All of us here at McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group are dedicated to providing patients with the best of care, and offer a variety of services to keep feet happy and healthy. From treatments for fungal nails and fractures, to care for diabetic feet and deformities, if you are struggling with foot problems, you’ve come to the right place! We combine cutting edge technology with personal care, and whether conservative options are best or surgery needs to be considered, our doctors have the skill and expertise to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible. Below are some of the common conditions we treat:
There are many conditions that can affect the skin on your feet, as well as your toenails. You may need help with dry, cracked heels, fungal infections like athlete’s foot, blisters, or growths like warts, corns, and calluses. Perhaps you’ll need to seek treatment for ingrown, black, or fungal toenails – no matter the condition, we’ll help your skin and nails stay clear and problem-free!
Participating in sports and other high-impact activities is great for your overall health, but does come with a risk of injury. Not to worry, though – we’re here to help! We commonly see patients for sprained or broken ankles, Achilles tendon issues, ball of foot and heel pain, turf toe, and more. With our expert care, you’ll be off the sidelines and back in the game in no time!
Diabetes can have debilitating effects on your feet, including nerve damage that leaves you open to injury without notice, and poor circulation which inhibits the healing process of wounds. This combination can lead to dangerous situations and even amputation. For this reason, it is vital that you have a plan in place to manage your condition and address issues early. We can help you keep your feet safe and healthy with treatments for neuropathy, peripheral arterial disease, ulcers, Charcot foot, and other problems associated with diabetes. With diligence and daily care, you can live a full and active life despite your disease.
We provide care for the elderly, children, and everyone in between! That means your whole family can be treated here for conditions ranging from bunions and hammertoes to flat feet and heel pain, in both adults and kids. We always opt for conservative treatments whenever possible, but if these are not enough to ease the pain, and surgery is determined to be needed, you can rest assured that you are in good hands, no matter what your age.
