Scar Treatments: Scars on the feet and ankles can result from various causes, including trauma, surgery, or skin conditions. Our practice offers a range of scar treatment options, including topical creams, silicone gel sheets, laser therapy, and surgical revision techniques, to minimize the appearance of scars and improve skin texture and tone.

Soft Tissue Masses: Soft tissue masses, such as cysts, nodules, or tumors, can develop on the feet and ankles for various reasons. Our specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating soft tissue masses using conservative measures such as corticosteroid injections or surgical excision to alleviate pain and restore function.

Fungal Infections of Skin or Nails: Fungal infections of the skin (such as athlete’s foot) or nails (onychomycosis) are common dermatologic conditions that can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Our practice offers effective treatment options for fungal infections, including topical antifungal medications, oral antifungal medications, laser therapy, and preventive measures to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Bacterial Infections: Bacterial infections of the skin or soft tissues of the foot and ankle can occur as a result of breaks in the skin, cuts, or wounds. Prompt treatment is essential to prevent complications such as cellulitis or abscess formation. Our team can diagnose and treat bacterial infections with antibiotics, wound care, and surgical intervention if necessary.

Ingrown Nails: Ingrown nails occur when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin, leading to pain, swelling, and infection. Our specialists offer conservative treatments such as soaking the foot in warm water and applying antibiotic ointment, as well as minor surgical procedures to remove the ingrown portion of the nail and prevent recurrence.
