What We Specialize In
Bunions - A bunion is a bony protrusion on the outside of the big toe. It can usually be managed with a few simple lifestyle changes and physical therapy, but more severe cases can be addressed with a short surgical procedure.
Hammertoe - A hammertoe occurs when the second, third, or fourth toe is bent to the side at the middle joint. This condition is often caused by restrictive shoes and can causes pain when moving the affected toe.
Plantar Fasciitis - The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Plantar fasciitis occurs when this tissue becomes irritated and inflamed, causing pain in the heel.
Foot Fractures - A foot fracture is a break in any of the bones in the foot. It can usually be treated with conservative measures such as casting and physical therapy, but if necessary, it can also be treated surgically.
Morton's Neuroma - Neuromas are thickened portions of nerve that can cause discomfort and pain. Morton's Neuroma is the most common type of neuroma that forms at the ball of the foot. Symptoms include pain, numbness, or burning.
