KZN FOOT AND ANKLE CLINIC
The KZN Foot and Ankle Clinic is a specialist orthopaedic clinic with a focus on lower extremity problems. Our focus is foot and ankle traumatic injuries, sports injuries, degenerative and arthritic conditions, deformities (bunions), and flat feet problems.
Dr Kevin MacIntyre is a fellowship trained, lower limb surgeon, who obtained post graduate training with internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeons in Europe. Fellowship training provides Dr MacIntyre with an evidence-based approach to your orthopaedic problems in our local state-of-the-art private hospitals.
The decision to operate is based on a comprehensive assessment taking special care to fully understand all aspects of a patient’s life, including functional demands and the condition itself. A conservative approach is first-line treatment with an emphasis on joint sparing, and key-hole (arthroscopic) surgery, when it is necessary to operate.
Special emphasis is given to a multi-disciplinary approach as my primary goal is to obtain the best possible outcome for you, and your family.
