Karin Brückner has been in practice as a podiatrist in Cape Town for over 25 years. She sees patients from all walks of life, including many foreign visitors.
She treats all foot conditions and symptoms related to the foot and ankle, from ingrown toenails, warts and nail infections to foot injuries which could require orthosis (arch supports) or other interventions.
Karin specialises in nail surgery and does procedures to prevent ingrown toenails from reoccurring.
Onychomycosis (nail fungus) is also a special interest of hers. Patients seen by Karin are athletes, retirees, diabetics, children and anyone needing foot care.
Her practice is nestled at the foot of Table Mountain in Vredehoek, also known as Devil’s Peak, which is close to the centre of Cape Town with easy access and parking.
The surgery is equipped with the latest technology including computerised gait analysis (RSSCAN) equipment, laser, and a nail debriding machine.
The laser which is available at the practice allows for treatment of nail fungus infections without the side effects which can result from drug therapy. It’s non-toxic and can treat all ten toes in 15-20 minutes with no downtime.
