Franciscan Health offers advanced surgical and outpatient podiatric medicine services. Podiatric medicine helps those with any disorder of the feet or ankle ranging from injury to disease.
Podiatric services diagnose and treat an individual's foot and ankle problems. Podiatric medicine helps with a wide range of issues including foot or ankle pain due to an injury, biomechanical factors such as high arches or flat fleet or issues related to a disease such as diabetes. Our highly experienced podiatrists focus on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of each patient’s individual needs in order to provide the best quality of care.
Foot or ankle pain that cannot be relieved may be the sign of bigger problems. Even something as seemingly minor as an ingrown toenail can cause complications. Podiatrists can evaluate and treat the disorder while also recommending preventative care for future health.
Our podiatric team offers a comprehensive spectrum of bone, ligament, tendon repair, surgery and treatment options. If podiatric surgery is necessary, Franciscan Health offers many non-invasive, minimally invasive and surgical procedures in order to speed the healing process. Our skilled podiatric physicians also treat sports-related injuries and coordinate individual treatment plans with physical therapists for full-treatment. Orthotic services are also available.
