Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
My FootDr podiatry centres have revolutionised podiatry services in Singapore by offering expert footcare in the Camden Medical Centre, Singapore’s premier medical wellness and preventative healthcare centre.
Managed by one of Singapore’s most experienced and premier podiatrists Matt Herd, my FootDr will be offering consultations from February 2012. Matt qualified as a podiatrist from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia after which he moved to Singapore to work for the last 5 years. Matt has worked at various institutions including Alexandra Hospital, Diabetes Society of Singapore and as a locum at the National University Hospital, and more recently in private practice. Matt has gained vast experience in a broad scope of podiatric practice. He has special interests in sports podiatry, biomechanics and paediatric podiatry.
An accomplished athlete himself, Matt regularly competes in triathlons and long distance running events throughout Australasia. He is also involved in many other sporting events and activities and his keen interest in cycling and bike set-up integrates perfectly with the introduction of Solestar cycling orthotics in Singapore. Matthew is a member of the Podiatry Association Singapore, Diabetes Society Singapore and the Sports Medicine Association Singapore.

Approximately 200,000 Australians are hospitalised every year as a result of having a fall. Bone fractures are the most common type of injury resulting from a fall. While falls are most common in those aged over 65, young males aged 5-24 years are also particularly prone to falls.
Regardless of your age, activity levels or health status, helping prevent falls is an important part of what we do here at My FootDr.
Do you have swollen feet or ankles after you’ve been sitting, standing or walking in a hot environment? You’re not alone. Medically known as heat oedema, this uncomfortable swelling generally occurs because the heat from your environment causes your blood vessels to naturally expand (dilate). As they do, fluid can leak into the surrounding tissues. Pair this with gravity encouraging the passage of larger volumes of fluid down into the legs, and you’ve got swollen feet, ankles and even legs.
As with anything, there are a number of extra risk factors that can make you more vulnerable to this swelling, so today, the podiatrists at My FootDr have shared what these are, what you can do to help prevent the swelling before it starts, and how to best manage the swelling if it’s already here.
Dark spots on the toes and feet are both a cause of concern for many patients we see and treat here at My FootDr. From wondering if they’re a sign of something serious, to being aesthetically displeasing, patients often ask us how they can get rid of the discolouration, fast.
To help, our podiatry team has shared the common causes of dark marks we see on the feet and toenails, what they mean, and what can be done to remove them.
