  • Arch Pain


    There are many causes for arch pain. It is important that you are properly assessed and a diagnosis is made in order to get the most appropriate treatment. Our team will take the time to get a thorough history, conduct an appropriate work-up so that you can improve the quality of your day-to-day life.

  • Bunions


    Bunions (aka Hallux valgus) is when the first metatarsal drifts outwards and creates a deformity which can be painful, make shoes difficult and be a darn nuisance to your daily activity.  Our Board Certified Podiatric Surgeons can help you surgically repair this bunion. Depending upon the procedure and your preference, this can be done under sedation in an ambulatory surgical center, under local anesthetic in an office, or if medically necessary in a hospital setting.  Sometimes, surgery is not required. Our podiatric physician and surgeons can give you the necessary work-up and information in helping you decide which option is best for you!

  • Bursitis


    Bursitis is inflamed tissue, which can occur in various parts of your body. This can be treated via physiotherapy, off-loading, and injections. Your podiatrist can help you with this problem

  • Calluses


    Calluses and corns- these are often secondary to pressure from inappropriate footwear, poor biomechanics or structural changes. Your podiatrist can help you with shaving these to reduce the pressure, then offering you options to help reduce the risk of recurrence.

  • Comprehensive Foot Surgery


    Our surgeons have completed surgical residencies with specialization in the foot. In additional to board certification and   fellowships they take on-going continuing medical education to update on the newest techniques to make your surgery as successful as possible.

  • Congenital Deformities (treatment & correction)

    The early recognition and treatment of congenital foot deformities is essential in order to ensure optimal functioning of the foot.

  • Corns


    If pressure becomes concentrated in a small area, a ‘hard’ corn may develop. Sometimes the pressure of the corn or callus may produce inflammation, which can result in acute pain, swelling and redness.


  • Flat Feet


    Flat feet are often associated with excessive pronation, which is the action that causes the foot's arch to descend down and inward (flattening) as the foot strikes the ground.

  • Fractures


    A fracture is a break in the bone. Fractures can be divided into two categories: traumatic fractures and stress fractures.

  • Hammertoes


    Hammertoe is a condition in which the toes of your feet become contracted into an upside-down "V" shape, causing pain, pressure and, often, corns and calluses. Hammertoe can develop on any of the toes, but generally affects the middle three toes, most often the second toe.

  • Heel Spurs (heel pain – plantar fasciitis)


    Many patients describe this pain as "a hot knife being pushed into the bottom of my heel." If left untreated, pain can become constant, even hurting when at rest.

  • Ingrown Toenails


    An ingrown nail is the result of a nail growing into the skin that surrounds it.  Signs and symptoms of ingrown toenails can vary quite dramatically, typically an incurvation of the nail or a spike of nail (spicule) pressing into the skin of the nail border

  • Metatarsal Disorders


    Metatarsalgia is one of the more commonly seen complaints in any podiatry practice. Common treatments for the disorder include ice, removable metatarsal pads, antiinflammatories, injected steroids and physical therapy.


  • Nail conditions ingrown, thickened, black & blue nails

    An ingrown nail is the result of a nail growing into the skin that surrounds it.


    A black-and-blue nail is usually caused by sudden or repetitive injury to a toe.


    Abnormally thick or crumbling nails may be caused by injuries, pressure from shoes, fungal infections, or conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, or vascular disease.

  • Skin lesions & other problems


    Feet can suffer some of our worst skin complaints and if untreated can often go on for years hidden away by our shoes. Cracked heels, callus, tinea and corns are some of the most common, embarrassing and sometimes painful skin complaints we see. Trauma, infection, skin disease, and even walking can cause changes on the skin of our feet.The good news is that these and many other skin conditions can often be treated with a little work from your podiatrist as well as the right products and advice.

  • Sprains foot & ankle


    A sprained ankle is a very common injury. Approximately 25,000 people experience it each day. A sprained ankle can happen to athletes and non-athletes, children and adults. It can happen when you take part in sports and physical fitness activities. It can also happen when you simply step on an uneven surface, or step down at an angle.

  • Comprehensive Foot Surgery


    When you have problems with your lower extremities, you need to turn to a podiatric foot and ankle specialist who listens and responds. You also need an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs.

  • Congenital Foot Deformities (treatment & correction)

    There are a multitude of congenital deformities that can occur in the feet. Some are very common and others are more remote. They can frequently be corrected with conservative care, such as splinting, casting, and various exercises over a period of time. Those that are not resolved by conservative measures can generally be surgically improved or corrected. A few conditions should be left for surgical resolution after maturity occurs.
