Karina has been nothing short of being extremely professional and she is one of the best podiatrists around. I was diagnosed with Morton's neuroma and Karina attended to my problem and has diligently responded to all of my questions and concerns and has gone far above and beyond what anyone would ever expect. Thanks to her, my issues with my neuroma is resolved and long gone, and I will be referring friends to her, and definitely won't hesitate to go back to her for future podiatric treatment. And what a lovely person too.... I would highly recommend this practice. My sincere thanks to you Karina.

About us

Karina Gajjar is a registered podiatrist with the Health Professions Council Of South Africa  (HPCSA) and the Podiatry Association of South Africa. (PASA)   

As a podiatrist, Karina offers a range of services in which she aims to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage conditions of the lower limb and foot.   

Podiatry is a branch of medicine that involves the treatment, management and prevention of lower limb and foot conditions. Podiatrists treat and manage conditions such as, ingrown toenails, thickened nails, fungal infections, warts, corns and callous, sprains, sports injuries, fractures, bunions, heel pain and much more.   

Podiatrists can give advice regarding the best way in which one should take care of feet, this may involve advice on correct footwear and designing and prescribing customized orthoses/ shoe inserts. 

Orthoses are prescribed based on the presenting foot pathology to reduce foot pain by addressing faulty biomechanics.   Podiatrists also play an important role in the prevention of foot and lower limb ulcerations and amputations in diabetic patients. 

The majority of amputations can be prevented by regular foot examinations and treatment by a podiatrist. Management includes identifying high-risk patients and educating patients on foot health and footwear.   

Podiatrists can identify areas of high pressure marked by callous formation. Regular debridement of callous may prevent complications such as ulcers and amputations.       

Services offered include: 
  • Treatment of common conditions such as corns, callous, warts, ingrown toenails, fungal infections and cracked heels
  • Biomechanical assessment 
  • Treatment and identification of sports injuries 
  • Diabetic screenings 
  • Prescription of orthoses and insoles and much more !
