Westside Podiatry treats your injuries, infections, and wound complications with urgency and compassion.

 

Westside Podiatry group is proud to offer same or next day appointments for your urgent foot care needs.  The following are common injury and wound care conditions that we see.

If you are experiencing any of these issues- or if you have any other concerns for your feet- schedule an appointment today.


Fractures and Dislocations

Have you experienced a recent injury that is affecting your feet? Westside Podiatry is here to offer treatment for fractures and dislocations.  All of our locations offer  x-rays in-office at the time of your scheduled appointment.  We see patients that come to us directly, as well as those that are referred to us as a follow up from an emergency room visit.  We provide a number of treatment options including casting, immobilization, and surgical correction if necessary.


Diabetic Foot Ulcers

When patients with diabetes develop ulcers or wounds on their feet, there is a cause for concern for developing an infection.  Our team at Westside Podiatry will work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan to prevent limb loss.  Your podiatrist will encourage on-going, follow up visits to promote healing and prevent future complications.


Foreign Bodies

We understand that accidents can happen when it comes to your feet.  For those times when you step on something sharp or get an object stuck in your foot, Westside Podiatry is here to help.  The presence of a foreign body in the foot is cause for concern for more serious infection.  We offer x-rays in-office to help to understand the injury and work to remove the object.  Removal can take place in-office or by scheduling a surgical procedure, if necessary.
