If you have diabetes, it is recommended that you see our foot doctor on a periodic basis to make sure that you are not developing any serious foot problems. If you are looking for a podiatrist who provides excellent diabetic foot care, you should come to our foot care practice. Our Lakeland podiatrist is highly skilled in treating and preventing diabetic foot problems.
When a patient has diabetes, they often have reduced circulation in their feet. This means that it is common to develop foot problems which are difficult to treat. Even a corn can develop an infection which can be, a problem for a diabetic patient who has reduced circulation. The reduced circulation of blood in your feet makes it more difficult for your feet to heal quickly. The best thing a patient with diabetes can do to protect their feet is to come in and see our Lakeland podiatrist for periodic diabetic foot exams. During this foot exam, our foot doctor will check for any ulcerations or infections. If you have a foot condition which can lead to an infection, our podiatrist will treat it preventatively before serious foot problems occur. Our Lakeland podiatrist can also help you come up with a plan to keep your feet healthy. At our practice, we also treat many different types of foot care problems ranging from fungal toenails to corns and calluses to bunions. We use PinPointe laser technology to treat fungal toenails. This treatment allows us to effectively kill the toenail fungus that is present underneath the toenail. Toenail fungus can be a major problem for patients with diabetes. This is because fungal infection can spread to other parts of your body without proper treatment. Fungal toenails can be difficult to treat, but our state-of-the-art laser equipment makes it much easier to effectively and completely treat fungal toenails.
