Podiatrist, HCPC Registered
I am passionate about wellbeing; and, being a Podiatrist achieve this from the toes up. All cases have at least one challenging aspect. The most rewarding part of my profession is relieving pain – often immediately. The follow up action then centres around establishing and where possible, eliminating the cause of the initial presenting problem. I particularly enjoy helping those with Diabetes and Rheumatoid Arthritis to stay healthy and mobile. When people walk well, they feel well!
I qualified with initially with a Diploma in Chiropody and then in 2007 graduated from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh with a BSc in Podiatry. I have worked in full time private practice since 2002. I am fully engaged in a robust programme of Continuing Professional Development, write articles and lecture to peers on podiatry related subjects to stay abreast of progress in the profession.
To achieve my objective of promoting foot health wellbeing, I use a wide variety of treatments from advice and education to surgery. These include cryotherapy, acupuncture, padding and strapping, sharp debridement and orthotics/insoles
In my spare time, I enjoy fly fishing and am a keen naturalist, walking miles to appreciate all that the natural world has to offer.
