What does a podiatrist do?

We can provide hospital care as well as foot & ankle care in all aspects.

Is A Podiatrist a Physician/Doctor?

We are extremely proud of the training our physicians have accomplished.

Does Insurance Cover Podiatrist Care?

Yes! The majority of our care is not considered elective and is not cosmetic. The primary focus is to keep you walking, healthy and prevent any future hospitalizations for your foot and ankle problems.

  • Podiatrist care is considered to be extremely cost-effective for both the nation and insurance companies.
  • Many studies prove that good foot care can result in exponentially greater reductions in hospitalization and disability costs.

Podiatric Services:

1) Diabetic Foot Care:

  • Diabetes can damage nerves in your feet and cause “peripheral neuropathy,” a condition that causes numbness, pain, or loss of sensitivity in your extremities. Diabetes can also affect your body’s ability to heal properly from cuts or blisters because of changes in blood flow to your feet.
  • Initial risk stratification and regular checkups with your podiatrist will protect your feet and keep them healthy.
  • If you notice any problems such as redness, blisters, cracks, or breaks in your skin, keep the area clean and schedule an appointment. Stop these problems before they get worse!

2)Fungal Toenails:

  • An infection causes fungal toenails underneath the surface of the nail.
  • The fungus can turn the nail yellow or brown in color while making it thicker. Debris can also collect beneath the nail plate and may make it painful to walk or run. (Fungal toenails may or may not be painful while they are still an active infection).
  • We can perform a test to identify the type(s) of infection and determine the best treatment option for your case.
  • Treatments may include prescription topical medication, prescription oral medication, and trimming of the toenails.
  • It is important to seek treatment for this condition to avoid complications from an infection and spread the fungus to other nails on your hands or feet.

3) Ingrown Toenails:

  • Ingrown toenails result when the nail grows sideways into the skin alongside the nail.
  • This can cause pain, especially when wearing tight shoes. It can also lead to an infection with redness, swelling, and pus drainage.
  • Treatment may include antibiotics if the area is infected.
  • Part of your ingrown toenail may need to be surgically removed in a procedure called a partial nail plate avulsion. In most cases, this should permanently prevent this problem from ever happening again.

4) Foot Surgery:

  • We have extensive training, including thousands of cases of hammertoes, bunions, tendon, and forefoot surgery.
  • Top trained & Board Certified surgeons in hammertoe surgery.
  • Top trained & Board Certified surgeons in bunion surgery.

  • We have extensive training, including thousands of cases of biopsies, soft tissue mass surgery, plastic surgery, scar excision, and various other techniques.
  • Top trained & Board Certified surgeons in foot dermatology & plastic surgery.

6) Foot Surgery: Toe, Foot & Ankle Fracture Repair:

  • Toe, foot & ankle fractures are surprisingly common injuries in your lower extremities. Impacts with heavy stationary objects can cause these. Treatment methods vary depending on how severe your injury is.
  • Top trained & Board Certified surgeons in foot trauma, toe injuries, foot injuries, and ankle fractures.

7) Flat Foot & Tendon Surgery:

  • We have extensive training, including thousands of flat foot cases, high arch foot, tendon ruptures, contractures, and various other techniques.
  • Top trained & Board Certified surgeons in flat foot & tendon surgery of the foot.

8) Sports Medicine:

  • Win or lose sports can sometimes cause injury to the best athletes.
  • Sprained ankles, torn ligaments, shin splints (leg pain), knee pain, low back pain, and other joint or muscle problems are common.
  • Running form, inappropriate or ill-fitting shoes can result in other issues, including corns, calluses, and Athlete’s foot.
  • Consistent self-care routines and regular visits with your podiatrist will help you maintain healthy, pain-free feet and treat small problems quickly so they don’t impact your sports performance or daily life.

9)Wound Care:

  • The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury.
  • Sometimes professional care in your home setting is the best – most efficient, and effective way to treat a wound.
  • Talk to your podiatrist to see if Home Health Visits for Wound Care are the right option for you.
