Podiatry in New Jersey

The podiatrists at Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeons based out of Cedar Knolls, NJ, represent a new generation of foot and ankle specialists who use the latest procedures to assess, diagnose and treat foot problems.

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of foot, ankle, and lower extremity disorders. It involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of these areas.

We spend more than half of our lives on our feet. It is important that to protect them. Foot and lower limb problems are a significant cause of ill health, pain, and disability, which can lead to impaired balance and increase the risk of falling.

Common Podiatric Concerns We Treat 

Benefits of Podiatry

We specialize in complete foot and ankle treatment from office consultations, diagnosis, inpatient and outpatient care, biomechanical examinations, peripheral vascular disease screening, and orthotics (foot inserts).

Typically, podiatrists:

  • Consult with patients about preventing foot problems.
  • Diagnose and treat deformities, ulcers, fractures, hammertoes, neuroma’s, and skin and nail diseases.
  • Surgically correct or remedy such problems as bunions, fractures, and other ligament and tendon disorders.

How is Podiatry Performed?

From cosmetic challenges to internal nerve damage and fractures, podiatrists can diagnose treat and improve symptoms in patients.

  • Acute injuries may require surgeries like a procedure to lengthen or shorten the tendon.
  • Heel surgery can restore mobility and improve pain symptoms for those with conditions like plantar fascia.
  • Reconstructive surgery on the ankle is common if severe pain symptoms and deformities remain unresolved.
