgery at the Oaktree Health Centre using local anaesthetic. The surgery unit is a consultant-led department providing a range of foot surgery in a designated operating suite.
