About Dr. Schikman’s Foot and Ankle Center

Our podiatry practice specializes in diagnosing and treating all disorders and conditions of the feet and ankles. Feet problems can affect people of all ages, but are most common in older people, diabetics and athletes. Podiatrists provide medical and surgical treatment of foot conditions that are caused by injury, disease or genetics.

Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints and 100s of ligaments, muscles and tendons that are all under frequent pressure from daily activities. This puts the foot at high risk for injury and other damage. 75 percent of Americans will experience foot problems at some point in their lives.

Because the foot is such an important part of our daily lives, it often requires specialized care from a podiatrist. Foot problems can affect the bones, joints, muscles or skin of the area and all highly susceptible to damage.

Common foot conditions that we treat include:

  • Athlete's foot
  • Blisters
  • Bunions
  • Corns and calluses
  • Foot odor
  • Hammertoe
  • Heel pain
  • Heel spurs
  • Infections
  • Ingrown nails
  • Neuromas
  • Sports injuries
  • Warts

Podiatry also covers treatment of foot and ankle trauma, sports medicine, overuse injuries, infection and diabetic foot care.
