This is not a picture of my Toronto podiatry clinic
posted: Feb. 26, 2012.
The image below is from a modern postcard reproducing a painting titled "The Foot Surgery." The painting is by Antonie Victorijns (c.1612-c.1655) and it is on display at the Catharina Gasthuis Museum in Gouda, the Netherlands.
This postcard was published in the Netherlands in the 2000s.
The equiptment in my Toronto podiatry office is somewhat newer and cleaner. I use local anesthetic when I do Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery to treat problems such as Bunions, hammertoes, corns, bone spurs, and ingrown nails. Also, the surgeon in the picture probably didn't have access to other modern equiptment that I have in my Toronto foot clinic such as a long pulsed YAG laser for the treatment of onychomycosis or toenail fungus, as well as sound wave units such as radial wave (also called pressure wave or radial shockwave) and Superpulsed Laser Pain Treatment for acute plantar fasciitis, heel pain and arch pain and Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for chronic Heel Spur Pain, Arch Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis.
I do, however, have a few vintage foot surgery posters and beatles posters on the walls in my Toronto podiatry clinic which you can admire when you come for a private consultation to discuss your foot problem with me . Call us today at 416-486-9917
