Foot and ankle conditions can take a toll on quality of life, causing pain and limiting mobility. That’s why Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central PA offers the most up-to-date, clinically supported foot and ankle treatments available.
Our Foot and Ankle Treatments
When you visit Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central PA, our team will draw on their wealth of experience and expertise to provide a diagnosis and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Available treatments include:
Primary Foot and Ankle Medicine
Our primary foot and ankle medicine services help patients with a variety of conditions achieve better health. These services include treatments for nail and skin disorders, neuropathy/polyneuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, lymphedema, and venous disease of the lower extremities.
MLS Laser Therapy
To speed recovery from foot and ankle sprains, wounds, and other conditions, our team uses FDA-approved MLS laser therapy to stimulate cellular regeneration. Painless wavelengths of infrared light deeply penetrate damaged tissue to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and stop pain. Best of all, no drugs or surgery are needed, and each session lasts about 10 to 15 minutes.
In general, the branch of sports medicine focuses on the prevention and treatment of injuries related to physical activity. At Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central PA, we diagnose and treat sprains and strains, provide biomechanical evaluations and orthotic management, and perform tendon repair and rehabilitation services.
3D Bunion Correction
Bunions, or hallux valgus, are a very common occurrence, causing painful, swollen bumps to develop on the big toe joint. To reverse these bony bumps, our team offers 3D bunion correction, otherwise known as Lapiplasty.
This treatment uses advanced fixation technology to analyze patients’ bunions in three dimensions, allowing our staff to address the root of the problem and stop the return of bunions in the future.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)
EPAT is an FDA-approved treatment that uses a specially designed applicator to administer pressure waves over an area on your foot or ankle. Over an average of three sessions, this treatment promotes metabolism, enhances blood flow, and accelerates tissue healing. Our team uses it to treat conditions like foot and heel pain, Achilles pain, tendon pain, neuromas, and trigger points.
Reconstructive Surgery of the Foot & Ankle
We use reconstructive foot and ankle surgery to treat arch issues, late-stage arthritic conditions, serious injuries, and ankle joint issues and to perform diabetic limb salvage after amputations. Every member of our team is licensed as a physician and a surgeon to perform surgical procedures that restore the form and function of feet and ankles to improve mobility and relieve pain.
4D Custom Orthotics
In partnership with Go-4D, we offer thin, lightweight 3D-printed orthotics. They use a lattice design to deliver a corrective, incredibly comfortable fit, helping to alleviate pain while you walk. By partnering with Go-4D, we are able to give our patients fully customized, high-quality orthotics that will reduce heel pressure,
Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetes can have serious foot and ankle complications, including poor circulation, neuropathy, and even infection or a loss of sensation in the feet. Our knowledgeable team can help treat pre-existing diabetic foot complications and provide preventative education to promote foot and ankle health throughout your life.
Our wound care services, including advanced wound care and skin and skin-substitute grafting, are employed to treat open lacerations on the feet and ankles that will not heal on their own. Using revolutionary techniques, we have been able to provide a solution and treatment for chronic lower extremity wounds.
