Types of Treatments at Custom Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre
Laser Therapy for Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is a medical condition that affects more than two million Canadians. It causes discoloured, thick, hard to cut or crumbly nails. Learn how we use laser therapy to treat toenail fungus >
In-Office Nail Surgery
Do you have a swollen, red, infected and painful toenail? It’s likely an infected ingrown toenail. Ingrown toenails are one of the more common foot problems treated by chiropodists. Learn more about ingrown toenail treatment >
Custom Nail Braces for Ingrown Toenails
Corrective nail braces are medical devices, similar to dental braces which use tension to exert a change in tissues. The application of a custom nail brace takes only a few minutes, and may fix problems with your toenails over a period of time. Learn more about custom nail braces for ingrown toenails >

As a professional chiropodist for over 20 years, I have seen almost everything when it comes to feet.
I sincerely care about your well being and I have solutions for almost every foot problem.
My passion is to get people moving and feeling better… so your feet can fly!
I am a registered chiropodist and foot care specialist and have been helping patients for over 20 years.
Are you uncertain about whether you should choose a chiropodist vs. podiatrist? Chiropodists and podiatrists provide the same care. There are 600 registered chiropodists in Ontario and only 60 podiatrists. The College of Chiropodists of Ontario stopped using the name podiatrist in Ontario in 1993, over 26 years ago — but the name is still used in other provinces in Canada, also USA and UK.
Chiropodists today must complete 7 years of post-secondary education. We do complete case management of foot problems, assessing and treating the entire foot and its complications.
