Podiatry Services and Conditions Treated

Foot and Ankle Pathology

There are many conditions which affect the foot and ankle. Some, like athlete’s foot, can be treated with medication. Others may require an orthotic in shoes. Surgical correction may be warranted for deformities like a bunion or hammer toe.

  • Heel pain/fasciitis/spurs
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Onychomycosis (fungal nails)
  • Verruca (warts)
  • Ingrown nails
  • Bunions
  • Hammer toes
  • Arthritis

Foot and Ankle Reconstruction

Complex deformities require extensive surgery to correct the foot and/or ankle to enable normal ambulation and the wearing of shoes. These deformities may appear in the child or adult.

  • Pes planus (flat feet)
  • Pes cavus (high arch)
  • Foot and ankle deformities
  • Arthritis of the foot and ankle joints
  • Club foot
  • Congenital deformities

The Diabetic Foot

Perhaps the most serious complications of diabetes is the loss of circulation and reduced sensation in the feet. These conditions put diabetic patients at greater risk for foot ulcers and infections, which if left untreated may lead to amputation. However, many of these amputations can be prevented. Using a multidisciplinary approach, our podiatrists work with a team of medical and surgical specialists to manage both the systemic and local factors involved in limb salvage. An orthotist is present during clinic sessions to provide patients with the necessary shoe and insole modifications when prescribed.
