Verrucae Needling Technique in Melbourne, Australia?

Discussion in 'General Issues and Discussion Forum' started by Kevin Kirby, Dec 11, 2012.

    An individual in southeast Australia e-mailed me about practitioners who perform verrucae needling in the Melbourne area for her daughter with a persistent vp. It would be helpful if anyone who practices in this area who performs the vp needling procedure could provide me with their name and contact information for this patient.
     
  2. No one in the Melbourne area performs verrucae needling?

    Hi Kevin

    We have performed needling on a couple of clients, though one was unsuccessful due to (I think) being immunosuppressed.

    Though we are in a Community Health service and only see clients in our local area (in Melbourne's south) so would depend on where she lives/works but I know of a couple of private podiatrists in the area that perform the technique.

    If you send me a private message regarding her location I can either see if she is eligible for service here or talk to the private pods.

    Cheers
    Brett

    Could you send me your e-mail address so I could contact you via e-mail?

    Thanks in advance. kevinakirby@comcast.net

    The client is actually in Beechworth which is 3 1/2 to 4 hours away from Melbourne.

    Is there any Podiatrist in the Beechworth/Albury area that does needling as I wouldn't want them to travel so far?

    Send them to CSU?

    That's an idea. Though Christmas holidays might interfere. I'll contact them.

    Update: Emailed Paul Tinley to see if they perform this at Charles Sturt Uni.
