This is a minor surgical procedure where the entire foot and ankle is numbed with a local anesthetic. The verruca is then needled repeatedly. This is to stimulate a local inflammatory response to the area and stimulate heeling of really stubborn verrucae’s. It is currently the most effective treatment for verrucae’s.

If you have pain when walking or running then a biomechanical assessment would benefit you. This is an assessment of you lower limb when moving, walking, jumping. Any issues can then be managed with exercises, manual therapy and sometimes orthotic (insole) prescription.
I was apprehensive about having any form of “surgery” for my verruca which hasn’t gone away in 10 years. However Alice was thoroughly professional, treatment was quick and painless and I now don’t mind showing off my feet at the beach!
Warm welcoming and friendly! Highly recommend
Really glad to have found somewhere where I can go for my regular check ups where I know they will provide a really high standard of care.
Life a life without pain
