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.

Advanced Sports Injury Care

Many high-impact sports can put added pressure on your feet, and an injury can cause frustration, hinder training and activity, or even sideline you for a longer period of time.

Some common sports injuries can include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Toe injuries (such as turf toe)

Trained in Sports Medicine, our podiatrists also treat traumatic injuries to the ankle and foot, including fractures and sprains. We have on-site X-ray, ultrasound, and CT scans, which allow diagnostic care to be centralized in one location and reduce the need for emergency room visits.
