“It all starts with caring.”

This is the philosophy of our podiatrists, Drs. Nirenberg & Minhas, heel, foot and ankle specialists in Northwest Indiana.

Please feel free to explore our site and learn about our podiatrists, our team, our many podiatry services and get to know our practice. We hope you'll see that at Friendly Foot Care our goal is to work with you to alleviate pain, achieve superb heel, foot and ankle health, and create the best podiatry experience possible in Northwest Indiana.

Our entire practice atmosphere is designed to help you relax and alleviate your heel, foot and ankle problems as quickly as possible (please see our photos section).

Our expert foot and ankle podiatrists are trained in all aspects of heel, foot and ankle care and surgery, and there are few podiatric problems they cannot treat.

More than providing Northwest Indiana with superb, state-of-the-art expert foot and ankle care, our podiatrists go about treating patients quite differently. Our physicians try to get to know each patient and cater to their special needs. For example, if you have an out-patient heel, foot or ankle procedure your doctor will personally call you the next day.

Some examples of the special treatment you can expect include:

  • Laser surgery for plantar warts and other foot and ankle problems.
  • Our foot experts use tiny incision arthroscopic surgery for ankle pain and ankle arthritis.
  • Revolutionary PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment for foot, ankle and Achilles tendon pain. To learn more about PRP Click Here.
  • Electronic Medical Records (securely encrypted) with online "portal" access.
  • Heel pain treated with the revolutionary Endoscopic Release Procedure.
  • I.V. Sedation or "twilight sleep" is available.
  • In-office vascular testing to check for circulation problems.
  • Specialized diagnostic foot and ankle ultrasound to accurately diagnosis podiatric problems.
  • For patients who need surgery, we often use a "plastic surgery" closure technique - this means there are no sutures to take out and often the scar is less visible.
  • In-office x-ray, specifically designed for evaluating heel, foot and ankle problems.
  • Skilled at alleviating nerve problems and neuropathy (our podiatrists use the techniques of Dr. Lee Dellon, a world renown peripheral neurosurgeon).
  • Our podiatrists utilize Swiss the screw compression technique to alleviate bunions and other heel, foot and ankle problems.
  • Skilled at correcting flat feet and fallen arches with the tiny MBA implant.
  • Our podiatry foot and ankle experts utilize the wound vacuum, artificial skin grafts, hyperbaric oxygen and antibiotic impregnated beads to treat infections and wounds.
  • State-of-the-art flouroscan x-ray lets us podiatric experts see the bones in your foot and ankle "live" as you move them.
  • We are open Saturdays and evening appointments are available.
  • Convenient Northwest Indiana location on Broadway, just south of the VA Clinic and across from Ace Hardware.
  • Ample parking and the building and office are handicap accessible (we have extra wide hallways to accommodate wheelchairs).
  • Most insurance and Workers Compensation accepted.
  • All major credit cards accepted.
  • We offer affordable payment plans.

For your convenience, we try to schedule appointments around your schedule, and make every effort to see patients who are in pain within 48 hours, and we file insurance for you.

As you read through our podiatrist and team bios you'll notice that we choose our team members carefully -- not solely on clinical knowledge and professional qualifications, but on their attitude as well. Our staff has even been trained by the Disney Institute (read about our Disney training by Clicking Here).

Incidentally, our podiatrists have treated over 10,000 feet! And Dr. Nirenberg is one of the few forensic podiatrists in the U.S. who has helped convict criminals (Click Here).

Finally, as Northwest Indiana's premier heel, foot and ankle podiatry experts, we constantly strive to keep up with the latest pain-relieving breakthroughs and improve ourselves in every aspect of podiatry practice.
