A POPULAR local family-run business specialising in treating feet and lower limb conditions is expanding and has opened a new clinic in Eastbourne.

Sussex Footcare, offering podiatry and chiropody services, is run by keen sportsman Andrew Albon, 31, and is based at The Mews in Watts Lane, Eastbourne.

Andrew is a third-generation podiatrist, following in the footsteps of his mum, uncle, and grandad. He qualified from the University of Brighton with a Bachelor of Science podiatry degree, and he is extremely excited about the prospects for the new clinic.

He said: “This has been a long-term goal from the outset, after gaining a wealth of experience within the NHS and privately, it now feels the right time for us to expand our business with the opening of this exciting new clinic.

“We already have an extensive loyal customer base in Eastbourne and Main services offered include: • Clinic Visits. • Nail Surgery. • Biomechanics. • Laser treatment for fungal nails. • Orthotics. • Home visits. • Diabetic foot assessment. • Callus and corns. • Heel Pain. • Ingrown toenails. • Verrucas. • Care and nursing home visits.

The friendly team are experienced, fully qualified and have decades of experience. We genuinely believe we offer the best service. “Now we can also offer a lovely location with easy parking.”

Andrew lives in Eastbourne with his wife Rosie and two-year-old son Oliver. When he is not chasing Oliver around, Andrew is a keen sportsman playing football, cricket, golf and bowls. He has also previously run the Brighton Marathon in aid of the Alzheimer’s society.

With his sporting background, he has had his own fair share of injuries which brings personal interest in treating sporting injuries and rehabilitation.

The company covers Eastbourne and the surrounding areas, and it is a proud advocate of the Dementia friendly champions, visiting more than 30 care homes.

Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who have been trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.

Andrew said: “Very often, what can seem a simple procedure such as cutting your toenails can become an impossible task for varying reasons. Therefore, the majority of our patients book regular routine appointments with us to keep on top of this fundamental footcare.

“We combine skill with latest technology, and we are pleased to be able to offer Lunula laser treatment for fungal nails. It is the revolutionary low-level laser therapy bringing hope to people suffering from painful, discoloured and disfigured fungal toenails associated with onychomycosis.

“We also offer nail surgery for ingrown toenails which will provide long term pain relief and comfort. Having performed many nail surgeries, it is always surprising how long people put up with the excruciating pain, considering how quickly and effectively this can be resolved in my clinic.”

Sussex Footcare works closely with other Health Care Professionals and as a Multidisciplinary team. We offer biomechanical assessments and bespoke orthotics, anything out of our scope we can refer on and we also have MSK specialist Dao from Rebalance Foot & Ankle Services working alongside us in our clinic.

“We are taking on new patients and would love to see you visit our Podiatry clinic”
