Are the podiatrists qualified?
All of our Podiatrists have completed a four year Bachelor of Podiatry Degree and are all equally qualified to treat and manage your problem. We are committed to furthering our education at every opportunity by regularly attending seminars, conferences and courses.

As a clinic we pride ourselves on the high quality and range of our in-house training that we deliver on a regular basis. Podiatrists attending outside courses are required to share their learning with the rest of the team. This way we keep up to date with the latest treatments for our patients and can help them get back to a full and active life.
Can you help with ingrowing toenails?
Ingrown toenails are a common toenail problem. They can be caused by poor nail cutting technique, curved nail edges, pressure from footwear or repeated trauma to the feet and toes.

The caring team at Walk On Podiatry will provide you with a range of conservative or bolder options depending on the severity of your ingrown nail condition. Regular ongoing treatment can often help to reduce painful ingrown nails but there are also options to permanently remove this section of nail.

Our Podiatrists are able to discuss and perform the surgical removal of the affected part of the nail under local anaesthetic. They will also provide you with specific advice before and after the surgery to ensure you get back to enjoying the activities you love.
Do you take private health cards?
