FOOT PATHOLOGY QUEENS PODIATRIST RIDGEWOOD LONG ISLAND PODIATRIST IN QUEENS  DOES HOUSE CALLS PODIATRIST HOUSE CALLS

Caution: the term foot pathology does not only mean a dermapathologist analyzing a podiatric dermatological skin lesion. More commen is the meaning of a podiatrist performing a gait analysis and a static exam to determine the muscular skeletal foot pathology causing foot pain and other symptoms. I PERSONALLY USE STJ ORTHOTICS LABS BECAUSE OF THE PERSONAL ATTENTION THEY GIVE. Regarding any heel pain, I got some good results with the heel spur special. STJ ORTHOTICS LABS CAN BE REACHED AT 1 800 321-4785 Please understand that whenever there is any orthotic made, it is important to do a gait analysis and a static exam and to take an accurate cast and to communicate with the lab and to choose correct materials for the foot orthotics and correct shoes. Sometimes I even send the patients shoes and orthotics to the lab so that STJ can attempt to get a more accurate orthotic fabricated. If I were a patient I would probably ask my podiatrist about the lab that is fabricating my foot orthotics. As in any podiatric exam, diagnosis or treatment there are no guarantees.
 
I have to ask every podiatrist and other health care professional the following question: If
there is a suspicious foot lesion why not biopsy it? I also have to ask one more question. Isn't it important  a podiatric specimen to be seen by a dermatopathologist? I only heard good things about Bako Pathology services and they were recommended to me by a podiatrist who was one of my teachers. I recently read a newsletter by Bako Pathology Services and I am interested in trying their services. Their telephone number is 877 376-7284.

I GENERALLY TELL MY PATIENTS TO NOT WEAR SHOES THAT ARE TOO TIGHT

I BELIEVE DIABETIC FOOT ULCER DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT IS A TEAM APPROACH               



REFER WHEN NECESSARY


IF SOMEONE HAS POOR CIRCULATION IN THEIR FEET GENERALLY, I BELIEVE THEY SHOULD BE REFERRED TO A VASCULAR SPECIALIST. IF SOMEONE HAS SWOLLEN FEET, THEY SHOULD BE TOLD IF THEY ELEVATE THEIR FEET TOO HIGH, THIS COULD IMPAIR CIRCULATORY FLOW TO THIER FEET. MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE FOR TREATMENT FROM THIS SITE. BE SEEN IN PERSON BY A PODIATRIST OR A MEDICAL DOCTOR THAT IS LICENSED TO TREAT THE FEET.


I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING ANY SHOE UNLESS A LICENSED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL EXAMINES THE SHOE AND THE FOOT AND GIVES AN OPINION AS TO IF THE SHOE PROPPERLY FITS ON SOMEONES FOOT.
<
For some of my patients I have tried using an arch support as a temporary attempt to treat certain problems. Before any treatment is attempted I feel it is important to first see a podiatrist or other qualified licensed health care practitioner.
FIND OUT ABOUT ORHOTICS     A PODIATRIST CAN GENERALLY PERFORM A BIOMECHANICAL EXAM AND GAIT ANALYSIS AND PRESCRIBE A CUSTOM MOLDED FOOT ORTHOTIC. BY TAKING A CAST OF THE FOOT IN IT'S OPTIMUM POSITION AND PRESCRIBING THE PROPPER ORTHOTICS NEEDED IS AN ATTEMPT TO TRY TO TREAT VARIOUS FOOT PROBLEMS. THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES.  SOMETIMES ORTHOTICS CAN BE VERY BENEFICIAL WHEN PRESCRIBED AND CASTED BY A PODIATRIST. FOR EXAMPLE I USED AN ORTHOTIC THAT WAS CALLED THE STJ HEEL SPUR SPECIAL FOR HEEL PAIN AND WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. SOMETIMES ORTHOTICS DO NOT WORK.
DISCLAIMER: DO NOT RELY ON ANY INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE, BUT FIRST SEE A LICENSED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL
