First Consultation (£45) :
This appointment is usually around 1 hour which includes enough time to take all medical history and perform a Neurovascular assesmment. This appointment will also include advice and treatment of the area/problem.
Routine Appointment (£45) :
This routine appointment usually takes place every 6-8 weeks. Each pair of feet are different so this appointment will include different treatments for each individual. Including toenail cutting and filing, hard skin and/or corn removal and verruca management.
Home Visits (£45):
I AM CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ON ANY NEW HOME VISITS 20-02-21!
I offer home visits on Monday-Friday around my clinic diary, if you can attend clinic please do as it is clinically better for you to be seen where we have better facilities, diagnostic aids and lighting to assess you.
If you struggle to get out of the house due to poor health or disabilities a home visit would be beneficial.
Swift Microwave Therapy (£120):
CUTTESLOWE CLINIC ONLY!
(£120 per treatment, 3 are usually recommended)
WHAT IS SWIFT?
Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
DOES IT HURT?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experiences. pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing swift liken it similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2-3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?
In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you taking normal daily activities.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment. Your podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you.
I can treat mild cases that do not require local anaesthetic. A blacks file will be used to reduce the nail edge along the side wall, along with a small portion of the nail removed if necessary.
If I find the nail is likely to require nail surgery under local anaesthetic I will either advise you to visit your GP (I will provide a headed letter with what treatment has been performed) for a referral to the NHS or Mrs Humble-Thomas also privately offers this service in clinic.
Most cases however are mild and easily treated. I will also provide advice of how to avoid the toenail ingrowing again.
Although verrucae are harmless, when they form on a weight bearing area of the foot they are likely to be painful. Verrucae are caused by the HPV virus. Their classic appearance is cauliflower like, often containing small black dots which are small blood vessels on the surface of the skin.
They vary in size and number. Sometimes a verruca can spread quickly into a cluster of many tiny verrucae. Evidence has shown that, in many cases, verruccae will disappear of their own accord within two years. Therefore, if it is painless, often no treatment is required.
For painful, unsightly verrucae, or ones which are spreading, you may wish to seek treatment. I offer Swift microwave therapy, Silver nitrate, Verutop.
From experience we have found that each patient and each verrucca requires a different approach.
We have many different colours of both Gel Polish and Nail Polish. This is a treatment that can be added to a foot health appointment or can be booked on its own.
Nail polish- £12
Gel Polish- £20
Ottoform/Bland Rose silicone toe props:
Both Ottoform and Bland rose are available for toe props to be custom made. Ottoform is a lot harder so usually Bland rose is used. They can be made into any shape or size to offload pressure from a certain area. This pressure is usually in-between the toes or underneath the toes causing discomfort or corns which then become painful.
Please see pictures below.
Nail Reconstruction (£30):
Nail reconstruction is both a cosmetic and medical procedure.
The gel is layered directly onto the nail bed and onto any remaining/present nail so that a brand new nail is created or on top of damaged and misshapen nails so that the visual appearance is more aesthetic.
The reconstruction is not permanent and usually lasts between 6-8 weeks, however this does vary person to person and how much natural nail is left. The gel used is flexible to allow the nail to move with natural movements of the toe, the gel also has anti fungal properties ,meaning that the fungal nails affected are being treated whilst the nail is worn. the nail reconstructed will not have any damage to it nor will the reconstruction restrict the growth of the natural nail
Discount if more than one nail is reconstructed.
Working along side Mrs Humble-Thomas :
I am very privileged to be able to work alongside Mrs Humble-Thomas who qualified at the London foot hospital over 30 years ago. She is a very well known podiatrist around Oxfordshire due to her high standard of care and treatments. Please be assured that anything out of my working remit will be passed on to Mrs Humble-Thomas for advise and a further treatment plan.
