St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney offers an interdisciplinary “one stop shop” for people with complicated foot conditions related to diabetes. Patients see a Podiatrist and Endocrinologist with involvement, as required, of an Orthopaedic Surgeon, Vascular Surgeon, Rehabilitation Specialist, Infectious Diseases Specialist, Pedorthotist, Diabetes Educator, Dietitian and/or other Allied Health. This allows patients to reduce the number of visits to the hospital and also improves coordination of their care between the different health services.
We also accept referrals for people without diabetes. They are attended to by High Risk Foot Podiatrists in satellite clinics throughout the hospital including Vascular Surgery, Fracture Clinic & Rehabilitation.
Referrals accepted from: General Practitioners, Specialists and Podiatrists
Eligibility: Patients aged 18 years and over with one or more of the following foot conditions:
