For 20 years Robert Nekrasas D.Ch. has been running a full time practice at Ancaster Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre in the “village core” in Ancaster (a part of greater Hamilton). Robert’s extensive education and previous experiences uniquely positions him to provide exceptional services to his patients. Prior to becoming a Chiropodist and graduating from a 3-year Chiropody program in Toronto, Robert obtained a Medical Degree from the Medical School of Vilnius University in Lithuania. He also has a Canadian Certified Pedorthist designation.

Robert has noticed an increase in several types of feet conditions. Baby boomers of today continue to remain very active and many are noticing problems with their feet.

Ancaster Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre, located a few minutes away from downtown Hamilton and Dundas, offers clinical services ranging from routine foot care to complex biomechanical and gait analysis, soft tissue and nail surgery, and proper custom made orthotics, manufactured on site. We will examine your feet first and clearly explain what is wrong and what can be done to relieve the problem.

No two patients are alike. At Ancaster Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre we specialize in CONDITION SPECIFIC and ACTIVITY SPECIFIC custom made orthotics: custom made orthotics for heel spur, plantar fasciitis, etc. Different types of foot orthotics are better suited for different activities such as standing or walking on the job, and sport specific orthotics (e.g. golf, skiing). Long distance runners are in a class of their own. Their lower limb conditions may be very challenging requiring special orthotics. Our special focus is on DIFFICULT cases of orthotic treatment. These conditions usually are more “STUBBORN” and may require some extra fine tuning of orthotics or even a remake. In these cases, a new plaster cast may be taken and new orthotics manufactured at no extra cost to the patient.

Ancaster Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre manufactures 100% CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS starting from assessment, biomechanical exam, gait analysis, diagnosing, casting of the feet, prescribing and designing the prospected orthotics, manufacturing on site, dispensing and the fine tuning if and when needed. Next to Medical Doctors, Registered Chiropodists/Podiatrists are primary care practitioners with at least 3 years of post grad training. They can DIAGNOSE and TREAT foot conditions by therapeutical and surgical means, as well as PRESCRIBE biomechanical devices such as custom made orthotics.
