Foot pain is quite common, but so too is the misguided notion that “it’s
not a big deal.” Whenever pain exists, it is the body’s way
of letting you know an issue needs to be addressed. Here at Houston Foot
Specialists, we evaluate the condition giving you problems and then create
an appropriate treatment plan to help you move past it.
Our professionals take pride in providing comprehensive, effective foot
and ankle services for all of our patients from across the greater Houston,
TX community. Take a moment and discover for yourself a little about who
we are and what we can do for you. We look forward to helping you overcome
your foot pain and seeing you get back to your favorite activities!
What We Believe
We believe every Houston resident should have access to effective, exceptional
foot and ankle care. This is our guiding principle as we strive for complete
foot health for all of our patients. Further, we want to make sure that
you recognize this mindset with every visit to our office.
We also believe it is absolutely essential to view every case as a new
problem, one that needs to be solved out of the context of previous issues.
The reasoning behind this is simple – your situation is not exactly
the same as the last patient’s. There are bound to be many differences,
so we treat every case with fresh eyes.
Finally, we believe you should have the right information and access to
materials that discuss your medical condition. This not only helps you
understand what you are experiencing, but also gives insight so you can
prevent future issues and know when it is time to seek professional care
here at our office.
What We Do
Essentially, we provide wide-ranging foot and ankle services to treat both
chronic and recent issues for our patients. The process begins with a
careful, accurate diagnosis. Actually understanding your medical problem
is necessary to effectively treat it. For this reason, we don’t
rush to make a snap judgement that could prove to be the wrong one.
Once we have ascertained what is happening, we will create an effective,
custom treatment plan to address it for you. This can mean different things.
Sometimes patients need to step back from activities, use ice, and take
medication. For other cases, custom orthotic devices or physical therapy
may be entailed. In rare instances, surgical intervention might be the
solution. No matter which treatment options are needed, we will make sure
you receive them.
