Podiatry Q & A

What is podiatry?

Podiatry is the area of medicine that is concerned with diseases, trauma, and other conditions affecting the feet and ankles. Podiatrists like Dr. Ganjian and Dr. Tetrokalashvili are skilled in advanced techniques used to diagnose all types of foot and ankle pain and other symptoms, as well as treatments aimed at providing long-term relief of symptoms by addressing the underlying causes of symptoms.

What kinds of podiatry services does Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center provide?

Dr. Ganjian, Dr. Tetrokalashvili, and the team at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center provide a wide array of state-of-the-art treatment and care options for patients suffering from the following conditions:

  • Gout
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Athlete's foot
  • Plantar warts
  • Heel pain
  • Bunions
  • Other types of foot pain and swelling

Before any treatment is initiated, you’ll undergo a comprehensive examination and evaluation to figure out the root cause of your symptoms. This may include diagnostic imaging and other techniques to help identify the cause of your symptoms so Dr. Ganjian or Dr. Tetrokalashvili can customize your treatment plan to ensure an optimal result.

What are the most common signs and symptoms that indicate I need to see a podiatrist?

Any type of foot or ankle pain, including both localized and radiating pain, are an indication you need to be evaluated by the team at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center. Many types of pain occur without specific trauma, arising as a result of arthritis, nerve injury, bunion formation, corns and calluses, plantar fasciitis, bone spurs and other issues.

Attempting to treat ankle or foot pain with over-the-counter products like cushions, pads, or supports may mask symptoms for a time, but without proper medical care, the conditions causing symptoms can become far worse, taking a considerable toll on your mobility and your quality of life. Being evaluated is a simple process that can save you a considerable amount of pain and dysfunction.

Dr. Ganjian or Dr. Tetrokalashvili provide custom orthotics that are more effective than over-the-counter options. It’s also best to rely on their expertise for things such as corn removal and ingrown toenail surgery.
