About Keep On Your Feet
What is Advanced Podiatry?
Advanced podiatry is where, as a health professional, we make sure we bridge any gaps between the foot problem you come in with and any other health conditions you have that may prevent you getting the best outcome.
The importance of a 'multi-disciplinary team' is well recognised in healthcare: a GP is great for the day-to-day, but a consultant is who you want for the complicated stuff; but then again, if you are given the choice of a GP who is 'alright' or a GP who really knows what they are talking about, you know who you would choose.
The philosophy at Keep On Your Feet is that we make sure that we know our stuff, and better than that, we give you the peace of mind that we know what we are doing. All you have to do is come in, and then we will guide you to your goals.

Mr Jeremy Ousey
Jeremy, the owner at Keep On Your Feet, is well known amongst colleagues for enjoying a healthy debate. So much so that, because he got bored being told he was too wet behind the ears, he initially decided to do further studies so he could justify telling colleagues to update themselves!
As time has moved on, he has collected five degrees - four at a post graduate level and, as it was put to him, is 'thoroughly weaponised'.
So, foot pain: beware!
With initial aspirations to be a foot and ankle surgeon, his mentor advised him to 'get really good at fixing things without surgery', so that surgery is always the final option. This is a view which mostly holds true to this day, however, this point of view is less about making surgery the last resort, actually about making it the best resort when the time comes.
His training in Sports Medicine, Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound, and the Theory of Podiatric Surgery means that he takes a multi-disciplinary approach to your care, all within the confines of a single consultation. This is especially useful as he draws knowledge in from working and training with colleagues from Rheumatology, Radiology, Orthopaedics, Dermatology and Physiotherapy (amongst other) backgrounds.
When his friends were asked to contribute to his biography, they said: "Once you get past the fact he's English, he's not too bad, really." Unfortunately, the other quotes were more flowery and unable to be used.
In his free time, he enjoys reading, dancing, and going back to his parents to play with their pugs: Ellenby and Bugsy. Seeing his parents isn't awful either.
