Our podiatrists understand foot pain and the impact it can have on daily lives. Our PerfectFeetCare Centers provide comprehensive diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitation services for foot and ankle injuries and conditions. The foot is one of the most complex parts of the body and can cause a number of ailments, pain conditions and complications. Our podiatrists treat foot conditions in children and adults including heel pain, arthritis, sports injuries, trauma, diabetic and geriatric foot problems and disorders as well as bunions, calluses, corns, hammer, claw and mallet toe and foot conditions.
We regularly see patients whose work requires them to stay on their feet for more than eight hours a day: teachers, skilled laborers, police officers and retail and factory workers. Foot pain experienced on the job or during recreational activities can become progressively worse over time. Our goal is to keep them on their feet and out of pain.
