Foot Specialist – Brisbane. Things we cannot help with:
As a podiatric foot specialist – Brisbane, some things that fall outside our influence are:
- Treatment of vascular problems such as reduced blood flow. We can assess and measure blood flow but treatment is performed by a vascular surgeon.
- Treatment of cancers such as SCC, BCC, melanomas, etc.
- Some types of neuropathy are not treatable. This includes severe diabetic neuropathy, leprosy, results of chemotherapy or chemical damage and other diseases that destroy nerve tissues or coverings. Neuropathies that arise because of physical impairment of nerve function can respond to treatment. This includes nerve entrapments and chronic constriction injuries. Neuropathies may be misdiagnosed and it may be worth re-evaluating your original diagnosis.
