Welcome to Elizabeth A Smith - Registered Podiatrist/Chiropodist, Guildford, Surrey
Most of us give our feet very little thought during our early life, least of all in our teens when extreme fashion can dictate our footwear.
Painful though it might be, wearing certain footwear styles, we all want to be in step with the latest trends. Haven't we all been young once!
This can, however, give rise to problems in later life affecting our posture, knee and hip joints and essentially our feet.
The most common conditions are created by the thickening of soft tissue caused by friction and pressure depending on where they are located on the foot.
Treatment is usually straightforward and painless with minor surgical procedures and dressed accordingly. Advice on suitable footwear, with a possible change during treatment of the condition, is important contributor to a speedy recovery.
Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful, especially when left untreated and hyper granulation forms. They are generally a result of poor care and trimming. However, there are some predisposing factors that can be the cause.
A Health Professions Registered (HPC) Podiatrist/Chiropodist, Elizabeth Smith trained at The London Foot Hospital and has been practising for over 25 years.
Apart from her domiciliary services, Elizabeth has developed a specialised treatment at The Whiteley Clinic, using laser for the removal of verrucas.
Treatments for verrucas are varied and depend on the site of the infection, age of the patient and whether they are multiple or singular.
Laser treatment or cryotherapy is the most commonly used methods for effective and fast treatment. However, the use of drugs can be a little less harsh, but equally effective.
Treatment of all of these conditions by your chiropodist, with modern surgical equipment, will make for a positive experience.
Visiting a chiropodist brings constant relief to patients with chronic and acute conditions. Early diagnosis can prevent more serious problems developing especially with diabetics.
Having a podiatry/chiropody surgery within a vascular clinic provides the benefits of a complete interface of lower limb specialists working together giving an opportunity for speedy, seamless referrals if required.
Elizabeth Smith is a Domiciliary Podiatrist/Chiropodist and is willing to travel in the Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire border to see patients.
Most treatments can be carried out in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
However, we provide a full chiropody service at The Whiteley Clinic where, through our team approach with other medical and paramedical specialists, we can make sure that we provide the very best care for our patients.
