History of Foot-forward
After graduating from the London Foot Hospital, Lenia Papadopoullou-Maliotou returned
to Cyprus and set up a podiatry practice in Nicosia in 1969. At that time people
were unaware of the existence of this profession and this made the beginning of
Lenia’s career very difficult. She had put much effort in informing the medical
profession in length of the scope of podiatry. Gradually people valued the benefits
they could have and the practice attained a momentum. By 1980 she had already moved
to new premises built and decorated for the current needs of the practice. In 1994
Lenia was joined by her daughter Diamanto Maliotou, a podiatrist who graduated from
University of Brighton and the practice started evolving in different directions.
In 2004 Foot-forward moved in their current premises in Acropolis area; new building,
new laboratories and bigger space. In 2007, Despina Theodorou, a podiatrist who
graduated from University of Southampton, joined the team. In September 2010, Demos
Voskarides, another podiatrist who graduated from the University of Wales Institute,
also joined Foot-Forward, so currently foot-forward employs 4 podiatrists
and three additional staff members for the laboratory and the reception. Students
from all over the world, visit to spend some time with us, for their personal development
within a clinical environment which uses latest technology. Foot forward is very
dynamically present with scientific studies both in Cyprus and Internationally,
in various fields especially in Diabetic Foot.
Foot-Forward podiatric services are expanding and trying to help and serve as many
people as possible within always the podiatric scope of practice. They have developed
a footwear centre and they can accommodate people with deformities, various diseases
