For foot and ankle care in Fort Worth and Burleson, Texas, check out Lone Star Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists. Dr. Christopher Werner is a podiatrist who specializes in foot and ankle surgery. From an orthopedic standpoint, this is the best of both worlds.
Podiatrists can address a wide range of problems that affect the foot, including toe deformities, ingrown toenails, heel pain, and foot ulcers. Foot and ankle surgeons focus on repairing internal damage to the nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, and joints of the foot and ankle, often resulting from a traumatic injury or chronic ankle sprains. Rather than having to see two different doctors, you can get comprehensive foot and ankle care right here at Lone Star Ortho.
Podiatry conditions treated by Dr. Werner include:
- Achilles tendonitis/rupture
- Ankle sprain and instability
- Diabetic foot
- Heel pain
- Heel spurs
- Morton’s neuroma
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Toe deformities (bunions, claw toe, hammer toe)
- And more
We pride ourselves in treating every patient as an individual. Although we may see these conditions in a lot of patients, we recognize that no two cases are exactly alike. The primary treatment will always be the most conservative, so you don’t have to worry about surgery if your problem is minor. We can try orthotics, bracing, and wound care techniques before advancing to a surgical procedure.
If you have pain in your foot or ankle, please do not ignore it. These problems do not typically resolve without treatment. Call Lone Star Orthopaedics today and ask for an appointment with our podiatrist, Christopher Werner, DPM.
