Fixing Feet Institute: See the Areas of Practice for Our Arizona Foot Doctors
With experienced Arizona podiatrists on staff, we are able to offer a wide range of podiatric services in Surprise. We specialize in heel pain, nerve problems, diabetic feet, injuries, deformities, skin and toenail problems, children’s feet, and unsteady gait.
More than half of all individuals with diabetes suffer from nerve damage that can severely affect the feet. Poor circulation is also common, which makes it so sores and cuts have a hard time healing. In addition to keeping blood sugar under control, people with diabetes must stay on top of caring for their feet and being very aware of any changes.
Foot and ankle injuries are common and usually extremely painful. Many of our patients suffer some kind of fracture or sprain while playing sports, doing household chores, or after being in a motor vehicle accident. People will also commonly encounter overuse injuries after doing repetitive motions for an extended period of time.
When you face the decision of going under the knife, you'll be glad to know Fixing Feet Institute treats patients with a variety of foot or ankle conditions that may require surgery. We frequently perform procedures including reconstructive surgery on bunions or hammertoes, nerve surgery to relieve chronic pain, tendon surgery to repair a tear or rupture, ingrown toenail removal, and sugery to repair damage from a tramatic injury. We also provide comprehensive plans for your post-operative care.
Don't let embarrassing skin or toenail issues keep you from being comfortable. At Fixing Feet Institute, we treat patients dealing with a variety of skin and toenail conditions like ingrown toenails, fungus nails, plantar warts, skin growths, dry skin, rashes, and athlete's foot.
Does your toddler walk funny? Does your child have flat feet? Contrary to popular belief, he or she may not "grow out of it." We can evaluate your child at any age and let you know if you should be concerned. Your child will respond much better to treatment that is started as soon as possible.
Do you lose your balance or fall frequently? Your unsteady gait may be more than just clumsiness; these symptoms are often linked to conditions like muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, drop foot, arthritis, Charcot-Marie Tooth Disorder and central nervous system disorders.
Nerve problems in feet can cause extreme pain and strange sensations like burning, numbness and tingling. You may be suffering from a nerve issue and not even realize that is the problem. Visit Fixing Feet Institute to be seen by Dr. Viedra Elison, a podiatrist who specializes in nerve problems. He will be able to diagnose your trouble and get you on the road to treatment and recovery.
Many of us will experience some type of heel pain in our lifetimes. Simply staying off your feet for a while sometimes can relieve heel pain. However, there are several serious conditions that also cause heel pain. If those conditions are left untreated, the effects on your daily life and physical wellbeing can be quite disabling. Fixing Feet Institute will evaluate your pain to help get you on the road to recovery.
