Podiatrists/foot doctors are medical experts who specialize in the treatment of heel, foot and ankle pain and problems. Since our podiatrists perform foot and ankle surgery, some people refer to them as foot surgeons or as podiatric surgeons. Podiatrists have the suffix after their name “D.P.M.” These initials—D.P.M—stand for Doctor of Podiatric Medicine.
Whether you call our physicians podiatrists, D.P.Ms, foot doctors or foot surgeons, when you meet them you will see that their main goal is to give you the most thorough, complete, and friendly heel, foot and ankle care… Or simply, the best podiatry experience possible in Northwest Indiana.
Once you meet our podiatrists, you will also quickly see why our patients not only come from Northwest Indiana, but from throughout Indiana and even the country.
