Good old-fashioned podiatry near the Bronx
While we’ve invested in technology, we still adhere to the mainstays of excellent podiatric care including physical examinations by trained podiatrists, rehabilitation programs, and good old-fashioned RICE treatment (rest, ice, compression, and elevation). Whenever possible, we take a conservative approach and view surgical intervention as a last resort for chronic pain and poor mobility. However, should you need bunion surgery, ankle joint replacement, wart extraction, tumor removal, or arthroscopic tendon repair, know that you are in the very best of hands.
