A podiatrist is often referred to as a foot doctor because surgical procedures are performed in a hospital theatre by a Consultant Podiatrist, such as Mr Masucci.
The professional body for chiropodists and podiatrists is the College of Podiatry.
Mr Masucci is a Fellow of the College of Podiatry (Surgical Faculty).
