OUR COMPANY

Who We Are

Bruyere Foot Specialists started back in 2002 with a staff of 4 Chiropodists and 1 receptionist, and was located in the Elisabeth Bruyere Hospital. In 2007, the 4 Chiropodists each went their own way and Stefanie is now maintaining an amazing clinic with 1 Phone Coordinator, 1 Receptionist and 1 Clinical Assistant to help serve you with the best care possible.

A Chiropodist specializes in the assessment of the foot, and the treatment and prevention of diseases, disorders or dysfunctions of the foot by therapeutic, orthotic or palliative means. Stefanie will do everything you can to help your feet in a non surgical way.

Stefanie is a member in good standing with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario since 1987 (www.cocoo.on.ca)

OUR EQUIPMENT

Clean and sterilized instruments

Autoclaving machine

Do we use sterilized instruments?  Yes!

 

We take great care to make sure that any instrument that either contacts or cuts into your skin or nail is sterilized.  Autoclaving (sterilizing under high pressure using hot steam) is the only sure way to sterilize instruments.

 

Before our instruments are autoclaved we place the instruments in an ultrasonic bath to clean any debris in the crevices or grooves of the instruments.  After the ultrasonic cleaning, the instruments are dried and wrapped in packages that have a special piece of tape on each that changes color when the autoclaving is successful.

 

Soaking instruments in a disinfectant is not a guaranteed way to kill nail fungus or bacteria.

 

You will notice that our office opens a sterile package of instruments for every patient every time right in front of you, the patient.
