Mark Plumridge

S.R.Ch., D.Pod.M., M.Ch.S.

Mark runs the podiatry clinic, offering diagnosis and treatment of various disorders relating to the feet, ankles, legs and lower back. He offers podiatry, chiropody, orthotics and nail surgery.

Chiropodists and podiatrists, deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb and are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries. They work with people of all ages but play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.

In the UK there is no difference between the terms chiropodist and podiatrist.  In many other English-speaking countries, however, only the term ‘podiatrist’ is employed and this refers to the fully-trained professional.
