Podiatry can be performed in the comfort of your own home as well as at our clinic. If you find yourself unable to get out, or if you would simply prefer to be treated at home, we can help. We pride ourselves on delivering the same quality of care regardless of where we work.
Who Can Benefit from a Podiatry House Call?
Anyone who requires podiatry can request to have a house call for treatment. However, there are some types of patients who would benefit from at-home podiatry care more than others. These include:
Patients with restricted mobility
Patients with restricted or no access to transport
Patients who have dependents to care for
What to Expect from your Podiatry House Call
A typical podiatry house call lasts between 30 and 60 minutes depending on your individual needs. During this time, a full assessment of your feet and nails will be undertaken to determine what care you require. We may need to ask questions about your medical history, or about specific problems that you have been experiencing. We may also ask about any medication that you currently take and if you have tried any treatments to relieve your condition.
Rest assured that your podiatrist will provide all of their own, sterile equipment for your home visit and to perform any treatments that are required.
Many conditions, such as ingrowing toenails and bunions can be diagnosed simply by examining your feet. Where possible, straightforward foot and nail problems will be treated during the visit, although in some cases, it may be necessary to schedule a separate house call. If your condition requires more advanced treatment or you are in significant pain, it may be necessary for your podiatrist to schedule you an in-office appointment.
Your podiatrist will also give you appropriate advice for performing at-home care in between your podiatry appointments.

Diabetic foot injuries
