We’re so glad you’ve chosen McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group to take care of your feet. Welcome to our office! Honesty and fairness are something we care a great deal about. We think our office style reflects that. Our space is professional, clean, and entirely eco-friendly—and we’ll have you seeing green in more ways than one. We’re not here to take advantage of your pocketbook; we just want to give you what it takes to get better.

Let’s stop right here to acknowledge something: pain in your feet is not normal. We want you to know that something can be done for your discomfort. In fact, you can improve and even reverse symptoms, even from debilitating conditions like neuropathy. If that’s something you’ve never heard before but want to know more about, you’re welcome at our office anytime. With an incredibly well-trained and highly certified staff, we take pride in offering the best answers for the range of questions you might have about your feet.

We offer a full range of podiatry services and we’re really passionate about our neuropathy center, orthotics testing, ultrasonic diagnostic equipment, neuropathy sensitivity testing, medical nail care, laser therapy for pain and nail fungus, and emergent care. When you visit us, expect to be treated with the most modern, up-to-date equipment out there; from X-ray technology to lasers to ultrasound—we have it all. Surgery is another option that we can provide for you. The doctors at McDowell Podiatry are able to treat any foot or ankle condition. One thing’s for sure: We’re dedicated to the learning process and understand that by embracing developing technologies, we can help you get back on your feet and treat your pain. 

So, let’s walk through what you’re here for. We treat a lot of patients, including those in the greater Sacramento area, with neuropathy, fungal nails, and sports injuries, and we also perform a lot of reconstructive surgery, general foot care, and orthotics testing. Any age range is welcome. In fact, you might be surprised to know that a lot of these problems don’t discriminate among the ages, especially when it comes to heel pain. Our other specialties include nail trimming, same-day service for traumatic injuries, and degenerative arthritis.

With a practicing career that spans over 30 years, Dr. Brian McDowell is a board-certified podiatrist who has developed a friendly and trusted reputation among the Carmichael community. He specializes extensively in nerve pain, pediatrics, plantar fasciitis, and trauma.
