In this episode we speak to Consultant Podiatric Surgeon Ian Reilly about Injection Therapy. Ian discusses the evidence base for injection therapy not being perhaps what it could be, and the discourse between this and clinical outcomes. He also is refreshingly honest about how he uses it in his clinical practice in the context of a multi-modal approach to pathology. He tells us the top 3 conditions he injects, and the most common complications he encounters. Most importantly we spoke to Ian for 45 minutes and managed to refrain him to just one or two bad jokes, which for anyone who knows him well will agree is some feat.
