Welcome to Jade Younge Podiatrist

What is a Podiatrist?

Diagnose and treat foot and lower limb conditions.

We care for patients of all ages through the assessment, diagnosis, treatment as well as prevention to ensure the best health and quality of life.

Podiatrists work in a team of other physicians and health care practitioners in order to treat and prevent foot problems in a holistic fashion.

These conditions include common conditions such as nail disease, ingrown toenails, ulcers/wounds, fungal infections and foot pain. We treat and diagnose biomechanical abnormalities and prescribe orthotics to correct these abnormalities. Special care is given to geriatric, physically impaired as well as paediatric care.
