Podiatric Surgery

Podiatric Surgery

Podiatric Surgery is the surgical treatment of the foot and its associated structures. It is carried out by a Podiatric Surgeon, usually as a day case procedure and often under local anaesthetic.  If you think you need foot surgery, this can usually be arranged under the care of the NHS, you will in most cases need to be referred by your GP or you can contact your local NHS podiatry unit for advice.
