Philosophy and Mission of Practice
In my practice, I have always tried to treat the person, not just the condition, by getting to know their history, tolerance level, goals for care and activity level. I take time to talk to each of my patients and build a relationship around regular podiatric care, and together we choose a treatment plan that is best suited for their lifestyle.
Treatment will begin with biomechanical evaluations and may include regular podiatric care, physical therapy, orthotics and surgery if necessary. Diagnostic tools include X-Ray, Ultrasound, C.T. Scan, MRI, Bone Scan and Gait Analysis, then the latest techniques are used for treatment including: Extra Corporal Shock Wave therapy or MLS Laser treatment for chronic pain, and minimally-invasive radiofrequency surgery using the TOPAZ device. Surgery may be performed in the office or at an ambulatory surgery center.
The mission of my practice is to help as many people suffering with foot pain return to their activities with an improved quality of life as quickly as possible.
