Such illnesses include diabetes, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease.
Many foot and ankle conditions can be successfully treated in our office. Including minor procedures, such as ingrowing nails, skin biopsies, and wart removals.
When surgery is indicated, it can often be performed as a same-day outpatient procedure at a local hospital. In addition, our doctors are available for inpatient surgeries on the foot and ankle.
