Our specialty-trained podiatrist at our Foot & Ankle Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics is a recognized and respected expert in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of foot and ankle injuries and conditions.
Pain and problems in your feet, toes, heels, and ankles can severely impact your daily life. Injuries, diseases, nerve disorders, diabetic issues, and deformities are all common sources of foot and ankle pain, numbness, and mobility issues. Patients experiencing these symptoms can gain relief through a number of treatment options, which range from conservative, nonsurgical care to reconstructive surgery.
Patients who suffer from foot pain or ankle pain may visit a primary care physician or a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) if they have pain or mobility issues based on injuries, conditions, or deformities in their feet, toes, heels, lower legs, or ankles. Podiatric medicine, or podiatry, is the medical field that exclusively focuses on these areas, and doctors who specialize in podiatric medicine are called podiatrists. These physicians have medical and surgical expertise in nonsurgical foot and ankle care as well as foot and ankle surgery and podiatric surgery. Podiatrists offer consultation and patient care for everything from diabetic neuropathy and heel pain to foot fractures and bunions.
If you're suffering from a foot or ankle injury or condition, it may be time to visit our podiatrist at Tri-County Orthopedics.
