My name is Christian Olivier and my purpose as a podiatrist or foot doctor is to ensure relief from pain to not only your feet, but your lower limbs as a whole. Comfort of your feet for all purposes, whether shod or not is something I strive to achieve daily for my patients. Many people suffer from embarrassing ailments to their feet. It’s for this reason that I strive for consultations to be set in an environment of comfort and trust. It’s important for me to impart knowledge to you of your condition and all possible treatment options not only from a podiatrists perspective, but from a medial family as a whole. You will leave with a treatment for your particular condition.

Orthotics

I have a special interest in the correct diagnosis and prescription for the use of custom moulded orthotics. My approach in this regard is unorthodox, as in my opinion, orthotics’ are over prescribed, incorrectly diagnosed, inaccurately prescribed and even worse, often badly made. I exhaust all other options of management before advising on orthotics, especially for my runners.

Toenail Laser Treatment

Many patients struggle from thickened, discoloured and miss-formed toe nails. This is most likely caused by a common condition referred to as Onychomycosis, or Fungal Infections of the toe nails. Laser treatment is finally available to all patients struggling with this condition. In most cases the treatment is once off and has no side effects. Read more
