Many foot and ankle problems that patients experience require unique care. From simple medical treatments to advanced surgery, podiatrists are able to offer patients specialized care for ankle and foot health.
In the medical field of podiatry, podiatrists and podiatric surgeons (or DPMs) are doctors exclusively trained in the treatment of the ligaments, bones, muscles, and tendons of the ankles, feet, and toes.
Our surgical podiatrist has extensive training to care for patients who experience foot and ankle disorders such as:
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Diabetic foot problems
- Flat feet
- Fractures and trauma of foot and ankle
- Heel pain
- High arches (cavus deformity)
- Ingrown toenails
- Soft-tissue masses
- Sports-related injuries of the foot and ankle
- Sprains and ligament injuries
A consultation with a podiatric doctor is the best way to differentiate between a severe foot or ankle condition and minor foot or ankle injury.
