About three out of every four Americans will experience serious foot problems in their lifetime. Women are about four times as likely to experience foot problems as men, and high heels are partially responsible for the higher incidence of foot issues for women.
The Podiatry Clinic at UAMS offers patients all types of foot care except surgery. Our clinic is located within the Diabetes Clinic, and it is not unusual for people who have diabetes to also have problems with their feet. Diabetes can cause nerve damage that reduces sensation in your feet. If you have neuropathy, or a disorder of the nerves, you may have a foot injury or condition that requires medical care without even knowing it.
Our Podiatry Clinic is open to all patients of all ages. Our caring doctors can help with diabetic foot care and general foot care, and we practice conservative, nonsurgical foot care.
Our podiatrists care for all types of foot conditions including:
- Ingrown toenails
- Heel pain
- Foot pain
- Plantar warts
- Foot ulcers
- Fungal infections
- Arch pain
We can also consult with you about needs that you may have for orthotics. We will help you find the best fit for your individual needs.
Whether you have a callus or a problem with circulation, our highly-qualified team can help treat your individual condition. Depending on your medical insurance, you may contact our clinic directly to make an appointment, or you may need a referral from your primary care doctor. If you have an emergency situation, we will try to work you in as quickly as possible.
