At South Dublin Podiatry we are committed to providing foot care for the whole family, from toddlers to seniors. Whether it is a sore corn, fallen arch or a simple concern, we are here to help.
General Foot Care (€50)
During this appointment your foot will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution from toenails to heels. We will trim and file your nails, removing any ingrown sides, and follow with full debridement of hard skin and any corns. The superficial skin will be sanded via a drill to ensure a smooth finish and any verruca will be treated, if present. At the end we will apply a deeply moisturising cream, leaving your feet light and fresh.
Verruca Follow Up (From €30)
Verrucae can take some time to clear up and so we would recommend a consistent treatment regimen. The treatment will largely depend on your age and symptoms. At South Dublin Podiatry, our two main treatment options include cryotherapy and treatment with salicylic acid, both of which have been proven to be safe and effective ways to treat plantar warts.
Biomechanical Assessment (€60)
Gait assessment or a biomechanical assessment involves the podiatrist examining your foot posture, major joints in your legs and feet and assessing the way you walk. This appointment is particularly useful if you experience any kind of foot or ankle pain and require an exercise program or orthotics.
Nail Bracing (€80)
We are delighted to introduce CombiPed, ‘The Intelligent Adhesive – Wire Brace’. This revolutionary technique is particularly effective for ingrown and involuted nails and does not involve any surgical intervention. Application of the nail brace will take approx 30 min. You will be asked to attend a follow up one week after the procedure. Re-application may be necessary 4 – 8 weeks later depending on the severity of the condition.
Wound Care/ Re-Dressing (€30)
Foot ulcers or wounds may require regular treatment and redressing. At South Dublin Podiatry we are delighted to offer specialised wound care services including assessment of the lower limb circulation, wound debridement, offloading and redressing.
Home Visits (€60)
Home visits are available for routine skin and nail treatments for the house bound or elderly patients. These treatments are ideal for patients with severe mobility issues. Please note we only attend home visits to patients who live in a close vicinity of the practice. We also travel to the Tallaght hospital.
