What Does a Podiatrist Treat?
Fact: Over 75% of Americans experience foot health problems in their lives but only 12% who have foot ailments have visited a podiatrist.*
Many people are not aware of all the types of services a foot specialist, or podiatrist, can provide. It’s not unusual for people to just live with some types of foot pain and problems because they’re not aware that a podiatrist can provide relief. I’ve had friends, acquaintances, patients and even doctors and other medical professionals say to me, “I had no idea that you provided that service!”
As with other medical professions, some podiatrists tend to avoid some of the more routine treatments like seniors’ nail care. I have always liked that aspect of my practice but also enjoy the challenges of employing the most current surgical techniques to relieve my patients’ painful conditions such as bunions, heel pain and misaligned toes.
