Keeping Your Feet Healthy

Podiatry is one of the most exciting fields in medicine today. Just ten or twenty years ago, Americans accepted that foot pain was a normal part of growing older. They also believed that foot or ankle injury would mean surgery and then bed rest for several weeks or even months.

Innovative techniques have changed all that. Today, most causes of foot and ankle pain can be permanently resolved. And, techniques like arthroscopic surgery are helping injured patients return to activity within days.

Our practice was founded by Dr. Mark Shaffer with the goal of bringing these advances to you. We are proud to offer state-of-the-art medical and surgical care for:

  • Arthritic feet and ankles
  • Bunions
  • Corns, calluses and warts
  • Fractures, crushes and other trauma
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel pain (heel spurs)
  • Sports/athletic injuries
  • Vascular problems of the foot and ankle
  • Other complex foot/ankle disorders

A Personal Touch

Our goal is to accurately identify your foot/ankle problem and, together, to plan its effective resolution. You are the most important part of this process. You can expect informative explanations, as well as ample time with Dr. Shaffer. The highlights of our approach are:

  • Innovative equipment: We use every modern technique our profession has to offer, including arthroscopic surgery, total joint replacement and physical therapy.
  • Tailored treatment plans: You care will be tailored for your comfort, activity and lifestyle. We will present you with all available treatment options.
  • Accessibility: Appointments are easily available, and you can usually be seen the same week that you call. You should also know that we do not overbook appointments. Your time is absolutely reserved so that any waiting will be minimal.
