When it comes to your general foot health, the alleviation of pain, and the treatment of various conditions and ailments, we have you covered with our comprehensive foot care at the practice of Robert L. Potempa, DPM.
It is the priority of our Chicago podiatry office to get the most successful results with the simplest possible remedies. What we mean is that when it’s possible, custom made orthotics will be the treatment of choice for conditions that range from bunions and hammertoes to heel pain from plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The benefit of our orthotics is that they are made precisely to fit you, and to address the particular need that you have. Orthotics from our Chicago podiatry office redistribute your weight so that it is not putting undue stress or pressure on a particular joint or tendon. Or they sometimes provide much needed cushioning, which you may be lacking with your current footwear. However, there are some concerns that simply cannot be effectively relieved without surgery. Fortunately, we can do many of them right here, and others are performed by our foot surgeon at a nearby hospital. In all cases, however, the procedures are outpatient. You won’t have to stay overnight in a hospital. Close attention is paid to diabetic foot care, because blood sugar fluctuations can result in nerve damage, poor circulation, and damage leading to the loss of a toe, a foot, or even an entire leg in the worst cases. Among our additional services are treating fungal infections, ingrown nails, corns, and calluses.
At our Chicago podiatry office, you are getting the expertise of our specialist, just as you would want for any other body part that was ailing you. To benefit from our comprehensive foot care, please reach out to our office so that we can set up a convenient time for you to come in for an appointment.
