What is Podiatry?

As medical specialists, podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. They can specialize in many fields, including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics (children), and diabetic care. 
With more education and training specific to the foot and ankle than any other healthcare provider, foot and ankle surgeons are the leading experts in foot and ankle care today. Their unmatched education and training includes four years at a postgraduate podiatric medical school, and a minimum three-year foot and ankle surgical residency program approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education.

Foot and ankle surgeons diagnose and treat all conditions of lower extremities including: 

  • Ingrown toenails
  • Fungal infections of the skin or toenails
  • Painful callus or corn formation
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Ankle sprains
  • Ankle instability
  • Heel Pain & plantar fasciitis
  • Foot and Ankle Trauma (lacerations, cuts and fractures)
  • Flat foot
  • Diabetic foot care and complications
  • Ulcers and Limb Salvage

  • Neuropathy
  • Foreign body injuries
  • Pediatric Foot Disorders

When should I see a podiatrist?

No matter what your age or foot problem, you can turn to us for prompt, effective care. See your podiatrist for relief or corrective treatment at the first sign of foot trouble.

But everyone has foot pain, right? How do I know I really need a podiatrist?
You’re right—most people suffer from some kind of foot disorder or another, from athlete’s foot to ingrown nails, hammertoes, corns, etc. Tight-fitting or high-heeled shoes only make matters worse, while heredity, poor foot care, injuries, or medical conditions can also compound problems.

Keep in mind that problems in your feet can lead to pain in your hips, knees and lower back. So again, if you are at all concerned with issues of the feet, and want to keep your whole body in a strong state of health, we highly recommend you make an appointment with one of our podiatrists today.

Our MediCenter podiatrist is board certified by the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry in Primary care setting. This means we have gone the extra mile in providing a service people can trust.
