Quality Podiatrist in Lawrenceville, NJ

Podiatrists, or foot doctors, are specialists of podiatric medicine who diagnose and treat the foot, ankle, and related leg structures. These doctors complete four years of medical school followed by three of specialized hospital residency training, similar to that of physicians in other healthcare disciplines.

Why Should I See a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists engage in many medical fields including sports medicine, wound care, and diabetic foot care, and can assist you in many areas of your health. For example, they can assess your body proportions and feet to recommend an optimal athletic shoe or warm-up exercises to avoid injury. This can be especially helpful for those who are getting into regular exercise and suffer from pains such as shin splints. If you have diabetes, you may have exceptionally dry feet, numbness, or serious toe infections. Studies show an annual podiatry exam reduces the chance of diabetic foot or leg amputation by 50%. An experienced podiatrist can also remedy painful ingrown toenails, bunions, corns, athlete’s foot, strains, broken ankle or foot bones, among other conditions.
