What we do
At Healthpoint we have one of the few Podiatry clinics in the UAE where we design and manufacture custom foot orthotics (foot supports such as shoe insoles) in-house. These supports can often be successfully used to treat foot or back pain. Orthotic devices are designed to suit your specific foot and ailment. They are also designed to fit different types of shoes to suit your specific lifestyle – for instance, women may have several orthotics for the use in sports shoes, work shoes, as well as, high heels.
With the latest in state of the art technology our Podiatrist also produces small correct devices such as digital splints, as well as, protective toe and finger nails.
At your first consultation, our Specialist takes a full medical history and does basic tests to check for blood circulation and feeling in the feet. A physical assessment is performed looking at the static and dynamic posture of the foot and the musculoskeletal system using advanced techniques such as podoscope and computerized gait analysis. Usually minor problems can be diagnosed on the spot; our Podiatrist will discuss concerns and make a diagnosis followed by a specialized treatment plan to fit your specific needs.
We offer outpatient consultation and assessment services, inpatient and same-day services, including:
- Toe nail problems (thickened, fungal, ingrown toenails)
- Corns and calluses
- Ageing feet
- Athlete’s foot, over sweating (hiperhydrosis)
- Sports injuries
- Diabetes related issues such as diabetic foot and diabetic foot ulcers
- Dry and cracked heels
- Flat feet and cavus feet, over pronation and supination
- Bunions and metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
- Heel pain and fasciitis
Our Podiatrist has patients who visit every month for a clinical Medical Pedicure to keep their feet in the best possible condition.
Podiatry plays an important, integrated role in many multi-disciplinary medical treatments and patients are often referred by Orthopedic Surgeons, Vascular Surgeons, Sports Consultants, Pediatricians, Rheumatologists, Endocrinologists, Neurologists, GPs, Physiotherapists and Nurses.
