Commonly referred to as plantar fasciitis, heel pain is a very common problem in our population. Heel and arch pain can last for as long as two years. Most people respond very well to treatment of the pain through the following methods:
Usually a hereditary condition, ingrown toenails can become problematic, being the cause of recurring pain and infection. For more than 35 years, we have helped our patients obtain permanent resolutions to this problem through ingrown toenail surgery.
A large part of our practice is devoted to the care and treatment of diabetic foot problems. We perform routine care, such as shaving corns and calluses and trimming toenails, as well as treating ulcers and infections.
Infections and amputations are prevented as we perform regular examinations of the circulatory system and nervous system. Shoe inserts, orthotics, and custom shoes are also offered to take weight and pressure off areas that are susceptible to irritation and ulceration.
Helping the elderly is our passion, as we offer them expert advice on proper footwear and assist them with both minor and major foot problems. Routine maintenance, such as toenail trimming and corn and callus care, is available for individuals with diabetes, compromised circulation, peripheral maladies, or those who have difficulty reaching their feet.
