Podiatry for Children

Women are four times more likely to have foot problems.

Children’s foot and leg expert — Antoni Caserta

All of our podiatrists enjoy working with kids and have been trained to assess and manage the unique problems that can affect their feet and legs. But because we strive to provide the absolute best service, we also bring in the best people.

We’re extremely fortunate to have Antoni Caserta working at Fairfield Podiatry every Wednesday evening. Antoni has been mentored by some of the most experienced paediatric podiatrists in Australia. He spends the majority of the week working in the paediatric team at Monash Health, which exposes him to children with a huge variety of problems. Antoni is also in the process of completing a PhD focusing on toe walking. Your child’s feet are in good hands with Antoni!
