At the Clinique et centre de chirurgie podiatrique, all foot care is performed under the supervision of our podiatrists, by nursing assistants, in compliance with the most demanding standards in terms of health and safety.
Additionally, a podiatrist can help determine the mechanical causes at the origin of the affections of the feet and thus advise the wearing of certain shoes or prescribe plantar orthotics to correct postural problems or dynamic disorders.
Many different conditions can affect your feet, from corns and calluses to warts, fissures, ulcers, and toenail disorders. Meticulous and delicate procedures using ultra-precise equipment are often needed to treat these conditions. These procedures must be performed by professionals under optimal sanitary conditions.
At the Clinique et centre de chirurgie podiatrique, all procedures are performed by licensed practical nurses under the supervision of our podiatrists and in accordance with the strictest health and safety standards.
For certain categories of patients, skin lesions are more than just painful and unsightly—they can pose significant health risks. Diabetics are particularly susceptible to complications and should see their doctor as soon as unusual symptoms develop.
According to a recent study, people with diabetes are 8 times more likely than non-diabetics to have a lower limb amputation. These amputations are very often linked to the infection of small, seemingly harmless wounds (scratches, blisters, cuts). Fortunately, these complications can be avoided with regular podiatric check-ups and appropriate medical care. Diabetic foot ulcers are the most common complication of diabetes.
