Some foot conditions not only cause patients discomfort and pain but are often unsightly and cause embarrassment. We treat many of these with cosmetic surgery.If you are suffering from pain or a deformity in your ankle or foot, we sometimes suggest reconstructive surgical intervention to help alleviate pain, reduce deformity, and restore function.
Diabetes is a disease that can cause serious problems with your feet in terms of circulation, balance, numbness, wounds and the ability to heal properly. It is extremely important for diabetics to have their feet examined several times a year by a doctor, to check for and treat any ulcerations or infections, and to prevent any further complications from occurring.
If you have a wound on your lower leg or foot that is not healing, it is very important to seek medical attention. We are experienced in treating many types of wounds that are caused by cuts, burns, trauma, infection, blisters, diabetic ulceration, etc. Wound care involves the proper cleaning, dressing and treatment of the affected area until the wound is completely healed.
Heel pain is most often caused by overuse, instead of an injury. Heel pain as a result of overuse can be due to many things, including wearing shoes with poor support, running too often, especially on hard surfaces, sudden turning of your heel, or landing too hard or awkwardly on your heel. Connective tissue that runs from the toes to the heel bone causes heel pain, also known as heel spur syndrome. There are many types of treatment for heel pain, depending on the severity of your pain, including anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and/or physical therapy.
These infections may start out as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, your nail may discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges, causing an unsightly and potentially painful problem. These infections should be treated as soon as possible. If left untreated, they can lead to dangerous blood infections.
The experience overall was very pleasant. The staff was friendly, efficient and welcoming. The doctor listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I never felt rushed. I had been there last year and I noticed they had added staff which made everything look like it ran smoothly. There was a person ahead of me but she was called in as soon as I sat down and I was called in about 5 minutes later.
Wonderful man, he addressed my issues promptly, absolutely no wait time.
