The Center For Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine is a podiatric surgical and sports medicine practice specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders and diseases of the foot and ankle for children, adults and seniors. The Center is under the medical direction of Dr. Josef J. Geldwert. Dr. Geldwert is widely recognized as one of the leading New York Podiatrists with more than 40 years of experience and a host of affiliations. Get to know him in our NYC Foot Surgeon Spotlight.
The Westchester County office is situated in a brick building with ample free parking in an adjacent lot, down quiet Mitchell Place, off Mamaroneck Avenue, in the heart of White Plains. We are conveniently located very close to White Plains Hospital.
Our Manhattan facility is down the road the Guggenheim Museum at 111 East 88th Street. In fact, (weather permitting) much rehabilitation work takes place in beautiful Central Park, which is six minutes from our center.
Both facilities provide comfortable and efficient settings that allow us to diagnose and treat any foot problem quickly and thoroughly.
Here at The Center, we offer comprehensive treatment of functional problems of the foot and ankle, fitting and modification of orthotic inserts, and podiatric sports medicine rehabilitation services. The Center provides quality care to those who suffer from chronic back and knee or foot problems stemming from abnormal biomechanics or sports injuries. Bunions, plantar fasciitis, and tendon issues are a few of our specialties.
We are fully equipped to handle acute accidental injuries with a full suite of diagnostic imaging technology, advanced pain relief therapies, and a staff of specialists and surgeons on hand when seconds count. We’ll see you through the entire process from diagnosis through recovery
On your first visit, you will be interviewed about your medical history and your present health. One of our doctors will then examine you to determine the nature of your ailment. Once the doctor has diagnosed your problem,they will explain your problem to you and will schedule you for the proper treatment and care.
- Diagnostic Imaging
X-Rays are an important tool for proper diagnosis and tracking of podiatric problems. The Center has its own X-Ray facilities. We take the utmost care not to expose you to any unnecessary radiation and will order X-Rays only when they are essential. Our Westchester office has state of the art digital radiology, which allows images to be viewed on a computer rather than having films. The New York office has a musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging unit for evaluation of tendon & muscle problems.
Both the New York and Westchester offices have a Walking & Running Gait Analysis Lab with video motion analysis. Either facility has the tools necessary to perform in-house computerized orthotic scanning to fashion custom insoles with minimal waiting.
The New York office has a cryosurgical unit for advanced treatment of neuromas and chronic plantar fasciitis.
Our doctors’ goals are aimed at “getting patients back to their sport or healthy lifestyle quickly.”
We achieve this by investing in the latest technology proven by science that professional athletes come to expect. From Platelet Rich Plasma Injections and Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers, to Mix5 Pain Lasers and Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, we know how to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities in parts of the body that are notoriously slow in circulation and healing. Our podiatric surgeons use advanced surgical techniques and products such as the Cartiva Implant that yield faster healing times than ever thought possible.
When you come to see us, you receive the respect, professional care, and compassion you deserve. Every patient gets ample time to discuss their concerns with experienced specialists, no matter how big or small the injury is. Our renowned NY Podiatrists and front office staff members pride themselves on prompt and courteous treatment, whether you’re in for a minor cosmetic foot issue, a major reconstruction of a deformity, or the correction of a previous failed surgery. You can expect from us not only the utmost quality foot care, but also a timely visit. We know your time is valuable and we will make every attempt for you to avoid a lengthy wait.
