Foot Deformities

Foot deformities such as bunions and hammertoes may be caused by injury, genetics, or other factors. No matter which type of deformity you’re suffering from, many of these conditions can be corrected through surgery.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain and affects millions of people each year. A variety of treatment approaches are available for this condition, including surgery.

Foot Injuries

A foot injury can severely restrict your mobility and, if left untreated, sometimes result in a deformity or other long-term condition. Our podiatrists can help you find the appropriate treatment approach for your injury to ensure an effective, speedy recovery.

Ingrown Toenails

This common condition involves the corner or side of your toenail growing into the soft flesh surrounding it, leading to symptoms such as pain and swelling in the affected area. An ingrown toenail may be adjusted or removed to relieve painful symptoms.

Calluses

Corns and calluses develop in response to friction and pressure against your foot, creating a thick layer of skin that covers the affected area. They are very common and are often painless, but if they do cause pain or adversely affect your appearance, a podiatrist can remove them.

Foot Tumors

Various different types of tumors may form in your feet. Many of these growths may be benign, but if a mass begins to develop, it’s critically important to have it examined by a podiatrist.

Diabetes

Diabetes can lead to a range of foot complications, particularly nerve damage and numbness, which can make it difficult to determine when your foot has become injured. A podiatrist can help you manage diabetes-related foot complications and determine the right course of treatment for you.
