at Middletown Medical
Our Podiatry Team
Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg, such as tumors, ulcers, fractures, skin or nail diseases, and congenital or acquired deformity such as weak feet and foot imbalance. They also treat conditions such as corns, calluses, bunions, heel spurs, ingrown toenails, arch problems, shortened tendons, cysts, bone disorders, and abscesses. They design corrective orthotics, plaster casts, and strappings to correct deformities as well as flexible casting for immobilization of foot and ankle fractures, sprains, or other injuries. They can correct walking patterns and balance, and promote the overall ability to move about more efficiently and comfortably.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) – A Serious Medical Condition
Often Asymptomatic, Underdiagnosed, and Untreated
PAD affects 8-12 million Americans | 18% of the Medicare population has PAD | 66% of all PAD patients have NO symptoms.*
Patients who may have PAD should be tested—it's more than a pain in the leg.
PAD is associated with a 6 times higher risk for cardiovascular disease/event (heart attack/stroke). Watch for risk factors and symptoms in your patients.
NO RISK OF LOSING YOUR PATIENTS
Referred patients are treated by our vascular specialists and returned to your care.
Quick and easy scheduling process to help avoid risk of an admission
or increased risk for amputation.
SAFE, COMFORTING OUTPATIENT CENTER
Board-certified experts perform minimally invasive procedures in our fully equipped facility.
You can rely on our team to provide high quality, compassionate care before, during and after each procedure without a hospital stay.
If diagnosed early, PAD is treatable; if not, PAD can lead to amputation, even death.
Patients with ulcers and wounds should be referred immediately as they may already have critical limb ischemia (CLI), which can lead to amputation. Minimally invasive, image guided procedures improve patients' comfort, safety and outcomes.
WE PREVENT MORE THAN 80% OF AMPUTATIONS IN PATIENTS WHO WERE TOLD IT WAS THE ONLY OPTION.
