Whatever your age, foot pain can drastically affect your quality of life. At My FootDr South Hobart — Ispahan (formerly Ispahan Podiatry and Footwear), we understand how important it is to keep you on your feet whether you’re a seasoned sports person, or just need to get from A to B.
We specialise in treating overuse injuries, sports injuries and biomechanical alignment problems that may also cause pain up the chain at the shin, knee, hip and back. We can also help treat common foot conditions from corns, calluses, ingrown toenails and skin conditions, to plantar fasciitis, bunions, tendonitis diabetic foot conditions and other lower limb pathologies
Our team of Podiatrists may prescribe orthotic therapy to correct alignment. Orthotics are custom-designed and fabricated in our on-site orthotic laboratory to suit your individual needs. We also use digital video gait analysis to aid in diagnosing the biomechanical causes of painful foot conditions.
About My FootDr Ispahan Podiatry Centre
Ispahan Podiatry was established by well-known Hobart Podiatrist Clive Browne in 1994. The practice takes its name from the building Ispahan, built in the 1930’s by Iranian doctor Tom Gaha.
Principal Podiatrist Chris Angel has been a practitioner at Ispahan since moving to Hobart in 2001. When former owner Clive retired in 2007, Chris took over the practice and continues to strive for excellence.
In 2017, Ispahan Podiatry entered a new era to become My FootDr Ispahan. In addition to full podiatry services, patients and customers now have access to our great comfort fashion and orthotic-friendly footwear range, conveniently situated at our practice.
Our friendly staff are trained to help you find the right shoes for your needs and ensure the correct fit.

Having warts on the bottom of the feet that won’t go away is a frustrating, ongoing problem that can last months or even years. They can make walking unpleasant but also painful. While many people are told that they should just wait for the wart to go away on its own, or to use padding in the meantime that only ever provides a little temporary relief, the reality is that when left untreated, warts can stick around for a very long time.

Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, are a common and painful complaint. A true ingrown toenail is when a spike or edge of nail pierces the skin at the nail edge. This is known as the sulcus and can cause inflammation and even lead to infection.
There are a variety of factors that can cause ingrown toenails. The most common cause is due to improper cutting of your toenail and leaving a spike of nail in the sulcus. It can also be a result of a curved nail, known as an involuted nail, from external pressure.
If you are experiencing pain, redness, and swelling around your toenail, it may be time to consider seeing one of our podiatrists. With over 30 years of combined experience in treating foot and ankle conditions, we have successfully treated many cases of ingrown toenails.
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.
