Noarlunga Hospital Podiatry has a clinical focus and provides services for people who are assessed as having a 'high risk' foot status. Services are provided to meet the complex clinical needs of clients and our podiatrists are often involved in coordinating care with medical and community based providers.

Assessment, ongoing intervention and education is available to people who have at least one of the following:

  • active wounds, ulceration or infection with bacterial involvement
  • diagnosed as 'high risk' of complication including:
    • peripheral vascular disease (narrowing of the arteries in the legs causing circulation problems)
    • peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage)
  • medical conditions that have a direct impact on foot health (eg renal failure, auto-immune diseases)
  • problematic nail types that need surgery
  • children aged 0-16 years who have a variation in normal foot function due to developmental delay or lower limb pain.

Eligible inpatients can access services when admitted to NH if intervention is part of their treatment or discharge plan.

Please note: People who are not assessed as 'high risk' for developing a lower limb complication are referred to community based podiatrists.
