I am Lisa Johnson and I am a Podiatrist. I treat a wide range of foot and ankle issues in adults, children and the elderly. This can be anything from nail cutting and removal of callus and corns to treating verrucas and in-growing toenails or alleviating foot pain.
I have previously spent time working in the NHS treating high risk patients with a range of conditions. The experience that I have gained has provided me with the skills to confidently and competently treat all aspects of the diabetic foot and provide wound care. If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes then I can give foot care and footwear advice.
I have an interest in bio-mechanics and musculoskeletal complaints. If you are experiencing foot pain when walking, running or during any sporting pursuits, then I can carry out a gait analysis for you and prescribe orthoses (insoles) if appropriate. Stretching or strengthening exercise advice may also help to aid your recovery or alleviate your condition.
I also work closely with the rest of the team here at Amber so if an assessment from another member of the team is relevant I can quickly and easily sort that out for you.
I can offer you a diverse range of treatments, so if one approach is not achieving the results we want there is always something else we can look at. I believe that this approach achieves patient satisfaction and means that your treatment and care is designed around you.
I look forward to meeting you.
