Podiatry Treatments

Post Street Surgery Center is a state-of-the-art surgical center led by a talented team of podiatrists. We provide comprehensive treatments that address the root cause of your feet and ankle problems, tracing their source using advanced diagnostic tools and techniques. In most cases, we address your feet and ankle problems using non-surgical treatments, such as laser treatment, regenerative medicine, injections, and more. However, we recommend surgeries when your ankle and feet conditions are severe or to avoid future complications.

Below is a list of podiatry treatments we provide:

Bunions & Hammertoes

A bunion is an overgrowth of bone on the joint of the big toe, often leading to painful protrusions on the side of the foot. Bunion treatments can range from custom orthotics (shoe inserts) to a cutting-edge surgical procedure known as Lapiplasty.

A hammertoe is a foot deformity marked by an abnormal bend on the middle joint, usually caused by imbalances in the ligaments, tendons, or muscles. Hammertoe treatments can range from custom orthotics to a hammertoe surgery that releases the affected muscles or tendons.

  • Heel Pain
    Heel pain usually occurs when the heel bone is injured or inflamed, leading to gait and imbalance issues. We treat heel pain using cutting-edge Topaz and Tenex surgeries, depending on whether your heel pain is caused by Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles Tendonitis.
  • Flat Feet
    Flat footedness occurs because of a missing arch inside the foot, making the entire food touch the ground when you stand up. It can develop in adulthood due to the weakening of the tendon responsible for maintaining the arch. Treatments range from custom orthotics to surgeries.
  • Foot & Ankle Deformities
    Foot and ankle deformities can be congenital (from birth) or occur due to traumatic injuries and underlying conditions. Depending on the root cause of your deformities, the treatment may include surgeries like External Fixation, Internal Fixation, or Limb Lengthening.
  • Arthritis
    Arthritis is a condition wherein one or more joints in the ankles and feet are inflamed for various underlying reasons, leading to stiffness and pain. The treatment can range from conservative (braces and physical therapy) to surgical (joint preservation and joint replacement).
  • Sports Medicine
    Athletes are at a high risk of sustaining sports-related foot and ankle injuries, such as sprains, strains, and fractures. Depending on the level and type of injury, your treatment may include custom orthotics, custom bracing, or arthroscopy surgery.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine refers to treatments that encourage your body to boost your naturally heal damaged tissues. Regenerative treatments for foot and ankle injuries include amniotic tissues, stem cell therapy, PRP therapy, and skin grafts.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments use light energy to activate your body’s innate healing processes. The concentrated light beams move over your skin tissues, encouraging your body to kickstart the healing process. Laser treatments include PinPointe™ FootLaser®, Topaz, and Tenex.

Pediatric Foot & Ankle Conditions

Children can develop numerous foot and ankle conditions, such as flat-footedness, club foot disorder, deformities, toe-walking, plantar warts, ingrown toenails, and more. We have a soothing environment wherein we help children recover using safe and comfortable treatments.

Diabetic Foot Conditions/Charcot Arthropathy

Diabetic patients can experience various foot conditions, such as ulcers, hammertoes, blisters, bunions, plantar warts, calluses, toenail infections, and Charcot arthropathy (loss of sensation). We help diabetic patients maintain optimal health and treat food conditions.

Wound Care/Diabetic Foot Care & Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is a condition wherein diabetic patients lose sensation in their ankles and feet due to insufficient care. We offer custom-fitted immobilization devices, custom orthotics, ongoing observation, and expert wound cleaning and treatment for diabetic patients.
