Podiatry

The goal of the Podiatry Department at Westmed is to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from foot and ankle conditions. Our specialists partner with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that will enable them to walk without pain, wear shoes comfortably, participate in exercise and leisure activities, and prevent serious complications, such as wounds or amputation.

Diabetic Foot Care

A common condition for people with diabetes is the loss of feeling in their feet (neuropathy). This can lead to serious issues if the person does not realize they have developed a foot injury, and it is left untreated. Visiting your podiatrist for regular foot checks can ensure your feet are healthy and will help to prevent any serious complications down the road.

Westmed podiatrists work alongside our wound care experts, and diabetes educators to help guard patients from foot infections, ulcers and damage caused by poor circulation. This includes educating patients on the best ways to care for your condition and also treating foot ulcers which is a common issue for people with diabetes.
