The human foot is an extremely complex system of small bones, ligaments, joints, tendons and muscles that must support and provide mobility to the rest of the body. The feet have to move between 100 – 200 pounds (on average) with each step going against the natural forces of gravity. It is not hard to imagine how this complex organ, the foot can begin to wear down from use, develop arthritis, become injured or misaligned. When something happens to the foot a podiatrist, whom is a specially trained doctor dealing only with feet and ankles can diagnose the problem and provide treatment including foot surgery Shady Hills.
Foot surgery Shady Hills requires small instruments and fine techniques but in addition the foot must return to shoes, walking and the deforming forces of gravity after surgery. A foot specialist, whose career and training only involves feet, is where your feet belong when it comes to foot surgery. Using high tech diagnostic and treatment instruments and machines, Dr. Donald J. Adamov, DPM offers the most advanced surgical care available in our office and hospital environments.

Foot surgery Shady Hills is just a part of the treatment options that our practice can provide to patients based on their individual conditions. Generally, our doctor will try the most conservative treatment option before recommending surgery. The goal is to alleviate the patient’s discomfort and pain and to restore normal walking activity. This relief can be permanent or at least temporary until surgery can be done at a more convenient time for the patient. Other treatment options can involve cushioning or changes in footwear, orthotics, scraping calluses, corns and other conditions as well as medications.
