What is Advanced Podiatry?
Podiatric medicine is devoted to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle resulting from injury or disease.
The human foot is the first area to show signs of serious conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease; here at San Mateo Podiatry Group, we call it Advanced Podiatry.
- 75% of Americans will experience foot problems in their lives.
- 19% of Americans have an average of 1.4 foot problems each year.
Common Podiatric Conditions
It is not normal for your feet to hurt! Patients suffering from foot pain can’t be their best selves at home, work or while exercising. Patients suffer in silence with these common problems:
- Onychomychosis (commonly known as toenail fungus)
- Onychocryptosis (commonly known as an ingrown toenail)
- Ganglion Cysts
- Puncture Wounds
- Skin Cancers of the Foot and Ankle
- Soft Tissue Biopsy and Diagnosis
- Verruca Plantaris (commonly know as Plantar Warts)
Patients suffering from foot pain are limited in their ability to exercise, spend time with their families and perform at work. These problems become more severe issues if neglected, requiring more invasive treatment than if earlier diagnosed and treated.
Deeper infections or malignant melanoma can be life and limb-threatening.
