Foot doctors may be trained as orthopedic surgeons with a specialized focus on the foot and ankle or as podiatrists or podiatric surgeons who have expertise in podiatry, which is the medical term meaning “treatment of the feet.” These doctors have obtained specialty training in the foot and have developed deep knowledge and skills that allow them to diagnose and treat all types of patients with a range of foot problems and injuries. Here at Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our foot and ankle doctors are surgical podiatrists with advanced training in the foot and ankle and are board-certified to perform foot and ankle surgery if surgery is a necessary treatment option.
Know When It’s Time to Get Foot Treatment
You should consult with a doctor or foot surgeon if you notice any of these foot or ankle symptoms:
- Your ankle joint is painful in addition to foot pain
- Big toe looks deformed
- Heel pain, specifically on the bottom of your heel
- Thick skin at the base of the toe
- Toes point inward
- Weakness in the foot
You may also need to see a foot expert if you believe you have one of the following foot injuries or conditions:
- Achilles tendonitis (or tendinitis), an ankle injury that can cause both foot and ankle pain
- Ankle sprain
- Flat feet
- Foot fungus
- Ingrown toenail
- Plantar fasciitis
- Plantar warts
- Stress fracture
- Tendon tear
We Offer You the Expert Foot Care You Deserve
Specializing exclusively in the foot and ankle, our podiatrists are trained and equipped to assess, diagnose, and treat your foot pain. Surgery is often the last resort and second to any nonsurgical treatment options when those methods prove unsuccessful. For instance, a foot doctor may be able to prescribe an anti-inflammatory medication that can help improve your condition. Physical therapy may also help and can reduce or even eliminate foot pain or related ankle pain.
If you require foot surgery, our foot and ankle surgeons can perform the procedure you need. At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, you will receive the specialized care you need, every step of the way—whether you need bunion removal or another more complex surgical procedure. Schedule an appointment at our Brookfield, New Berlin, or Wheaton Elmbrook Internal Medicine location by calling (262) 395-4141 or by requesting an appointment online.
