Painless Podiatry Q & A

What is podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine that specializes in the care of feet, ankles, and the lower extremities. Most podiatrists have at least 10 years of medical education and surgical training, and have earned a doctorate degree in podiatry.

Podiatrists treat people of all ages and stages of life. Typically, podiatrists diagnose and treat foot and ankle problems, perform restorative surgery, fit men, women, and children in orthotics, and prescribe physical therapies to help alleviate pain and improve balance and walking position.

The Complete Foot and Ankle doctors use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment like X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs to determine the root cause of your foot or ankle ailment.

Using innovative and painless surgical and non-surgical modalities and techniques, the podiatrists treat all foot conditions, including Achilles tendon, flat foot, hammertoes, bunions, calluses, ingrown toenails, heel spurs, and diabetic feet.
