At Premiere Foot and Ankle, we follow the philosophy that for optimal patient care, education and a team approach are key. Dr. Hudson will take the time to listen to your concerns and with advanced technology and clinical skills, diagnose and help treat and relieve your pain in a cooperative approach.
Isn’t Pain Normal?
Pain and discomfort are not normal. This can be a sign of an underlying issue that needs to be evaluated and treated by a Foot and Ankle Specialist.
Is Surgery My Only Option?
Absolutely not. Conservative therapy in a stepwise approach is utilized if at all possible. Surgery is only recommended if other options are not feasible or have failed.
Why See a Foot and Ankle Surgeon?
There are 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles and tendons in the foot. We are consistently on our feet, and as the foundation of your body, painful feet and ankles can affect your entire body. Seeing an appropriate specialist, like a podiatrist, ensures you are receiving the best care possible for your foot and ankle conditions.
When Should I Make an Appointment?
Although there are many reasons to see a physician, sometimes it isn’t obvious that you need to seek help. Often, we can tolerate these symptoms for a long time, but eventually they catch up with us, and our quality of life is significantly decreased. Here are some of the services and conditions we provide and address:
• Fracture repair of the foot and ankle • Bunions • Heel pain • Flatfoot • Sports injuries • Hammertoes • Tendon disorders • Neuropathy • Foreign body injuries • Amputation prevention • Tendinosis • Ingrown toenails • Nail fungus • Warts • Ankle instability • Diabetic foot care & complications • Bone infections/healing • Ankle and foot arthritis • Foot and ankle trauma • Neuromas • Charcot • High Arches • Poor circulation • Impaired ability to function in certain conditions • Discomfort while standing • Abnormal growth
