Diabetic Foot Assessment 

A 20 minute foot assessment using ultrasound to measure the amount of blood flow to the feet; together with a test to check for any loss of protective sensation. A full report of the assessment is provided.   

Verruca Treatment 

In this 30 minute session, liquid nitrogen and salicylic acid is used to freeze/thaw and destroy the skin cells affected by the verruca virus. After treatment, a sore blister will form, followed by a scab, which will detach 7-10 days later.

This usually takes 15- 20 minutes and can be painful. A semi-compressed felt pad is applied before the treatment to offload the affected area. Large verrucas usually need to be frozen a few times before they clear up. Treatments are usually spaced a week apart.
