What We Do
The goal of the Podiatry Department at WESTMED is to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from foot and ankle conditions. Our specialists partner with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that will enable them to walk without pain, wear shoes comfortably, participate in
exercise and leisure activities, and prevent serious complications, such as wounds or amputation.
We are available to treat any ailment related to the foot or ankle, including:
- Achilles tendonitis
- Athlete’s foot
- Complications brought on by diabetes, such as ulcers or peripheral arterial disease
- Flat feet
- Foot and ankle fractures or sprains
- Foot deformities
Outpatient Procedures in an Ambulatory Surgery Setting
- Minimally invasive endoscopic plantar fasciotomy (EPF) and radiofrequency lesioning for heel pain.
- Surgical correction of bunions, hammertoes, Morton’s neuroma and flat feet
Why We Are Different
Trained in Sports Medicine, our podiatrists treat traumatic injuries to the ankle and foot, including fractures and sprains. We have on-site X-ray, ultrasound, and CT scans, which allow diagnostic care to be centralized in one location and reduce the need for emergency room visits.
If orthotic inserts are recommended, we work with local vendors to measure and outfit patients. We also provide braces for pediatric patients when needed.
