The best Midtown Manhattan Podiatry services

Our practice was founded by Dr. Josef J. Geldwert DPM, a renowned expert on bunion correction and running injuries. Dr. Geldwert earned his medical degree from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in 1973 and completed his residency at Northlake Community Hospital in Illinois. In 1978, he was certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. He opened The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine’s Midtown Manhattan podiatrist office in 1990 and added a White Plains office in 2009 to bring his expert care to even more New Yorkers.

Advanced Technologies

Some patients prefer traditional podiatric care that’s covered by insurance companies. However, we also offer ultramodern therapies that elite athletes use to get back to the game quicker. Though insurers may not yet cover these late-breaking treatments, we’ve seen amazing clinical results using:

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for soft tissue injuries
  • PinPointe Footlaser for nail fungus
  • MLS laser for foot pain
  • Cryosurgery for plantar fasciitis and wart removal
  • Extracorporeal shockwave treatment for chronic pain
  • Computerized gait analysis and orthotics scanning for running injuries and general pain
  • Ultrasonic debridement of scar tissue for non-healing wounds

These are just a few of the advanced technologies we offer. Our Midtown Manhattan podiatrists are always furthering their education and attending industry meetings to keep a pulse on tools that aid in patient care.

Friendly Service

We provide care that goes well beyond time spent in our office. We discuss prevention strategies, self-care you can do at home and how to accomplish basic foot care and choose footwear wisely.

We truly understand the immense frustration that foot pain and limited mobility causes our patients. Our compassionate approach and friendly service are part of what distinguishes our practice from the many other Midtown Manhattan foot doctors.
