“Nearly 8 out of 10 Americans have experienced foot pain — and those who suffer from a chronic foot issue are significantly more likely to have pain in their knees, back, hips or other parts of their body”- American Podiatric Medical Association
All of the parts of your feet and ankles are designed to support your weight and help you stand, walk, and run. Pain in these areas can limit your mobility and some health conditions can damage your feet and ankles if they are not treated properly. We see a wide spectrum of common and uncommon foot and ankle problems. Some, like diabetic neuropathy, are chronic and require a lifetime of care and attention. Many, like bunions, fractures, and arthritis, are destined to worsen over time and require early intervention for the best outcomes. Even extremely common issues like Athlete’s foot, plantar fasciitis, and toenail infections require medical attention for effective relief from your symptoms.

Even extremely common issues like Athlete’s foot, plantar fasciitis, and toenail infections require medical attention for effective relief from your symptoms. A podiatrist is the right doctor to see if you suffer from conditions that affect the feet, such as:
We offer an array of treatment options including anti-inflammatory medications, injections, stretching exercises, physical therapy, over-the-counter inserts, custom foot orthotics, night splints and surgery, if needed.
We treat all types of toenail problems including fungus, ingrown nails, plus nail issues related to an injury or deformity. In addition, we treat skin conditions of the feet ranging from fungal infections, psoriasis, calluses and warts.
Foot pain is not normal and has many causes including arthritis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, sprains, strains, bursitis, neuromas and other deformities. Whatever condition you may have, we can treat it surgically or non-surgically.
We offer the most conservative treatments for bunions, hammer toes and tailor’s bunions. If surgery is required, these deformities are easily corrected on an outpatient basis, keeping you as ambulatory as possible.
Since early intervention and prevention are essential for proper care and treatment, we see diabetic patients on a routine basis. We provide nail care and treat pre-ulcerative calluses, as well as check and care for diabetic neuropathy and to ensure that circulation is stable. If any problems are found, we develop an individualized treatment plan. We also assist diabetic patients with orthotics, diabetic shoes and insoles, if required.
