Feet, ankles & lower limbs (Podiatry)


The Department of Podiatry in Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) is a specialist unit focusing on preventing foot and lower limb amputations in patients with complex medical conditions.

The service provides daily inpatient and outpatient clinics at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and regular care of inpatients at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre.

The service aims to identify patients at high risk of amputation and implement an appropriate management plan with an inter-disciplinary focus. Care is provided to those patients with post-amputation sites, active ulceration, infection and structural deformities of the foot and ankle. The service endeavours to optimise wound healing, reduce hospitalisations, facilitate suitable discharge and prevent readmission.

Podiatry is the primary contact for the Multidisciplinary Foot Clinic. This clinic has an alternate week diabetes focus. Within CALHN our High Risk Foot service has achieved national accreditation with the National Association Diabetes Centres.

Clinics operate on a daily basis across both sites.

Please view the Podiatry outpatient service in CALHN web page for more information.
