Plantar warts are viral infections of the skin that are especially found on the heel and balls of the feet. These warts are common, contagious and easily spread from one part of the body to another. Although not dangerous, plantar warts can develop without pain but eventually become painful and uncomfortable. It is advisable to swiftly treat warts before they spread. There are various approaches for treatment and removal of the lesions and this can be tailored to a person’s needs and lifestyle.


An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail border begins to curve downward and penetrates through the skin or the nail bed itself. This can cause quite a bit of pain but may also commonly produce an infection called a “paronychia.” If left untreated, depending on your general health, the infection can become very severe and even require hospitalization and I.V. antibiotics. The ideal time to correct an ingrown nail is before it has the chance to produce an infection. This can be done with an in-office procedure using a local anesthetic. There are some preventive things that can be tried but, based on years of experience, some ingrown nails are just stubborn and have to be surgically treated.


A fungal infection can be present when nails begin to appear yellowish, thickened and/or brittle. People will also notice discoloration and debris underneath the affected nail(s). There are varying degrees of severity of the infection and the condition may be painless. The infecting fungal organism can be easily identified with reliable tests done by certified laboratories. It is not an easy condition to treat but some methods can be up to 70% successful. The treatments selected do depend on the age and health of a patient.


From use and abuse day-in and day-out, our feet and ankles are high stress areas that can develop many problems of varying severity. This includes  sprains, stress fractures, tendinitis, heel pain, shin splints, pinched nerves and other conditions. Some individuals are predisposed genetically  to problems due to their foot and body structure.  These include conditions like flat feet, Hallux Valgus (Bunions), limb-length discrepancies, mallet and hammertoes, and many others that can be painful and interfere with the ability to function comfortably with daily activities.  All these issues can be treated with conservative (non-surgical) and /or surgical means.  It may also require a team approach where referrals may be necessary to Physical Therapy, Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurologists, etc.  However, most of these conditions can be treated in our office.


Our doctors have a special interest in diabetic foot care. They  work closely with a team of specialists and Wound Care Centers.


Our doctors are busy foot surgeons that perform numerous procedures like bunionectomies, hammertoe corrections, excisions of benign and malignant tumors, and heel surgery.  These types of surgeries are done in the Hospital or Surgicenter, mostly with a combination of a local anesthetic and I.V. sedation.  The sedation component is given by the Anesthesia Department with careful intraoperative monitoring of the patient’s vital signs.
