Cecilia Brennan


Why podiatry?

Cecilia always knew she would end up in the health professional world. Helping others by improving their quality of life provides one with meaning and self-worth. Podiatry may seem like a peculiar choice to most, but to Cecilia it offers a vast career and future. A podiatrist gets to treat the very young to the very old. All aspects of foot health are covered including skin & toenail conditions, pain & injuries and foot conditions resulting from chronic diseases such as diabetes.

The future of podiatry is bright. Expanding technologies and ongoing research keep Cecilia engaged while providing the Belconnen and Canberra community with safe and effective options.

Cecilia’s mission is to resolve the foot, ankle and lower leg concerns of the Canberra & surrounding community in a personable and collaborate environment. Cecilia’s vision is to be the Podiatrist you want to recommend to your family and friends.
