At the offices of Robert L. Potempa, DPM we provide patients with Chicago foot care for various foot ailments such as calluses, bunions, hammertoes and ankle and foot pain. We also use a 10 minute 3 stitch procedure for plantar fasciitis if orthotics do not work. We have been serving the Chicago area for many years with the best in foot care and our patients have many good things to say about us. We accept a wide range of payment methods, insurances and other ways to pay for foot care.
We treat problems like corns and calluses, and Athlete’s Foot, a fungal infection. Calluses are hard pieces of skin that build up on toes or feet. They can be softened with treatment. Besides Chicago foot care, we also create custom made foot orthotics. Foot orthotics are custom made shoes used for patients who suffer from foot problems like heel pain and hammertoes. They’re also used for bunions. Bunions affect the joint of the big toe. If the bunions become restrictive, surgery is also an option to relieve bunions.
Our Chicago foot care office uses minimally invasive procedures before opting out for surgery of the foot. We also hammertoe, which happens when there is an imbalance between the muscle and the ligament around the toe joint. Refraining from high heels and wearing appropriate shoes helps hammer toe and bunions. Wearing improper footwear with poor heel support can contribute to bunions and foot problems. We also perform surgery for nails, feet and ankles, treatment for Achilles tendonitis, gout and orthotics and care for warts, ulcers and fractures. We are open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Check our website for hours and to learn more about our services. We are here to serve you and make sure that you’re covered in every way with your foot care.
