Podiatry at the Cadogan Clinic provides some of the best options for flat feet treatment that London has to offer
Flat feet is a foot condition characterised by very low arches. The condition can occur in one or both feet. While standing, most men and women have a gap between the inner part of the foot and the ground. This gap is called the arch and it is important, because it helps to provide a stable posture and correct body alignment and balance. If your feet have a low arch or no arch whatsoever, they are referred to as flat feet or fallen arches.
Depending on how severe the case is, individual symptoms can vary widely. Some people experience corns or hard skin under the sole of the foot. Others may wear out their shoes unusually quickly due to increased pressure on them. There are also cases where there is pain and tenderness along the arch. In more extreme cases, arches that are severely fallen may lead to a wide range of health problems, including pain in the calves, knees and hips. In these situations, the posture of the body is compromised, affecting the balance of the whole body. Flat feet should not be taken lightly and timely treatment is recommended to alleviate symptoms in order to help prevent unnecessary further damage.

What to Expect
Step 1. Optional Free Consultation
We offer a free no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our specialist patient advisors to help you decide whether surgery is the right choice for you. The consultation will take the form of a discussion with an expert with over 15 years industry experience in which we begin to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve.
If you decide to go ahead with treatment, our advisers can give you all the information you require to choose the right procedure and the right surgeon for you. This is also an excellent opportunity to see our facilities and get a feel for the Cadogan experience.
Step 2. Surgical Consultation
The next step is to come in and meet your chosen surgeon at the Clinic. We have assembled some of the best surgeons in the world who will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you and your condition before proceeding with treatment.
In practice this involves a 30-60 minute consultation in which a detailed assessment of the outcomes you can achieve is made and any questions you may have about the procedure are answered.
Step 3. The Procedure
On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Clinic by your patient advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.
After the procedure you will recover in the capable hands of your nursing after care team. As we are a day case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours and able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure.
Step 4. After Care & Support
Our care and support continues in the days and weeks after your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. A series of free appointments will be made with your surgeon and nursing team in order to monitor your progress and recovery, as well as introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke creams to aid your progress.
Access to our aftercare nursing team is free of charge for a full 12 months after your surgery.
