Toenails that grow into the surrounding skin can be treated with at-home methods, but if they become severe, a surgical procedure may be required. For severe pain or recurring issues, we can perform a procedure to remove part of or the entire nail.
Our team of podiatric physicians provide expert care for wounds of the lower extremity that may be a result of vascular, diabetic, traumatic, or neuropathic causes, as well as preventative care for at-risk amputations.
Sprained ankles are an unfortunately common occurrence. If you have weakness, prolonged or recurring pain, and significant bruising that a few days of ice, rest, and elevation doesn’t heal, you should book an appointment with one of our podiatrists.
Foot and Nail Fungus
Foot and nail fungal infections are extremely common and can be a huge nuisance. Luckily, we offer laser treatment that clinical studies show kills toenail fungus with a single treatment. The treatment is highly effective, safe, and offers fast, proven results.
Flat Foot Deformities
20-30 percent of Americans have some degree of flat feet. Although flat feet don’t always require treatment, especially if there aren’t any other mobility or foot pain issues, if you are experiencing prolonged pain that is impacting your daily life, you should have your feet evaluated. We offer non-surgical care for flat feet, (especially if you seek help early), as well as surgical options for certain severe cases.
Foot fractures are one of the most common injuries that podiatrists diagnose and treat. Whether it’s a minor crack or a clean break, our experienced staff will evaluate your condition and provide proper treatment to help you heal.
Diabetic Ulcers and Foot Infections
The best way to treat a diabetic ulcer is through prevention, which is why we want to work with you on a preventative care plan. If you have an existing ulcer or foot infection due to diabetes, we will evaluate your condition and take measures to prevent the infection from spreading.
Hammertoes are a toe deformity that may progress as you age and cause you pain. After an evaluation, we will help address the symptoms and limit or stop the deformity from progressing with conservative care measures. If necessary, our podiatrists may recommend surgical options.
The two primary causes of heel pain are:
Achilles Tendinitis: When the Achilles tendon is overstressed from repetitive activity or excessive force, tiny tears develop in the tissue that worsen without time to heal. We offer a range of treatments to get you back on your feet.
Plantar Fasciitis: The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue running from your heel to your toes on the bottom of your foot that is meant to absorb shock. Unfortunately, it may tear with excessive force. We can help you get back on your feet with conservative treatments or surgical procedures, depending on the severity.
