Excellence in Foot and Ankle Care

Diabetic Foot Care

The foot is especially affected by diabetes because it damages the nerves, which is called peripheral neuropathy.

Foot & Ankle Surgery

We have completely equipped operating room suites that are designed specifically for foot and ankle surgery.

Digital Radiography

X-rays have enhanced our ability to diagnose small bone spurs and fractures that would usually go unrecognized.

Physical Therapy

The goal of physical therapy is to gradually allow a person to increase the flexibility in their foot and ankle.

Custom Orthotics

Orthotics are created from impressions of a patient's foot and placed in shoes to maintain the correct foot position.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic Ultrasounds are non-invasive tests used to evaluate the soft-tissues of the foot and ankle.
