Podiatrists are medical specialists who help with problems that affect your feet or lower legs. They can treat injuries as well as complications from ongoing health issues like diabetes. You might hear them called a podiatric physician or doctor of podiatric medicine.
Podiatrists are doctors, but they don't go to traditional medical school. They have their own schools and professional associations. They also have "DPM" (doctor of podiatric medicine) after their names instead of "MD" (medical doctor).
Podiatrists can do surgery, reset broken bones, prescribe drugs, and order lab tests or X-rays. They often work closely with other specialists when a problem affects your feet or lower legs.
Our Doctors regularly treat long, painful nails and review foot health for patients that have chronic illnesses like Diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, Multiple Sclerosis, arteriosclerosis, and others. Our doctors also treat callouses to prevent potential ulceration.
Wounds occur for various reasons, and our doctors treat each individually. Preventive care can identify issues and treat more quickly. Our doctors are trained in up to date methods in limb preservation and will work with patients in prevention and treatment of wounds.
Medicare and some other commercial plans allow for dispensing of therapeutic shoes and inserts for Diabetic patients only. There is an extensive qualification process that require our trained staff to collaborate with a primary care provider.
Heel pain can be caused by a variety of sources. Our doctors normally will use an x-ray to identify any bony source of pain. Treatments can include stretching, physical therapy, a night splint, a walking boot, custom orthotics, or injections. Surgery is normally delayed until conservative treatment is attempted.
Our doctors are experts in painful acute conditions like ingrown toenails, gout, fractures, sprains, swelling, and sports injuries. We have x-ray technology on site to assist in diagnosing injuries.
Contact our office if you have heel pain, plantar warts, fungal nails, pain, bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, callouses, and any other foot or ankle issues.
Both doctors are on staff at LMH where they perform most of their surgeries. They both believe in conservative treatment and perform surgery only when it's necessary. Their extensive training in the foot and ankle and Board Certification make them experts at taking care of your feet in the office and in the operating room.
