Your specialist podiatry team

David provides expert podiatry care, biomechanical assessments and gait analysis with the prescription of orthotics to help manage biomechanical abnormalities, management of ingrowing toenails including the use of nail surgery under local anaesthetic, pioneering verruca treatments using microwave therapy and fungal nail treatment using cold laser technology.
David is the chairman for the Devon branch of The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists for 2013 - 2016; having previously held the position of Secretary.
A three times world champion bronze medallist, David represented Great Britain in Canada at the 2015 Dragon Boat World Championships, having previously represented Great Britain, competing at European level in 2012. He also enjoys agility training and hiking with his black Labrador on Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Martyn Butcher

Martyn has had a long and varied career within healthcare. He obtained his Batchelor of Science (with Honours) in podiatry from the University of Plymouth and was awarded “student of the year” on two consecutive occasions. He has a wide experience in all aspects of podiatry practice but has a particular interest in the treatment and management of skin and nail disorders of the foot, and in corrective nail surgery under local anaesthetic.
Martyn is also a Registered Nurse, and worked for many years within the NHS in a number of specialist clinical roles including managing a regional burn and plastic surgery centre and a
dermatology clinic. For 12 years Martyn was employed as a lead specialist wound care nurse practitioner. Unsurprisingly, he brings a wealth of experience and expertise in advanced wound
management with him to the services offered by the Exeter Clinic. He has published widely on a variety of healthcare subjects and has lectured at conferences and study days across the UK, Europe
and the US. In his free time Martyn enjoys watercolour painting, reading, watching movies and exercising his dog. Family life is extremely important to him, and he spends as much time as possible with his family.
