Orthotics Plus is excited to welcome Podiatrist, Dr. Annette Sandberg to the team. We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care and feel Podiatry will compliment our Orthotic services greatly.
General Podiatry care involves the assessment and treatment of foot complaints including corns, warts, nail care and skin care issues. This may also involve minor surgery including removal of nail spikes under a local anaesthetic. High risk foot Podiatry care provides patient with a neurological and vascular assessment, treatment for patients with fragile skin. It also provides care for patients with Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, peripheral arterial disease and the ulcers which can results from these conditions.
Annette brings with her a wealth of knowledge and skill after working in the health industry since 1997. She is one of approximately 5 people in Australia to hold a degree in both Podiatry and Prosthetics and Orthotics. Annette graduated with a bachelor degree of Prosthetics and Orthotics from La Trobe University in 1977. In 2012, Annette then completed a Bachelor of Podiatry (with distinctions).
Annette began her professional working life in Sydney, but realised the coffee was better in Melbourne and soon returned home.
