ABOUT PODIATRIC SURGERY
Podiatric Surgery is a specialist branch of podiatry that involves the surgical management of foot and ankle conditions. Podiatric surgeons have a long history of delivering high quality, safe reconstructive foot and ankle surgery across Australia. The majority of surgery performed by podiatric surgeons is carried out in the private hospital setting on a day case basis, which means that most patients are able to go home on the same day as their surgery. Podiatric surgeons adhere to the highest standards of care and primarily perform surgery with a surgical team that includes anaesthetists, surgical assistants, nurses and other hospital staff to deliver the best outcomes for their patients.
Podiatric surgeons undergo many years of extensive training before qualifying and are recognised by state and federal law as specialists and are registered as such through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
