Dr S Islam is a GP in South Tyneside and has close links with South Tyneside Marine College.

Podiatric Care is required for many foot problems commonly experienced by senior citizens. These can include anything from routine palliative care of unmanageable toenails and calluses to diabetic ulcerations and infections. At this time in life, circulatory impairment, as well as degenerative joint and skin conditions are common findings.

With proper care and attention to their feet, seniors may enjoy many years of pain-free foot function.
