Welcome to Parfitt Podiatry

Dr Patsy Parfitt, PhD, MSc, MPodA, HCPC – Clinical Director

Patsy, our lead Podiatrist, has worked in England, Australia and America. She currently works with her Associates in Elstree/Borehamwood and St. Albans.


Patsy works closely with Orthopaedic Surgeons to help realign the foot, leg and hip.


She specialises in Biomechanics (looking at the joints and how the muscles work), and Gait Analysis  (studying how the patient walks and the problems caused to the knees and back).


She is a Podo Paediatric specialist and believes that by treating children, particularly those with flat feet or pigeon toed can be treated very well in a few years with custom made orthotics/insoles.
