Podiatrist Examining a Client's Foot and LegSuffering from a painful or persistent podiatric issue can throw a wrench in your plans and disrupt your daily routine. At Annapolis Foot & Ankle Center and Chesapeake Amputation Prevention Center, we know that you're eager to get back to your favorite activities. That's why our board-certified podiatric surgeons and wound care experts provide a comprehensive range of services to help you recover quickly and safely. 

Diagnostic Testing

Our highly skilled Central Maryland podiatrists diagnose and treat all manner of foot, ankle, and lower leg conditions. We offer complete care that includes biomechanical assessments to evaluate your gait and foot structure, as well as noninvasive vascular testing to assess blood flow and circulation. To ensure the most accurate diagnosis, we use advanced technology such as onsite X-ray and diagnostic ultrasound. These state-of-the-art tools allow us to identify the root cause of your pain or discomfort and develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and preferences.

Custom Orthotics

Orthotics are shoe inserts that can help correct or prevent certain foot problems by aligning and supporting the foot and ankle and improving lower extremity function. While prefabricated orthotics are available over the counter, custom orthotics are specifically made to the exact dimensions of your feet and to meet your precise needs. Our foot and ankle specialists can help you determine if orthotics are right for you.

Advanced Therapies

At Annapolis Foot & Ankle Center, we're dedicated to staying up to date with the latest and most effective research, techniques, and advancements in podiatric medicine. We constantly seek new ways to enhance our expertise, ensuring that we provide the highest quality care to our patients and remain at the forefront of our field.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), and other similar treatments work by increasing circulation and growth factors at the site of the injury. By harnessing the body's own healing power, these therapies can effectively relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Wound Care and Limb Salvage

Annapolis Foot & Ankle Center is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of diabetics and other patients with serious wounds that endanger the lower extremities. Our renowned Chesapeake Amputation Prevention Center is Central Maryland’s premier choice for excellence in specialty wound treatment. We’re proud to provide this vital service that improves our patients’ health and helps them live longer and better.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Options

The possibility of needing surgery is one of the biggest concerns our podiatry patients have and, while we try to resolve issues with conservative methods when we can, there are times when a surgical procedure can offer the best results. Fortunately, our world-class podiatric surgeons offer minimally invasive surgical options for a variety of common complaints, most of which are performed on an outpatient basis and require significantly reduced downtown. Ask us about minimally invasive bunion correction, ankle arthroscopy, endoscopic plantar fasciotomy, and other minimally invasive procedures we perform.

Replacement and Reconstructive Surgeries

Some conditions require a more invasive surgical approach. Thankfully, you’ve come to the right place for expertise in open surgery. Our podiatrists have the extensive surgical training and skill necessary to repair, replace, or reconstruct components in the lower extremities. We specialize in a variety of procedures, such as cartilage repair or replacement, hammertoe correction, bone lengthening, joint replacement, Charcot foot and ankle reconstruction, and many others.
