At UR Medicine, I help people get back on their feet, so they can go back to doing the activities they enjoy. I specialize in the treatment of bunions, hammertoe, foot and ankle sprains, general foot and arch pain, foot fractures, arthritis, nerve related issues, and diabetic foot ulcers/limb salvage surgery. I have extensive experience in the treatment of foot and ankle conditions and perform elective and reconstructive foot surgery. I am also specially trained in reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery as well as foot surgery.
Not everyone needs surgery. I offer my patients individualized treatments make the most sense for them personally. I pride myself in offering my patients surgical or nonsurgical options when appropriate. As a board certified podiatric surgeon, when surgery is needed, I thoroughly explain the procedure and what they can expect afterward.
