A specialist centre for the foot & ankle conditions
Welcome to East Coast Podiatry Centre
Singapore’s leading team in Podiatry services
With an international team of Podiatric specialists, we operate three full-scale podiatry centres in Orchard, Bukit Timah and East Coast.
Our team of Podiatrists are internationally trained and head by highly experienced podiatrists from local hospitals such as Singapore General Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Alexandra, Jurong and NHG Polyclinics.
Our clinical specialists treat all types of foot and ankle pathology such as flat foot, sports injuries, children’s developmental abnormality, recurring bone, joint, muscle pain, wounds, skin and nail infection. We offer expert foot care advice and treatment solutions, as well as preventative measures to avoid the need for surgery.
While we offer holistic management to help you become pain-free, our extensive hospital-based training and experience will ensure that you receive prompt recognition and correct care for any hidden and serious lower limb conditions.
We are front-line healthcare specialists who work closely with doctors to pick up on lower limb conditions early and help patients maintain or seek appropriate treatment from these other medical specialists if needed.
You should see a Podiatrist whenever you have any concerns about your foot or ankle, especially if you are experiencing pain with daily activities/ sports, or if you notice a bone deformity becoming larger.
Patients may not notice and address their problem while it is early and more easily treatable, and may inadequately self-treat further aggravating the condition.
Many people may be unfamiliar with Podiatry despite its internationally-recognised status as a Western medical specialty. If you feel you need a second opinion on your foot problem, see a Podiatrist today.
