Medical and surgical podiatry at Saratoga Hospital

Podiatry focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions of the foot and ankle, including infections, skin and nail disorders, neuromas, ingrown toenails, plantar warts, foot deformities, injuries to bones, tendons and soft tissue, and problems resulting from illness.

Medical Podiatry

Medical podiatry specializes in those diseases and conditions that affect the lower extremities, which can cause complications in a patient’s posture, stance, and step. They can also address heel pain, plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, calluses, and deformities related to step. Additionally, our podiatrists can treat issues arising from illness, such as diabetic foot care and cardiovascular disease. Services include orthotics and in-office minor surgeries.

We offer our patients an outstanding board-certified physician, employing the most up-to-date equipment and advanced diagnostic techniques working within the full spectrum of podiatric care. Working closely with a patient’s primary care provider and other specialists, the team is committed to providing personal, compassionate care.

“I enlist my patients as part of their own patient-centered team, to treat the person as much as their feet. Together, we consider medical history, lifestyle, and find answers that are best for the unique needs of the patient to assure a healthy quality of life.”

Biomechanical Assessments

A biomechanical assessment reviews the movement, structure and mechanics of the foot, assessing the interaction of nerves, muscles and joints. Our podiatrist will look at joint range of motion and test muscles for strength, symmetry and muscular range of motion. The podiatrist will review your step and stance, and will consider your footwear. Among other things, this assessment and resulting treatment can address bunions, ingrown toenails, lower back or heel pain, poor posture, poor circulation from diabetes, foot deformities, and issues resulting from obesity.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetic foot care is about vigilance and prevention. Our podiatrists recommend patients take a proactive approach to diabetic foot care, rather than wait to see if a problem resolves on its own before seeking help. With proper care and maintenance, many of the most serious issues can often be avoided. The podiatrist will work with patients on footwear, wound care, medications, review nutrition and other preventive care options.

Radiofrequency Therapy

Radiofrequency therapy uses heat created by radio waves to deactivate specific nerves and prevent them from sending pain signals to the brain. This minimally invasive treatment can provide pain relief for months, and in some cases years, for patients with severe spine, knee, and hip pain.

In-office Surgeries

Some minor surgeries can be performed right in the office, such as treatment of infected ingrown toenails or other infections of the foot, nail and minor skin surgery, wart incision, and injections for heel spurs or ganglion.

Orthotics

After a thorough assessment and case history, our podiatrists can provide custom and prefabricated orthotics molded to the individual foot to decrease pain and improve function. Our podiatrists are happy to spend time on patient education, discussing how problems arise and how to avoid them in the future.
