Isn’t It Time You Saw a Wellington Foot Doctor?
Did you know that about a quarter of the bones in your body are located in your feet?
These bones and other structures aren’t just critical to maintaining mobility. They also act as stabilizers and shock absorbers for the rest of your body. When something goes wrong with your feet or lower extremities, the issue will eventually impact your overall health and well-being.
Occasional foot pain is normal. But no matter your age, you should schedule an appointment with our Wellington foot doctor if you experience any discomfort that lasts more than a few days or weeks.
Our Foot, Ankle & Wound Care Services
Dr. Garzon and her staff are committed to delivering the best podiatric medical and surgical services in a prompt, efficient, and courteous manner, with an emphasis on each patient’s comfort.
- Achilles Tendon Surgery: Connecting the calf muscles to the heel, the Achilles tendon is the body’s largest tendon. You won’t be able to walk if it’s torn, ruptured, or degenerated.
- Foot/Ankle Fracture Surgery: Many patients wrongly assume a fracture of the foot or ankle is merely a sprain. The bone may require either stabilization or surgery, depending on the fracture points.
- Arthritis Joint Surgery: Debridement or fusion surgery can relieve arthritis-related foot pain, depending on the affected area.
- Bunion Surgery: Bunions are a deformity of bones and soft tissue caused by wearing narrow or tight footwear. The deformity can be corrected through surgery and properly fitted footwear.
- Diabetic Foot Care: People with diabetes are prone to slow-healing wounds, foot ulcers, and even lower-extremity amputations. Including a podiatrist in your diabetes care reduces the risk of amputation by 85% and lowers the risk of hospitalization by 24%.
- Custom Orthotics: Custom orthotics are a type of insole created from a mold of your foot. The finished product reduces stress on your body by helping your foot and ankle align in the most anatomically favorable position.
- Flat Foot Surgery: By combining several surgical procedures, Dr. Garzon can repair ligaments and tendons, correct bone deformities, and return support to the arch.
- Ganglion Cyst/Soft Tissue Mass Removal: A Ganglion cyst is a benign mass of jelly-like fluid originating from a tendon sheath or joint capsule. Depending on severity and placement, the cyst may be drained or surgically removed.
- Hammer Toe Surgery: A hammer toe forms when a toe bends upward at the joint, usually due to a genetic deformity, muscle imbalance, or poor-fitting shoes or heels. Dr. Garzon performs tendon transfer surgery, joint re-sectioning, or a fusion procedure to correct this condition effectively.
- Nerve Decompression: Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) can cause chronic numbness and tingling in the foot. Nerve decompression surgery relieves tightness in the area, allowing blood to circulate freely and reversing DPN’s effects.
- Plantar Fasciitis Surgery: While non-invasive treatments sometimes resolve this painful condition, other cases may require surgery. Dr. Garzon performs a minimally-invasive endoscopic plantar fasciotomy, which allows the patient to ambulate immediately after surgery.
- Tendon Repair Surgery: Repairing a torn or damaged tendon, either by sewing it back together or grafting with another tendon, restores mobility.
- Toenail Fungus Treatment: If toenail fungus fails to respond to non-invasive treatments, Dr. Garzon will perform an in-office surgical procedure to remove the nail and apply an antifungal directly to the surface of the infection.
- Wound Care: Garzon specializes in treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers and other lower-extremity wounds that are slow to heal due to diabetes or another medical condition.
