While it might seem commonplace to visit your general practitioner once a year for your annual exam or to see your dentist every six months for preventive care, it may seem less routine to visit our Moorestown, NJ, foot doctor, Dr. Howard Abramsohn, but you may be surprised how much we could help. What is visiting us like? What issues can we tackle and treat? When should you visit us? These are all questions we are ready to answer for you.

Why should I visit a foot doctor?

There are many reasons why you may need to see us. Most people will experience foot pain at some point during their lifetime. Of course, while some pain goes away, pain that persists or gets worse will require medical attention. Simply put, a podiatrist can diagnose and treat any foot or ankle problems or injuries.

What should I expect from my visit?

A lot will depend on the issues you are dealing with. In almost all cases, we will take the time to sit down with you and discuss the symptoms you are experiencing, ask you questions about your health and medical history and then conduct a physical evaluation of the affected foot and ankle. We may also need to perform imaging tests like X-rays or an MRI in order to determine the root cause of the problem.

What problems should I turn to a foot doctor for?

Any problem that concerns the foot or the ankle is one that we can help diagnose and treat. Common foot problems include:

  • Bunions
  • Corns and calluses
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Sports injuries
  • Hammertoes
  • Fungal nail infections
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Heel pain

Can a podiatrist perform foot surgery?

Absolutely! Common procedures include plantar fascia release (to eliminate heel pain), bunionectomy (to remove a bunion), hammertoe surgery (to correct a bent toe joint), tarsal tunnel release, etc.
