Podiatry Q & A

What is podiatry?

Podiatry refers to the medical practice of diagnosing and treating any concerns or conditions related to the foot and ankle. Common podiatry issues can include ingrown toenails, heel/arch pain, foot warts, corns/calluses, fungal nails, sprains, and broken foot bones.

How do I know I require podiatry services?

Foot and ankle problems can occur for several reasons, such as from an accident or inherited genetics. Active individuals are at a greater risk for overuse injuries, or some people wear improper footwear, which can lead to an injury. Chronic illnesses, like diabetes, also create a need for podiatry medicine, as diabetes commonly affects blood flow to the extremities. 

The experts at Rofé Medical can treat several foot and ankle concerns, including:

  • Heel Pain
  • Warts
  • Diabetic Foot
  • Calluses
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Sprains
  • Bunions

What can I expect at my podiatry appointment?

Upon arrival at your appointment, your provider will review your medical history, including medications and any previous surgeries you have undergone. They will ask you about your concerns and likely perform a comprehensive examination. You may also be asked to have X-rays taken to further assess your condition.

Depending on your concerns, your provider may check how you stand or walk, and ensure you don’t have a limited range of motion. Depending on the severity of your condition, your provider may be able to address your concern immediately, such as removing ingrown toenails. More complex injuries may require several visits and a physical therapy routine.

Does podiatry care require surgery?

The type of treatment required for your foot or ankle concern depends on its severity. The experts at Rofé Medical can treat many foot ailments with nonsurgical methods. Nonsurgical methods include physical therapy, prescriptions, infections, IV treatments, orthopedic shoes, and more. 

If you have a severe injury, especially if broken bones are present, surgery may be your only option. If this is the case, the experts can provide resources on the best course of action you should take. Our Doctor is Board Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
