Foot and ankle surgeons treat a wide variety of common podiatric maladies. Many of these problems can be handled with conservative treatment options to include: footwear modifications, orthotics, palliative debridements, prescriptive medicines, to include topical and oral. Many problems respond very well to physical therapy and rehabilitation. Our physicians pride themselves in exhausting all aspects of conservative care before suggesting surgical options.
