Comprehensive Care of the Foot & Ankle
What We Treat
Soft Tissue Masses
Diabetic Foot Evaluations & Shoes
Pre-fabricated and custom orthotics
Orthopedic derangements of the foot
We offer specialized orthotics (custom shoe inserts) which have brought great relief to our patients over the past 25 years. Each and every orthotic is individually made to your cast and can be tailored to your lifestyle. Custom orthotics provide support and improve your biomechanics.
We use several types of materials ranging from fiberglass, thermocork, polyethylene, polypropylene, superglass, and a wide range of cushioned and protective devices. Our orthotics are made by taking a plaster cast of your feet to give us and the laboratory a three-dimensional image of your feet.
Orthoses are the most advanced devices your doctor can prescribe for you
Almost any diabetes management plan involves a pair of specifically designed diabetic shoes with inserts to prevent ulcerations and other potential complications.
Diabetic shoes help to prevent calluses, promote blood circulation, provide advanced level of comfort as well as pain relief, and prevent skin breakdown.
Diabetic shoes have to meet strict Medicare guidelines, be prescribed by a professional, as well as fit by a certified podiatrist. The diabetic shoes must have removable heat moldable inserts or custom orthotics. The shoes and inserts become a system that helps diabetic patients avoid foot problems and improve quality of life.
