Our podiatric team specializes in a wide variety of advanced diagnostic and conservative therapies, and our doctors are also available to perform surgical procedures, if necessary.

Our orthopedics team specializes in all aspects of orthopedic care for musculoskeletal injuries throughout the body, including rotator cuff injuries, muscle strains, ligament tears, joint problems, and sports injuries.

Our entire medical team is dedicated to advancing the profession using the latest technology and research. With advanced services such as laser therapy, surgery, and custom orthotics, we work hard to offer our patients the highest quality orthopedic and podiatric care available—without losing our commitment to a family atmosphere, compassionate service, and personalized care.

Specialty services we provide include:


As a general rule, we consider surgery to be a last resort and will always attempt to address your problem conservatively first whenever possible. However, conditions that do not respond to conservative care and are impairing your daily life may need more aggressive intervention.

If it is necessary for your situation, rest assured you’ll be in the hands of an accomplished surgeon. Our team excels in a wide variety of advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive arthroscopy, total ankle replacement, microneurovascular surgery, foot and ankle reconstruction, and more.

Orthopedic Services

Orthopedics is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. In other words: bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, joints, and all those things that help you move!

Our orthopedics team can hep you deal with pain in your hip, neck, back, shoulder, hand, wrist, joints, and other areas throughout your body—including rotator cuff tears, ACL injuries, tendon and ligament injuries, and much more.

Diabetic Foot Care

If you have diabetes, you need a comprehensive foot care strategy. Diabetes can greatly increase your risk of developing severe complications in your feet and ankles, including neuropathy, foot wounds, and infections that (without treatment) may lead to amputation.

Our team provides excellent and comprehensive diabetic foot care services. This includes nerve and circulation testing, in-office wound care, peripheral neuropathy treatments, diabetic shoe fitting and dispensing, maintenance foot care, and more.

Foot Care for Children

Because they are still growing and developing, children’s feet are prone to different types of conditions and injuries compared to adults, and often require different treatment approaches. And of course, children themselves benefit from doctors who can put them at ease and describe their condition and care in ways they can understand!

We love working with children and families, and our team is trained to provide both gently and exceptional care for a full range of pediatric foot and ankle conditions, including flat feet, in-toeing, pediatric sports injuries, and more. Although kids do grow out of some conditions in time on their own, it’s best to deal with serious foot problems before they have a chase to worsen.

Custom Orthotics

A large percentage of common foot and ankle injuries and conditions are caused, at least partially, by faulty biomechanics. Simply put, most of us have feet that aren’t designed to handle the stresses of the modern world—and often shoes alone do not provide the full amount of support and cushioning we need.

Custom orthotics are designed to restore the natural alignment function of the foot and ankle and give your feet that extra bit of support they need to get through your day without pain—just like how a pair of glasses allows those with poor eyesight to see as clearly as anyone else! Unlike store-bought insoles, these are custom made to your exact foot shape, so they can perform much better and treat a wider variety of painful conditions.
