PODIATRIC SURGERY: WHAT IS IT

Podiatric surgeons are podiatrists who have completed extensive, post-graduate medical and surgical training, which enables them to perform reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle. The qualifications of podiatric surgeons are recognised by Australian State and Federal Governments. Podiatric surgeons are included within both the Health Insurance Act and the National Health Act.


Around the world, podiatric surgery has a long history of leadership and innovation in the field of foot surgery. Podiatric surgeons are unique, having dedicated their energy over many years in research, investigation and mastery of medical and surgical therapeutics of the foot and ankle. Podiatric surgeons are uniquely qualified to care for bone, joint, ligament, muscle and tendon pathology of the foot and ankle, including:


  • Structural deformities, including bunions, hammertoes, flat and high arched foot deformity
  • Bone spurs of the foot and ankle
  • Heel pain
  • Nerve entrapments
  • Tendon and soft tissue problems
  • Degeneration and arthrosis of the joints of the foot and ankle
  • Skin and nail conditions
  • Congenital deformities
  • Trauma-related injuries, including fractures and dislocations and posttraumatic arthrosis
