Karin Bruckner | General Podiatry
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.

General Podiatry

Podiatry is all about the health of the foot and the relationship between the foot and lower limb – as imbalances could have effects on other areas of the body.


Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the foot and lower-limb. Podiatrists (also known as foot doctors) provide pain relief from foot deformities, injuries and wounds through palliative means. Minor surgery or the prescription of foot orthoses to realign foot or leg imbalances are all part of the treatment. 


Podiatrists are an important part of a multidisciplinary team, for the preventative care for high-risk patients, such as diabetics, and those with rheumatoid arthritis. They play a vital part in education and assessments to prevent complications. Podiatrists often are the first to be presented with complications or symptoms of the foot, which lead to the diagnosis of systemic medical conditions.


Podiatrists are registered with the Professions Council of South Africa.
