If you are having any type of foot problem, you will want to come in to be seen by our expert podiatrist at New York Podiatry Care. Our expert Oceanside foot surgeon, Dr. Sarah Kim or Dr. Bob Biller, will be able to offer you expert podiatry care including foot surgery when necessary.
At our podiatry practice, our podiatrist treats a broad range of foot problems, some needing foot surgery, and treatments being non-surgical in nature. One of the most common problems that we see at our office are ingrown toenails. An ingrown toenail is caused when part of the nail enters the surrounding nail fold. The ingrown toenail can cause pain and swelling. At times infection can develop, so this condition definitely needs to be treated when a patient has diabetes. Sometimes ingrown toenails can occur on a chronic basis. In these situations, our foot doctor will be able to provide our patient with a procedure that prevents the regrowth of the ingrown portion of the nail. Our Oceanside foot surgeon is also able to provide certain treatments for bunions, and correction of rigid hammertoes.
Patients also come to see our Oceanside foot surgeon for cosmetic foot surgery. There are some conditions of the feet that cannot only cause pain, but which are also unsightly. Many patients are embarrassed when they have these foot problems. Our podiatrist is able to treat many of these problems with cosmetic surgery. If you have a deformity in your ankle or foot, reconstructive surgical intervention may also be appropriate to help ease pain, reduce the deformity, and to help the patient have improved function of the foot. Our foot doctor can also prescribe orthotics to treat painful conditions such as heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and flat feet. These orthotics will correct an abnormal walking gait. Orthotics can also be used to make feet more comfortable when they have bunions. This can also keep the bunion from developing and prevent the need for bunion surgery. However, should bunion surgery be needed our foot surgeon will be able to provide it for you. Our Oceanside foot surgeon also sees many patients with foot sprains and fractures.
