Common Treatments

At our clinic, we specialize in a range of advanced foot treatments designed to address various podiatric issues effectively. These treatments include:

BunionsIf non-surgical options fail to provide relief, surgery, such as a bunionectomy, may be considered to remove swollen tissue and correct the toe's position. Surgery is usually delayed for children until skeletal maturity is reached.

Custom Orthotics: Custom orthotic devices are specially designed shoe inserts that provide support, alignment, and cushioning to address various foot and ankle conditions, such as flat feet, high arches, and overpronation. These personalized orthotics are tailored to the individual's foot anatomy and biomechanics, helping to relieve pain, prevent injuries, and improve overall foot function.

Fractures: Fractures are typically diagnosed through X-rays, bone scans, or MRI/CT scans for smaller fractures. Non-surgical treatments may include ice, immobilization with walking boots or casts, and rest. Surgical options like open reduction and internal fixation may be necessary for more severe fractures.

Gout TreatmentDiagnosing gout involves blood tests and joint fluid analysis to confirm the presence of uric acid crystals. Treatment options include medications like NSAIDs, colchicine, corticosteroids, and xanthine oxidase inhibitors to manage pain and prevent further attacks. Lifestyle modifications such as maintaining a healthy weight, dietary changes, and staying hydrated can help reduce the frequency of attacks.

Hammertoe CorrectionIf conservative treatments fail or hammertoe is severe, surgery may be necessary. Surgical options range from removing a small piece of bone to repositioning the toe or correcting alignment issues with tendons, ligaments, and joints. Most surgeries are outpatient procedures, followed by physical therapy for toe reconditioning.

Heel PainOur priority is finding the right treatment for your heel pain. Diagnosis begins with a thorough assessment, including symptom review, medical history, physical examination, and possibly imaging tests. Based on the diagnosis, your doctor will recommend suitable treatment options. Treatment for heel pain addresses inflammation, pain relief, and the underlying cause. Methods may include ice therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, footwear evaluation, calf stretches, and taping. We also perform TOPAZ minimally invasive heel procedures. TOPAZ coblation is a quick, simple, and minimally invasive medical procedure that's typically covered by most insurers. 

Ingrown Toenail TreatmentNail issues are common occurrences, especially concerning toenails, which are prone to injuries from accidental bumps or minor infections. Despite the discomfort often associated with toenail problems, most issues can be effectively treated. In some cases, simple over-the-counter or home remedies suffice, while others may require attention from a podiatrist.

At our clinic, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized foot care, utilizing state-of-the-art treatments to help our patients achieve optimal foot health and function. Our team of experienced podiatrists is committed to delivering high-quality care and ensuring the best possible outcomes for every patient.
