Greetings! I started this blog to talk about foot problems.
As a podiatrist in New York City (NYC) I get to see so many diverse foot problems. The name of the blog came from my Google Analytics. The most searched term to find me on Google has been “Best Podiatrist NYC”. So, as a humble person, I cannot take credit for the title completely. Below is a screenshot of last week’s Google Analytics for my website www.cityfootcare.com: (Click any picture to enlarge).
What I would like to do is present actual cases of my patients that come in. (Names withheld of course.) Every day I see the usual common problems like plantar fasciitis (heel pain), neuromas (nerve pain), ingrown toe nails, nail fungus (onychomycosis), tendonitis, joint pain, fractures, bunions, hammertoes, arthritis, joint dislocations, soft tissue injuries, tendon tears, ligament tears (strains and sprains), and many other common foot problems. Additionally, everyday more obscure pathologies come in that challenge my diagnostic abilities. I do x-rays, ultrasounds, fluoroscopy and MRI’s.
Every Friday I do foot surgery. This is the most rewarding part of my job. Here, I get to use my mechanical ability to go in there and fix things. Prior to going to medical school I did carpentry work in order to pay for University. I am really good with my hands and tools. I am able to think analytically and visualize the anatomy in three dimensions. I love to modify and refine old procedures as they apply to each individual’s unique pathology in my surgeries. I like to think that my surgical abilities are truly a gift and I love to teach my residents to be better surgeons. My residents love working with me and learning things that other podiatrists don’t teach them.
Going forward I will try to write a little bit here and there and talk about podiatry and anything else that comes to mind. Being my first post I doubt many people will see this, but hopefully I’ll build a following. Please feel free to email me and comment. I will write back.
