Dr Omar Sawan
I am a podiatrist at KidMed Medical Centre. A podiatrist is a lower limb and foot & ankle health expert.
I am passionate about all aspects of conditions affecting the lower limbs at a young age, from typical growing pains to the complex genetic complications and everything in-between. Having my own children, I know how emotional it can be to have a child complaining of pain, especially when there are no obvious signs or symptoms.
The reason why I became a podiatrist was because, when I was young, my mother took me to see a podiatrist after a few years of complaining about lower leg pains. I saw how one visit made a large difference to my complaints, and since then it has been my ambition to help children with similar concerns.
After obtaining a master’s degree in Podiatric Medicine, I have worked as a podiatrist in many parts of Australia, from Metropolitan Sydney to Alice Springs. I combine comprehensive assessment with the best evidence base treatments, modern technologies, and highest quality materials, to ensure that your child receives the best possible care.
