Podiatry Clinic Dr. António Luís Ramos
When it opened in February 2000, Dr. António Luís Ramos, Podiatry Clinic was a the first in its speciality in the city of Penafiel. “It was a success because of the immediate impact this clinic had on the population, exceeding our highest expectations. We think it is the result of people who are increasingly aware of how important the well-being of our feet is for our quality of life,” reflected António Luís Ramos, adding that continuous investment in training, technology and modern facilities are differentiating factors that have contributed decisively to the clinic’s success. “Attendance at twenty national and international conferences is proof of our continued investment in training”, the specialist said. In 1994, António Luís Ramos attended the first course in podiatry offered at CESPU (Instituto Superior de Ciências da Saúde do Norte).
In 2010, he obtained his Master’s in Children’s Podiatry, and is one of the few specialists in this field in podiatry in Portugal. With an unequalled dynamism, he is a healthcare professional with more than 15 years of experience. He dedicates a great amount of time to innovation, and is currently at the technological vanguard of podiatry treatments. Proof of this is his use of innovative equipment in podiatry treatments provided to the population (see the highlighted box). Notably, in July 2014, he was responsible for first introducing the S30 Podylas Laser into Portugal: “The S30 is a state-of-the-art laser, currently available in Penafiel and Porto, which allows for an innovative and definitive treatment of several foot conditions. Since its first use 10 months ago, more than 80 conditions have been successfully treated, resulting in a success rate on the order of 90%.”
