Podiatrists are medical professionals trained to keep feet and ankles healthy and working well. No matter what your age or foot problem, podiatrists at Good Samaritan Hospital do their best to grant prompt and effective care. While reducing symptoms and working to correct the cause of the problem, podiatrists coordinate with other members of your healthcare team, such as your primary care physician, to provide optimal medical treatment.

Good Samaritan's Comprehensive Orthopaedic Center is a recognized Center of Excellence with many outstanding clinical programs. Among those, podiatric programs include:

Foot Surgery provides pain relief, restores function, and improves both appearance and comfort. Both invasive and surgical treatment options are explored, with choices focused upon each patient's unique condition and preventing any future problems. Podiatrists on the Good Samaritan Hospital medical staff specialize in programs and treatments, for conditions affecting:
  • Bones: bunions, hammertoes, bone/heel spurs, fractures and stiff joints
  • Skin: warts, fungal infections, corns and calluses, cracks and sores
  • Nails: ingrown nails, thick nails, black-and-blue nails.
  • Soft Tissue: tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and ankle sprains
  • Arch and nerve problems

Diabetes, circulatory problems and arthritis are major contributors to foot damage. Diabetes often causes poor blood circulation or loss of feeling in your feet. When compounded with diabetes, even a tender spot or tiny break in the skin can turn into a serious infection. However, with prompt diagnosis podiatrists can alleviate pain and empower patients with preventative self-care techniques. Treatment options include ultrasounds, Orthotics, physical therapy, compression, and surgery to help patients regain comfort and mobility as quickly as possible.
