NYC Podiatry: Chronic Foot Pain and Sports Injury Treatment For All the Boroughs

A Google search for “NYC podiatry” brings up nearly 8,000 results. It’s a competitive market for local podiatrists! When opening The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine in 1990, Dr. Josef J. Geldwert sought to provide New Yorkers with a comfortable environment where they would be treated to the expert knowledge of board-certified foot doctors, the unsurpassed skill of top-level podiatric surgeons, and the latest technologies the industry offers. We understand that no one is thrilled to see the doctor for any type of health issue, but we hope to make your time with us as productive and pleasant as possible.

NYC Ankle & Foot Injuries

  •     Non-healing or delayed unions
  •     Sprained ankles
  •     Turf toe
