A podiatrist will have studied in depth the medicine and mechanics of the foot and will work independently from a Doctor.
We are happy to treat people with medical conditions such as diabetic feet and arthritis and provide custom insoles and footwear advice appropriate for diabetics.

Ruggero has a special interest in working with Athletes and those who require the ultimate in protection and performance for their feet, no matter their activity level.  ”As a sub-11 Second One Hundred metre Runner, I know that precision in performance is everything to the athlete.  I transfer that precision to my clinical practice, whether its post surgical intervention to preventing foot fatigue and hard skin build up”.   Every improvement we make counts in the long term.
BSc Hons Podiatrist

Mr R.A.Calo’ BSc Hons Podiatrist

In his early twenties he was working on his significant natural ability in sprint running and track and field but had to cut short the career due to an injury and working committments.   He has represented the University of Southampton in athletics and competitive swimming.  He also holds qualifications in the teaching of swimming and martial arts.  He carries on his sports training purely for his love of the outdoors in his adopted Dorset!
“At Bournemouth Podiatry we want every client that walks through our door to fully understand the importance of their feet.”
