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. For an appointment to meet with our expert podiatrist regarding any type of foot problem you may be having, contact our office today.

Treating bunions and hammertoes in Rockville Centre

Bunions are a progressive foot condition that affects the joint of the big toe. Bunions can cause deformities and spreading of the metatarsal bone, deforming the foot so that the big toe appears to be moving inward. The joint becomes enlarged and deformed over time. This causes the toe joint to become weak and irritated. At New York Podiatry Cre, our Rockville Centre podiatrist can help heal and treat painful bunions and other similar foot conditions such as hammertoes.

Bunions stick out to the side of the foot, making them susceptible to irritation from constant rubbing against shoes. Even worse, arthritis can affect the joint more easily, causing it to become stiff and sore. This painful condition affects many people each year and the condition can progress to a worse state if it is not treated in time. A bunion progressing from Stage I to Stage V can be debilitating. Living with bunions means turning to alternative ways of treating the foot, such as wearing modified shoes or considering foot surgery. We at New York Podiatry Care focus first on non-invasive treatments before turning to surgery as an option. Our Rockville Centre podiatrist is experienced in foot orthotics and treatments for bunions to help reduce pain and swelling.

Bunions can cause hammertoes, calluses and shin splints so they should be treated as quickly as possible and in a timely manner before they get worse. The goal of treatment is to immediately relieve toe pain and to prevent bunions from progressing or deteriorating. Our Rockville Centre podiatrist can discuss orthotic shoes with you if need be and inform you on how these shoes are made and how they can be worn to relieve pain. For more mild cases and temporary relief, we can prescribe acetaminophen and anti-inflammatory medicines to reduce the swelling associated with bunions. Ice, staying off feet as much as possible, wearing comfortable shoes and other easy to manage options can provide much relief in a quick way. If the bunions become extremely restrictive, we will discuss surgery options with you. Surgery can be a highly effective treatment and can relieve bunions permanently if healed properly.
