FIND THE BEST PODIATRIST & SURGEONS IN CORAL SPRINGS FOR TREATMENT
Everyone experiences foot and ankle pain at some point in their life. This pain may arise from an injury to the foot or ankle or simple foot arch pain, and in some cases may require surgery. There are two types of foot and ankle doctors available: 1, Board Certified Podiatrists (Podiatric Foot and Ankle Surgeons), and 2, Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Therefore, choosing the correct Foot and Ankle clinic for your treatment can be confusing. It is important to understand the difference between Foot and Ankle Orthopedic Surgeons and Board-Certified Podiatrists near you prior to seeking treatment.
FOOT AND ANKLE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS VS BOARD-CERTIFIED PODIATRIST
Some orthopedic surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle have completed a one-year fellowship in dedicated training in foot and ankle surgery. However, all currently trained Podiatric foot surgeons have completed three years of dedicated foot and ankle training. Orthopedic surgeons treat all conditions of the musculoskeletal system, including hands, arms, hips, knees and backs. Podiatrists treat only conditions of the foot, ankle and lower leg. Therefore, one will receive more dedicated care if treated at our foot and ankle clinic in Coral Springs which is staffed by board certified podiatrists.
OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
Our practice philosophy is to examine patients on the whole rather than from the ankle downward. Many diseases affect the lower extremities, so as a specialist, we must always be able to think like a general internist, while still being a specialist.
We are a group of professional and empathic foot and ankle doctors specializing in all conditions of the lower extremity within an inviting and state-of-the-art office setting. Our office staff is cheerful, skilled and eager to assist you in all your needs in or outside of the exam room.
As a foot and ankle clinic, we render treatment for a range of conditions including heel pain originating from spurs and plantar fasciitis, bunions, foot and ankle injuries as well as foot and ankle arthritis and arthroscopic procedures. The doctors in our clinics treat several foot and ankle problems such as ingrown toenails, leg swelling management, skin and nail conditions, warts and fracture casting.
