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 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.
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.
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.
