Professional podiatrist Anthony Mason FSSCh, MChS, Dip Pod Med, set up his successful business Bear Foot in 2002 to provide patients with a range of podiatry treatments across the Algarve.
“A podiatrist, also known as a chiropodist, diagnoses and treats diseases and other disorders of the feet,” said Anthony Mason. “We keep people mobile and active, carry out nail surgery, relieve pain and treat infections.”
Anthony provides care from his Bear Foot clinic in Loulé as well as from the Family Medical Centre in Quinta do Lago and the International Health Centre in Albufeira.
There, patients are offered treatment and advice on a range of foot related conditions such as ageing feet, athlete´s foot, bunions, nail surgery, rheumatoid arthritis, warts and much more. Anthony also provides specialist services including nail surgery under local anaesthetic, fungal nail treatments and biomechanical assessment.
“If your feet hurt, something is wrong, so it is best to visit a qualified podiatrist who will advise patients on the best course of treatment,” said Anthony.
Bear Foot also supplies a range of products for the feet including insoles for golf shoes and prescription ‘crocs’ for diabetics.
