Podiatry is a field of medicine that focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle by medical, surgical or other means.

What is a Podiatrist?
To become a Podiatrist, one must complete a bachelor of science degree at podiatric medical school attending classes much like a dentist and completing more than a thousand clinic hours. .After this point registration is required by the Registration Council under the Ministry of Health. Our podiatrist Christiana Kallona has been qualified in the United Kingdom at the University of Southampton in 2013 and is registered with the governing body of podiatry, the Health Care Professions Council and the Society of Chiropodist & Podiatrists in the UK. After working in the UK she is now in Paphos and also registered with the Cyprus Society of Registered Podiatrists
What can I expect when I visit a Podiatrist?
Any time you experience sore feet or pain, you should consider seeing a podiatrist.
Why are my toenails discolored?
It’s most likely fungus or improper footwear, but please make an appointment for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
I have a painful callus on my little toe, what should I do?
Hammertoes or inflamed joints could cause these symptoms. Schedule an office visit to find out what it is, and how to best treat it.
My feet are itchy and have a bad odor, what could cause this?
You may have athlete’s feet or dermatitis. You would have to be seen to properly diagnose your condition and learn about treatment options.
I twisted my ankle and the pain has worsened, what can I do?
An ankle sprain is most likely the cause, but we should x-ray the ankle to rule out a fracture. You should be seen right away
I have a bump on my big toe and have to buy wider shoes to feel comfortable, what is happening?
It may be a bunion, but for proper diagnosis and to learn about different treatment options, please make an appointment.
I was running and have been in extreme pain ever since. My foot is black and blue. What did I do?
You may have a stress fracture. We would need to examine and x-ray the foot, if the fracture shows up on the x-ray we can determine treatment options. Depending upon the type of fracture, it may be possible to treat with conservative methods. If not, surgery may be required.
I have pain in my big toe,can’t walk or put shoes on and I just noticed that it’s bleeding .what should i do?
It may be an ingrown toenail. If so, the nail may need to be surgically removed, which can be done in the office. Schedule an appointment to get relief right away.
When I walk my arches hurt and my feet always feel tired, what should I be concerned about?
Your discomfort may be due to flat feet. Come in for an exam so we can determine the best plan of treatment, which may include anti-inflammatory medications or orthotics. In some cases surgical intervention may be required.
