Westside Podiatry works with you to offer care you can trust for your little one’s feet.

Whether it’s an sports injury, accident, or wart- our team is prepared to provide the best care for your child’s feet problems.  The following are common conditions we see for pediatric foot care. 

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


Warts

We treat warts on the feet of kids of all ages.  The most common warts that we see are plantar warts, small growths of tissue that come from a viral infection on the bottom of the foot.  The team at Westside Podiatry offers pain-free, in-office treatment to begin removal of the wart on the day of your scheduled appointment.  Your podiatrist may encourage follow-up visits to create care plan to keep the wart from coming back.


Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails can happen at any age and may cause pain and swelling around the toenail that can be a cause for concern for future infection.  Westside Podiatry offers in-office treatment options at your child’s scheduled appointment.  We will create a care plan to provide for a speedy recovery, with follow up visits to make sure that the issue is resolved and future infection in prevented.


Pediatric Flatfoot

When children have flat feet it can be painful and cause for concern.  In other cases, your child may be referred to a podiatrist to prevent future issues.  Either way, our staff will work with your family to understand the problem.  Westside Podiatry offers in-office x-rays at the time of your appointment.  We create a treatment plan that can vary from inserts to more corrective options.  Our staff works with you to ensure the best outcomes for your little one.


Foot Injuries

At West Side Podiatry, we understand that children can be accident prone.  Whether your child experienced a fall, a sports injury, stepped on a piece of glass, or is experiencing mysterious pain- we offer on-site x-rays to determine the cause and location of the injury.  Your podiatrist will work with you to create a care plan that may include in-office and surgical treatment.
