Podiatrist

Elizabeth Murtagh

In 2001, after graduating from a Bachelor of Science (Nursing), my nursing career focused around adult and neonatal critical care, gaining postgraduate studies in operating theatres, renal and vascular nursing and later moving into management.

My passion for podiatry was sparkled from caring for complex patients with diabetes, vascular and renal morbidities. Patients experiencing organ failure and lower limb amputation. 

 

I began practicing as a professional Podiatrist in 2020 after completing a Bachelor of Health Science/Masters of Podiatry Medicine. I am currently also employed in a private practice along side my mobile podiatry business.

Being empathetic and providing holistic individual care provides the solid foundation for my mobile podiatry service. My medical knowledge combined with an ongoing curiosity to learn about the latest trends will continue to define my success in podiatry.
