Noyes’ Podiatric Medicine and Foot Surgery center named a Center of Distinction
Thursday, April 1, 2021
DANSVILLE -- If you are in need of top-quality foot care, look no further than Dr. Jean Archer-Colella, DPM.
Dr. Archer-Colella, a surgical podiatrist, is a leading expert in all issues concerning the foot, with an emphasis on wound care, specifically those who have diabetic foot wounds. She treats a wide range of foot disorders and has specialties in sports medicine, biomechanics, geriatrics, pediatrics, and orthopedics.
Dr. Archer-Colella is using innovative Lapiplasty technology, a procedure to correct bunions, that has been proven to lead to shorter recovery times and better outcomes for patients.
Her work has led the Noyes’ Podiatric Medicine and Foot Surgery center to be named a Center of Distinction by Treace Medical.
“Bunion deformities which appear as a bump at the base of the big toe can lead to persistent and chronic pain and swelling as well as difficulty wearing shoes,” said Dr. Archer-Colella. “Oftentimes patients have tried many of the conservative options prior to seeking medical attention for this problem.
“When I’m evaluating a patient for this problem, I offer both conservative and surgical options.
When I can show a patient what a foot looks like after traditional bunion surgery and then what a foot looks like after Lapiplasty Tridimensional bunion correction, the patient sees the difference and it just makes sense to them to opt for this procedure.”
With quicker recovery times over conventional methods, fewer chances of re-occurrence, patients can be up and walking within a few days and wearing shoes within six weeks.
“When I treat complex and chronic wounds, there are certain procedures that sometimes need to be performed to further evaluate the wound care patient,” said Dr. Archer-Colella. “I have surgical skills that allow me to do that.”
She also helps in the coordination of care with other members of the wound care team including Vascular, Internal Medicine, Radiology, Laboratory, Nutrition, Pain Management, Diabetic education, Physical therapy, and Nursing. "A team approach has been proven to improve rates of wound healing," said Dr. Archer-Colella
Dr. Archer-Colella was also recently been named to the Board of Directors of both the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons and the American College of Clinical Wound Specialists.
Dr. Archer-Colella is a graduate of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Upon completion of a three-year residency in Podiatric Medicine and Foot Surgery in Queens, New York, Dr. Archer-Colella worked at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Richmond Hill (Queens), New York, and, most recently, in private practice affiliated with Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center. She is a Long Island native and moved to Dansville in 2015.
