Cabrini Health Podiatry

Tooronga Podiatry is very proud to provide the Podiatry service at Cabrini Health.

Cabrini Hospital-based Podiatry services offer an array of specialised treatments, ranging from wound care and routine podiatry care to orthotic prescriptions and gait analysis. Individuals with diabetic foot ulcers, for instance, benefit immensely from the multidisciplinary support available in hospitals, as these ulcers can lead to severe complications if left untreated. Podiatrists collaborate with Wound Care team, Medical Specialists and other Allied Health Care teams to implement strategies that facilitate healing, manage infection, and prevent amputations.

 

Depending on your foot health issues, your Podiatry treatment at Cabrini Health will be covered either by an “in-hospital charge”, or charged as a “Private fee”. 

Your Cabrini Podiatrist will discuss any potential out of pocket expense with you prior to treatment.

Podiatry at Cabrini

Podiatry is a specialised field of health care focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions related to the feet, ankles, and lower extremities, plays a crucial role within hospital settings. The integration of Podiatry services within Cabrini Hospitals offers several distinct advantages, contributing to comprehensive patient care and improved overall health outcomes.

Patients can conveniently access various diagnostic tools such as X-rays, ultrasounds, and laboratory tests within the same facility, enabling swift and accurate diagnoses. This integrated approach results in timely treatment interventions, reducing the risk of complications and promoting faster recovery.

This integration fosters comprehensive patient care through interdisciplinary collaboration, timely diagnosis, and specialised treatments.
