Podiatrics (feet and lower limb)
Mr Gavin Hamilton is our Consultant Podiatric Surgeon who undertakes outpatient consultations at Tetbury on behalf of the Wye Valley NHS Trust.
Podiatric surgeons focus on the foot (bunions, arthritic joints, toe deformities, foot deformity, lumps and bumps etc.). A non-surgical option is always explored, if possible, and if appropriate. Conservative treatment options may include injection, orthotic and exercise therapies, before proceeding to surgical interventions.
We provide most of the non-surgical therapies by working in partnership with Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Podiatry Department, who also attend Tetbury Hospital once a month, delivering care closer to home
You are likely to have been referred by your GP or podiatrist. You should be offered an appointment within two weeks of the referral being received.
You will be seen by the Surgeon. A detailed history of your condition will be taken, so please bring any medication you are currently taking.
If you require an interpreter please inform us prior to your appointment.
