Podiatric Medicine & Surgery

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Department staff provide medical and surgical care of all conditions of the foot and ankle. The ability to walk without pain is fundamental to all of our patients. Common types of reconstructive surgery include correction of foot deformities such as painful hallux valgus (bunions), hallux limitus (arthritis), toe deformities, and nerve procedures. The Podiatric surgeons can also correct painful complex deformities of the foot and ankle and repair trauma including fractures and arthritis following neglected fractures. All of the staff podiatric providers have a keen interest in providing state of the art care in diabetic wound care and diabetic limb salvage. The providers work closely with many medical specialists at HCMC to ensure that our patients suffering from diabetes or vascular disease maintain their ability to walk and to keep their independence.
