Do you have trouble walking for long periods of time because your feet become very uncomfortable or painful? Many people neglect to have their foot pain issues attended to, and end up suffering the consequences of having it interfere with their enjoyment of everyday activities. At our podiatry practice, we want our patients to have a great quality of life, which includes having feet that feel great. If you are simply tired of having a foot problem and want to see our podiatrist in Lakeland, make an appointment at Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center today.
At our podiatry practice we have two highly trained foot surgeons on staff. They are Dr. Tatiana A. Wellens-Bruschayt and Dr. Maria T. Jaramillo-Dolan. Our foot doctors are both certified foot surgeons who are able to provide non-surgical and surgical foot treatments. Many foot problems are very easy to treat, especially when care is administered quickly. This will prevent the problem from developing. Our foot doctors see these common problems on an everyday basis: bunions; hammertoes; neuromas; athlete’s foot; and fungal toenails. Oftentimes fungal toenails and athlete’s foot are part of the same foot condition. Generally, athlete’s foot can be easily treated while fungal toenails tend to be more resistant to treatment. Our podiatrist in Lakeland is experienced in treating both of these problems, and will treat them successfully and completely.
Generally, athlete’s foot is not a serious problem for patients, except in certain situations. If patients have diabetes or other diseases that affect their ability to fight off infection in their feet, athlete’s foot can lead to a serious problem. For this reason if you have diabetes it is important to come in to see our podiatrist in Lakeland at the earliest sign of athlete’s foot, fungal toenails, or other foot problems. Many patients come in to see our podiatrist for regularly scheduled diabetic feet exams, which are very successful in helping our diabetic patients’ feet stay healthy. At our foot care practice we also see many patients with heel pain. There are many reasons heel pain may develop, and treatment will depend entirely upon the cause of the problem. Heel pain is often caused by a walking gait abnormality that places too much stress on the heel bone. At our practice we also provide emergency treatment for foot and ankle injuries. It is important that these types of injuries are addressed as soon as possible to make sure there the need for immediate treatment is not overlooked. When you need foot care from an expert podiatrist, we hope you will contact our office for an appointment.
