Innovative New York PodiatristGeorge Harrison wrote “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” This applies to many things, even foot treatment. If you don’t have a good medical diagnosis for your foot pain, then you are guessing and that’s not the way it should be. That’s not what doctors are put here on this earth to do. As men and women of science they have the knowledge and capabilities to determine the type of problems you are facing and what should be done about them.

At Adler Footcare the technology is available to determine the type of problem, what’s causing it, and how to treat it. Whether it be a nerve problem, bone problem, walking problem, having to do with hereditary factors, circulation etc., a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare will look at all these things before doing anything.

Imagine this: You’re standing with your eyes closed on a high board, overlooking a pool. You jump. Wouldn’t you like to know there’s some water there before you land? It’s the same with diagnosing. Wouldn’t you like to know what you’re being diagnosed for, instead of going in blindly not knowing if you’ll sink or swim?

The Latest Piece of Diagnostic Equipment at Adler Footcare

When you’re treated by a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare, they will find out everything they can about your feet using the latest technology they can get their hands on. Adler Footcare just obtained and is beta testing the pedCAT® – a combination x-ray and CAT-scan specifically for the feet and ankles. Traditionally CAT-scans have always been helpful diagnostically, but they use a lot of radiation so have been limited in their use. Now, the company Curve Beam has developed the pedCAT® that gives doctors new information they could never get before.

The scan produces an x-ray that slices the foot bone into layers and allows podiatrists to look inside the bone for cysts, growths, circulation issues, or bony blockages. A New York podiatrist will also be able to see bone infections, old injuries, etc. that wouldn’t have normally been seen before. Once the problem is determined, a treatment can be recommended. The pedCAT® has been very helpful in showing whether or not a patient is a candidate for HyProCure.

HyProCure Treatment®

HyProCure® is an amazing device that helps correct the way people walk. It’s kind of like Lasik for the foot. The nearly painless procedure is performed by a New York podiatrist inserting a stent into the existing space just below the ankle joint. A patient can expect three days in a bandage then back into normal shoes. It will be sweeping the nation soon!

Adler Footcare is recognized as a Center of Excellence by the company GraMedica that invented the HyProCure® device. This means the practice is using the device properly and is a safe, effective place to get the procedure done. It’s like getting a seal of approval. Dr. Adler, Dr. Kulhan and Dr. Tievsky have performed over 150 of the HyProCure® procedures and have each received the title of Master Surgeon, awarded once a doctor performs over 30 of the HyProCure® procedures.

The more advanced the podiatry industry gets with technology, the safer treatments get. Adler Footcare is always at the forefront of technology and providing the latest proven techniques to help you with your foot problems. At Adler Footcare we believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
