Foot Problems (And Treatments)

Our office provides a variety of podiatric services, ranging from routine and diabetic foot care, to custom-made prescription orthotics, to surgical intervention. Please note that this list is by no means a comprehensive guide of all the foot problems and conditions treated in our office. Patients are welcome to contact our office for any questions regarding podiatric treatment.

Functional Foot Orthotics

Prescription orthotics are custom-made foot supports designed to correct biomechanical imbalances. They allow for normal function and alignment of the foot and decrease many painful foot pathologies.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetic patients can be at greater risk for foot problems. It is very important to care for your own feet on a daily basis, and to visit a podiatrist regularly.

Corns and Calluses

Routine podiatric care—the trimming of nails, corns and calluses—as well as regular foot assessments– are important for foot and health maintenance.

Ingrown Toenails

We commonly offer two specific procedures for an ingrown toenail—a temporary wedge excision, or a permanent nail surgery, also called a matrixectomy.

Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is characterized by pain, inflammation and gradual degeneration of the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot.

Fungal Toenails

Fungal infections of the toenails are quite common and are treatable with a variety of medications.

Warts

Warts are a growth in the skin caused by a viral infection. Left untreated, they can grow and spread into clusters.

Neuromas

A neuroma refers to the thickening or swelling of a nerve in the foot.

Bunions

A bunion is an excess or misaligned bone in the large toe joint. They can arise from the growth of new bone or when the joint at the base of the toe shifts position.

Hammertoes

A hammertoe occurs when the toe assumes a crooked position. This happens most usually, although it may occur to any.
