We are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of both chronic foot and ankle conditions and acute trauma. You will have thorough evaluation so that we may develop the correct diagnosis. A plan of treatment will be offered. Some problems can be managed conservatively, which may include physical therapy, foot orthoses, bracing or splinting. If necessary, our surgical specialists will recommend and perform the most appropriate surgical intervention.
In order to best understand your problem, you may have to have appropriate xrays performed. Even if you have had xrays, they may not be adequate for a proper evaluation. We ask that you bring a pair of shorts with you for your exam. If you have inserts or braces, or if you are an athlete, or require special foot gear for work, please bring these particular items with you for your exam.
