Information about Podiatry, Foot & Ankle Surgery

Overview

Get back on your feet

Many people suffer from foot disorders, whether it’s athlete’s foot, ingrown nails, or plantar fasciitis. Heredity, foot care habits, and medical conditions may compound problems. Because foot issues can lead to pain in other parts of the body, it’s important to get any concerns checked out by a foot doctor—formally called a podiatrist—before they progress.

Sometimes issues can be more serious, like a diabetic foot infection or broken ankle. Turn to our Podiatry, Foot & Ankle Surgery Department for complete foot care for adults and children. Our podiatrists and podiatric surgeons diagnose and treat the toes, feet, ankles, and legs. We offer full ankle replacements at our Ambulatory Surgery Center, saving patients a hospital stay. We can even offer shoe advice. The goal of our experts is simple: Relieve pain and get people moving comfortably again.

FAQs

What is the difference between a podiatrist, podiatric physician, and podiatric surgeon?
Podiatrists, podiatric physicians, and podiatric surgeons are all terms used to describe doctors of podiatric medicine (DPMs). Each is uniquely qualified among medical professionals to treat the foot and ankle based on their education, training, and experience.

The amount and type of surgical procedures performed by podiatrists may vary based on an individual’s training and experience, coupled with the goals and expectations of his or her patients.

Do I need a referral to see a podiatrist?
No, you can self-refer to any of our podiatrists. However, your insurance carrier may require a referral before covering appointments and treatments. Check with your insurance company to understand your specific benefits.
