Learn about conditions treated and treatments offered at the Ankle and Foot Medical Center.
Because the ankle and foot area is considered among the most complex structures of the body, the podiatric experts at The Ankle and Foot Medical Center are experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of podiatric conditions.
Conditions Treated at the Ankle and Foot Medical Center
Our team offers general foot and ankle care, from the common to the complex, including:
- Diabetic foot
- Plantar fasciitis and heel pain
- Hammer Toe
- Arthritis of the foot and ankle
- Metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot) and Morton's neuroma
- Peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation)
- Plantar warts
- Pigmented lesions (moles) of the lower extremity
Each patient receives a thorough physical examination to determine if a foot or ankle condition is caused or affected by illnesses elsewhere in the body. For example, diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes) may affect the sensation and circulation to the foot and, in turn, complicate routine activities such as skin and nail care.
