The doctors at Burbank Podiatry Associates Group are specialists in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries. After treating the immediate condition, the doctors will determine the factors that produced the injury to prevent its recurrence. Treatment may include exercise, physical therapy, shoe modifications, orthotics and occasionally surgery.
Many people suffer from foot and leg pain and fatigue. This is frequently due to abnormal gait patterns such as excessive flatfooted ness or pronation. At Burbank Podiatry Associates Group we fabricate foot orthoses (custom-molded shoe inserts) which allow people to walk or run with optimum efficiency.
We are experts in evaluating and treating foot and ankle injuries that occur while working. The doctors are familiar with Workers’ Compensation laws of California.
There are many podiatric conditions that can be effectively eliminated surgically, such as bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, cysts and bone spurs. We are also equipped with the latest laser technology to treat warts, nail disorders and other soft tissue lesions. Most foot/ankle surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis. The patient may be allowed to walk on the operated foot the day of the surgery. Many surgeries performed on the foot/ankle can be done under local or general anesthesia. Our doctors are on staff at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, Glendale Memorial Hospital, Motion Picture and Television Hospital, and Alameda Surgery Center.
