Foot Treatments & Surgery
Hit The Ground Running With Our Foot Treatments & Surgery
How many steps do you walk a day? The average person takes approximately 6,000. For some, that’s 6000 moments of pain. When conservative treatments aren’t resolving your condition, surgical procedures may be necessary. Dr. Nik’s Foot & Ankle Center is guaranteed to solve any foot affliction.BookAn Appointment
Foot Conditions We Treat
Arthritis generally refers to joint inflammation. It may be caused by more than 100 diseases, as well as a variety of genetic factors and normal “wear-and-tear.” No matter which of your 30 foot joints is affected, arthritis can be debilitating. We’re here to help.
Our lower extremities can handle a lot of pressure; they’re there for us when we walk, run, exercise, and more. That’s why foot fractures can be excruciatingly painful, especially when considering their weight-bearing responsibility. Even minor fractures require comprehensive medical attention in order to heal correctly and avoid future injury.
Foot ulcers are typically the result of excess pressure and develop in patients with poor circulation. These wounds range in depth from surface-level to deep craters at-risk for infection. They tend to develop in patients with diabetes and vascular disease. If left untreated, ulcers are not only painful, but likely to cause extremity amputation.
Bunions are painful, bony bumps that develop along the inside of the big toe joint. They may also be referred to as hallux valgus. Certain activities may accelerate their progression, but bunions are most commonly the result of structural deformities and gait abnormalities. Bunions require conscious shoe-wearing decisions, orthotics, and often, surgery.

Regenerative medicine is the newest in molecular biology technology. At our clinic, we use both stem cell therapy and plasma-rich platelet treatment to remedy a variety of disorders. These medical procedures concentrate the healing molecules in your body at sites of injury and pain, allowing you to recover faster.
When conservative treatments prove ineffective, surgical means may be necessary. At Dr. Nik’s, we use surgeries to correct an assortment of foot disorders. We may recommend surgery for you if you’re suffering from metatarsal or toe deformities, Achilles tendon disorders, plantar fasciitis, neuromas, or structural weakness.
Local Wound Care
Especially in diabetic patients, it is absolutely essential to seek podiatric medical care immediately. Ulcers run the risk of becoming infected, which more often than not results in amputation. Our local wound care includes removal of any dead skin and tissue, called “debridement,” as well as medication application, dressing of the wound, and ulcer prevention.
A hallux valgus, or bunion, is irreversible. Treatment is imperative to pain-free walking. Splints, orthotics, and better footwear may all be suggested. However, surgery is the most common and often resolves the problem. Depending on the severity, different surgeries are available. Your care provider will discuss all options with you to pick the best treatment plan.
