We provide comprehensive medical and surgical Podiatry Care.  
We invite you to take our Foot Health Quiz.



 
My toenails are streaked, discolored and thickened.
 (
May mean your nails have a fungus.  We can treat                                                     
  this with  oral medications such as
Lamisil, topical                                                     
   medications such as
Penlac and  surgically.                                

 The sides of my toenails dig into the skin and hurt.
(
May mean you have an ingrown toenail.  This can be treated                                      
  in the office.  Doctor Rainer does a procedure that can
  permanently correct this problem.)

I have a large bone/bump behind my big toe.
(
Probably a bunion which is inflamed/enlarging. This can be
treated with Orthotics or splinting.  Doctor Rainer does outpatient                               
surgical correction of bunions as well.)

 I get a painful cramp in the ball of my foot in shoes and after rest.
 (
A neuroma, a nerve problems, is a common culprit. Neuromas
 can be treated with decompression, injections, orthotics, or they
 can be surgically removed.) We are also using an injection technique using                
 a special alcohol mixture to avoid traditional surgery!

  
My toes aren't straight-they curl, are bent and hurt.
(Hammertoes can be painful, especially in shoes.  These are                                         
   treated with padding, management of associated corns and
  callouses, or they can be surgically corrected.)

My heels hurt all day, but it is worse in the morning or after rest.
(
Probably due to a condition called Plantar Fasciitis or Heel Spur                                
 Syndrome. This is treated with OTC orthotics, Custom Molded Orthotics,
injections, NSAIDs, Night Splints, Physical Therapy,
OssaTron,   or                             
            endoscopic surgical  management.)
NEW! TOPAZ LINK!

 My feet are always dry and scaly-they also itch.
 (
Often due to athlete's foot- tinea pedis, a fungal infection.  This is treated
  with prescription creams or oral medications)

 
I have numbness, burning, infection, persistent pain,
 a skin rash, an open sore or wound. (
Any of these conditions should                              
 receive immediate professional attention!)
