COLUMBUS – The Columbus Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic is looking to help those having problems with one of the most important appendages of the human body.
Dr. Brandon Borer, an orthopedic surgeon and podiatrist at the clinic, says that some of the most common foot issues he sees are acquired deformities such as bunions and hammer toes, as well as heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Borer says that individuals experiencing foot problems should consult with a specialist rather than going to a family doctor.
X-rays, CT scans, or even MRI scans are sometimes needed for harder to diagnose issues in the foot or ankle, and treatment options can be determined once a diagnosis is made. Columbus Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic can evaluate and treat a number of different foot and ankle ailments, including: arthritis, bunions, corns, calluses, hammer toe, plantar fasciitis, plantar warts, and tendinitis.
