leanne-sawolaLeanne Sawola, Podiatrist, BSc Hons, Mchs:

Leanne graduated from the school of Podiatry, Northampton University in 2010, with a BSc Honors Degree in Podiatry. She has worked as a Podiatrist for a nationwide company for three years before entering private practice at Oak Spring Clinic in 2014.

She has worked within the health sector for 15 years in a variety of settings including: elderly care, learning disabilities and hip and knee replacement rehabilitation. During her time working with patients rehabilitating from knee and hip replacements, she found the lower limb to be a complex and fascinating subject; encouraging her to pursue the study of the lower limb at university.

"Podiatry gives me the opportunity to work with people and help to relieve pain, give advice and prevent further leg and foot problems. I provide a professional and caring environment where no ailment is surprising and no question too silly."
