Whether you’re suffering from chronic foot pain, a sudden ankle injury, a growing bunion, a concerning dermatological development, or any other distressing foot and ankle condition, you can always rely on the expert care of Dr. Anthony Spitz, DPM, PC.
Our office provides a full range of surgical and nonsurgical care options for injuries, diseases, and other painful or frustrating problems affecting your lower limbs. We work with feet and ankles all day, every day, and can offer the treatment you need to get you back to full health.
Conditions we commonly treat at our office include:
Heel pain that greets you in the morning, keeps you from enjoying favorite activities, and makes your workdays miserable isn’t a “normal” part of getting older. It’s a problem that should be fixed—and almost always can be without surgery.
Heel pain can be caused by many different types of conditions, so an accurate diagnosis is critical before developing a treatment plan. We offer advanced nonsurgical remedies, including cold laser therapy.
Heel pain conditions we often treat include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel spurs
- Achilles tendinitis
- Achilles bursitis
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Haglund’s deformity
- Sever’s disease
Foot and Toe Deformities
All feet change shape a little over time due to years of wear and tear. However, some people develop severe bony deformities far beyond what is normal, usually due to a combination of genetics, footwear, and other factors.
If your feet are becoming misaligned, seek help before you begin experiencing daily pain, or can no longer fit into your favorite shoes! This increases the odds that you can delay or prevent surgery. If you do need surgery, however, we can offer advanced treatment options including minimally invasive surgery and HyProCure.
Foot deformities we often treat, both surgically and non-surgically, include:
- Flat feet
- Claw toes
Sports Injuries & Trauma
Whether you’ve suffered a foot or ankle injury on the soccer pitch, in the workplace, or anywhere else, we can help. Time is of the essence … the sooner you seek help from our team after your injury, the better your results will be.
We provide advanced care options for traumatic injuries like sprains and strains, as well as overuse injuries and chronic pain that develop over time.
Common sports-related injuries we treat include:
- Ankle injuries
- Muscle strains
- Heel pain
- Shin splints
Nail & Skin Conditions
Dermatological and nail concerns are a common problem for patients young and old. Healthy skin and nails aren’t just pretty to look at, however. They also help protect your feet (and by extension the rest of your body) from injury and disease.
From topical creams to advanced antifungal laser therapy, we can help you restore your skin and nails to a healthy shine. Conditions we often treat include:
Diabetic-Related Foot Conditions
Diabetes can cause serious problems with your feet and ankles, damaging circulation, immune system function, and nerve health, and even reducing your ability to heal properly.
If you have diabetes, you should have your feet examined several times per year by your foot doctor. We can provide advanced screening, preventative measures, and direct care for related foot conditions including:
- Foot ulcers
- Nerve conditions
- Circulatory problems
- Skin and nail problems
Pediatric Foot Conditions
Because young feet are still growing, foot problems can develop quickly. It is very important to have a foot doctor identify and treat any emerging concerns before they have a chance to continue into adulthood.
Conditions that are unique or especially common during childhood include:
- Congenital foot deformities
- Gait pattern abnormalities, such as intoeing or out-toeing when walking
- Ingrown toenails
- Sever’s disease
- Plantar warts
