We offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments, including orthotics, ingrown toenail procedures, and fungus removal from toenails.
Bunion Treatment and Surgery
A bunion is a condition where a muscle imbalance in the foot causes the big toe joint to bow out. There is a tendency for bunions to be hereditary. If you have family members with bunions or an imbalance in your foot muscles, you may be at risk for developing them. Using custom orthotics and wearing wider shoes can help prevent bunions from forming. Good padding can help prevent them from becoming painful. Sometimes, surgery may be necessary to correct bunions. Most often, our foot doctor serving Leawood, KS can do the surgery in an outpatient setting so that you can go home the same day.
Heel Pain Solutions for Leawood Residents
Our foot doctors see many patients who suffer from heel pain. This may be due to plantar fasciitis, a condition where the tendon on the bottom of the foot becomes inflamed. Some people have pain and swelling at the back of the heel, caused by Achilles tendinitis. In children, heel pain is sometimes caused by Sever’s disease, which is an inflammation of the growth center of the child’s heel bone. We use a variety of treatments for these problems, including medication, physical therapy, and cryoanalgesia. Orthotics are often used to stabilize the feet.
You Don’t Have to Live with Toenail Fungus
If you notice you have thick, yellowing toenails, a fungus may be the culprit. About one in eight people suffer from this problem. Our Doctors serving Leawood, KS can evaluate the toenails to see what procedures would be most appropriate for fungus removal from your toenails. A simple, painless, ten minute laser procedure will cure toenail fungus.
