At Framingham Podiatry we are committed to alleviating your foot discomfort.
We understand how foot pain can interfere with your daily life. By using
medications, shoe modifications, physical therapy, orthotics, palliative
care and other treatments we can relieve most foot pain. Our philosophy
is a conservative one, treating the majority of our patients without
surgery. However, when surgery is indicated, we operate at Metrowest
Medical Center or The University of Massachusetts Medical Center in
Marlboro. For simple procedures we have an in-office surgical suite
for your convenience. We look forward to helping you with your foot
and ankle complaints.
WHO ARE PODIATRISTS? WHAT DO THEY TREAT?
A podiatrist is a doctor specializing in
the treatment of the foot and ankle. Podiatrists have educations similar
to medical doctors. After completing undergraduate college they spend
four years in podiatric medical school. Biochemistry, neurology, anatomy,
pharmacology and other basic medical courses begin our
studies. During the third and fourth years of education there is an
emphasis placed on clinical subjects such as biomechanics, diabetic
foot problems, vascular disease, radiology and foot surgery. Upon completion
of podiatric medical school, podiatrists go on to hospital -based residency
programs with emphasis on hospital management of foot problems and foot
Podiatrists treat all types of conditions that
involve the foot and ankle. These include such uncomplicated concerns as
corns, calluses and thickened nails as well as more serious problems
such as infections, diabetic ulcers and foot surgery. Podiatrists
perform surgery for bunions, hammertoes (contracted toes), heel spurs
and pinched nerves. They treat biomechanical conditions such as sore and
fallen arches, heel pain, tendonitis, arthritis and sports related
injuries. Warts, ingrown toenails and athlete's foot fungus are common
complaints from both adult and pediatric patients. Besides medical and
surgical management of foot and ankle problems, podiatrists also provide
customized orthotics and evaluate shoes for modification.
