Patients with diabetes are at extreme risk of injuries to their feet. If they do not take measures to protect their feet from cuts, scrapes, burns, and punctures, an infection can spread to the leg and require amputation. Our podiatrists work to cure infections and prevent future foot injuries in diabetic patients, ensuring your feet are protected for years to come.
Heel pain can cause people to become less active, make daily activities more difficult, and lead to a decline in both mood and health. Poor foot mechanics, irregular walking patterns, and improper footwear can all cause inflammation and swelling in the feet, leading to persistent heel pain. We find out the root cause of your heel pain and provide gentle corrective care to ease the pain and relieve the pressure.
Your feet take a beating, and that includes the skin and nails that protect them. Fungus can take root in the nails and between the toes, causing itching and flaking that is difficult to treat. Viruses can also attack the soles of the feet, resulting in plantar warts that recur every few weeks. Our podiatrists provide aggressive and comprehensive treatment to stop chronic foot and nail ailments from coming back.
Neuropathy goes far beyond a loss of feeling in the feet. A damaged nervous system can cause pain, tingling, burning, and many other problems that threaten a patient’s mobility. We offer a variety of interventions to ease the pain and discomfort of neuropathy, including laser therapy, footwear and walking devices, medication and pain relief, and even surgical options.
It may feel as though you have tried everything to relieve your foot pain. If conservative treatments have been ineffective, there may be a surgical option to correct your condition. Our podiatrists are board-certified in podiatric surgery, allowing us to remove ingrown nails and neuromas, correct painful bunions, and even perform reconstructive foot surgery after an accident or athletic injury.
