Hello, I have been suffering from severe pain in my big toe and will need to see a specialist now to see what one can do. I am happy to go private, as my insurance should cover it.

Do you have any recommendations for foot and ankle specialists in London? Searching the internet I came across 2 units, but I don't have any views about them:

www.londonfootandanklecentre.co.uk
www.wellingtonfootandankleunit.com

Thanks for your advice!

Thank you alypaly. I cannot properly bend my toe, cannot step on my toe anymore. It really hurts if i try to walk normally, even if i walk in flat shoes (which i have done for 3 months now). I am afraid i may have strained it when wearing high heels some time ago, and then it just got worse.
