Medical Footcare Treatment

Initial Assessment & Treatment

The initial appointment includes a complete medical history, nursing assessments, footwear inspections (if required), nursing diagnosis and personalized plan of care. The initial appointment also includes the first treatment for your feet (antimicrobial foot soak, medical footcare treatment, diabetic footcare, ingrown toenail care, thick toenails, corns and callus removal etc.). The treatment will end with a light massage and a comforting warm towel. The nurse will treat anything she is able to in the time allotted for the appointment.

Follow Up Medical Footcare Treatment

At your initial assessment, we recommend a care plan for your specific foot problems (typically every 6-8 weeks to keep your feet healthy and free from complications).  At your follow up treatment, any care required and able to be performed in the time allotted will be completed.

Fingernail Trim & File – Available for extra cost only in addition to a footcare treatment

*Please note – our nurses do not apply polish. Foot soak is only provided in home if the patient provides their own basin/supplies (for infection control)

Onyfix ingrown Toenail Bracing

 A revolutionary system to relieve and correct chronic ingrown nails. Non-invasive, pain free, and safe for even the highest risk population. Book an assessment today to learn if Onyfix would be a good option for you.

Laser Treatment for Plantar Warts

The FOX Laser is a revolutionary podiatry device that offers a modern alternative to traditional invasive methods. We are the only clinic in the area providing this amazingly successful treatment!

Traditional wart treatments are typically painful, require down time, and weeks upon weeks of treatment. The FOX laser treatment can often rid of warts within only a few treatments!

Laser treatment is a non-invasive technique that does not damage adjacent skin, is safe, and requires no downtime after treatment.

Pulsed laser radiation targets the blood vessels sustaining the wart. Upon intense laser irradiation, a wart should dry out and its entire capillary chains fully coagulated.

Coagulation is a non-ablative treatment, achieved by applying focused laser radiation that dry out the wart by coagulating its capillaries. Laser radiation eradicates the HPV virus since laser radiation causes intense heat at a sub dermis level.

*Results will vary from person to person as everyone reacts differently to all treatments.*
