The feet and ankles are a powerhouse for balance, posture, and ambulation, providing stability and support and enabling fundamental movements such as jumping, turning, and pivoting. Unfortunately, doing so much makes these complex, hardworking body parts vulnerable to wide-ranging injuries, disorders, and other ailments.
Don’t let podiatric pain or discomfort limit your mobility or threaten your quality or enjoyment of life. Turn to Annapolis Foot & Ankle Center for the exceptional care you need to get back on your feet.
Our board-certified podiatric surgeons provide world-class medical and surgical care for all conditions affecting the feet, ankles, and lower legs. We even tackle complex, difficult-to-treat issues—such as Charcot foot, diabetic ulcers, and other foot wounds—that many area health care providers prefer not to address. Here’s what you should know about the conditions we treat at our Central Maryland podiatry practice.
Skin and Nails
Everyone wants their feet to look their best, but diligent care for your skin and toenails isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. It can help you prevent harmful infections and wounds—or catch them in their earliest stages. Examples of skin and nail conditions we treat include:
- Corns, calluses, blisters
- Dry skin and heel fissures (cracked heels)
- Plantar warts
- Athletes foot
- Fungal toenails
- Ingrown toenails
Dangerous Lower Extremity Wounds
At Annapolis Foot & Ankle Center, wound care and limb salvage is our passion and a primary focus of our practice. Our Chesapeake Amputation Prevention Center delivers specialized therapies to patients with diabetic ulcers and other slow-healing wounds needing to recover and regain mobility. We're proud to be your Central Maryland center for excellence in amputation prevention.
Sports Injuries and Trauma
Sports injuries and other lower extremity traumas do more than interrupt your athletic goals. Without proper care, they can develop into long-term problems. Take turf toe, for example. What starts as a sprain of the main joint of the big toe can lead to chronic pain, progressive deformity, and eventual joint degeneration. We treat all sports- and trauma-related injuries, including:
- Bruising and swelling
- Strains and sprains
- Foot, ankle, and toe fractures
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel spurs
- Achilles tendinitis and Achilles tendon ruptures
- Other tendon injuries
- Chronic ankle instability
Caused by the misalignment of bones, structural foot deformities can be present at birth or acquired over time. We capably treat all podiatric deformities, providing highly skilled conservative management or surgical correction for:
- Claw toes
- Mallet toes
- Flat foot
- High arches
Other Issues We Treat
We also provide top-notch treatment for:
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Neuromas (including Morton’s neuroma)
- Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout)
- Drop foot (also known as foot drop)
Children’s Foot Concerns
Children can experience many of the same foot issues as adults, as well as some that are specific to their age group. We provide gentle, effective podiatric care for pediatric patients experiencing issues such as:
- Pediatric flat foot
- Toe walking
- Heel pain (Sever's disease)
- Growth plate problems
