      "Even though I am well trained in the surgical management of all foot and ankle conditions, my position on elective surgery has always been that of a last resort option which is usually only needed in cases where pain is affecting or limiting your daily activities. In most cases, a resolution to your symptoms can be achieved without surgical intervention. I also provide routine foot care evaluations to diabetic patients needing preventative care to maintain good health and prevent amputations or other complications arising from diabetes."

      • broken bones of the foot and ankle
      • torn ligaments and/or tendons of the foot and ankle

      • plantar fasciitis and other arch pain
      • arthritis
      • fungal infections of the skin and nails
      • diabetic patients needing preventative care to maintain good health

      I also have special training in following techniques:
