Podiatrists are doctors who choose to specialize in foot care. Their training and education are focused on the treatment of foot issues. Many, such as myself, have surgical training along with other treatment skills to address foot conditions at all levels.
Underlying conditions of health such as diabetes can lead to problems with that diabetic patient’s feet. As a podiatrist, I am trained to work with this type of problem for the future benefit of the patient, perhaps avoiding unnecessary amputation. Or, if amputation is required, I have the skills to perform the necessary surgery and get the best possible end result.
Other conditions can include infection or fungus invasions which we’re prepared to address at Hoosier Foot and Ankle with tools such as laser at our clinics.
Some people are born with conditions such as clubfoot or flat feet that I have expertise in addressing and treating.
Sometimes activities such as sports, vigorous exercise and just plain walking around can end up in an emergency situation for what have been perfect feet. At Hoosier Foot and Ankle, we’re prepared to offer EPAT® (pulse activation/shock wave therapy), orthotics, other therapy or surgery to overcome the unpredictable things that can happen to active people.
