Common Disorders

We provide medical and surgical treatment of the following disorders:

Inflammatory condition of the Achilles tendon causing pain at the back of the ankle with walking and/or running activities.

Painful deformity resulting from gradual stretching of the tibialis posterior tendon as well as the ligaments that support the arch of the foot, often progressive.

Often a specific twisting or forceful injury resulting in sprain, tear or fracture.

Long-term sequela of ankle injury or deformity resulting in painful range of motion to the ankle.

Pain in the arch of your foot, often a result of tendon injury.

A deviation of the first metatarsal and often a painful bump on the inside of the forefoot. Pain can also be present at the great toe joint and bottom of the ball of the foot.

Diffuse swelling and redness to the foot or ankle followed by a change in the foot shape. Patients who develop this have a history of peripheral neuropathy

This includes routine evaluations and preventative care.

Sudden redness, swelling and intense pain to a joint in the lower extremity.

Stiffness of great toe joint that can be painful.

Contracture of the toes secondary to a muscle imbalance.

Pain in the bottom of the heel or arch, often worse first thing in the morning or after getting up from rest

Infections can occur after any type of break in the skin, resulting in redness, swelling and often pain. Ulcerations are often a result of increased pressure or friction leading to breakdown of the skin.

Ingrown toenails are very common and due to the penetration of the nail edges into the soft tissue in the skin. Nail changes, including thickening or discoloration, can be a result of trauma or nail fungus

A hairline fracture to the metatarsal bone secondary to excessive stress placed on the ball of the foot.

This can manifest as numbness and tingling or sharp shooting pain, which can broadly be termed neuropathy. Neuropathy can be a result of diabetes, alcoholism, compression or an unknown cause.

Swelling of the nerve that runs between the metatarsals as a result of compression or trauma.

This includes toe walking, flat feet, club foot and other changes in the pediatric foot.

Swelling, pain and possible dysfunction of the tendon on the inside of your ankle and into your arch. As this tendon begins to weaken, the arch can collapse and the foot gets progressively flatter.

This can include painful blisters, abrasions or dermatological reactions, including discolored lesions, corns and callouses.

These are often benign; some are painful, some are not. Common soft tissue masses include ganglion cyst, mucoid cyst, lipomas and plantar fibromas.

Sports add a different type of stress to the lower extremity, which can result in different sprains, strains and fractures.

Soft tissue lesions often on the bottom of your feet or toes as a result of a virus.
