Feet: the basis of our well-being and health

Preserving healthy feet requires regular and adequate care. If there is a prolonged lack of appropriate care, heathy feet are transformed into pathological feet with pain and difficulties with wearing footwear and walking.It is important to highlight the world of difference between the hands and the feet in terms of maintenance and care. While it is relatively easy for everyone to take care of their hands, caring for the feet is fundamentally different.

Indeed, a great number of people struggle to care for their feet for various reasons and require podiatrists so that their feet remain in top condition.

Corns and calluses, as well as pathological toenails are a source of discomfort and suffering and are the main reason for consultation in the management of non-traumatic foot problems.

The interventions necessary to treat these conditions are delicate and meticulous. They must be performed with specific instruments under strict hygienic conditions to avoid injury and complications.Thanks to modern technology, our expertise and experience, we can treat these lesions without pain and without breaking the skin barrier.

Moreover, some of these conditions require orthopodiatric management, in addition to treatment.
