Testimonials

What is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists specialize in treating problems with the foot, ankle, and lower leg. People often refer to podiatrists as “foot doctors,” “podiatric physicians,” and “Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM).” Podiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat plantar fasciitis, bunions, torn Achilles tendons, and other injuries more precisely than other medical providers.

A DPM who has completed extensive postgraduate training can care for people in pain and operate on feet and ankles. Podiatrists practice helping people at any age with lower extremity injuries, perform surgery, cure wounds, and diagnose ailments.

Common Surgeries a Podiatrist Performs

Podiatric surgeons offer procedures to correct foot and ankle issues. Podiatrists can offer surgery on the foot, ankle, or lower leg, which can involve:

  • Corrective procedures for the foot and ankle.
  • Cyst removal
  • Achilles surgery
  • Heel surgery
  • Arthritis surgery
  • Nerve surgery in the foot (Neuroma)

What Is Minimal Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is a type of surgery that is done through a small cut and doesn’t need many stitches, if any. Podiatrists undertake the procedure by inserting specialized devices through tiny holes they cut, so the wound is minimal.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery.

• Minor surgical scars.

• A quicker return to work and regular activities; shorter hospital stays.

• Less blood loss during surgery.

• Surgery takes less time.

• Less pain afterward.

• There is a lower chance of getting an infection.

Common Services

Bunion Removal

Bunion Removal

If the big toe has a projecting lump at the base on the inside of the foot, you have a bunion (hallux valgus). Your big toe will shift toward the other toes over time because of a change in alignment, and pressure from the lump against your shoe may cause pain with every step. Podiatrists relieve the pain and repair the deformities brought on by a bunion with surgery.

There are three forms of bunion surgery:

• Cut and take away. Your doctor might advise you to remove a portion of the bone.

• Fusion. To stop the growth of your bunion and reduce stress on the toe joint, your doctor may advise a joint or bone fusion.

• Implants or artificial joints.

Achilles Tendon Repair

Achilles Tendon Repair

Your Achilles tendon is a fibrous cord that joins the muscles at the back of your calf to your heel bone. Podiatrists can evaluate and manage any tears or ruptures of the Achilles tendon.

To repair the tendon, your surgeon will make an incision behind your lower leg and sew the damaged area together. Depending on the damage, other tendons may be used to make the repair stronger.

 

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery

Heel and Arch pain are the primary signs of plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, a tissue in the foot that helps you walk and move. Many factors can cause plantar fasciitis, including your shoes, excessive standing, walking, or running, and the surfaces you walk on.

Two Types of Plantar Surgery

• Open procedures. Typically, either general anesthesia or a localized block with sedation is all you'll need. To expose your plantar fascia and separate it from your heel bone, your Podiatrist will make a 1- to 2-inch incision. Any bone spurs or entrapped nerves can also be removed.

• Endoscopic procedures. A slight sedative and local anesthesia is all it takes. Two tiny incisions, each less than half an inch long, are required for endoscopic surgery under your ankle bone. To release your plantar fascia, the surgeon will place a tiny knife in one opening and a small camera, or endoscope, in the other.

Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive Surgery

You’re a good candidate for reconstructive surgery if you have severe foot and ankle discomfort, a deformity, or have suffered a disease or accident that rendered those areas non-functional. Any abnormal condition should be checked by a podiatrist.

The main goal of reconstructive foot and ankle surgery is to fix problems with the musculoskeletal system, which comprises bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and connected structures like arteries and nerves. Podiatrists are adept at performing these sensitive surgeries.

Metatarsal Foot Surgery

Metatarsal Foot Surgery

The five long bones at the top of the foot, between the phalanges of the toes and the tarsal bones, are your metatarsal bones, or metatarsus. A bunion deformity is frequently the reason for metatarsal surgery, which is usually performed on the first metatarsal bone behind the big toe.

Morton's Neuroma Surgery

Morton's Neuroma Surgery

Typically, Morton's Neuroma affects the nerves that run between your third and fourth toes. A shooting, stabbing, or scorching sensation are Morton's neuroma's primary symptoms. Suffers may have the feeling that something is wedged in their shoe. Podiatrists can pin-point the exact issue.

To correct Morton's Neuroma, the surgeon will make a small incision at the top of the foot to remove the nerves in the ball area (a procedure known as a neurectomy). Surgeons may need to loosen the area's tight ligaments to access and remove the nerve.

Foot Fractures

Foot Fractures

Your surgeon will make an incision over the shattered bone for foot fracture surgery. They will then expose the bone to view the location of the fracture. The broken pieces of bone are straightened as best they can, then fastened with pins, wires, screws, or plates.

Ankle Surgery

Ankle Surgery

Conditions like tendinitis, arthritis, or broken bones in the ankle that don't heal with physical therapy or medication may need surgery. Podiatrists know this area very well.

The following conditions may require ankle surgery:

• Fractured ankle.

• Arthritis or immobility.

• Chronic or ongoing tendonitis or synovitis.

Orthotics

Orthotics

If you have very high or low arches or experience foot or heel pain, regular shoes aren't giving you the support you need. This can be a chronic problem as we age. Orthotics come in three varieties: rigid, semi-rigid, and soft. Your podiatrist will fit the correct device to your feet after taking measurements and show you how to correctly use them. This specialized practice often shows immediate positive changes.
