TREATING FLAT FEET

Corns and calluses often develop on feet and toes when your skin tries to protect itself against friction. In a healthy person, corns need to be treated only if they cause discomfort. Sometimes it can be as simple as eliminating the source of friction to cure a corn, however sometimes a surgical procedure may be required. Dr. Aakruti Bhalja is an expert in treating corns. If you noted corns or calluses on your feet or toes, Dr Bhalja will obtain x-rays and/or MRI to evaluate the extent of injury, perform an extensive physical examination, and review the surgical and non-surgical options to reduce pain and deformity. She will also discuss recovery time, return to work and activity.

Dr. Bhalja is a highly reviewed Flat Foot Surgical

WHAT CAUSES FLAT FEET?

In infants and toddlers with flat feet are normal as their arch is not developed. As a child grows, the arch develops. This however does not happen in some children. People without arches or with a low arch may or may not have foot problems. In some people, as they get older an arch can fall! Ouch. This happens after years of wear that weakens the arch support tendons.

Talk to your doctor if you have flat feet!!!
