Treatments at FootWise - the General Treatment

General treatments are the first appointment for first-time patients or a regular check-up appointment for FootWise patients. The general treatment is an overall examination and maintenance of the health of the patient's feet.

In this sort of consultation, John Burrie, your podiatrist, may do any of the following procedures:

  • Removal of callous and corn. John gently uses a scalpel to painlessly par away the corn or callous until a normal skin thickness is achieved.
  • Cutting and filing of nails.
  • Treatment of warts.The wart is pared away as much as possible with a scalpel, and acid is then applied to neutralize the growth. Alternatively, the wart can be frozen.
  • Diagnosis of fungal skin infections.
  • Treatment of blisters and minor foot problems.
  • John may talk withyou about your ingrown toenail, joint pain, flat feet or heel spurs, and advise you on the next course of action.
  • Footwearadvice, foot disorder prevention advice, and diabetic footcare advice.

To make an appointment, give us a call and tell us what time suits you.

Also available to all patients wishing to receive a general treatment is a home visit, where John travels to your home with his equipment, and treats you there.
