About myself and my practice

I have been in private practice for over 35 years.  I started my first practice in Johannesburg in 1988.  In 1993 I located to Cape Town and opened three practices – Fish Hoek, Parow and Claremont (being the main practice).  My special interests are toe nail surgery especially ingrown toe nails and nail deformaties (surgical and non surgical). I also treat diabetic feet (CDE accredited), lower back (foot related) pain, children with foot problems (podopaediatrics) and orthotic manufacture.  Home visits can also be arranged depending on the area.
