Offering Comprehensive Podiatry Services in Miami Lakes, FL
At Peak Podiatry, I can diagnose and treat any Leg, Ankle, or Foot problems you may have.
Incorrect form, overstretching of ligaments, repetitive motions, and even unsafe exercise environments can result in injury. Sports that involve running, jumping, and skipping, in particular, can cause strains, sprains, and fractures in the foot and ankle.
During a consultation, I will take your medical history and examine your foot to determine which treatment is appropriate for you. Among the sports injuries I treat are ankle pain, turf toe, and stress fracture in the foot.
Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery
Calcaneus, or the heel bone, connects the major joints of the foot. A fractured heel bone causes pain, bruising, swelling, and difficulty walking. If left untreated, this injury could result in long-term consequences for the patient, such as a limp, arthritis, and chronic pain. If the break is severe, surgery may be necessary to relieve pain and restore mobility. Reach out to me so we can discuss your treatment options.
Complex Diabetic Foot and Ankle
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes. It results in the loss of sensation in the foot. As diabetic peripheral neuropathy progresses, the feet become more susceptible to the formation of ulcers. In turn, ulcers, if untreated, can lead to the loss of a foot or a limb. If you are experiencing numbness in your feet and ankles, make an appointment with me to get the help you need.
Total Ankle Replacement
If the pain from arthritis of the ankle has become so severe that it interferes with daily activities, surgical intervention may be recommended to relieve pain and preserve movement. If you have any questions, speak with me today.
