Special interest

Ingrown Toenail Surgeries
The clinic offers conservative and surgical treatment options for ingrowing toenails. We realise ingrowing toenails are painful and many patients have concerns about how painful the treatment may be. The clinic utilises techniques that result in minimal discomfort to the patient.

Prolotherapy
New injection therapy that treats pain with a weak glucose solution. It works on the theory of Hilton’s law that “the nerve trunk supplying a joint also supplies the overlying skin and the muscles that move the joint.” It works well when combined with other joint, tendon or ligament injections.
