Premier Foot & Ankle Center, LLC offers patients foot surgery in Worcester, open Monday through Friday. We offer specialized treatment for all types of foot problems, such as ankle sprains, Achilles tendon issues, calluses, bunions and more. Our foot orthopedics help to correct neuromuscular deformities, flat feet and post-traumatic arthritis. Those who have suffered foot trauma or acute ankle problems can also find relief at our offices.
Our orthotic devices are done with an exam to check the foot’s biomechanics first. After, a plaster foot impression is taken to create a high quality orthotic for the patient. If the patient needs foot surgery in Worcester, they may find it helpful to know that we operate in the same building as our offices at Saint Vincent hospital. The operating room is 2 floors below us. Ask us about our extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology, or non-invasive shockwave therapy.
We also treat hammertoes. Hammertoes can also cause pain and soreness in the foot, and should be treated before they become worse. Hammertoe happens when there is an imbalance between the muscle and the ligament around the toe joint. Patients should wear shoes that are wide at the toe, and which give space between the toe and tip of the shoe. Besides foot surgery in Worcester, we also provide patients with the best in heel pain treatment, foot surgeries, and digital X-rays as well as provide laser treatment for nail fungus as well as for bunions. Refraining from wearing high heels frequently and wearing appropriate shoes is also recommended for both hammertoe and calluses. Ice and aspirin can also be used to help relieve swelling. Diabetics should watch out for calluses, as they can cause foot infection if not treated or healed. Call today to find out more about our services and how we can help.
