In the media

Electro-surgery - Daily Mail article - Julian Head


“Podiatry has changed dramatically in the last 10 years...Podiatrists often perform minor surgery, issue antibiotics, give steroid injections, prescribe custom insoles (orthotics), use ultrasound scanners and walk-on pressure measurement scanners in their clinics in addition to traditional podiatry treatments such as corn removal and verruca treatments”
