Where Can I Find A Podiatrist?

There is a serious shortage of podiatrists in South Africa at present, with less than 200 registered with the HPCSA and about 160 in private practice. Some of the major hospitals have a podiatrist either full or part-time.

The South African Podiatry Association represents most podiatrists in matters of ethics, business and publicity. 

You can use their website at www.podiatrist.co.za and the link under ‘Find a podiatrist in YOUR area’ to find the listing of registered podiatrists. 

If you dont have web access then the Podiatry Association can be contacted at 0861 100 249 or Email: sapa@podiatrist.co.za.

You can also look in the Yellow Pages under Podiatrists.
