The most common types of foot and ankle conditions treated at Harley Street are:

  • Corns

Treatment for foot and ankle conditions

Non-surgical options such as physiotherapy or corticosteroid injections can help but only in the short term. Surgery is the preferred option and a very effective form of treatment.

Typical surgical procedures include:

  • Arthroscopic debridement (removal of loose cartilage and inflamed tissue from the ankle joint).
  • Ankle fusion (joining together of two sides of the ankle joint)
  • Ankle replacement
  • Complete foot reconstruction
  • Correction of a deformity caused by a bunion
  • Correction of a claw toe
  • Increase movement in hallux rigidus (stiff) big toe

Surgery ranges from mild, corrective procedures through to total foot or ankle reconstruction work.

The treatment process starts with the completion of a set of registration forms followed by a consultation. This meeting will involve questions about your condition and medical history followed by an examination of your foot or ankle.

You may undergo a series of diagnostic tests, delivered by highly experienced staff using the latest equipment and techniques. This takes place in state of the art facilities.

If surgery is recommended then this will be arranged for you.
