Nicholas (Nick) Cotton is the principal podiatrist and co-director of CBR Podiatry, with over 11 years of experience delivering exceptional foot care. Nick graduated with a First-Class Bachelor of Science Podiatry degree with honours in 2012. He has since honed his skills in various clinical settings in the UK and Australia, including hospitals, private clinics, aged care and community healthcare.

Nick is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive, patient-centred care – treating the underlying condition, not just the symptoms, and working side by side with his patients to help improve their quality of life. Nick offers services and treatment plans tailored to the individual, not just a one-size-fits-all approach.

While Nick enjoys all forms of general podiatry, his special interests are heel pain, ingrown toenails and orthotics. He particularly enjoys resolving chronic podiatry conditions that have previously proven difficult to treat. Nick undertakes continual professional development to offer his patients the latest evidence-based treatment options. He is also a long-term member of multiple podiatry organisations, including the Australian Podiatry Association and the special interest group Australian Paediatric Podiatry.
