Podiatry covers far more than just the routine cutting of nails and day to day care. Every HPC Registered Podiatrist is medically trained in their speciality and is experienced in all aspects of care from the knee downwards, from simple nail care, verrucae, corns and bunions to diabetic ulcers and gangrene.
