Foot and Ankle Surgery Foot and Ankle Surgery

Does your foot or ankle condition require surgery? The podiatrists at Sol Foot & Ankle Centers frequently perform surgical procedures both in-office and at local surgery centers and hospitals. We perform most types of surgery, including bunion surgery, hammertoe correction, neuroma excisions, cyst removal, toenail surgery, and foot reconstruction.

Diabetic Foot Care Diabetic Foot Care

Individuals with diabetes much be vigilant about their foot care. Why? Diabetes can cause people to have poor circulation and nerve damage, especially in their feet. The nerve damage in the feet (neuropathy) prevents the person from feeling the cut or wound when they get hurt, and the poor circulation prevents the wound from properly healing. Diabetics who have a small cut or scrape on the foot are at risk of infection and developing foot ulcers that can lead to foot amputations.  Sol Foot & Ankle Centers regularly helps individuals with diabetes; we treat people who are already suffering from foot conditions, as well as those who simply want to take preventative action through the use of orthotics or other measures.

Children's Foot Problems Children's Foot Problems

Children’s feet are always changing, and it's important for parents to be aware of any changes that may seem abnormal. We treat children with flat feet, bone growth problems, birth defects, fractures, sprains, or other common conditions like plantar warts and athlete’s foot. We are also happy to examine the feet of growing children to ensure that they are developing properly.
