MetroHealth’s podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg. They have completed four years of study at a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency. Our team is committed to improving podiatric medicine, actively training new podiatrists and assisting with research studies.
Conditions We Treat
Our podiatrists treat a wide range of foot problems, including:
- Achilles tendon pain
- Corns and callouses
- Diabetic wounds and infections
- Heel pain
- Heel spurs
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sports injuries
- Thick toenails
- Conservative Care
Simple treatments like trimming and padding corns and callouses, fitting custom orthotics or filing nails so they don't rub on shoes can provide immense relief.
- Other Treatment Options
We provide treatments such as routine wound care, therapy, and surgical interventions.
People with diabetes often need specialized foot care. In general, we see people with diabetes once a year for foot checkups.
- Poor Circulation
Our podiatrists often work with specialists from the Heart & Vascular Center to care for patients with poor circulation.
For patients with complex injuries that extend beyond the foot and ankle, we partner with the Orthopedics Team. We also work closely with physical therapists to serve patients who could benefit from therapy.
