Foot and ankle problems are among the most common health conditions people experience, ranging from a stubbed toe to ingrown nails to serious conditions associated with other health concerns. Our feet and ankles are fundamental to our lives: They do a lot of work, we depend on them for most of each day, and they can derail our lives and our usual activities when something goes wrong. Almost everyone has experienced a blister, bunion, sprain or other annoyance, while others have needed major attention for a severe or complicated problem.
Thankfully, foot and ankle problems have many solutions – ranging from the simple to the complex – and we are highly skilled in finding those solutions and following through. We encourage patient education and early intervention, non-invasive therapeutic treatment, and effective conservative surgical procedures if necessary. We offer the latest in treatment, including laser surgery, endoscopy and advanced trauma care. People frequently suffer needlessly from an untreated foot problem, and we are dedicated to bringing them relief. We also are proficient and patient-centered in providing and following up on care for serious conditions. We take pride in maintaining long-term relationships with our patients.
Many foot and ankle problems can be solved without surgery, and we offer a full range of non-invasive methods that include the latest in podiatric expertise and technology. One such offering is extracorporeal shock wave therapy for treating chronic heel pain, in which strong sound waves promote healing. We also apply more basic knowledge, such as assessing the patient’s shoe selections, promoting effective foot care regimens, and providing advice on exercise.
