At Will Adams NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
A bunion is a painful bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe which usually gets worse over time. Surgical removal commonly involves part of the toe bone being cut or removed and the bones being realigned.
Tightened ligaments and tendons cause the middle and end joints in the toe to contract, causing the toe joints to curl downwards. This condition is often caused by arthritis. Treatments can include physio, or surgery for severe cases.
Lumps like ganglions beneath the skin can be removed if they are causing pain or difficulty with footwear.
A condition that often occurs with bunions: the toe bends downwards at the middle joint. This usually happens in the second toe and causes the middle toe joint to rise up. Suitable pads, shoes and exercises can treat this condition. Surgery is used to treat severe cases.
This develops when the edge of the toenail grows down and cuts into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling and/or bleeding. Over the counter remedies usually solve the problem. In severe cases surgery is possible to remove some or all of the nail.
Any surgical procedure on the foot that uses the latest technology to make fewer, smaller incisions, resulting in reduced tissue damage and scarring. All our treatments are performed during the day and don’t require overnight stay.
Please be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
