Podiatry Q & A

What is a podiatrist?

A podiatrist is often nicknamed a “foot doctor” because they have extensive training in treating all ailments of your feet, as well as your ankles and lower legs. Podiatrists diagnose, treat, and manage all issues of your lower extremities, including:

  • Chronic conditions, like arthritis
  • Skin conditions and wounds
  • Diabetic foot issues
  • Personal injuries
  • Sports injuries

While podiatry care often focuses on conservative treatments, your podiatrist can also often perform surgical repairs using the most advanced minimally invasive tools and techniques.

Do I need podiatry care?

Podiatry care involves treating any pain or discomfort you may currently have, while also helping you heal and prevent further issues. You may need podiatry care if you have or experience:

  • Slow-healing wounds or ingrown toenails
  • Nerve pain, like neuromas
  • Limited range of motion
  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Strains or sprains
  • Corns or calluses
  • Broken bones
  • Nail fungus
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel pain
  • Bunions

It’s also important to seek podiatry care at Katy Foot Doctor if you suffer from pain, tenderness, or soreness in your feet or ankles that’s starting to affect your job, exercise or sporting activities, or daily routine. Plus, you may need urgent podiatry care if you suffered from trauma and suspect you have a bone fracture or ruptured tendon or ligament.

How often should I see a podiatrist?

At Katy Foot Doctor, you meet with Dr. Bruscia, who’s a board-certified podiatrist and highly skilled foot and ankle surgeon. Once he treats your current condition and schedules you for any essential follow-up visits, he often suggests coming in about once or twice a year for preventive care and maintenance. Preventive podiatry management is especially important if you:

  • Have diabetes or arthritis
  • Have a history of sports injuries
  • Are beginning a new sporting activity
  • Are an athlete or exercise regularly

Dr. Bruscia partners with your primary care doctor, orthopedist, or another specialist to ensure your podiatry care plan is incorporated into your overall wellness plan and preventive care management.
