AMA Podiatry has a long history in Children’s Podiatry assessment and early childhood development. Your pediatric podiatrist has a strong commitment to quality patient care with a holistic approach, our dedicated team review your child through walking, range of motion, gait difficulties and balance and coordination assessment.
Some Conditions do normally outgrow themselves, other conditions require some form of intervention. Combined with advice from the parent and associated health care provider we formulate a treatment plan for your child. Alex Adam is the chief Pediatric Foot Doctor for the southeast corridor of Melbourne and the city of Kingston Maternal Health for the past eight years.
From your child’s initial assessment, your Pediatric Podiatrist will advise you of the best management plan for your child’s feet.
Goals and outcomes are developed in consultation with both your child and family in mind.
