Foot and ankle pain prevents people from accomplishing their goals and
diminishes their quality of life. It is extremely rewarding to identify
the issue or problem, and correct it. Getting patients back to doing the
things they enjoy is often a matter of a few simple solutions.
I am a big believer in education and prevention, ensuring patients understand
what caused their foot or ankle problem, as well as how to treat it and
prevent it from reoccurring in the future. There are a significant number
of health problems that show symptoms in the feet before the rest of the
body, such as diabetes, arthritis, kidney problems and bone damage. Identifying
potential health issues and helping patients successfully prevent or treat
it, is what makes my job both fulfilling and worthwhile.
