Podopediatrics (Children’s assessment) - Karin Bruckner
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.

Podopaediatrics is the study of children’s feet. This is focused on treating and addressing early foot deformities and pediatric foot health.

Podopaediatrics can help with:

  • In-toeing
  • Out-toeing
  • ‘Tripping’
  • Tibial torsion
  • Metatarsus adductus
  • Genu Varum
  • Perthes disease
  • Knocked knees
  • Talipes equinovarus
  • Flat feet
  • Severs Disease
  • Freiburg’s Infarction
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans

Many deformities that show up in adult life can often be traced back to early foot growth and development in children. The Podiatrist will focus on preventative foot care and the early detection of foot deformities. It is often possible to prevent the lasting effects of abnormal foot growth and development in children by early diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is essential and many pediatric foot deformities can be treated before they progress into adult foot complications that occur later in life.
