Our heel pain clinic is suitable for patients that have presented with plantar fasciitis, Achilles’ tendinopathy and generalised heel pain where no cause has been identified.
This clinic is designed for patients that are yet to have had any allied health input such as podiatry or physiotherapy.
Alternating Mondays and Wednesdays at our East Melbourne Clinic.
In most cases, Mr Goldbloom does not operate on plantar fasciitis or Achilles’ tendinopathy unless the patient has committed to, and failed a course of allied health treatment. This is because surgery always carries some risk and there is a reasonable chance that it will not be required.
Appointments at this clinic are all verified case by case for suitability.
At our heel pain clinic, you will see two practitioners: Mr Daniel Goldbloom, orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon, and Erin Smith, clinical podiatrist. Mr Goldbloom and Miss Smith will review your imaging, examine the site of pain and create a management plan.
The cost of this joint consultation is partly rebateable with a referral from your doctor where an additional rebate may be available depending on your private health insurance policy.
