At Spire Claremont Hospital, we offer diagnosis and specialist treatment of foot and lower limb-related disorders.
Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders, many of which are caused by general health disorders.

Our podiatry service is for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal issues of the foot, ankle and lower limb with treatments including exercise therapy, orthotics insoles and injection therapy. Unfortunately we do not provide routine foot care such as nail cutting, corn removal or nail surgery.
