Did you know that about one quarter of the bones in a human body are located in the feet and ankles? A large number of these ligaments and muscles can be affected by stress, overuse, injury and disease. Given the typical wear and tear that our feet take on a day to day basis, it's important to have a Forest Hills podiatrist who you can trust to treat any issues which might affect your feet.
If you suffer from issues affecting your feet, our office is an excellent resource. We offer a wide range of services, designed to address a sweeping range of conditions associated with the foot and ankle. As your Forest Hills podiatrist, our doctor is focused on providing each patient with the most advanced, thorough and compassionate care to help you return to your ordinary life feeling great.
Our services can be classified into multiple categories. The first category includes surgical treatments for various conditions including bunions, hammertoe, neuroma, arthritis of the foot and ankle, and pain in the ball of the foot (metatarsalgia). The next category of services our practice offers are geared towards diabetic foot care and handling advanced wounds. Our doctor also treats overuse injuries, such as fractures, ankle sprains, tendon injuries and stress fractures.
Our Forest Hills podiatrist addresses pain conditions including heel pain and plantar fasciitis, as well as flatfoot (fallen arches) and tendinitis. Many runners experience specific forms of overuse and painful foot conditions which our doctors treat. These often include sesamoid injuries, tendinitis, heel pain, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stress fractures. Our practice also offers relief from nail and skin conditions of the feet including warts, ingrown nails or the use of a laser on fungal nails. If you're experiencing a problem with your feet or ankles, come to the practice which specializes in podiatric care. To schedule your next appointment, call us today!
