I believe in providing my patients with the best possible foot care. I am well trained in traditional foot surgery, modem minimal-incision surgery, and the latest technologically-advanced Laser surgery.
Podiatry has come a long way from trimming corns and filing nails. The underlying causes of corns, cnllouses, and ingrown nails are now understood and treatable. Rather than repeated trimming and illing, I advocate treating the underlying cause of the problem. I outline the surgical options: traditional, minimalincision, or Laser therapy. Then taking into account each individual patient's needs and desires, we decide together on a specific treatment plan. I strive to educate each patient about his /her particular foot problem, so he/she can fully participate in choosing a treatment plan.
Most procedures are done in the comfortable setting of my office. Usually my patients can walk immediately after the procedure. The healing time is usually very brief. I see my post-surgical patients frequently to keep a close eye on the healing process. Because I am very concerned about my patient's comfort, I usually prescribe a few pain pills for the evening after surgery. Many patients tell me they did not need to take a single pill because the discomfort was minimal.
I welcome questions from my patients, and 1 am always happy to discuss each individual foot problem. I want to work with you to resolve your foot problems. Please don't hesitate to call me.

Since graduation from podiatry school, I have helped more than 25,000 patients with foot problems. I have taken care of thousands of warts, ingrown nails, bunions, and hammertoes. I am very experienced in Laser therapy of soft tissue problems: fungal nails, ingrown nails, neuromas, scars, and warts. I own a Hi-Tech-Laser and have taught other doctors and podiatrists the technique of Laser surgery.
