What we do





Corn and Callus
Calluses are areas of hardened skin most commonly found on the ball of the foot and the heel. Corns are smaller more focused areas of hard skin that often appear to have a 'core' (Corns do not have roots.) These are most commonly found on the toes, particularly the little toe, and can also occur between the toes. Both callus and corns are caused by pressure, it is the body's natural way of protecting itself, but as the pressure continues the callus will get thicker until it becomes painful.

Causes of pressure include:

  • Ill fitting footwear
  • Biomechanical abnormalities of the foot or lower limb
  • Digital deformity e.g hammer toes
  • Bony prominences

Corns and callus can be painlessly removed by your HCPC registered podiatrist. The use of medicated (acid based) corn plasters and mechanical hard skin removers (e.g graters and knives) can be damaging to skin and should not be attempted without professional advice.
Adult Feet
Verrucae
A Verruca is a viral infection of the skin, caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). These can appear as raised fleshy lumps on the toes but more commonly appear on the sole of the foot as a flat rough area that looks a little like a cauliflower. The Verruca may or may not seem to have little black dots on the surface. They are often not painful, but they will usually hurt when squeezed gently. There are many different types of Verrucae and they can be difficult to diagnose, but our podiatrist has seen lots and can sympathetically diagnose and offer treatment advice. Back to Top
Cryo-Surgery
In cases of long-standing Verrucae, or failure to respond to other treatments, cryo-surgery can be a very effective treatment. It involves freezing the affected area, with a cold gas, in short bursts. Back to Top
