Advanced Treatment Options

We pride ourselves on offering the most advanced technology and techniques for our patients. Medicine is constantly evolving, and we work hard to stay on the leading edge of the latest research, so we can help you get back on your feet as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Here are just a few of the state-of-the-art tools and procedures we’re putting to use for our patients every day:

Surgery Alternatives and Regenerative Medicine
Some of our technologies offer an effective alternative to surgery when it comes to tough, chronic pain. If more traditional conservative therapies haven’t produced effective results, these advanced treatments are your best bet to finding relief through non-invasive means. They may be used independently, or in combination with one another to achieve the best results.
LunulaLaser® Treatment for Fungal Nails

The FDA-approved, non-invasive LunulaLaser targets the fungus and stimulate an average of 6.1 mm* new clear nail growth at 6 months. Learn more.

Electrical Nerve Stimulation for Neuropathy
This technology is changing the game for sufferers of peripheral neuropathy. Until very recently, doctors didn’t have many effective treatment options for nerve damage in the feet—existing damage was thought to be mostly permanent, and drug treatments carried the risk of side effects. But electrical stimulation has been a breakthrough. A gentle electrical current stimulates the nerve pathways, which safely reduces pain. For many patients, the relief is long-lasting, and some sensation may even return.
Endoscopic Tarsal Tunnel Decompression
Nerves often have to wind their way through narrow tunnels and around muscle and bone, and can get constricted and compressed under certain circumstances. This happens often in the tarsal tunnel of the ankle, and treatment may require a surgery to release, or “decompress,” the constriction. Our clinic is one of a very few in the country trained to perform this procedure.
Weight-Bearing CT Scanner
Computerized tomography (CT) scanners take a series of X-rays from multiple angles, then combine and process them digitally in order to create high-quality cross-sectional images of your body—with much more detail than a simple X-ray. However, a traditional CT scan requires the patient to lie down in the machine. That’s a problem for podiatry, since the structure of the foot can change when standing. However, our weight-bearing CT scanner allows us to take pictures while the feet are bearing weight, which can significantly aid in the diagnosis and treatment plan of many foot deformities.
Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment method for a wide range of injuries, including muscle pain, tendinitis, arthritis, and more. We start by placing a contact gel on your skin, above the painful area. Then, a hand-held applicator tool uses bursts of compressed air to generate radial shock waves through the body. When applied to injured tissues, these waves not only reduce your feelings of pain, but increase blood flow and trigger stem cell activation to repair and heal your injury faster.
Stem Cell Injections
Injections of stem-cell-rich material allows our team to effectively treat diabetic wounds, as well as chronic injuries. Traditional steroid injections only address pain by producing an anti-inflammatory effect; they do not treat the cause. By contrast, stem-cell-rich injections not only fight pain, but also produce a cell regeneration effect that can actually help your body heal. Our stem cell injections come from an FDA-registered tissue bank that uses rigorously screened amniotic (NOT fetal or embryonic) tissues, voluntarily donated after healthy births.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive (also known as minimal incision) surgery uses specialized tools and much smaller incisions than standard surgical techniques. Instead of one large opening, we may only need one or two very small (several millimeters) ones to do the work. This offers numerous benefits to the patient, including faster recovery time (quicker return to walking, shoes, work, etc.), less scarring, less pain, and lower risk of complications.
Ankle Implants
Your ankles are, obviously, critically important to healthy activity, mobility, and full independence. However, severe injuries or years of progressively worsening arthritis can cause searing pain and significantly reduce range of motion. For those with serious ankle problems, ankle implants can take the place of worn down joint surfaces, allowing smooth motion and a return to fuller activity.
