Highly trained specialists who help you get healthy and stay healthy
At Hurley Medical Center, our board-certified podiatrists provide effective medical care for problems of the foot and ankle, including conditions affecting the skin and nails, as well as structural conditions involving bones, tendons and muscles. Our Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) are highly trained in a broad range of treatments, including surgery, orthopedics and non-surgical procedures.
Our primary goals are to help our patients identify, prevent and treat problems early, get well quickly, and stay healthy over the long term. We follow a patient- and family-centered care model that takes each person’s unique medical conditions, family circumstances and other environmental issues into account, and provide treatment options that offer the best likelihood of a successful outcome. We understand that for many patients, foot and ankle problems and other issues can seriously affect mobility; in addition to treating patients in our offices and at Hurley Medical Center, we can schedule house calls for individuals who are homebound.
We treat the following conditions:
Seniors and individuals with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing problems with their extremities, including the foot and ankle. Our podiatrists have extensive experience working with elderly and diabetic patients. We also utilize the latest technology to treat the following conditions, among others:
- Athletic, sports-related and overuse injuries
- Bone spurs
- Cysts, ganglions and soft-tissue masses
- Fungal conditions of the foot, toe and nail
- Hammertoe and other deformities of the toe
- Neuromas and other nerve-related conditions
- Plantar fasciitis
Individual treatment plans designed around you
The treatment plan recommended for each patient will vary depending upon his or her overall health, the severity of the condition, and the patient’s ability to follow through with recommended post-procedure care. Treatment options include non-surgical interventions such as orthotics, braces and other biomechanical assistive devices, corrective surgery (both inpatient and outpatient), laser treatment, medications, or a combination of these methods. We emphasize ongoing and post-operative care, including, if necessary, physical therapy in our offices or through Hurley’s Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services.
A team approach that produces amazing results
Many disorders of the foot and ankle are the result of, or arise together with, other medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, neurological problems and other illnesses. We work closely with experienced physicians throughout Hurley Medical Center’s departments to ensure that podiatric problems are treated in coordination with other medical care. Since foot problems are often an early sign of other issues, we also regularly refer patients to appropriate medical providers.Together, we offer a team approach to the treatment and resolution of complex health issues.
