Excellence in Foot Care: What to Expect

At Advanced Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our foot specialists strive to provide the best foot care available in northwest Kentucky.

Our medical experts have extensive knowledge about the foot as well as the different types of foot conditions and injuries patients may experience. They also understand that each patient is unique. That’s why they are committed to taking a patient-centered approach to care to provide each patient with the best treatment solution.

When developing a personalized treatment plan, our orthopedic foot doctors and podiatrists will first recommend any applicable conservative treatment options before recommending surgery. Nonsurgical treatments may include receiving physical therapy from a physical therapist, wearing a brace or custom orthotics, or taking a prescribed medication. Many times, these measures can bring about gradual improvements that can greatly reduce or eliminate the foot pain you are experiencing.

However, if nonoperative care is not effective or becomes less effective over time, our foot surgeons will discuss your surgical options and help you determine which one is right for you. Rest assured that our surgical experts not only have the expertise and exceptional skills needed to perform the required surgery, but they also have access to leading-edge surgical equipment, which helps to ensure the best outcomes possible.

If our surgeons believe that a special type of surgery is the best option for your injury or condition, they will educate you on the full process and the steps involved in your recovery as well as answer any questions you may have.
