Minor surgery, for example to correct an ingrown nail or remove painful skin lesions is done in the office. Hate needles? Ask about pre injection preparation so that you won't feel the needle. Anesthetic blocks, and therapeutic injections are mostly done with ultrasound guidance which lessens discomfort by improving needle placement.

Diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. An accurate history and physical examination is the first step and often provides the necessary clues. When needed our modern technology enables us to go beyond this and provide:
•   Computerized "in shoe" pressure measurement to examine plantar forces
•   High resolution diagnostic ultrasound to examine for defects inside your foot or accurately place corticosteroids and other injectible substances precisely where they will work best whilst significantly lessening the risk of adverse effects.
•   Doppler ultrasound to examine your blood supply
•   Computerised video gait analysis to examine your motion
•   Infra red digital skin temperature scanning to monitor injured and diseased sites
•   Cryosurgical and electro-surgical equipment to remove painful skin lesions
Most important a well trained ear to listen to what you are most concerned about and an interest to explain to you what needs to be done and why it is important.
