    Yesterday I received an e-mail from a 29 year old girl who is based in New Delhi. From the information she gave me she sounds as if she is under the care of an Orthopaedic Surgeon, but is very keen for a second (Podiatry) opinion.

    Forgive my ignorance for the state of Podiatry provision in India, but is there anyone on the forum who is based in New Delhi (or nearby), or alternatively can recommend someone who is? I will pass on all her details/information (with her permission) if so.


  2. Hi Ian Gez can help from this thread - He might now of one or maybe your patient could fly to Kolkata ?

    Hi Ian

    I have recently had an old patient of mine ring me from India because she had a foot problem and was unable to find a podiatrist. She was being sent to doctors who in her words "didn't seem very competent or knowledgeable about feet".

    When she came into surgery on a brief return home she told me podiatry is non existent in India with her and her company searching all avenues they were unable to find anyone.

    So I wish you luck mate.

    I'm still trying to find a Pod in Hong Kong for a patient of mine that now lives there and needs new orthotics if anyone can help with that ??
  4. Try Lisa aka HKPod - as in Hong Kong Pod - hkpod

    Hi Algeos India is in Mumbai and we are establishing a network of diabetic foot clinics in India. First few are in Mumbai.

    In India there is an Indian podiatry association although no podiatrists are members. But then that is India.

    Podiatrists can't obtain a license to practise as Ortho surgeons in their wisdom believe that they will steal their business. However recently we have pushed for podiatrists to be setup as allied health professionals which will allow a license.

    Anyway - there is a podiatry clinic in Delhi run by Dr Suri who has done some podiatry training in USA and deals with biomechanics, diabetes, wound care and some surgery.

    Details are:

    A P S Suri G-191, ,, Naraina, Delhi, Delhi - 110028
    Tel: 011-,41038359, Mob: 98105 08359

    Hope this helps.

    I also know plenty of podiatrists in Hong Kong and the rest of asia if you need any contacts in future.

    Thanks Hugh, that does help. From the information given to me this sounds like a complex musculoskeletal case, so hopefully Dr Suri will be able to help/advise.

    I will pass these details on.

    Hi sorry for the late reply to this thread.

    Podiatry is virtually non existent in India. However interestingly there was an article in the Indian times a few weeks ago looking at podiatry as a prospective career for students. So maybe things are due to change soon.

    I work in kolkata, which is an overnight train ride from Delhi. I would be more than happy to contact your patient but i have limited resources for treatment. I certainly don't have the gear to be making orthotics. So maybe a local clinic would be better.
    I work in MS back in Oz so if your patient would like a chat my e-mail is g_huck@hotmail.com.

    hope your patient gets some help

    Hi, I am going to start my Podiatry school in september in U.S. It is 4 year program + 3 year residency. I am Canadian citizen, but was born in India and spent my childhood there. I want to practice podiatry there. Can I do that , let's say in 10 years time?

    I am very much interested in Diabetic foot treatment and would love to practice that as a podiatrist in India. Reply if you have any info on the procedure.
